A Place to be Real Together

Welcome to Othona West Dorset

A beautiful seaside spiritual retreat...
Combining the experience of community life...
with the arts, nature, contemplation & relaxation...
And, as we say, a place to be real together.


You're new to Othona?

We hope you'll enjoy finding your way round this site. It's still being added to - feedback welcome .:-)

Browse around Our Centre, FAQs and most important our Programme of 2017 events.

(You can filter search, just for specific types of event, or see the whole list.)

Maybe we'll be seeing you? Try the Meet Us page.


You're an old Othona friend but new to this website?

We see it as a step forward - launched in late November 2016.

Mostly what you had on the old site is here, plus blogs and social media.

More than that, this site adapts its screen views for tablets and mobiles.

Navigation is better, with more visual content, fewer words.

Still to come: Othona music online and new videos of the Centre, shot by people and drones!
