An Emergence Magazine retreat with Emmanuel Vaughan-Lee

Sharpham Trust, Devon, United Kingdom

We have arrived at a threshold: a liminal space where the world we have known is coming undone and new configurations are still taking shape. In this moment of great loss, possibility, and transformation, what are the stories we need to orient ourselves within our shifting landscapes?

Set in the beautiful countryside of South West England along the River Dart, this four-day, three-night retreat will offer participants ways of engaging with and navigating our present moment of unprecedented transformation. 

Building from our forthcoming print edition, Shifting Landscapes, this gathering will consider how Earth’s ancient patterns and pathways are changing rapidly, how cultural landscapes are undergoing seismic shifts, and how outdated myths are being discarded. Through lived experiences—talks, meditation, nature connection practices, walking meditation, writing workshops, and a special film screening—we will witness ways in which the world we have known is coming undone, and listen for the new stories that are emerging. 

Due to high demand and a limited number of spaces, we ask those interested in attending to submit a form expressing their interest. You will be notified via email as soon as possible regarding availability.
