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 17th-18th 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. Details.

The Mystic Garden and the Sanctuary of the Heart – An Autumn Retreat with Philip Carr-Gomm at the Fintry Retreat House, home to the Fintry Trust, set in beautiful countryside in the Surrey Hills with woodland walks and extensive views across the landscape. 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.
