SPIRIT HORSE is a place like no other! Hidden in a secret valley, it appears as an ancient tribal village, nestled in the wild woods, under a waterfall and glittering rock face. Spirit Horse has flowered into something unforeseen; an ongoing experiment in off-grid, eco-community living. But with tribal style!
The dream began with a few tipis pitched at the far end of a farm in a huge meadow. One of the aims was to host retreats on a shoe-string budget, the only budget we had back then! We did not know it at the time but something much bigger was destined to happen. People fell in love with the place and with something else that cannot be named. We grew, and a community was born.
A charity was created in 2002, and after ten years of fundraising something impossible happened; we bought 200 acres of land, with the sole intention of letting it all grow completely wild!
That land now surrounds our hidden encampment that has become a settlement of roundhouses, yurts and temples. Today it’s called rewilding, but back then we spoke of it as “returning her original face”.
If your wild side is calling then come, sit by our fire – there is a seat with your name on it. Come away to the wild! Let that part of you be addressed and blessed.
You can also join our monthly internship program, or our volunteer program or our building team, where you live and learn with us for weeks or months of immersion – welcome home!
Come! Come for ecstatic creativity, candlelight suppers, nights of fierce drumming and dancing, silent enquiry, tribal togetherness, stillness among the groves, temple living and saunas by the rock pools. Come to learn, lend a hand, laugh and be silly. Come to deepen and dream and give life to new dreams. Discover, learn, build, realign – and play in waterfalls!

This is my dream. Need to get out of this rat race.
How much money would I need to start up and survive

I just stumbled upon your website looking for a place to gather inspiration to create an ecovillage in Québec, Canada while I’ll be in England (planning to go see Russell Brand on the 29th).
Would love to come to learn about your story and process and sit with other likeminded souls around the fire.
Hope to hear from you soon before I fly on the 10th. 🙂
I would love to immerse myself in the community and volunteer and offer my skills as an acroyoga, thai massage and partner yoga teacher to the community. Please let me know how I can arrange to come stay.
Me and my family of six want to move too a off grid Setting, there is me, Dean my wife Louise and my 4 children I’m good at building I’m a carpenter, I believe the way society is living today is wrong and it’s just not for me and my family having no money and only skills to give and hard work and friendship I hope you get in touch.

This place sounds absolutely incredible!
What you have created here looks and sounds amazing.
I dream of selling everything I own and immersing myself in a community that has found a sustainable and spiritually fulfilling way of life.
If you are considering new members/volunteers then please consider me! I am a 33 year old male from New Zealand. I grew up on a farm and have a versatile set of skills.
Thank you for the amazing work you are all doing 🙂
