The Realisation Festival

A gathering of unlearning and reimagining.

Date: 27.06.24

Price: From £425

27th - 30th June 2024

Realisation is a gathering that is part retreat, part symposium. It is for those actively working at the interface between society and soul, and who feel the gravity of our times. Over the course of four days (27th – 30th June 2024), you will engage with some of the most exciting thinkers and practitioners of our times, share experiences and expertise, music, movement, food and plenty of conversation.

Resourced by an astonishingly beautiful place that carries the memory of the complex struggles of generations and has inspired philosophical and political innovation for centuries, Realisation is a space to reckon with now, imagine alternative futures, and develop a sense of calling and response, independently and together.


The Hosts

As an educational space, St Giles’s green landscape encourages participants to reflect on their relationship to enquiry, dialogue and well-being as tools for social change. The setting will also provide a connection with the natural environment to help inform questions around our relationship with nature and the planet.

The gathering of thinkers and artists, pioneers and practitioners, performers and dreamers is hosted by the 12th Earl of Shaftesbury in collaboration with the team of expert generalists at Perspectiva as a charitable venture.
