Dear past and present, old & new members of the Salisbury Centre community. The Salisbury Centre is celebrating its 50th Anniversary on the 1st January 2023 and we are making arrangements to celebrate this special occasion to both honour the past, regather as many old friends as possible whose life connected through the Centre, as well as to sow the seeds for the next 50th years!
For this occasion, we are in the process of planning:
Submit your Contributions
Rather than organising everything ourselves we are offering support to people from within our past and present community to create the content for both these happenings!
Hence, this is a call to action directed at all people who have, sooner or later, been involved in the life of the Centre to make some contribution toward this vision!
Types of contributions we welcome include:
Some offerings which are already in the pipeline include: An ongoing dreamwork group (Jan-Apr); Community Performances; A garden party & reunion feast; A premiere screening of a new Salisbury Centre movie; A workshop exploring the early work and vision of Winifred and how that led to the creation of new satellite organizations; A fire ceremony & ritual to sow the prayers for the next 50th years; An historic tour of the garden; Yoga classes; Meditations; Art & Play therapy workshops for families and children; & much more.
We can support you by:

Looking forward to hearing from you!
Another idea in the making for celebrating our Centre are a variety of “discussion panels“. These will aim to provide opportunities for sharing stories, hearing about peculiar happenings in the centre’s history as well as creating safe spaces for reflecting upon themes and values which have kept the Salisbury Centre soul shining for five decades. These events will be open to anyone interested. Currently some panels’ themes might include:
If you’d be open and/or interested in taking part in a discussion panel, either at some point during the months leading to the celebration week in June, or even during the celebration week itself (18th-25th June 2023), please email Events@salisburyCentre.org
Note: if reading this you might be interested in exploring other themes and activities not mentioned above, please get in touch to explore how this might be possible.
