These pages are our first gathering which was held in Summer 2019.

Wider Horizons is being held at Wasing Park in a beautiful glade in ancient woodland surrounded by wild swimming lakes, ancient woodland and wildlife, just 45 minutes from London. Workshops and gatherings will be held in a giant yurt, incredible geodome and a magnificent stretch marquee, as well as in the open air.

The workshops are designed to help you open new parts of yourself.  The contributors include professors, doctors, lecturers, shamen, artists as well as other practitioners from a variety of healing disciplines. You are able to choose from a diverse programme that includes lucid dreaming, expressive dance, individual and group healing, shared story-writing, yoga and sacred singing. As well as learning new skills, you will have opportunities to explore questions about who we are and the mysteries of consciousness and our relationship with the physical world. Alternative views of the nature of mind and the universe will be presented for you to experience.

The vision quest combines an inward journey into yourself and an outward journey into nature. It involves finding a space in nature to meditate and receive a vision of what to let go of and what to bring into your life to liberate and empower you. There will be a sensory journey in the woods, culminating in a celebration around the fire.

Bring tents, caravans or campervans (Tents can be bought cheaply).  Alternatively, boutique bell tent accommodation is available (Click here for more info). Heated outdoor showers will provide for an authentic woodland experience. Culinary delights will be prepared in an outdoor kitchen by our experienced outdoor chef and the ticket price is inclusive of food for three days. All meals will have vegetarian and vegan options. Evening celebrations will involve music, singing, drumming and dancing around the fire. Bring instruments, drums, percussion and dancing feet.

Respect the land – no chemical soap (biodegradable soap will be provided by sinks, but please also bring your own for showering), if you light a candle put it out, no personal fires, if you smoke please bring a portable ashtray, leave no trace (be conscious of where you put rubbish – there are different rubbish bins for compost, recyclables, glass and land fill), no cars in the camping area – you can drive on and drop your stuff off, but then please take your car to the car park.

Respect others – no photography, no floor scores (if you find something take it to lost property)
