Embercombe exists to touch hearts, stimulate minds and inspire committed action for a truly sustainable world. To help us achieve this mission, we ask three questions of people who come here: what do I love, what are my gifts and what are my responsibilities? We then explore how the answers to these questions can be used to guide you towards a life that contributes to creating the world of your longing and also a life of fulfilment and happiness. These are deep questions and not everyone is ready to explore them head on and plunge into the week-long programme of transformation that is The Journey. For this reason, we have created this experiential week, to provide an introduction to Embercombe, its people, its ways of working and the general life of the place. This is a week that is fully facilitated to allow a gentle exploration of the issues facing us in the world, whilst learning new skills and living as part of community.
Living in community, joining our daily morning circle, sharing the preparation and eating of communal meals and making a contribution to the daily activity at Embercombe.
