Creative Change Camp
Rites of Passage and Community
Gloucestershire 4th – 13th August 2006
Every summer, around the ancient festival of Lammas, people of all ages and from many walks of life, gather together for 10 days and collectively create a safe and caring community, living closely with nature. This forms the energetic structure in which a variety of workshops, ceremonies and celebrations take place, and is the spirit of Oak Dragon Camps.
For 2006, the camp will be focussing on change and transition both in our personal lives and beyond. As we change within ourselves, learning to live in more inner peace, so we can bring that back from the camp into the outer world, integrating our experiences, thereby making small changes to society.
"Inner peace leads to world peace" H.H. Dalai Lama
Rites of Passage, celebration and ceremony, held within a supportive and caring community so frequently lacking in today’s western society, is an important part of acknowledging changes within ourselves, helping us to move harmoniously through times of transition.
Events at the camp may include:
- Guest Speakers
- Shamanic Journeying
- Sweat Lodge
- T’ai Chi
- Vision Quest
As well as ceremony, there will be opportunity to explore the theoretical and creative sides of life’s changes, with a variety of workshops exploring the ways and means of change, as practised in a variety of cultures, and craft and music workshops to explore with fun a creative expression of our individual or collective transformational journey through life.
It is amazing the magic that can be created in a field, on an organic farm close to beautiful woods near Cirencester! Come and be amazed, create, have fun, share in celebration and ceremony, make new friends, and return to normal life. To “be the change you want to see in the world!” (Ghandi)
