The Othona Community in Bradwell-on-Sea was established in 1946 as a place to promote peace and reconciliation after the second World War. Initially it was just a summer camp for 10 weeks of the year, where people of all walks of life could come and learn about other cultures, beliefs and ways of living. We are now open all year round and run residential events led by experts drawn from many disciplines on subjects such as art, science, music and permaculture. We are an off-grid community, which generates our own energy using solar and wind power and we aim to promote a more sustainable lifestyle.

When we are not hosting our own events then we also have other groups using the Centre such as Church groups, choirs, self help groups, schools and many others. The community attracts anything between 10 and 100 people, depending on the theme and the season. At any given time there will be some who have been coming for years and others here for the first time. Especially in the summer the dining room echoes to the sound of many languages and children’s voices.

Othona has a special concern for living in harmony with nature – with wind turbine, solar panels, and eco-building and much else. The beauty of the natural world is all around – from a green woodpecker to an unpolluted starlit night sky.
Established: 1946
