A Place to be Real Together

Othona's History in Print

Dorset Magazine in July carried a feature article (by yours truly) about the history of our site, the remarkable woman who bought it 100 years ago and the community she established here before Othona.

Here's the article about Adela Curtis and her community. There are some fine historical and contemporary pictures too.

Back in July, Othona hosted a wonderful weekend of talks and presentations called 'Adela Curtis Centenary Celebrations', inspired by the research of our very own Core member, Liz Howlett. Liz shared fascinating material from her researches into Adela and other members of her community. The weekend also included a guest speaker, Professor Jane Shaw, from Oxford University, who has looked at Adela's teaching on meditation and self-sufficiency. This was a truly unique event which was enjoyed by a group onsite here at Othona AND via Zoom!
