Sempervivum is an informal network of like-minded people who meet up to explore and celebrate being together and being alive. It’s open to anyone. The main event each year is a week at Easter. The 2017 Easter week was held at Pitcalzean House near Nigg, on the Moray Firth, and was a great success. Booking is now open for the Sempervivum Easter Event 2018, which will be from Saturday April 7th to Saturday April 14th at Pitcalzean House.
During our gatherings, a wide range of activities and workshops are on offer, generated by participants themselves and by members of the communities where our events are held. In past years we have enjoyed: singing and song writing, art events in the woods, making fire sculptures along the river, spoken word and music performance, open-air poetry, stand-up comedy and cabaret, peace dances, yoga and circle dance, equinox bonfire celebrations, labyrinths in the landscape. You may be inspired to try something new and discover the shoots of a hidden talent, or you may just want to relax in good company.
Sempervivum means “always alive”, expressing a wish to celebrate those impulses which regenerate and enliven us all. Our focus is on community building through creative collaboration and gentle self-enquiry, providing a safe, open environment in which to connect with the self and others in a real way
