Come and join us at Emerson College
to enjoy our beautiful campus and tranquil surroundings. 

Our gardens (22 acres) invite participants to go on walks to experience the wonder of nature in plants and trees. This creates a contemplative and safe environment which helps you to step out of your daily routine into a creative space.

Our facilities are simple, natural, with a lot of light; many sculptures by our students can be found in the grounds.

You can use our library and (if you wish) book yourself onto any short courses and lectures or simply just spend the time on your own. We have a varied programme from a weekly choir to storytelling courses and lectures.  Click here to find out more.

Our meals are vegetarian and we can also cater for gluten free, dairy free and vegan diets. We support agricultural practices that renew and sustain the soil rather than depleting it.  We are especially lucky to have a small biodynamic vegetable garden right on campus, providing us with fresh greens, lettuces, spinach, tomatoes, flowers and much more! Tablehurst farm (a community owned biodynamic farm) is just next door to us.

You will be staying in a single room in a house with shared kitchen and bathroom facilities.  Depending on the length of your stay we offer all meals or just lunches.

You are welcome to join our daily lunch wash up and meet new people and get engaged in the daily running of the College.

*Please Note: This offering is not suitable for people who are undergoing or needing medical or psychological treatment.
