AWAKENING CREATIVITY
with Amitajyoti, Saraha and David Trillo

How can we live more open, loving, creative and engaged lives? What supports and inspires us to do this?

Alfoxton Park House is a big old mansion set in 50 acres of ancient woodland. The house itself is being renovated, and we are currently functioning as both a building site and a retreat space. This has been the basis on which a thriving and diverse community has been built, with the multiple purposes of renovating the buildings, nurturing the gardens and land, and hosting retreats, workshops and cultural events.
