KIA Retreat Summer 2012

After last Saturday’s KIA meeting I could not help but feel that it would be great to meet up again, possibly in a bigger group and for more than just one afternoon. It’s not easy for most of us to afford and find time for travels but I found the meeting so rewarding that I think we ought to do it again. I propose a short 2-3 days retreat in some self catering place like a hostel or a campsite, possibly in a remote location, out in nature.

I don’t really have a plan for it yet. I would imagine having a bonfire, walks out in woods or a sea shore, group ritual and maybe sharing of useful skills in an informal workshops etc. I would find difficult to chose dates or places at the moment but I want to share the idea with all of you so we have time to think it through together and choose something good for all interested. Location would be probably somewhere centrally with roughly similar distance for everyone, unless someone can offer free accommodation or know of some special place worth visiting for any reason.

Share your suggestions and ideas of what we could do and where we could go anytime you have one!

I think it would be great to do this…

  2. Well, since Lolita posted this, we’ve moved from Bristol to Inverness. Also no-one actually responded to this initial suggestion either, so nothing really got planned. I’d like at some point to have a KIA gathering in Scotland, possibly in the highlands, maybe around Loch Ness. If we can get enough of us to commit, it might be nice to hire a self-catering lodge/cottage by the Loch…

  3. Yes, Scotland would be a good idea. I don’t know the geography of other KIA members though. Might be hard for others to get there?

    For me – its two plane flights – to Luton and then directly to Inverness. Not too difficult really, just a bit tiresome ^^

  4. Well I know flights from Bristol to Inverness on Easyjet are pretty affordable, cheaper than going by train and much quicker. There are probably flights from other parts of the UK also. You mentioned Luton for example.

    And several active KIA members live in Scotland anyway. Plus I think at least one new member signed up from Glasgow recently, unless I got confused about something. I don’t know if they’d be interested mind. If we can get 6-8 of us to commit we can probably get a nice self catering cottage for the event. I don’t think we need to aim at a large number of people this time round.
