Fri 26 May – Sat 3 June – Oxfordshire

This annual, week-long camp pitched in a beautiful field surrounded by native trees and the rolling Chiltern Hills of Oxfordshire, is a wonderful holiday for adults, teenagers and children.

The Dances of Universal Peace are the main focus of Sacred Arts Camp. These simple circle dances, which can be wonderfully joyful and yet profoundly moving, are inspired by the wisdom and sacred phrases of a number of spiritual traditions. Essentially they are a form of meditation through sacred chants and devotional movements. Daily sessions will be led by certified Dance Leaders.

Voice workshops are also a major feature of the Camp. Experience the joy of singing together, explore your voice, discover harmony and learn beautiful songs from many different sources: sacred, African, gospel, contemporary and traditional. All workshops are with wonderful, experienced teachers.

Other activities include Circle Dance, the Wave (5 rhythms), drumming workshops, Yoga, Tai Chi,  sweat lodges, meditation, sharing groups, arts & crafts, and storytelling.

For children of all ages, camp is a wonderful opportunity for natural play and making new friends. There is a space for under 5’s and their carers to meet and play, with toys and activities provided.

Teenagers also form a vibrant community within the camp, creating music, sharing and forming long lasting friendships. They will be supported in organising workshops, games and sports.

Camping is in small circles of tents, around a communal fire with firewood provided. A busy programme of activities and events runs throughout the week, and venues include; a big top, marquees, yurts and tipis. There is so much opportunity to be or to do that you are unlikely to want to leave the site at all – there is even a shop to stock up on provisions! We have a lovely vegetarian café offering hot meals, cakes and a welcoming space!

Camp is above all a celebration, an opportunity to share a gentle creative space where spirit can move freely and community can thrive. Where people can connect with the rhythms of the earth and celebrate their creativity and honour the spiritual richness of our world.
