Hucklow Summer School: 19th-26th August 2017

‘Walk Your Path With Joy: Finding Hope and Resisting Despair in Turbulent Times’

‘Help us fulfil what lies within the circle of our lives – each day we ask no more, no less.
Untangle the knots within, so we can mend our hearts’ simple ties to others…
Free us to walk your path with joy!’ Neil Douglas-Klotz – ‘Prayers of the Cosmos’

As we march, mosey, and muddle our way through life, each of us will encounter all sorts of personal challenges on our travels. In addition, we may feel increasingly overwhelmed and powerless in the face of current world events, political currents, and environmental crises. How can we keep our heads up in hard times, without turning away from the world’s woes, and stay engaged to do our bit for the common good? This week at summer school, through daily talks and engagement groups, we will explore the ways in which we can find fulfilment, connection, hope and joy along life’s meandering path.

Further details of our engagement groups and team of facilitators can be found on the ‘Programme’ page (click here).

A New Website for Hucklow Summer School

Welcome to the new website for Hucklow Summer School which will be updated and expanded with contributions (words and pictures) from summer school participants as they come in. Please do send us any materials that you would like to share!

Hucklow Summer School focuses on matters of religion and spirituality and intends to draw out and develop the potential of all participants. We aim to provide a balanced programme, offering a rich mix of activities for both the heart and head, and a variety of optional sessions showcasing a range of worthwhile activities which participants might ‘take home’ and try out in their own congregations and communities. We also ensure that there are plenty of opportunities for relaxed fellowship and fun during the week. Engagement Groups are at the heart of summer school and provide a safe environment for deep exploration and personal relating. Morning Theme Talks provide a contrast in style to the small group activities, stimulate dialogue on religious and spiritual matters, and allow participants to engage with the topic on an intellectual level. Summer School also provides opportunities for daily spiritual practice such as morning meditation and evening epilogues.

Hucklow Summer School brings fellow Unitarians together and allows them to get to know each other deeply and form lasting and meaningful connections. It is our hope that participants will be inspired and challenged to develop and promote high-quality religious education activities when they return home.
