August Dartmoor Yatra 2021

Friday 20 August 2021 to Saturday 28 August 2021
Price: 
£60.00

Connect fully with what it means to be in your wild nature.

 

We will walk across Dartmoor and camp in very basic sites each night. There will be opportunities for wild bathing and swimming. Enjoying the varied landscape and visiting significant stone rows and circles along the way.

 

A Yatra is a Buddhist walking retreat: a mindful celebration of our land and its ancient energies. During the day, we walk in silence and in single file, allowing space for a deeper awareness to arise with our companions, the landscape, and our thoughts and feelings. Along the way there will be plenty of pauses for conversation and rest. In the mornings and evenings there will be meditation, talks, discussion and ritual, as well as the basic business of cooking food and making camp.

 

As the camping is very basic and observing any COVID restrictions prevailing at the time, we may need to advise on things for you to bring. We'll send you information nearer the time. We will still have the support vehicle to carry your gear. Due to some moderate hill climbing, we will not be walking more than 10 miles a day. There will be plenty of opportunity to stand and stare.
