EVENTS Retreats and events up to the end of 2013 are listed below. Retreat leaders in 2013 include Angela Ashwin, Trevor Pitt, Graham Usher, Peter Selby and Di Williams. Early bird discounts of at least 10% apply on all events until the end of January.
We have to charge an economic rate for events at Shepherds Dene but are keen to involve people from all walks of life and offer bursaries to anyone genuinely unable to pay the full amount.
Our Events Programme can be downloaded below but is a fair size so why not Request a Brochure. It is so beautiful, you will want to own one for yourself!
