Welcome to Vine Cottage, Hartfield, Sussex where we offer a quiet space in which to share satsang…. and drumming.  Simon and Kate have been committed for many years to the practice of  ‘enquiry’ as suggested by Ramana  and take great pleasure now in sharing this exploration with other seekers.  Meetings are often small but ‘when two or three are gathered together,’ – magic happens.

If you are reading this page, no doubt you may be on a familiar path and one on which you too will have had many adventures.  All are warmly invited to gatherings which are free and friendly.  Like so many, we have over the years been exploring the work of teachers such as J. Krishnamurti , Rupert Spira, Adyashanti, Eckhart Tolle, Mooji, Pamela Wilson, Tony Parsons, Alon Geva – among others. It is a great joy to offer a space in which to host teachings from these wise individuals and to meet like minded seekers of truth and wisdom.

Simon is retired from his psychotherapy practice and, always an avid reader, has a wonderful collection of books on the theme of Advaita, Buddhism, Zen – see Library. Latterly in addition to reading he enjoys relaxing with drumming and now hosts a monthly Drumming Circle to which all are welcome.

Kate was originally a TM teacher and remains particularly interested in meditation and now hosts weekly group meditation for all who enjoy sharing a silent sitting.  Her other passion is gardening and her dog Bonny (who attends all meetings apart from drumming which she dislikes!).
