authorLawrence Cockrill

Our next retreat will be held at a time of year that is rich in festivals and celebrations. All Hallows, Halloween, Samhain, Diwali and Bonfire Night all come in a short cluster of days around October and November. Obviously, this is no happenstance. Alongside these, we have Remembrance Day when we recall the tragedy of war and the courage of many. There is a two-sided element to most of these events- the call for light in darkness, for the celebration of lives and the fear of death, the futility of violence and the desire for peace, the end of harvest and the beginning of the ‘darker half’ of the year.

We will be considering these themes and the rhythms of this season and taking an opportunity to ‘take stock’ of our lives in relation to our natural world, our city life and the wider world that we find ourselves in, with all its political and social challenges, through a mixture of ‘paying attention’ and creative practice.

In order to cover costs tickets are £5 for non members (members can attend for free)
