Philosophy in Nature – course

Re-evaluation of all values
7 day course in Bulgaria

Dates: 27 September – 5 October 2021

(This course is full, but please sign up as an early bird for May 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 stories and insights in Gudevitsa (S.E. Bulgaria).
This course will involve seven days of practical philosophy lectures, intensive dialogue and nature based exercises.
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.

The fee includes the course, food and accommodation, but excludes travel and Covid testing.

Course costs:

Early Birds: 500 Euro per person.

Late Birds: 600 Euro per person.

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.
