Deep Magic Retreat: Cultivating Connection

Our 2020 springtime retreat will take place in April (17-19th). Please join us for this magical adventure, exploring the connection between Nature and ourselves!

This weekend will give you the opportunity to engage with a remarkable landscape in which humans and other species live and work together. Through group practices and solitary exploration we will discover how we can bring together spirituality and practicality. Using a range of artistic, ceremonial and meditative processes developed specifically for this site, we will re-engage with our humanity as a harmonious part of Nature. The key themes for this retreat will be regeneration and relationship; bring your curiosity, your open mind, and a willingness to participate.

Ragmans Lane Farm is nestled in the Wye Valley on the edge of the Forest of Dean, in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. An hour from Bristol, Birmingham and Cardiff, the 60 acre site is one of Britainís most well established permaculture and organic farms. Ragmans has hosted numerous courses over many decades with teachers including Starhawk, Patrick Whitefield and Bill Mollison.

Accessible to novices, and beneficial for experienced practitioners, these days of practical deep magic will give you plenty of opportunity for personal transformation, learning and fun.

We will be staying in a superbly converted 400 year old barn, with three dormitory style areas (6 beds, 2 beds and 3 beds). The barn also has a comfortable sitting room, and a large dining room/kitchen, both perfect for socialising. The retreat includes full-board accommodation with delicious home-cooked vegan food, much of it grown locally, some at Ragmans Lane itself!

We will be using a separate meeting hall for indoor ceremony and practices, as well as several beautiful outdoor spaces.

The retreat runs from Friday 17th until Sunday 19th April.
Cost £300. Early Bird £250 (until 14th February).

Julian works with people to help develop their curiosity about the world, often in the context of historic buildings, museums, galleries and landscapes. His fascination with altered states has led him to explore techniques of changing consciousness, ranging from the highly formalized ritual drama of Freemasonry, through to the trance methods of witchcraft and the emerging freestyle shamanism of the modern psychedelic age. Julian is a leading contributor to His most recent book is the celebrated Getting Higher: The Manual of Psychedelic Ceremony.

We look forward to seeing you soon, whether here or elsewhere!
