With Jeff and Sue Allen

In this last year our way of life has been reduced mostly to our homes and we have felt trapped, our spirit confined on both a physical and a mental level. The answer is not that we all move to the country, but that we start to recognise how closely our physical and mental health is connected to the natural world. Our dis-ease comes from our disconnection to nature. The teacher Kahlil Gibran had a masterly grasp of humans and our foibles. Gibran warned of our disconnection from nature and spoke against our tendency for urban dwelling.

He spoke of the constriction of locking ourselves in houses and seeking comfort above all else. He spoke of our house representing our larger self: 

“It grows in the sun and sleeps in the stillness of the night; and it is not dreamless. Does not your house dream? And dreaming, leave the city for grove or hilltop? Would the valleys were your streets, and the green paths your alleys, that you might seek one another through vineyards, and come with the fragrance of the earth in your garments.”

It is time for us to let our minds and souls expand and escape this confinement, for the physical confinement we find ourselves in is a reflection of what we have done to our minds. Join us in rural Wiltshire to reconnect with nature and our nature. 

To ensure that we all remain safe and healthy, we ask that all attendees are vaccinated, or receive a negative Lateral Flow test at least 24hrs prior to attending the workshop.

There was nothing to fear because it soon became apparent that other ‘normal’ people had the same or similar problems to me.
