River Dart Wild Church

River Dart Wild Church is a pioneer ministry, co-ordinated by Sam Wernham. It is based in the practice of contemplative pilgrimage and is open to spiritual seekers of any faith or none. Due to Covid-19 we have sadly had to postpone our April 2020 launch event and monthly pilgrimages. During this time Sam is continuing to make contemplative resources available - click here for guided meditations from her local church, churchyard, home and garden. Sam is co-ordinating a daily pattern of pausing for silence during this challenging time, based on the ancient practice of the Prayer of the Heart in the inner 'monastery of the heart' at 8am, 12 noon, 4pm and 10pm or before bed. Please join us in spirit for some contemplative calm at these times.


Our fortnightly contemplative meetings in Dartington, Wild Monastics, are also suspended in their usual form for now. Instead we are meeting online using Zoom, for times of silent meditation and shared reflection, with inspiration drawn from the classic spiritual text The Way of a Pilgrim translated by Helen Bacovcin. Please contact Sam if you would like to join us and to receive a zoom invitation link.
