Dear Friends

We are just home from an afternoon at the beach creating and walking a lovely twisting labyrinth path. We’ve been using twisting, turning labyrinths to mark the turning points of the year. Right now, half way between the Autumn Equinox and the Winter Solstice. We are turning towards the darkest time of year, and unless you are in the Southern Hemisphere I am afraid to say we are all turning together!

In our family we have many things to celebrate over the winter, and between Halloween and Easter there isn’t gap of more than three weeks without a birthday or celebration of some sort to be excited about! We have just added to our calendar a New Year Retreat (2020 Vision) at a magical wedding venue owned by friends and fellow yogis, which will be very special indeed.

We are also treated over the winter to the most magnificent sunrises and morning light shows from the front of our home, and this is a particular pleasure this year while out the back the construction work continues on our extension.

Please do read on for further details about our retreat in January and special events and workshops taking place over the next few weeks as we turn deeper into the dark time of the year.

Warmest wishes

Lucy & Henry

Extension Update

Work began to build our extension on 1 July and the main structure is now completed but there is still a lot to do to finish the interior. It has been built on the footprint of two out-houses with coal stores and outdoor loos, and from the same bricks. The new rooms are at the back of the house and will be used for a utility room, dining room, office and downstairs loo. The yoga studio and guest bedrooms are at the front of the house and have not been affected.

We hope we might have a functioning kitchen by the end of the year and plan to re-open for residential workshops, retreats and Airbnb from Spring 2020.
