Woodgate Farm is a place of sanctuary from the hustle and bustle of our everyday lives. It is set in 22 acres of pastureland with 10 acres of ancient woodland. The charm of the seasons is reflected in the wood; bluebells, wood anemone and wild garlic fill them with their colour and scent in the spring; summer brings a denser, cooler canopy, autumn brings chestnuts and the muted yellows and oranges of the leaves and in winter, the crisp frosts create a magical land of silver and shadows.


The retreats are run on the guiding principle of the Unity of Existence; study, meditation, reflection and meditative work centre around this tenet. The premise that runs through our work here at Woodgate Farm is that Love is the prime motive in existence. There is nothing that we do that doesn’t affect or is not affected by the Universe. Our retreat courses are open to everyone, no matter what your belief, background or origins.


John and Carolyn who facilitate the retreats, have studied, lived and worked at Chisholme House, which is home to the Beshara School of Esoteric Education.
