Retreats

Often our Lives are  so busy and so full trying to find the time for ourselves can become too hard.

Before we know it - we are at discord with ourselves, lost direction, feeling in a rut of a mundane, un-nourishing and energy zapping existence. 

We have lost ourselves.  We are no longer aligned to our values and even when we start to notice this; it just seems to create even more discord and our inner critic has a field day!

Sometimes just stepping completely away from the normality of life, gives us the chance to just pause and breathe.

It gives us the opportunity to reflect and restore.

To reconnect to what is important and of value in our lives.

The added bonus is that these events always seem to attract like minded souls.

People who you can really connect and converse with deeply and with intention.

Day Retreat

Day Retreat - Clumber Park Nottinghamshire.

Saturday 17th April  10:00 - 15:30

Spending time in nature offers many benefits to soothe the mind, body and soul.

It has many specific studies to support it's finding of reduced stress levels, more clarity and more focus.  It also increases NK cells in the body which can support immune systems and can promote a better quality of sleep.

We were never meant to be so disconnected from nature as how we have become today.

The good news is that even a small amount of time in nature can impact positively on our health. A few hours of nature & Forest Therapy will help you to unplug from technology and slow down.

It will bring in to the present moment which in turn helps to de-stress and relax you.

When you connect to nature and take the time to use all five of your senses, you begin to draw on and feel the vast array of benefits the world of nature provides.  

The day will start with a gentle saunter to acquaint ourselves with our environment.

We will offer a number of invitations throughout the day, all designed to involve the senses and give you a deeper experience of immersion with nature and with yourself.

Walking is a gentle meandering pace and over the day we will cover 1 -2 miles.

What to bring, wear etc will be sent to you on registration.

Weekend Retreat

Two Days retreat at Savernake Ancient Forest

Saturday 11th - Sunday 12th September 

During this experience we will explore the delights of Savernake Ancient Forests on the outskirts of Marlborough.

Savernake forest contains thousands of veteran oaks, offering the opportunity to stumble upon a remarkable tree around every corner.

The history of the forest goes back for a thousand years or more. Its long history has left us with an outstanding legacy of old trees, rich landscapes and diverse habitats.

One to the countries oldest trees, the Big Bellied Oak, is very noticeable on the side of the A346, but a walk in to the lovely Savernake Forest it the best way of viewing this ancient tree.

The big belly oak is the great grandfather of the historic savernake trees and is about 1,100 years old, taking root at around the time William the Conquerer defeated King Harold in 1066.

We will immerse ourselves within this nature to absorb the many healing properties the this nature world provides.

The forest is the healer, the guide opens the door.

We will use a number of nature & forest therapy invitations and natural mindfulness practices to enrich our experience as well as exploring individual trees that we are drawn to, their teachings and how we can continue to use their elements as earth medicine in our own lives.

This event does not include accommodation or food. Instead we have left this open for your choice of venue, experience and cost.
