Event Details

What does the workshop cover?

By looking at how Monastery gardens have evolved throughout history we can learn how to create our own spiritual places.Using the Monastery garden as our template we will explore the spiritual history of the garden, how the 5 elements play a major role in its wholeness. We’ll explore earth energy lines & dowsing, the produce traditionally gathered from the garden & the significance of certain plants. You will then use this wisdom to learn how to create your own spiritual garden or outdoor space.

Do I need any special clothing or equipment?

As some of the workshop will be based in the Monastery garden we suggest you bring suitable outdoor clothing.

When is the workshop?

This one day workshop is on Sunday 13th August 2023 from 10am – 4pm.

How much does it cost?

The cost is £66.00 which includes drinks & a delicious vegan & gluten free lunch supplied by Christian Platts of the Active Wellness Centre Cafe on Lever Street, Manchester
