JAY Ramsay, the psychotherapist and poet (see the Classified Ads) is moving to Staverton with a new vision. Together with his partner Angela Warren, they are offering the Bothy at Sweet William cottage, near St. Paul de Leon church, as a retreat space next to the Dartington Estate. Available for anyone needing peace in nature and to be creative in this unique location with river and woodland walks on the doorstep. This can be a day, or several days, up to a week or longer by arrangement: please contact Angela via www. sweetwilliambothy.co.uk They will both be offering their therapeutic work there as well as workshops with various teachers in a large garden that borders on the woods and the river below. Jay said: ”I’ve always been interested in the idea of a sanctuary where people can come for rest as well as inspiration and renewal, but it always seemed too big and out of reach until I realized that with the right kind of place you can do it from home. This is what we’re doing with The Bothy at Sweet William and I see it as one flame among many that are lighting up now because, with the world as it is, our need for such places is very real. It’s also about how we can be effective in the world as a result of having these needs met. We’re all too frazzled otherwise, we hardly have the time for each other let alone ourselves, and this is way out of balance.” Jay, originally from London, cofounded the Angels of Fire radical poetry collective there in 1983 and has organized events over many years, most recently Writing on the Wall on the Southbank back in June. He is also a teacher at Schumacher College offering short and year long courses. A very experienced and highly-regarded therapist, he says he is looking forward to being more involved in the community. See www.jayramsay.co.uk for his contact details.
