Qigong Camp Council 2019 is a five day council re-visioning Qigong Camp for the next 25 years.
This will be a much smaller camp with a very specific purpose, an invitation to members of the Qigong Camp community to bring your voice, your wisdom and experience in our far reaching review of camp culture. What works, what needs attention, what is waiting to be born? What is your vision for a healthy, vibrant Qigong Camp in 2020 and beyond?

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 110 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.
