Julian CarnellTrust Director Julian Carnell says:

Happy New Year from everyone at Sharpham.

Our centres are now closed and we are only offering online retreats at the moment. We aim to restart in-person retreats in April and we will be putting these online in the next couple of weeks. We anticipate there will be great demand so the best way to stay updated is to sign up to our email newsletter.

We know that this is an extremely difficult period for many people and we are aiming to get back up and running as soon as is possible.

In the meantime please do consider joining one of our online retreats. The feedback is very positive, with participants reporting how supportive they have found them.

We have also put our esteemed 8-week course in Mindfulness for Health & Wellbeing online.

Stay safe.


If you would like to help Sharpham through this difficult time there are three ways to do so. You can:

Online Retreats & Courses

Man in headphones meditatingOur online retreats are proving very popular. We are keen to retain the unique characteristics of a Sharpham experience so, unlike many online offerings, we limit the numbers to retain small group interaction and sharing opportunities.

We are also offering our 8-week course in Mindfulness & Wellbeing online too, offering a tried-and-tested route into meditation.

Lastly all of us here at The Trust hope that you have the support needed to navigate these difficult times. We are supporting and maintaining our community here at Sharpham through this time via our large collection of free meditations that you can play or download from our website here:

We hope that your involvement with Sharpham will help to sustain you in these difficult times and we look forward to welcoming you back to the Estate in the near future.
