A Place to be Real Together

Families Week: Peaceful Warriors

Looking after ourselves nonviolently - for all ages


Sat 10 Aug - Fri 16 Aug 2019


Event is full, but you can join the Waiting List.


10% Summer Discount if it’s your first time at Othona

Othona West Dorset – the best seaside retreat on the south coast?

Creativity, community, spirituality… and fun!


Sun Tzu said “The wise warrior avoids the battle.” And Dan Millman: “Unless someone truly has the power to say No they never truly have the power to say Yes.”

In this ever more complex world, how do we teach our children to stay safe peacefully? This week for families will help us all become ‘peaceful warriors’, alongside all the usual fun, relaxation and friendship of Othona.

Join Iain Russell, Julie Leoni and Clare Cohen to explore physical and psychological ways of navigating different scenarios through games and reflection, so that we can all go into the world as peaceful warriors. Between them, your facilitators for the week have many years of experience in self-defence, martial arts, psychology and facilitation. And they and their own children love Othona!

Each Families Week is unique but click here to get a flavour of past events! (Or watch the video below.)

And to make it all easier, the eldest child - in a family with two or more children aged 3 to 18 - comes FREE of charge! What’s not to like?
