A testimonial written by one who joined me for an ongoing 1 ~1 ecotherapy journey
This has been a transformative journey of remembering and coming home, of many emotions and many chapters, with Beth and all life as my Guide. A journey of deepening into connection with myself and the web of life, becoming more whole, understanding that I am Nature, not separate.
Of expressing again and again my grief for the world’s pain, wading through it (but with Beth and the trees and birds to hear me, not alone) and finally unsticking, perhaps arriving to a place of radical acceptance, that we are where we are, and joy and awe in the moment - and service to others - are what matter.
Of finding (to my surprise, but not Beth’s) a spiritual yearning - an ancient and indigenously human pull towards reverence for and reciprocity with the Earth. Of shedding old relationships, and ways of thinking, and parts of me which hold me back and make me small. Of following Beth’s guidance to remember the wonder and playfulness of childhood….rolypolies in a sunny meadow and running around in the rain. Enchantment.
And through it all Beth walked beside me, with compassion and care. She called me from my head, into my mind-body, onto the land, and I took strength and healing and direction from her deep groundedness in herself and the community of life, in her unshakable belief in my wholeness and wildness which just needed to be uncovered. In her warmth, wisdom, warrior woman strength, her humour, authenticity and tenderness.
And the land where we met, and the sacred web of life, spun a hammock around me….to hold me, for me to grow in, to sleep in, to dream in. And she showed me the interplay, conversations with and wisdom to be learned from all that dwells here right beside and around us. And I have now started a training in Nature-connection pathways, in the hope that I can go forward and serve the web of life in the best way I can.
I feel such gratitude to you Beth, words can’t really hit the spot - you have such trust in and love for the land, in its abundance and in our innate wild wisdom ….even domesticated comfort-loving me ...and I begin…tentatively... to share your trust. You are a total inspiration to me. Thank you for guiding me towards myself, to be the best I can be.
Rewild is a journey words cannot describe. Beth creates such a safe space of invitation that it is almost impossible not to connect with your authentic self either inwardly or outwardly. I reached some truly unexpected edges of myself and in doing so expanded. The old edges became part of some expanding plane of growth, a horizon from which to step outwards. She held space through the challenge and celebrated the absolute joy of our discoveries. Sometimes, in life, you meet a person who is doing the work that was meant for them and Beth is one such person. If you're curious, I can only say that working with Beth has been a true and humbling privilege. Jump in. She will catch you
A testimonial written by one who joined me for a one off nature immersion 'Soothe'
I just wanted to say a great big thankyou for our beautiful session. I felt so incredibly reminded and reconnected when I left. I felt full of fresh, life giving air, rooted deeply in the earth and expanded into the wind.
I also couldn’t stop thinking about that land. How abundant it was in its winter. How majestic the birch wood was. How the Robins appeared, the deer and the buzzards. How supported we are when we take the time to look.
So thank you for welcoming me so warmly and guiding me through those few hours. I found the time really affirming...In my memory of the day you were much a part of the land - almost like an interim translator whilst I remembered how to converse with her myself. Thank you for the practices - they were really beautiful and so powerful
