The Heart of What Matters - Making Meaning in a Time of Crisis workshop

The Heart of What Matters: Making Meaning in a Time of Crisis

Friday 12 July - Sunday 14 July 2024
Emerson College, Forest Row, East Sussex, UK

“It is only with the heart that one can see rightly; what is essential is invisible to the eye.”
Antoine de Saint-Exupéry, The Little Prince

This weekend Circle of Trust® retreat is an opportunity to pause and see ourselves and our world afresh.

We’re in a period of profound disruption and transition. Many of our institutions are faltering and failing: the old ways cannot hold. The multiple crises are calling for a radical response from each of us – radical meaning going to the root (radix).

What does a meaningful life look like now? What really matters?

During the weekend we will gently shift the focus of our attention drawing on intuitive and embodied ways of knowing, including the wisdom embedded in nature. We’ll explore our sources of meaning, not as ideas but as lived experience. And we’ll give time to explore how you sustain yourself whilst living in the gap between your deepest aspirations and everyday reality.

The retreat is a call to come home to ourselves and connect to the heart of what truly matters.

Participant feedback from our previous retreats

“ What I loved about it was the meticulous care with which all aspects of the weekend were carried out, which enabled a great sense of safety to develop, and so the possibility of deep and meaningful work. It all felt fresh, and  as if it had been prepared with an attitude of love and care. ”
Pattie Horrocks, July 2022

“ What a gift of a day. Beautifully held in a magical place with a balance of thoughtful provocation and silent reflection. I came away feeling deeply content and restored. ”
