New Retreats at Sharpham
Wild food & foraging retreat
As you explore our awe-inspiring landscape, you'll learn contemplative practices, gather as you go and return to feast on wild food - with a greater appreciation of the land, and your place in the natural cycles and rhythms of life.
This retreat is part of our series of Woodland Retreats
- taking mindfulness & contemplative practice into the Great Outdoors for a deeper connection with nature in cosy, comfy, furnished bell-tents, pitched amid the trees.
Mindfulness for women
Most of our retreatants in Sharpham House and Woodland are women - although men are very welcome too.
New retreats for sufferers of burn-out
Sustaining Ourselves is a new 4-night retreat for anyone who is driven by a strong sense of purpose to make the world a better place. Retreats are scheduled for October this year and March 2017.
You might be a social or environmental activist or campaigner, a care-giver, or someone working in the helping professions who dedicates much of their time to the service of others.
Thanks to the generosity of a donor, a limited number of bursaries are available for those experiencing financial hardship (on a first-come, first-served basis). Contact the Programme Administrator
in advance if you wish to apply.
Sharpham mindfulness spreads across the South Hams
If you'd like to investigate mindfulness and you live around Torquay, then consider trying our new 1-Day Introduction to Mindfulness sessions we're doing there in September and November
We've got a full programme of 8-week courses of Mindfulness for Health & Well-being, either at Sharpham, in Totnes and at Torquay
Day of Silence at The Barn
There are special Days of Silent Meditation at The Barn throughout this year, including one on Saturday June 25.
Each day begins by meeting at The Steam Packet Inn in Totnes to register and start the walk up towards The Barn in silence.
A rose-y glow inside and out
Meditate on the beauty of this: a bloom from the climbing rose Etoile d'Hollande, which is currently decorating the West Wing at Sharpham.
It's a fragrant rose that not only looks good but tastes lovely too! Our cooks have been serving its petals in salads.
Don't worry: there are enough left for the bees..
"One touch of nature makes the whole world kin." William Shakespeare
