As a way of marking the seasons we have been creating beach labyrinths as a family and we would like to invite you to join us. Each session will begin with a period of collecting stones, shells and other natural materials to mark out and decorate the path of the labyrinth. We will then gather for some movement and meditation before embarking on our individual journeys into the labyrinth.

Work is now well underway on our extension and, as many of you already know, we have taken some time off this summer so we can enjoy our campervan and leave the builders to get on with some of the messy stuff! Although it is an extension, the new rooms are being built on the same footprint as our old coal sheds so in fact the building is not getting a large amount bigger, there will just be more usable space - and we've even been able to recycle the bricks!
We are not taking residential bookings this autumn as we are having some building work done. Bookings will re-open via Airbnb in early 2020. We do however have a programme of yoga classes and workshops running for the autumn, both here and at our lovely local community hall.
