is having a fallow year in 2018
With Daverick Leggett, Brad Richecoeur and friends
With much consideration we have decided that after 24 continuous years of Qigong Camp we feel the need to take a year off.
We want to give ourselves time to refresh and revision this extraordinary event we call Qigong Camp and to reflect on its core values and intentions; a deep and spacious review of how we hold the camp.
There are many gifts in taking time out and an opportunity for us all to return renewed and strengthened. We are excited about this bold decision and we look forward to the next cycle in Qigong Camp’s continual evolution.
News of Qigong Camp 2019 will be posted here in the autumn.

Heart-ful and relational Dharma practice in a very supportive community of like minded people, in a beautiful, natural environment.
This camp is deeply rooted in the Buddhist tradition of Insight (Vipassana) meditation, as well as offering beautifully profound practices such as Inquiry, Ritual, Soulfulness, and the playfully transformational practice of Qigong, all within a framework of shared community practices. All levels of experience, age and fitness are very welcome.
About Our Camps
The beautiful secluded venue for all of our summer camps exudes both the peace and wildness of the moors. It is surrounded by hills, trees and bordered by the bubbling Holy Brook. We are within easy walking distance of the River Dart, with its swimming places and wooded walks, as well as the open moor and its magical wildness.
We have a selection of beautiful carpeted Yurts and geodomes, several with wood stoves, some with wooden floors, large marquees for cooking and eating, a sauna and especially made ‘compost loo’s. We bathe in the Holy Brook that flows through the site and have gas hot water on site.
Even though there is a sense of truly being away from civilisation we are only a few minutes away from shops and other amenities.
General Camp Guidelines
These are small, intimate camps with participants limited to approximately 100 adults and 40 children, including workers. We request that no drugs or dogs are brought to the camp.
In order to create the possibility of deepening into common-unity we request no arrivals after the starting day and no departures before the end.
We cook communally using mainly local organic vegetables and vegetarian wholefoods. We aim to cater for special diets as much as possible.
The children have their own domes and games and activities are offered for children aged three and above for the main morning and afternoon sessions. Under-threes need to have parental supervision.
