Voices of the Earth

20-22 September 2024
The course begins with the evening meal at 19:00 on Friday and ends with lunch on Sunday.

Glenthorne Guest House and Conference Centre


Woodbrooke and Glenthorne working in partnership.

A weekend of hands-on creative exploration, play and reflection seeking renewed perspectives for these complicated and unsettling times.

Paying close attention to the world around us, we’ll work with visual media and writing to stir up familiar habits of thinking about the planet and humanity, through creating something new. We’ll work sometimes in collaboration, sometimes alongside in our own quiet concentration to shed light from many angles on a timely and earth- centred question: how do we start again from here? Throughout our time at Glenthorne, we will stay grounded in our own direct experience as we seek for responses to a changing and endangered world.

This course will involve:
