Course dates: 
Monday, 1 October, 2018 to Friday, 5 October, 2018
Schumacher College Experience Week

Facilitated by  Richenda MacGregor

Immerse yourself for a week in the vibrant community of Schumacher College. This course is designed to give you space to enquire into what has meaning in your life, and what role you wish to play in the world, while also being inspired and invigorated by some of the concepts and ideas the college is based upon and participating in the rich daily life of the Schumacher community.

Through talks, facilitated sessions and personal enquiry time this course will give you an opportunity to attend to your own personal questions and empower and enable others through group participation and active listening. The rhythm of the week will include elements and creative exercises that expand and support the Head, Heart, and Hands philosophy that is an integral philosophy of the college.

You will have the opportunity to attend a daily talk by one of our resident faculty on a variety of topics such as Gaia Theory, Complexity and social enterprise. You can also avail fully of our wide range of facilities including our gardens, library, meditation room, kitchens, and broadband internet. As part of the course field trips are planned which may take in the breath-taking scenery of Dartmoor, the nearby Devonshire coast, or the tranquility of the River Dart.

Overall this course aims to create some space for you to sit with your own current and personal inquiries as well as explore how the college functions and learn more about some of the exciting and innovative ideas that form the basis of teachings at Schumacher College.
