&Beyond is a journey into the heart of nature, into our own playful heart
and into the awesome space occupied by our collective imaginations! 

Now in our third year are always listening, transforming and evolving.

This year we delve deeper into our work with the elements with drum rituals, meditative ceremonies and co-created mandala offerings to the earth. We dance and sing, chant and stretch, play and rest among the ancient oaks. We pass on the mythical word through fireside storytelling and performance. We bring in local crafts and world traditions. The workshops range from deep Kundalini practices to Forest Bathing and Fire Walking.
 

In the morning we have pranayama and meditations by the river followed by an early morning swim. The workshops include Kundalini & Hatha Yoga accompanied by live musicians, meditation workshops with the old oak trees that live on the land, gong baths, forest bathing, kirtan, sacred movement, chanting, poetry, singing, wild swimming, fire ceremony. The children’s camp is a place of safety and play while you go for a dip, for a workshop or for some r&r.

We will be eating fresh, organic, locally grown plant-based meals lovingly prepared according to Ayurvedic principles by Karen Buckland of Plant Based Pirate. Our gorgeous fruit and veg will come from Tollhurst Organic farm who use stock free farming to produce the lowest possible carbon footprint, cruelty free food. Their work is truly inspiring and aligned with our ethos of re-connecting and re-aligning with mother nature to live in more harmony. 

Welcome to the experience of rest and rebalancing in a magical setting
and of deep remembrance of true self and beyond.. 

Imagine coming home
to a wild & magical place.
To the cool water,
the whispering leaves
& the green grass shining in the sun.
Imagine the mighty oak,
the sacred place where
we come together again,
in consciousness,
singing in unison
under the stars, & Beyond.
