St Giles House


A gathering of unlearning and reimagining our relationship with nature.

The need to reconsider our relationship with nature has become palpable. Can we challenge ourselves to rediscover ways of relating to and knowing the living world around and within us? This must be done not only practically but, equally importantly, imaginatively.

This year’s Realisation weekend will be a journey of individual and shared encounter focused on this theme. Participants will be inspired by conversations with leading thinkers and economists, artists and activists who are addressing the matter at depth. How do we radically misunderstand nature? Are we uncoupled from our own natures? What light are current crises shedding upon our ways of living? Are we being invited to rediscover the nature of life from the inside out?

Alongside more formal conversations, the programme includes plenty of space to enjoy a variety of workshops as well as the parkland around St Giles House. The aim is to have the chance of engaging with unsettling difficulties and tremendous possibilities at the level of mind, body and spirit. The weekend also includes meeting in small groups to deepening the sharing of experiences and development of ideas. Music and dance, improvisation and yoga, food and fire are also included!

If you feel the pressure and the potential of being alive now and seek an opportunity to take a step back with others of soul and energy, do consider joining us.
