An intimate Headless Way gathering for 22 people. We will be exploring our wonderful, ever-available true Nature––Who we really, really are––through the creative avenues of the Headless Way awareness exercises or ‘experiments’. There will be lots of wonderful things to discover together.

Seeing and being Who we really are is an experience that is easy to share. And spending a few days with others who are also enjoying this Vision is inspiring, infectious, fun, deepening. This retreat is an opportunity to relax into being ‘space’ or ‘capacity’ for everything and everyone.

Richard will also be introducing a range of insights about ourselves and our world from The Hierarchy of Heaven and Earth, an incredible book by Douglas Harding, the person who developed the Headless Way.

We will also eat good food, walk in the stunningly beautiful landscape of Dartmoor, hang out together, meditate, dance, contemplate existence, look at stars, blades of grass, laugh, eat more food, and enjoy being alive.

You are warmly invited to join us..

Online workshop with Richard Lang

Richard Lang discovered the Headless Way in 1970. He has devoted his life to seeing Who he really is and to sharing this Vision. Richard has led hundreds of workshops and is part of a world-wide community of people who value the Headless Way. As well as simply enjoying and celebrating Who we all really are, Richard is doing what he can to help turn the tide so that being aware of Who we really are becomes the norm in society rather than the exception. You can find out more about the Headless Way at headless.org

You can hear Richard talk with Sam Harris about his journey here



Amir Giles


"Amir had a beautiful facilitation style that created a really safe space and edged us all closer and closer to the edges of our existence to help us explore our connection and understanding of them more."

Amir runs several popular events exploring the nature of reality, perception and consciousness, drawing on the non-dual to the non-sequitur. He regularly facilitates meditation sessions, and is an avid practitioner of enquiry techniques inspired by non-dual and wisdom traditions from around the globe, as well as scientific studies that give validity to these experiences. He was a facilitator on The Finders Course, trained as a practitioner of Internal Family Systems Therapy, and in Vortex Healing. He has a background as a performer, movement coach and facilitator in work spanning cinema, TV, stage and festival.



★★★★★ I’ve never been on any meditation course (of any type) that involved so many smiles and so much fun - but that was also helpful and fascinating and profound.” - Talulah M.

★★★★★ "This is like studying Non-Dual meditation but without the pain in the butt of long sitting meditation as many of the experiments are active and interactive. Well worth attending…"

★★★★★ "As a vipasana "student" i found this workshop very useful and enjoyable. Will be recommending to all my headed friends :-)" - Mark J.

★★★★★ “I loved it - so simple and transformative, really an incredible gift of instantly changed perception offered through a quick and fun and funny workshop! Thank you Richard and Amir!” - Megan O'Hanlon

★★★★★ The glimpses of what I experienced were revelatory. I felt very supported in the fellowship and in the experience and compassion showed by Amir. The Psychedelic society is much needed. Thank you” - Erika

★★★★★ Amir created such a friendly, open atmosphere and guided us to explore lots of fascinating states of mind. He also has a good balance between facilitating but not being too dominant; it felt like a shared journey. Lovely bunch of people and it was also nice seeing the same people every week. Can't wait for further courses like this.” - Alice

★★★★★ It was my first course with The Psychedelic Society and it didn't disappoint. It certainly opened doors to me and I really enjoyed many of the exercises and subjects. The group discussion and Amir's knowledge and leadership of the course was first class. The emails and content sent for each week were great and really insightful, also the social media communication and sharing and the Thursday night follow ups were excellent and appreciated. It's definitely something I would consider repeating in the future, because with all these courses they are easy to forget and require on-going attention.” - Robert

★★★★★ Hugely enjoyed this course. It was the second PS course I'd attended, and the first one that was fully virtual, and I was impressed by how well organised the Zoom sessions were compared with many I've attended in more 'professional' settings (credit is due to Amir for being the only host of such an event who was able to actually use breakout rooms successfully!). The course topics and exercises were fascinating, the delivery was good natured and engaging, and it covered a huge amount of ground in a short space of time.” - Abi

★★★★★ Great, deep stuff. Amir was a great facilitator and the space was peaceful and inclusive. I'll definitely come back” - Rupert

★★★★★ Another stimulating and really well constructed course - thank you Amir! I am so grateful to have come to these practices this way, and to have had the chance to begin learning them amongst and from such lovely and supportive people” - Melanie

★★★★★ This was a beautiful, beautiful event. It was peaceful and liberating, although surely some people might have felt other emotions. I appreciated a lot the fact that aside from nice words and a space, we were actually taught techniques and discussed them. Amir is a wonderful presence. Recommended!” - Giuseppe
