Zenith Summer Camp 2022
The Call of the Earth

Pine-trees, what do your branches signify?
– Hands stretched out from heaven to bless the earth.
Pine-trees, for what are you made?
– We are temples erected for the worshippers of God in nature.
Pine-trees, tell me your life’s secret.
– We are the shadows of souls on the cross, awaiting patiently the hour of their liberation

– Hazrat Inayat Khan, Tanas ‘The Soul speaking with Nature’

The Call of the Earth. The Camp’s theme for 2022 invites us into deeper partnership with the Earth and all her beings. Our four week programme will explore everything from the angels’ calls, to the continuum of our own bodies, to the language of the other-than-human world, and we invite you to consider our theme from your own perspective.
