10 November 2020 update

Julian CarnellTrust Director Julian Carnell says:

As we have entered another period of lockdown we have been forced to cancel our activities during November. This will be especially disappointing to all those who had booked on our courses and retreats this month.

We are unsure about when we will be able to reopen but in the meantime we are offering online retreats for which the feedback has been excellent.

We know that people can be put off by the thought of spending time online but actually participants have said how much they have appreciated these online interactive offers.

Online Retreats
