Retreat

In order to get the maximum benefit from the retreat we encourage full participation in the program. However, this is also your retreat and if you feel you may just need some quiet time and not attend one of the classes, then, of course, no problem. Just a gentle note that the retreat space is not a hotel, we ask that each person helps to clean up after themselves in order to maintain the cleanliness and purity of the centre during the weekend.

Retreat location

Just five miles from Glastonbury, on the edge of peaceful Compton Dundon village, EarthSpirit lies within the ‘temenos’ (sacred enclosure) of Avalon. The centre has twice won the Kindred Spirit ‘best centre’ award and recently the top 'Gold' award from Green Tourism for the many innovations and sustainability features at the centre.

Situated between two hills, one a site of special scientific interest (SSSI), the other a nature reserve. The centre is just two minutes walk from St Andrew’s church, which has within its cemetery a yew tree that’s more than 1,800 years old. Our retreat is in beautiful Little Earth, a purpose-designed retreat centre which is part of the EarthSpirit complex. The lovely light yoga space has a wooden floor with underfloor heating and a view of the garden.
