Holy Work

When we cannot be the person we know we are, we die.

Refugi & Company are with you at the start, the middle and the end. We build sacred spaces for your important work; we help you gather the sacred tools and materials for your practice; we show you paths you can walk by walking with you; we bring your people to the campfire. We orientate you in your task, bring definition to your place, so that you may live and exist in your own wisdom and truth. Together, we make work holy.

Refugi & Company are themselves a refuge, from discouragement, from abandonment. Let us wrap you in the blanket of human warmth, to watch the skies in the comfort of company. Let us share with you our ways and our ears, our contemplative practice and our curiosity. Together, we draw back the veil of mystery that binds you, unpick the not-you that kills you and with boundless love and wisdom and agency, together, we will illuminate the Universe.

The Mountain

Refugi is the home of our company; a thousand year plan; a sacred space slowly rising from the soil and stone of the French Pyrenees. It is an abbey, a fortress, a place of learning, of art and contemplation. In its walls and recesses we place the sacred objects and holy words that are revealed to us. And by the mighty table, its frame covered in our own woven cloth, in infinite joy and wonder at the marvels of everything, we feast into the last days as though they are the first.

Glacial in its momentum, Refugi is the stone that outlasts us. In it carved, we set about to evidence our intent for our distant descendants and those who will never know us. To them we say that life was worth living and in it, despite the loss of our times, despite the cult of mania and death in which we were unwittingly born, solace, meaning, love, beauty, laughter nonetheless flourished within these walls, echoing through time with all the lightness and fluid-abandon of spring melt-water.

We invite you, in the emergence of your own sacred practice, to join us. At Refugi there is much work to be done and much space to do it in. There, the work is to rest your head, to till the soil, to join timbers, to write, to breathe, to be alive. There, you have permission to die and permission to live again in your true self; to pay attention to this remarkable life and celebrate it in the company of others and at the quiet pond of reflection.

Portals

Refugi and Company have a long history of creating spaces in which we can make our important work. Sometimes, and often seemingly against the odds, we find ways to keep them so that they may be used by others. These are the Portals; our curated collection of sacred buildings, art-works in and of themselves, connected, dynamic, gentle, accessible, open-hearted and available for you and your practice.
