Peoplecare retreat costs lowered

Permaculture and Peoplecare course/retreat

25th -30th Sept

STOP PRESS: We have reduced the costs of the course by self - catering as a group.  This will enable us to come together and share our skills in the kitchen.  All the ingredients will be brought in advance and we will share our cooking.  The costs now are £220 concessions, £280 low waged, £360 waged.  We do not want the costs to be a barrier for anyone attending so please do talk to us if you need to.  We need to know numbers by 12th September so please express your interest by then.

Venue; an idyllic retreat centre in South Wales.  For full details see


As summer draws to a close and autumn beckons we open ourselves to a more introspective time.   The transition in the seasons will be mirrored in our own transformation and deep learning through the week.  A time for reflection, recovery from the busyness of the summer months, celebration of our harvests and  visioning the path ahead.     We will have space to be with like minded people and time to share and work on our own personal goals and aspirations, as well as discussing bigger picture issues and expanding our application and understanding of permaculture.

Initially we will share our hopes for the week and decide in a fluid and easy way the peoplecare skills we would like to focus on.   And of course there will be peoplecare in action with walks, singing, music, food, fires, gong baths and games. Looby, Jules and Stef will combine their talents, multiple skills, experiences and wisdom to create space for inner growth, relaxation, and deepening into being a healthy presence in and for the world. This week is a blend of course and retreat that will nourish us on many levels.

How are we going to move forward in our own lives and step into our own leadership and power? How can we motivate others? These are just some of the questions that will prompt our journey.
