Our Community Shop
We hold daily silent meditations - and you are welcome to join us, please ask for details. During these sessions we follow no particular school or methodology – but see these times as an opportunity to be still and silent and to reconnect with our inner selves - and life itself. We have a lovely new Sanctuary area situated on the first floor of the house in a large light room which overlooks the gardens.

Why not visit the local market town of Wimborne Minster, where there is a stunning Saxon Church with Norman and Gothic architecture. It is famed for its unique chained library and the tomb of King Ethelred, the brother of Alfred the Great. In all three monarchs are buried there.
