The Sharpham Trust is an educational charity set in a stunning riverside location near Totnes in Devon.
The Trust provides opportunities and educational facilities that encourage:
- An understanding of the interconnection of life
- A deep respect for the natural world
- A belief in learning through experience, creative engagement and enquiry
- An acknowledgement of the value of stillness and awareness
It does this through offering various courses and programmes including mindfulness, retreat opportunities, environmental activities, forest school, crafts, conservation and volunteering.
The Sharpham Outdoors Project provides environmental activities, forest school, crafts and conservation and volunteering opportunities for groups in or out of education as well as public events.
The Barn Retreat’s purpose is to teach and support the development of mindfulness practice in everyday life, supported by Buddhist meditation methods. It is also a place where people re-connect with themselves and nature in a tranquil, supportive environment.
