Our Course



now postponed to

9th – 14th August 2021

Exploring Psychological, Spiritual and Ethical Issues


In the end, in spite of great efforts on the part of Champernowne Trust and Hothorpe House it has proved impossible to hold the Summer Course as planned in 2020, in the face of Coronavirus and the safety restrictions necessarily imposed by the government.

The good news is that we have been able to avoid complete cancellation, and the course will now run from Monday 9th to Saturday 14th August 2021. We hope by then that we will be able to reflect on the our astonishingly relevant theme “Alone and Together” from a position a of greater security and greater clarity.

If you had booked a place for 2020, and have not yet done so, please contact admin@champernowne.org to let us know whether you want to carry over your booking to 2021, or to cancel and claim a refund.
