Hello and welcome, we are Basia and Bertrand. We were so touched by the Camino that we moved here, to live our lives next to it and to give what we can to others on the Way. We put all that we are into refurbishing our home to create a nourishing and tender space to receive you. We hold space, supporting pilgrims on their journey and all those seeking some time on this soulful path.
Throughout the year we host and run retreats that nurture the inward journey, expression, connection and community.
We are especially dedicated to helping you explore the subtle riches to be found grounded in tradition and contemplative creative practises. Like the Camino they also invite us into embodied experience, meaningful process, Self discovery and Beauty. No prior experience necessary and open to all.
Everybody needs beauty as well as bread, places to play in and pray in where nature can heal and bring strength to body and soul.
We are artists, educators and retreat facilitators passionate about holding space for creativity, contemplation and personal growth. Basia Goodwin (MA) studied at the Prince's Foundation School of Traditional Arts. Bertrand Gamrowski (Phd) has an educational background in mathematics.
We specialise in the use of geometry in sacred art and philosophy and are particularly inspired by the parallel between pilgrimage, contemplative practise and the process of creation in traditional craft. Through our creative practise we have been researching the sacred art and architecture of the Camino and northwestern Spain.
With recognition and deep gratitude to professor Keith Critchlow and Paul Merchant for planting seeds and inspiring many.
