For this weekend there is the chance to meet and work with Nick Stark and plunge into a vital, Shamanic version of Joanna Macy’s 'Council of All Beings'

Within the many shadows that cloak this world lie innumerable shining points of light. These are the seeds of consciousness which yearn to expand and connect through individual and collective acts of creative wholeheartedness.

So, between the 26th - 28th October we gather at The Clophill Centre, Bedfordshire to honour all our ancestors as we reconnect with Nature, remembering deeply our embeddedness in life and our biological and ecological history...


After the Agricultural and Industrial Revolutions we have reached a turning point in our time on this Earth. This has been called The Great Turning. Based on the work of Joanna Macy The Council of All Beings is aimed at opening our consciousness to this point of turning and to the wisdom and understandings that arise when we listen to the voices of the other lifeforms who are our companions in this great adventure of Life.

Two days of exploring what we receive from the abundance of Life as well as what we have to lose, and how the Shining Self can wake up within each of us to act as advocate for these, the voiceless ones.


Singing, crafting, drumming and dancing in a magnificent and powerful ceremony where All Beings have an opportunity to enter into Council, speak their truth and be heard…


There will be soup and bread suppied on both days and also Saturday evening. It would be appreciated if extra food was brought to be shared over the weekend.
