About the event
Come away from your modern lifestyle and get back to basics and simplicity. Step away from the stresses and complications of modern day living and give yourself the opportunity to slow down your mind, nourish the soul and give yourself the permission to be playful. By feeling the aliveness of nature around you brings space for reflection, curiosity and creativity.
You will have a hands-on immersive experience of yoga, meditation, foraging, making fire using primitive techniques, rustic bread making and the ancient art of cleansing our bodies and minds by building an outdoor sauna.
Learn these ancestral skills and ways you can introduce these skills into your everyday modern lives.
You will have the comfort of glamping in cosy shepherd huts with each of them having their own wood burner if you need the extra warmth.
