The Clophill Centre offers many unique spaces within the compound where you can connect with sacredness and explore deep inner and outer harmony. Their purpose is to help re-align you to your true potential through connection with the wisdom of Nature and the Divine. Finding these exquisite moments is the fundamental purpose of living. Here, you can experience this bliss.
These sites acknowledge the guardians of the land. They are honoured with regular communication and connection practices, which are intrinsic to our work at the centre. We dedicate time and space to these spaces where we celebrate the principles of the feminine and the masculine, as well as the essential elements of Air, Earth, Water and Fire. Our vision includes re-wilding sections of the land.
We honour the Divine through monthly sacred fire circles and the creation of reflective areas such as the earth chamber for meditation, the water shrine, and the open spaces to connect with the element of air. While you attend events or workshops at our centre you really should visit and spend some time in these areas. You’ll discover why they are so unique and special because you are so unique and special. Scroll down for more details.
Initiated by the Guardian of the Land, our Earth Chamber offers you a rare opportunity to spend time within the Great Mother. This 2m diameter space strides a positive ley line, thereby harnessing the energy of the earth. The Chamber was dug into the earth with dedication ceremonies. A beautiful, hand-carved wooden bench runs around the inside wall of the circular underground chamber, seating approximately 12 people. It is a wonderful place to immerse yourself in deep meditation and enhance your nature connection.
Envisioned and built with helpers by the Columbian Curandero Anthar, our labyrinth is dedicated to the Great Mother. It is set in stone at the power point of our premises, and is watched over by a big oak tree. Labyrinths promote mindfulness and introspection. Visit this sacred site and you won’t be able to resist the urge to kick off your shoes and stroll through it to the centre-point and back out in absolute stillness. Only the sweet song of birds will accompany your serenity. Try it, you’ll see!
The Water Shrine
As with the Earth Chamber, we were guided by the Guardian of the Land to create a sacred place where folks can connect with the element of water. Our Water Shrine draws pure water from deep within the earth and collects it in a tranquil pool, so that you can enjoy a quiet moment of reflection.
The Pan Altar
In the depth of our woods, an altar to Pan was raised in honour of the masculine. It is sacred place where you can connect with nature and the inner ‘wild’ part of yourself. It’s okay to express yourself fully here, because chances are nobody will see you. You’ll need to explore the woods to find it though, it’s been carefully concealed in shrubbery and trees.
