‘Spiritual Landscapes’

A literary and artistic retreat which draws upon the beauty of nature as an inspiration and provides an opportunity to spend time in personal reflection.

Spiritual Landscapes is a literary and artistic retreat which draws upon the beauty of nature as an inspiration and provides an opportunity to spend time in personal reflection. Artists, poets and spiritual thinkers across the ages have left us profound and moving reflections upon life using nature as their focus. A series of carefully selected meditations in word and image will form the heart of this retreat, together with walks amid the beauties of the Brantwood estate in the heart of the Lake District.

Spiritual Landscapes is structured to help you deepen your appreciation of the natural world and the long traditions which explore our relationship with it. At the heart of our programme will be the unique opportunity to look at John Ruskin’s writings and watercolour studies in the very landscape of their inspiration. Brantwood is a place with a very special spirit, providing room in which to share discovery and in which to find solitude. You will be in a creative environment that encourages you to find expression for your own feelings without pressuring you to do so.

Spiritual Landscapes will give you the opportunity to slow down and connect on a deeper level with yourself and the natural world around you, leaving you feeling renewed and reinvigorated.
