Weekend Camp


Re-connecting and re-vitalising is the theme.
A space to connect, drop down, celebrating being alive, and being together. We will huddle together, speak from our hearts, cry to the winds, laugh, shout, dance, sing; being together as simply as we can, as real as we can. We will give some time to explore:

  • What is AHPb and who is AHPb right now in Britain? On a body, heart and soul, roots and wings dimension – personally in each of us. 
  • How does Humanistic Psychology inspire and inform each of us in the day-to-day living of our lives?
  • How might we grow into an alive grass roots network for change and development at this point in human evolution?


We wish to see more events offered that support at a grass roots level the hunger and search for a deeper more connected living, and unfolding of our human potential. That whatever is going on in the world we can nevertheless go within, finding our inner resources and creativity, and experience the support and encouragement that is possible through a vibrant network of connectivity that we can both give to and receive from.

Small is beautiful:
For this camp there is a maximum of 18 places. We see this as an opportunity at this challenging time of our evolution for new seeds to come forth, new shoots and new growth from the ground of our being.

We will be camping on an organic farm with panoramic views. We have a beautiful 8 meter (26 feet) diameter carpeted bell tent with wood burning stove to meet in. We will dance on the Earth, and cook communally around an open fire. There will be space to relax, to meet, to dance, to share, to go for walks and to sit under the stars at night. Back to basics yet comfortable facilities include a sheltered field to camp in, fire wood, outdoor kitchen area, toilet, mains water, and an outdoor hot shower 24 hours a day.

Food:
Food is not included except for breakfast. We will create a cooking rota before the camp so you can decide with your rota team what food to bring for the communal meals. You might want to prepare something in advance. Breakfast, including muesli, porridge, eggs, toast and marmalade is included in the price. There will also be a washing up rota.

Dogs:
It is not possible to bring dogs to the camp.
