Moving with the Seasons - Spring & Summer Connection
with the Anam Cara Community

28 April - 5 May

This year, ‘Moving with the Seasons’ combines aspects of our popular workweeks alongside a deeper sense of retreat.
Both the ‘Spring’ and ‘Summer’ Connection will be shaped by a daily rhythm of morning meditation, and mindful morning work periods out on the land, with the rest of the day devoted to a range of creative, stimulating and nourishing activities led by members of the Anam Cara community.

Mornings will be spent in mindful work periods (SAMU) which will include various gardening projects around the Croft, building maintenance, and tending the murmurings of new projects still in their infancy.

Afternoons will be more relaxed with optional offerings of sound work, mindful body movement, nature art, and sharing circles, to aid relaxation and wellbeing.  There will also be free time to explore the local woodlands with wild swimming options!

Evenings will include Meditation, film night and sauna and will conclude with an outdoor sharing circle around the fire on our final night (weather permitting).

This all adds up to a wholesome and nurturing week of community living, with activities to suit all levels of skill and energy.

Both weeks include communal cooking, so there will be plenty of opportunity to explore your culinary skills or any favourite vegetarian recipes you would like to share!
