Gaunts House Community
The community at Gaunts House is informal and more inevitable rather than intentional. We are dedicated to profound learning and to providing a peaceful, inspiring environment for others.
Our structure includes guests, students, trustees, volunteers and employed staff. Our purpose is to seek, find and follow our individually right path providing care and support for others. Meditation is encouraged, both individually and collectively; as is spending time in the beautiful grounds and countryside, communing with nature.
The work in our community consists of running every aspect of a country house (from the organic garden to housekeeping) as a venue for residential courses of a creative, healing and spiritual nature. We all muck in together with chores and are encouraged to have individual projects that benefit the Charity. Regular meetings cover the day-to-day practicalities.
Whilst there is no defined doctrine here, a faith in the timeliness of all things enables life to run fairly smoothly, if occasionally a little chaotically. After all, with Divine chaos, it’s the divine that counts.
Life here is sometimes intense, often challenging but very rewarding. We welcome anyone to come see for themselves and we look forward to meeting you.
Once a year we host a Summer Gathering organised by the Community, Staff and a team of volunteers. If you would be interested in joining the team of volunteers or in attending, please follow the link www.gauntshousesummergathering.blogspot.com
