About This Course

We prioritise our work, our families and our friends but how often do we put love at the top of our list?   Love is the nourishment that feeds all aspects of our lives but sometimes we neglect it.  As a result we can feel isolated, lonely and dissatisfied with our lives.

This weekend has been specifically designed to give time and space to consider the importance of love in our lives. True love takes courage and means letting go of fear but how do we cultivate this?  Before we can love others we need to love ourselves but how is this possible?

Satish Kumar will lead group work as well as sessions for those seeking answers to these questions. 

Throughout the weekend there will be opportunities for quiet meditation and reflection as well as a Qigong session led by June Mitchell.  Participants will also spend time in the tranquil surroundings of the historic Dartington Estate and discover how love can bring joy in life.

Satish Kumar

Satish Kumar

Satish is a former monk and long-term peace and environment activist. He has been quietly setting the Global Agenda for change for over 50 years. He was just nine when he left his family home to join the wandering Jains and 18 when he decided he could achieve more back in the world, campaigning for land reform in India and working to turn Gandhi’s vision of a renewed India and a peaceful world into reality.

In 1973 Satish settled in the United Kingdom taking up the post of editor of Resurgence magazine, a position he has held ever since, making him the UK’s longest-serving editor of the same magazine. During this time, he has been the guiding spirit behind a number of now internationally respected ecological and educational ventures including Schumacher College.

Short Course Bursaries create an opportunity for an individual to experience the powerful transformative learning by joining a course that assists the participant to inspire their wider community and benefits from the participant’s own unique contribution. It is our hope that our bursaries support a wide cross section of participation on our short course programme. The number of bursaries available is limited, competition is strong and funding is not always available for every short course. Please be aware that most bursaries are in the region of 10% – 20% of the course fee so please be prepared to raise funding from other sources.  A bursary award is not intended to cover travel or incidental expenses.

Applications are viewed on a case-by-case basis and we are unable to enter into discussions on any decisions. We generally have many more applications for bursaries than we have funding available. We can only offer one bursary per person per year and priority is given to those who have not attended the college or received a bursary before. To help us support as many people as possible, please only apply if you would be unable to attend the course without a bursary.
