Global Programs

You are invited to co-create a unique exploration of unitary caring science. Inspired by the gentle beauty of the Dorset countryside, this will be a simple, informal, weekend gathering, based in the village hall of Cerne Abbas, which is located at the foot of the world famous ancient monument, the Cerne Abbas Giant and is a short walk from the ruins of a small abbey and holy well. Once voted Britain’s most desirable village, Cerne Abbas is utterly charming and a perfect place to find stillness, a quiet mind and an open heart.

Open to moments of tranquility and compassion in nature, our time together will be a space for reflection, creativity and meaningful dialogue. In addition, local author Peter Knight will lead a guided walk around the village, initiating exploration and discussion of ancient earth energies, symbols and rituals.

As we gather as friends and walk in this special place, we will think about the caritas processes, caring relationships and how unitary caring science may help us personally, in our practice and our world.

The cost of this exciting 2 day walkshop is £95. This includes lunch and refreshments on both days. There is plenty of B&B accommodation in the area and there is also a campsite near by.
