Embercombe inspires people to deepen as human beings and take courageous action to change their world.
Embercombe in the City:
Spring Circles 2017
"Community spirit, simple and unexpected"
"A nice space and time to check in and reconnect"
Daily circle ‘meetings’ form the heart of lives at Embercombe. They offer a chance to connect with one another in a busy day, a space for discussion and reflection, underpinning a sense of community and purpose. Embercombe Circles will be held monthly throughout the Spring of 2017 in central London. They offer anyone who has been to Embercombe, or a guest of anyone who has been to Embercombe, the opportunity to gather in the heart of London and to feel a connection with the land, Embercombe's work and to each other.
This April, to mark the Beltane festival and celebrate the coming of summer we will be taking the Circle onto Hampstead Heath for a special outdoor city circle! We hope this will be a great way to sense nature and the natural cycles at play around us, in a more intimate way as we gather in circle. This will be a free event as opposed to the usual £7.00 we charge when holding it at Chaplin Close. Be sure to bring appropriate clothing to ensure you are comfortable on the Heath for a couple of hours at least.
For the Hamstead Heath Circle we will meet just outside Hampstead Underground tube station at 10 am. Hampstead is on the northern line (Black) on the Edgware branch. We will wait for 10 minutes before leaving for the heath. Mike and Joe will have their phones if you need to contact them (phone numbers in conformation email).
London Embercombe Circle dates are:
Saturday 18th March 2017 2pm to 4pm
Saturday 29th April 2017 10am to 1pm
(BELTANE: HAMPSTEAD HEATH CIRCLE)
Saturday 13th May 2017 2pm to 4pm
Who are the Circle meetings for? People who have been to Embercombe (whether as a volunteer, an attendee of one of the Embercombe Experience/Friends' Weekends or as a participant in one of the residential programmes). You can also bring a friend with you as long as you accompany them and book your places. This is to ensure that we attract a group of like minded people who are already familiar with the spirit of Embercombe.
Cost: £7.00 to include refreshments
Chaplin Close Community Hall
See googlemap above. Street directions and a map are also included on your booking confirmation and event reminder emails from Eventbrite.
We are pleased to be able to continue the Embercombe in the City series throughout the Spring of 2017. Circles will continue to be held at Chaplin Close Community Hall in March and May and in April we will be in Hamstead Heath. Chaplin Close, with its peaceful surroundings, outdoor space and community vibe has proved an ideal place to hold the Circles and our contacts, Hazel and Toni, are very happy for us to be there. We will continue to pay the modest rate of £20/hour to hire the space and the ticket money will be used to cover the cost of the venue, Eventbrite fees and some refreshments. If there is any money left over after payment of these items, we will donate it to Embercombe.
The Embercombe London Circles offer a space for people inspired and touched by Embercombe to reflect, share and connect in the heart of the city. The invitation is also there for anyone participating to bring their own thoughts and ideas on how the Circles might grow. The Circles will be hosted by Joe and Mike.
