“You can see that trees
know how it is
to be bound
into the earth
and how it is to rise defiantly
into the sky.” 

 – excerpt from Hope by Dinah Hawken

I am going back to the beautiful energy of the eco-retreat in the Cotswolds.  There are 4 yurts (maximum of 3 to a yurt) round a fire on the edge of the woods surrounded by fields and more woods.  I was last there with a group in 2016 and it was a magical experience to be held the the womb like clearing of the woods while we delved into our work.

I am excited to go back to the woods again on this amazing 3 nights women’s only retreat. The yurts sit in clearing in the woods overlooking fields and more woods and it is only an hour and half from London Paddington.  The woods offers us the opportunity to disconnect from the busy modern world and to connect with our souls in a deeper way through sound, nature and community. To create our own sacred space in the wood to Connect and Be as Wild Wise Women together.

We will be using drums to journey using the shamanic tradition, to dance and move, we will use the gong to receive healing and to journey in a different way and our voices to connect to our souls and our unique connection with the universe.  You will have plenty of time to spend on your own too to walk, to wander, to wonder, to sleep; following your own needs.

Connect and Be offers the opportunity to:

  • Spend time away from ordinary life to be still and re-connect with your soul
  • Create a sacred clearing of our own to be with our knowings as group and individuals
  • To receive group sound healings
  • Use sound to journey to explore our connection to Soul and Source
  • Spend time on your own to follow your own needs

This is a communal experience and you will be sharing your yurt with a maximum of two others and we will be living cooperatively e.g. food preparing together, maintaining the fire etc. You will need to bring your own bedding, mattresses are provided although a blow up bed is great if you have one. Vegetarian meals will be provided. Please note this is a basic retreat with sawdust loos and a bucket shower but this is key to the experience as we go back to the simpler ways and our mental bodies let go their hold.
