About this event

The Art of Living Well

Elegant Simplicity provides a philosophy of life that weaves together simplicity of material life, thought and spirit. It distils Satish Kumar’s five decades of wisdom into a guide for pursuing a life that prioritises the ecological integrity of Earth, social equity and personal happiness.

Satish Kumar is a long-time peace and environmental activist, former monk, nuclear disarmament advocate and pacifist. He is the longest serving UK magazine editor, now Editor Emeritus of Resurgence & Ecologist magazine. Living in Devon, Satish Kumar is founder of Schumacher College and The Small School both located in Devon. One of his most notable accomplishments is a peace walk with a companion to the capitals of four of the nuclear-armed countries – Washington, London, Paris and Moscow, a trip of over 8,000 miles. He has authored several books and has presented the documentary Earth Pilgrim.

Satish will speaking at this event and will host a book signing.

About us

Dartington is an old place with a new story.

The Dartington Experiment began in 1925 and was based on the idea that humans are many-sided – and how we need environments that encourage our whole being to flourish, in connection with nature and each other.

This idea is as true today is it ever was.
