Re-evaluation of all values 7 day course in Bulgaria
Dates: 13-20 September 2022
In 2010 Peter Raine and Miriam Lancewood left modern civilization to live in the wilderness of New Zealand – with not much more than a pack, a tent and a bow and arrow. One year became seven, and eventually they hiked 5000 km through New Zealand and Europe. Presently the couple reside in an off-grid shepherd’s cottage in the Rodopi mountains in Bulgaria.
After a decade of leading a rigorous life in the wild, Peter and Miriam would like to share their unique perspective and stories in Gudevitsa (south Bulgaria). This course will involve seven days of practical philosophy lectures, dialogue and reflective exercises. As well as forest bathing, archery, hiking, lighting a fire without matches and making flat bread on the coals. The aim is to achieve practical steps to move beyond the limitations of every day life. This requires a re-evaluation of all values.
Inspired by philosophers like F. Nietzsche, J. Krishnamurti and Raimon Panikkar, Miriam and Peter will take the participants onto a radical journey into the unknown.
600 Euro per person. The fee includes the course, food and accommodation.
Due to limited places, the selection process is based on a good working knowledge of English. A background in philosophy is useful but not required.
