What do I need to bring?
Helping hands, a sense of humor, something to sit on, a blanket just in case the evenings are chilly, yoga mat is essential if you want to practice yoga, sun hat and wellies, it is England after all, any camping gear you need unless you are hiring a bell tent (please email us if you are interested in this) and anything else you need to be comfortable.
Can I bring my dog?
We have a “no dog” policy for this camp.
What is Ashram style Dinning?
Ashram style dining is where we all sit and eat together. Taking it in turns to serve or be served, the food is prepared lovingly on site by an amazing team of karma yogis (you are actively encouraged to help out in the kitchen and to serve the food). The food is vegetarian and all organic where possible. This way of eating brings us together more as a community with the preparing, and serving of the food, and eating together.
What is Karma Yoga/Seva?
At the camp we ask everyone to offer some minimal karma yoga/seva, this will usually consist of helping prepare food or helping out around the camp, in the chai shop etc., there are many small jobs that all need attending to and this forms the heart of the camp where we can learn to work and share together.
What does the word Sundara mean?
Derived from the Sanskrit सुन्दर Sundara means beautiful, graceful. Dara means strong, determined. It is also another name for the Hindu god Krishna who is the embodiment of love itself. The true meaning of Sundara is one that we feel should be felt in the heart.
I want to be a therapist at the camp, how does that work?
We seek to offer space only to those therapists who can bring their own beautiful healing spaces with them. We have observed in previous camps that those therapists and healers who set up an appealing structure in which they enjoy working in, find that they have the most interest from the campers. All therapists pay a basic reduced ticket rate and donate 20 per cent of their takings to the camp funds at the end of the camp. If you are equipped to offer a healing therapy in a lovely structure, and your all set with your blackboard / appointment book for campers to book themselves in, then please email us a brief description of what it is you offer and any other info you feel is relevant. firstname.lastname@example.org with the words therapist in the subject line. We will then get back to you if we have space.
We will also need a copy of your insurance certificate and qualification documents once we confirm you have a space at the camp.
