Autumn Equinox

Come join us as we mark the Autumnal quarter of the transition through our 20th anniversary year, as we harvest the bounty of the Summer’s gifts.,.

Community, camping, ceremony, and a chance to be in and on the land of Embercombe and to experience a taster of what we offer.

Welcome to all – old friends and new – to share food, stories, songs and silence; to be together in this magical place.


Fiona Barnes

For me Embercombe starts with the land and the children:

I love the land and want to be part of it, to know it in greater depth each day – to become ‘reindiginised’ (a new word meaning for people to become reconnected to ‘their’ land).
I feel drawn to care for the animals; to care for them in a way that resonates with me and with Embercombe, i.e. to interact with them through connection…

For the children it’s all about connection. To grow to be healthy adults who can make a difference in our world, they need connection to their adults, themselves and the land. I am committed to a way of being with children that allows them to find themselves. I am interested in bringing the Hand In Hand approach in to our daily lives (with or without it’s title), it provides a solid framework for adults and children to grow.

I feel that my role is part of the development of Embercombe’s work – enabling parents to deepen in their vital work as leaders for their children, for the children to be given the foundation to deepen through their connection to themselves and for the animals to assist in that by being part of our daily lives.
