LIVING WATERS, SACRED SPRINGS
November 11th 2018, 2–5pm, Dartington Hall gardens, Devon
Suggested donation £5–£10
This is an outdoor collaboration between myself with my Wellkeepers programme, and Sam Wernham of River Dart Wild Church, whose emphasis this year is on water.
‘In a rich communion of both silence and sharing, as always for Wild Church, local poet, author, well-tender and tree-keeper Roselle Angwin will lead us in a poetic exploration of Dartington’s Sacred Ground, beginning at the newly-rediscovered Holy Well. As you’ll be making notes (don’t worry! No previous poetry experience needed!) please bring a small notebook.
‘Offered on a gift economy basis – suggested donation £5-£10.
‘We’ll gather at 1.45pm by the ancient yew and old church tower in the heart of Dartington Hall gardens. (Paid parking is available on the Estate). From there we will make a slow pilgrimage to Dartington’s original sacred spring and well pool and on around the gardens. Times of silence will be woven together with some guidance from Roselle, including the opportunity for creative writing. We will draw towards a close, as ever, with a silent, collaborative and inter-spiritual communion.’
A subtext for me, on Remembrance Day, is to send our thoughts out to those we have loved and lost individually, those who are lost worldwide, and also our lost species.
Please come prepared to be outside in all weathers, so with plenty of warm layers and waterproofs – being slow and still outside can be much chillier than a brisk walk! We also recommend you bring something waterproof to sit on and a flask with a hot drink.
