Joining Jack Gescheidt and Cara Gardner on their mystical tour through the English countryside: ‘Our group will dive deep into living history by spending time with sacred, historic and beloved trees hundreds of years old. And a famous yew forest with trees literally thousands of years old. In between, we’ll visit Neolithic monoliths from the dawn of European civilization.’ More details here.

The One Tree Gathering is a project initiated by the ICCS (International Center for Cultural Studies) and OBOD (The Order of Bards Ovates & Druids) to explore values shared by Pagan and Dharmic cultures. The aim of the annual gatherings is to provide a platform for our communities to exchange ideas and form relationships based on friendship, mutual understanding and shared values.
This year the One Tree Gathering is on 25th-26th of August at the beautiful Beaumanor Hall, near Loughborough. During the weekend we will have an opportunity to meet like minded people and take part in inspiring talks, discussions and interactive workshops as well as get to know each other around bonding activities. This year it will be based on the Tree and exploring your own ‘birth tree’ and what its values and qualities are. There will then be a tree walk to go and find your tree. Philip Carr-Gomm will lead us in experiences of Sophrology and a Druid Nidra, both of which combine Eastern & Western techniques and understanding. The price for the weekend is £50 and £60 with accommodation in the bunkhouse.To enquire please email firstname.lastname@example.org and check our Facebook page https://m.facebook.com/events/

The atmosphere of the house and grounds is perfectly suited to this contemplative retreat, with time for poetry and conversation about the spiritual life, and time for individual reflection, interspersed with healing and restorative meditations and exercises drawn from psychology and the wisdom traditions.
