Being dogma free and unconfined in outlook, the Gaunts Community can be described as inevitable, spiritual, nurturing and organic. We are dedicated to Profound Learning and to providing and maintaining a peaceful, inspiring environment for ourselves and others.
At Gaunts we value and support each other as friends and extended family. We seek to maintain an open awareness of one another’s needs and we encourage Profound Learning both collectively and individually.
Our present structure includes guests, students, trustees, volunteers and employed staff. Our common purpose is to seek, find and follow our own path while remaining open to helping and supporting others. Daily meditation is encouraged, both individually and collectively; as is spending time in the beautiful grounds and countryside, and communing with nature.

Work in the community consists of running every aspect of a country house (from the organic garden to housekeeping) which is a venue for residential holistic courses of a creative, healing and spiritual nature. We all take part in daily tasks and are encouraged to have individual projects that benefit both us and the whole.
Our life here includes morning meetings, taking care of the house, meditation, Yoga, community sessions, community Meetings, ‘Hearth Times’, ‘Conversations’, sound baths, dance and much more.
Over the year we attend in-house training which involves Profound Learning (spiritual and philosophical) group sessions. Some additional sessions are provided by guest teachers and speakers. We also have the opportunity of taking part in some of the amazing courses which are held here.
Life at Gaunts can be intense, is often challenging but always rewarding. We invite anyone to come see for themselves and we look forward to meeting you. If you want to apply to attend a Community Experience Week and see if life at Gaunts is for you, then please click HERE

Once a year we host a Summer Gathering organised by the 'Heartbeat Group' which is made up of Community, Staff and a team of willing volunteers. If you would be interested in joining the team of volunteers or in attending the Summer Gathering 11th-15th August 2011, then please click HERE
Profound Learning is a name we use at Gaunts to describe the way in which we each may consciously reach into the depths of our innermost nature in order to evolve safe, positive, fruitful and loving lives.
We suggest that to be living life in harmony with our essential being is fundamental to each person’s health and happiness. Everything in nature is here to help us, and provides us with numerous clues if only we can learn to expand our awareness, listen and perceive.
Profound Learning helps us understand the ego, Consciousness and the Intelligence of Life, our long history and evolution, and fundamentally, the essence of who we are.
The simple concept of PL is that in ‘doing our own work’, (which we suggest is one of the principal purposes of an earthly incarnation), we find a right foundation on which to build our lives safely, securely, positively, usefully, constructively, soundly, REAL-LY. The danger otherwise is spin-off into the shallow waters of egocentricity and materialism, which compromise our lives, and is destroying our planet.
