About this Event

You are transforming. Your self, your life, your community, your world. You are committed to the renewal of humanity and planet Earth.

You are an Extinction Rebel.

How prepared is your body, your mind and your soul to share the great gift of your life with this world-changing movement?

We - Advaya Initiative’s Ruby and Christabel Reed and Beloved Sara Zaltash - are offering an easy-access, shared-costs weekend retreat designed specifically to nourish and strengthen Extinction Rebels.

Yoga Nidra. Movement. Breathwork. Meditation. Nature Connection. Devotion. Vocalisation and Song. Visioning. Divination. Trust Building. Heart Circles. Deep Listening. Grief Tending. Creative Celebration.

** If you would like to facilitate a session please get in contact with us. **

We know you need this, so we radically changed the way that the costs of this retreat will be met. As long as essential costs are met, for as little as £1, you are welcome to participate. For more information, see “Our Approach to Costs” below.

Come to swim in the river, relax in the garden, and bathe in the woodland. Come to explore your senses and relishing in the abundance of the natural world. Come to engage in a more holistic approach to social change. Come to be inspired, nourished, connected and prepared.

Let’s get ready, together.

How we will deal with Costs:

We know that sharing resources equitably is an essential part of regeneration. We know all Rebels have so much to give, and so we have to create capacity to receive what desires to be given. In order to do that, let's begin with full transparency regarding the costs of running this retreat for you.

Our Costs:

Venue Hire: £800. The Quadrangle Trust is a registered charity and they are generously supporting this weekend by subsidising the venue hire costs. We are so grateful for their vision and commitment to Extinction Rebellion. Thank you Jessie and all at Quadrangle.

Food: £20 per person for three healthy vegetarian meals per day for three days. Rather than hire a catering team, we will cook for each other, tend to each other, and care for each other, reinforcing our community bonds and reducing unnecessary expenditure.

Facilitation: Ruby, Christabel and Sara are activists and artists. Between us we have 35 years of professional facilitation experience. We can only sustainably organise and facilitate this retreat (on top of our ongoing voluntary XR commitments) if our professional skills are valued.

That’s it! No expensive publications. No unnecessary add-ons to bump up the costs. Just time, space, food, facilitation and togetherness.

Our minimum cost to hold this retreat for 20 people is £1800.

That’s £90 per person to be at maximum capacity, but you can also give less, or more. Alternatively you can pay by transfer or paypal: https://paypal.me/pools/c/8imzejCPdq

Some people will give considerably less, even nothing, and some considerably more. You are invited to stretch into receiving as well as giving. We want to make sure that everyone who wants to be in the room can be in the room.

However much you can share, we’ll make sure you have plenty to eat, and that you’re in excellent company in beautiful surroundings while you nourishing your soul with supportive and strengthening activities. Whatever you have to give, there is room for you at the Rebel Retreat!
