years. It was uplifting and inspiring. The group facilitation was

excellent...You won't get a better welcome or looked after with such generosity

Many local and regional groups use Laurel Farm Temple and land for their retreats. Come for half a day or longer and benefit from the stillness and harmonious energy of this spot.  You can be as self contained as you wish: self cater or take advantage of food provided and the huge variety of workshops on offer.
