We live in a culture of blame and shame, and this can cause us to lose ourselves in the quest to fulfil all of the expectations placed upon us.
We find ourselves wrung out, exhausted, unfulfilled and wondering what on earth went wrong. We have been taught to suppress ourselves, to play nice and to be good. To be the perfect wife, mother, employee, daughter. To be the perfect weight, have the perfect hair.
In the search for 'perfection' we have lost who we truly are. We have forgotten the fire that burns inside of us, the beauty that is every part of us. We have abandoned our wild, untamed selves in order to fit into a box not designed to hold the immense power that we create when we step into our light.
Join us on this one day retreat, deep in Suffolk woodland, where you will be guided through a journey of reconnecting back to your wild self through deep nature connection.
Through sound, movement, dance, art and discussion in circle with other women we will rekindle the embers of the divine feminine fire that burns within each and everyone one of us.
Plant based refreshments will be provided. Please bring your own lunch.
10.30am - 4pm

Sinfield Nature Conservation Trust, Suffolk (2 miles from Woodbridge)
Have the last couple of years left you feeling wrung out and exhausted?
Perhaps you are feeling stressed, and finding it hard to relax?
Maybe you know it feels good to be outdoors, but would like to explore further how being with nature can help your emotional wellbeing?
Join me for a morning gathered around the fire to explore connecting with nature for our health and wellbeing.
Gently immersing into the land, you will be guided through mindful practices designed to deepen your connection to nature which will support in reducing stress, settling the nervous system and increase a positive sense of wellbeing.
Refreshments will be provided.
Connecting with nature for our health, aids our mental, physical and social wellbeing and there is growing scientific evidence to show the positive impact on health, such as reducing blood pressure, heart rate, depression and anxiety, as well as boosting the immune system, improving cognitive function, focus and creativity.
No experience necessary, this session will be suitable for those with existing mindfulness practices and those who are exploring this for the first time.
This session is for those age 16 and over.
The next Wild Wellbeing date late summer 2022 TBC
Gathering together on a private, sandy beach, set against a forest backdrop on the shores of the magical River Deben, we will come into circle around the fire with foraged herbal tea and nibbles.
You will be guided through a gentle grounding to help you come into the body and immerse in the energy of the landscape around us, followed by a cleansing ritual using locally foraged herbs.
Working with the energy of new moon and the sea, deepening into our connection to the elements or fire and water, I will guide you through a meditation and intention setting ceremony to support you in tuning into your souls desires and creating space for them to emerge.
We will finish the evening with time for connection and sharing around the fire, and a final guided gratitude practice.

An exploration into the wild self
On this day retreat deep in sacred woodland we dive into mystery and let the body guide our path to new and ancient knowing.
Through gentle movement, mindfulness and creative processes we will delve deep into our natural self and listen to the inner dialogues and landscapes of our physical body.
Connecting with the earth through her land, her waters, the sky and all life, we will explore our deep relationship to nature by exploring sensation, trusting imagination and allowing emotion, impulses and motion to arise.
The next Earth Body retreat day will be held as we approach Summer Solstice on:
Saturday 18th June
10.30am - 4pm
A rustic vegan lunch will be provided as well as refreshments throughout the day

An immersive exploration for women of wild landscape and wild self as we experience Orford Ness in the dark
As women we often feel like the dark is a scary place, both outside at night and in a metaphorical sense in terms of our own moods and emotions.
This event will offer an opportunity for women to gather, at August Full Moon, on the beautiful, untamed surroundings of Orford Ness. Through mindful, exploratory practices you will be guided on a journey from sunset to sunrise as we deepen our relationship with the darkness.
Arriving at Orford Quay at 5pm we will take the boat over to the Ness and settle in to our accommodation and learn about the history of the landscape over supper.
After supper we will head out to the land and begin our immersion with a grounding to come into our senses and watch the sun set over the horizon. As darkness falls we begin our walk together where you will be invited into mindful practices to support your exploration of both outer nature, and your inner nature. This will involve time alone in the dark, around ninety minutes of walking and a safe, held space for sharing our experiences with each other.
We will rise before dawn and head out to watch the sun rise over the land and retrace our steps from the night before. Exploring inner and outer nature through a renewed connection to our sense of sight and opening up to further exploration of our experience. We will finish with a final gratitude practice.
The experience will end with our boat ride back to the quay at 9.30am.
Accommodation is provided in shared rooms. A fully equipped kitchen is available for use aswell as a comfortable communal lounge.
Bookings are via the National Trust website.
