‘THE STARS EXIST THAT WE MIGHT KNOW HOW HIGH OUR DREAMS CAN SOAR….’
This extraordinary event is like no other. Prepare to journey into the mythic realm of the night, when all sensible, rational people are normally fast asleep in bed. We however, will hunt shadows and listen for the haunting cries of owls and foxes. We shall drink moonlight, chase shooting stars over the moorland valleys, we shall linger by curious streams and gaze in wonder at the new dawn breaking…
We will begin at dusk, climbing the hill to watch the sunset and welcome a waning full moon rising over the tawny moor. This sets the tone for a magical and mysterious night navigation through Dartmoor, taking our cues from nocturnal nature and the celestial star chart above us, pausing to reflect with moonlight and firelight, we will hear poems and stories that dream us deeper into this night’s secrets. After sunrise, we will share breakfast and go our separate ways to rest and sleep, with our hearts full and our perceptions of the dark changed forever….
This event is aimed at adults. It involves staying up all night and so we don’t anticipate many enquiries for children! If you would like to enquire about a young person coming along however please do get in touch.
