A Gathering about all things Regenerative!

Enchanted is a co-created gathering that we host at Selgars Mill every year. This gathering is for anyone who wants to explore new ways of living and connect with others in the regenerative space. The purpose of this gathering is to create a space where we can reconnect with ourselves, nature and each other at a deeper level. When we do this, new inspiration, new ideas and new opportunities begin to flow.

Wed 3rd - Sun 7th July 2024

The golden thread of this year's Enchanted gathering is the idea of living the questions together as a community.

We have chosen 4 universal elements that enable us to live a regenerative life; Water/Health, Earth/Home, Fire/Wealth & Air/Relationship. We will be exploring these themes through a series of enquiry sessions that will get us out of our conditioned patterns of thinking in order to explore new perspectives and possibilities for action and change in our lives. 

We cannot solve our problems with the same thinking that created them. A different quality of listening, learning and leadership is required to transition us towards a more regenerative and thriving future. Enchanted offers a collective space for us to explore, experiment and envision the future we wish to build.

"To live an enchanted life is to be challenged, to be awakened, to be gripped and shaken to the core by the extraordinary which lies at the heart of the ordinary. Above all, to live an enchanted life is to fall in love with the world all over again."

Living the Questions

The core idea behind this year's gathering is 'living the questions'. We will be hosting 4 enquiry sessions around the themes of health, home, wealth and relationship. These sessions will flow into self-directed activities and discussions in an open space format which we like to call Community Playtime. 

Health & Lifestyle

What if you took a moment to draw your life as if it were a living system, a mycelial network of inter-connected nodes and relationships?

What does it feel like to be healthy? 

 

What is the relationship between our physical & mental health?

How do all the different elements of our lifestyle impact our wellbeing? 

What if we stopped thinking of health or burn out as an individual problem, but rather a collective challenge to tackle together as a family, community or organisation. 

Home & Placemaking

“Home” is one of the most complex, emotionally charged, and multifaceted concepts we ever had to work with. 

Home is like a Swiss army knife: it is everything in one. It is joy and pain, shelter and cage, memories and future, growth and withering, it is the place we never want to leave but cannot stay in forever, it is unalterable and always changing. It is the space we wish to shape to our own tastes but fear to be alone in.

What does our Homes say about us?

 

Does it reflect who we truly are or who we want to be? 

How do we make Home? 

What comes first, the place or the people? 

Wealth & Economics

What does wealth mean to you? How much is enough?
 

Where am I blocked in my work when it comes to incorporating circular and regenerative practices into my finances and work?

How can I embody regenerative principles in my work right now? Do I need to heal my relationship with money? 
What sort of traumas do I have from living in an extractive world? How do they manifest physiologically in my body and in my life?


What ways can I make money that don’t cause harm? What would our world look like if our economy was truly regenerative?

Self As Ecology

What does it mean to be ecological?

 

We exist in rich, fertile webs of relationships, deeply rooted in ecosystems and social systems that we (wonderfully) cannot be detangled from. In this session, we will discover ourselves as ecological beings, and explore what this means for being in relationship, including our experience of navigating Enchanted as ecological, and therefore entangled, beings.

What are we experiencing now, in this season, on this land, with this community? What season are we truly in right now, not just physically, but also spiritually and emotionally? Can we hold these pluralities together?

Do you have something to contribute?

Have you always wanted to run a workshop but never had the space to do it? Enchanted is a safe space to try it out and see what happens. Instead of polished presentations and expert panels, we invite our participants to step into the role of being facilitators. That's how we learn. That's how we grow.

Enchantment is about being fully present in the world.

To be 'enchanted' is to experience a profound and whole-hearted participation in the adventure of life. The enchanted life is one which is intuitive, embraces wonder and fully engages the creative imagination - but is also deeply embodied, ecological, grounded in place and community.

Awakening Our Childlike Wonder

Over many decades and centuries we have elevated the rational and intellectual above all other types of knowledge, whilst also teaching that we should mistrust the evidence of our physical senses. In doing so, we lost that sense of wonder, awe and belonging to the Earth that we felt when we were children. What if we could dedicate a week each year to bring a bit more enchantment into our lives? To remind ourselves of the beauty, magic and meaning that exists all around us.

Enchanted felt deeply nourishing, hopeful and inspiring. It is great to see so many pioneers concretely showing what it means to live and work regeneratively.

Enchanted was a magical place that had the world start to make more sense to me, meeting other people with such like minded work or mindsets .. and setting a platform for me to have more conviction into my work and life in the regenerative field.

At the Enchanted Gathering 2023 we came together in the name of regeneration to share knowledge and ideas and to connect with other changemakers around the globe. It as a really well facilitated gathering. The organisers managed to bring together an open-minded community with strong shared values. Leaving me motivated to follow my path and curious about all the new things I learned and was able to experience about Community Building, Deep Democracy, Embodies Relating, Circular Economy, Coliving & finding home, Trauma Work, Music and so much more... Looking forward to the next year!

Where are we gathering?

Enchanted will be hosted at Selgars Estate in Devon. We have agreed a two year lease and option to buy with the owner, which means that the ideas that we explore together during this event can grow into real projects and experiments. We can come back again and again to host retreats and celebrations, grow our own food and maybe even build our own homes and live here permanently as a community one day.

Enchanted is more than just an event - it is an invitation to envision what Selgars could become and how we can build a wider mycelium network of regenerative places and projects together. We are building a village and this is your chance to be part of its inception.

About Us

We are a non-profit community organisation that partners with nature locations to host community events and build regenerative villages.

Enchanted will embody and honour the values set out by Regens Unite

We (re)connect

As humans, we are a part of nature. We are connected with our environment, with our bodies and with each other. We are aware of the environmental impact of our actions and act consciously.
 

We all contribute

Participants and organisers are all considered equal members and contributors to the event and the Regens Unite commons. All voices are equally important in the conversation and we share responsibility to hold a regenerative space.
 

We regen

We leave the event feeling rejuvenated and we leave the venue and location in a better state after being there. We support local producers, source what we need from the local economy, and ensure that we utilize the budget with a focus on minimalism and usefulness.
 

We embrace diversity

We invite people from a wide variety of regen backgrounds. We make the event accessible for everyone to come, including locals, parents and people who need to travel and take time off to participate. The attendee list and schedule are curated to ensure balance, diversity, and space for underrepresented voices.
 

We cross-pollinate

The focus of this event is to bring humans from various regenerative backgrounds & perspectives together for intimate, thought-provoking exchanges as well as rejuvenating experiences. We create a safe and curious atmosphere through nurturing the relational fabric and community-wide rituals. From this connection, we can bravely explore new ways to regenerate and meet each other beyond labels and biases.

We are bringing together organisations from different industries to explore what it means to be regenerative and how together we can build a more regenerative future.
