About Us

Embercombe is a charity based in a fifty-acre valley on the edge of Dartmoor. Our purpose is to be a powerful and innovative catalyst for the emergence of leaders and change agents who will take courageous action for a just, peaceful, and sustainable world.

Inspired by powerful indigenous teachings, deep nature connection practices and cutting-edge psychological and coaching models, our programmes have an ambitious goal. We seek to reconnect you to your deepest longings, to equip you to walk your path with strength and determination, and to ignite the fire of passion, confidence and authenticity within you. We empower you to follow the ‘twin trail’ of inner healing and spiritual deepening, and of outer action to change the world. For more information please explore our guiding principles and core programmes.

Embercombe also offers bespoke mentoring and coaching for individuals and organisations, venue hire for events and residentials, and educational programmes for groups of young people.

Embercombe is a registered charity. Our work would not be possible without the generous support that so many people provide in so many ways, including the thousands of hours of time that people give voluntarily each year and the many friends and supporters who help us financially.
