Modern life can be tough.
Our minds get cluttered, our senses numbed,
our energy drained. Many of us find it hard to stop,
or to take care, or find our best path.
But there is magic in the woods…



Way of Nature experiences range from day-long workshops to week-long expeditions in unforgettable locations.  All of our programmes include a ‘solo’ immersion in Nature – a powerful exercise practiced by people throughout time. In an era defined by frantic speed, our experiences are powerful ways of helping to slow down, take stock, and reconnect with the important things in life.


We have now confirmed our mix of programmes for 2018, including Women’s and Men’s Retreats, a Modern Vision Quest, long expeditions, short weekends and specialist retreats.


At times like these, it is time to return to Nature and bring the wisdom home…


Living Our True Nature – A Course For Men

“Try not to become a man of success,
rather become a man of value.”
– Albert Einstein

A Course for Men – Living Our True Nature

A course for men hosted over 5 months –  May to September 2018

Modern civilisation and the suburban life just doesn’t suit men’s nature. It leaves men often feeling unchallenged. One of the symptoms of disconnectedness in policy-making, our workplaces and our communities stems from the lack of rites of passage that support the transition from boyhood to becoming a mature man.

Join us for a 5 month programme in cultivating stillness, reawakening a sense of aliveness, exploring purpose and enjoying the support of community.



Our journey begins with a 5 day hiking retreat in a sacred valley in Tuscany, well known historically for it’s stillness and as an area for contemplative solitude. We will make space for both outer adventure and an inner safari, that will culminate in a 24 hour ‘solo’ – time alone camping in the wilderness inspired by the Vision Quest tradition.

During this programme we will have a chance to practice with a variety of tools that allow us to explore ourselves, our edges and our dreams. The practices will include gentle movement meditations, strong physical activities that will challenge us, and ways to experience deep presence and relaxation.

Over the following four months each participant will belong to an enquiry group that will meet regularly online or physically (if distance allows), to explore themes of beliefs, love, sex, relationship and more.

As a group we will circle up four times, for two hours per session, through an online platform, to take part in a men’s group. This will be a time to check in and share our edges, challenges and things we want to celebrate with each other.

Towards the end of the course we will co-host a call with a celebrated guest speaker, elder and pioneer to the modern men’s movement, Nick Duffell, who co-founded the Centre of Gender Psychology 20 years ago. Nick will share his perspective gained over his life-time working with people like Robert Bly, to host a dialogue about our journey and perspective on modern masculinity.

We will conclude our journeying together by reviewing and sharing insights we have gained, discuss the themes of purpose in community or career, and support each other to carry these lessons out into the world. To close we will sing, tell stories around the camp-fire, dream and sleep under the stars for a final evening together.


“A sharpening of the senses and of the joy of being alive.”

– Jeremy

Please note: This journey will be physically challenging. Expect to learn new practices for living in the wild, and to carry all of the food and shelter you will need over the expedition.


The first retreat is scheduled 30th May – 3rd June. The final campout is scheduled 6th September.


The retreat will take place in a sacred valley in Tuscany, Italy. The final camp out will take place in South East England, details announced on registration.

of Nature Connectors Campouts

Two events for nature connectors…
– a community of guides, facilitators and change-makers
working with care, connection, wisdom and love of nature.

The Nature Connectors Camp Out
+ Big ‘Solo’ Gathering

Two gatherings for nature connectors – in April and October 2018


Over the course of 2018 we are hosting two special gatherings to help connect and support nature connectors. The first, to be held in April in the Lake district, is a big camp out in one of our favourite locations. It will be a chance to regather, replenish, dive deeper into connection practices, ask more questions, share more skills, go back to the wild, talk and sing around fires, and help each other grow nature connection in the world.

The second gathering, in wild Scotland, will be a chance to grow the conversation from April, this time also going on a wild solo and ceremony as a larger community.

These gatherings are aimed for people that have already experienced or worked with us or have very similar interests. The events are by invitation, but we would of course love to connect with more like-minded souls, so do please get in touch if they might be of interest.

April Nature Connectors Camp Out

In April we will gather in the Lake District, at our base in a protected forest, nestled between the waters of Coniston and the vast, open skies of the fells. The plan is to meet on the afternoon of Wednesday 11th April, and to take 5 days and 4 nights to to work and learn and revel in the wild together – all time to deepen our questions and practices with nature connection.

Sessions will include:

– Mini workshops

– Open SpaceCamping & fires & wild meals

– A short ‘solo’

– Games, body practices and wild swimming

– Group circles, peer-mentoring and ceremonies

– Special themes (TBC e.g. Shadow, Relationships etc.)

– Music and singing and rumpus

Scotland – Big Solo Gathering

In October, we will reconvene in Scotland, at an extraordinary location far from civilization – Alladale Wilderness Lodge. Here we will take added time to deepen and grow our conversation, and to prepare for a group ‘solo’ as a community – returning to share stories of wisdom from the wild.

Why are we doing this?

These events are about connecting and celebrating the work we are all doing to reconnect people and nature. They are intended as moments for each of us to rest and replenish while taking time to work on our crafts. Each event will bring together a community of people who have worked with us across Way of Nature UK and Bio-Leadership processes. Coming together in a new way, we hope to make more time to share each other’s stories, dreams and challenges, as practitioners, in more collaborative ways. We believe that by continuously gathering, with nature, to listen, learn, dream and be, we can grow more good things in the world.

Nature and Connection  

During this work, we would love to open up to different forms of work and learning while also respecting the traditions and ideas that have informed the Way of Nature over time. For us, this means working with an idea that nature connection is about refining our own inner nature as much as it is about working with nature ‘out there’ in the world. In this way, this work and community might always work across themes related to our own growth as people, in order to help shape a more whole world.


We propose a sliding scale which we leave as optional to participants:

Lake District Gathering Only 11th – 15th April

Option 1: £225

Option 2: £275

Let the mind rest at peace…
…Returning to the source is stillness,
which is the way of nature.

Way of Nature UK Summer Programme

Empty yourself of everything.
Let the mind rest at peace.

Women’s Programme
A special opportunity
to rest, reconnect, and revel
in the power of the wild woman.

Women’s Programme

Dart Valley, Devon, UK – 8th to 12th June 2018

“Another world is not only possible, she is on her way. On a quiet day, I can hear her breathing.” – Arundhati Roy

In 2018 we are delighted to host our second Way of Nature Women’s programme: a very special experience to support rest, reconnection, and opening up to the power of the wild feminine.

The journey, guided by two highly experienced and deeply caring guides, will take place in the unspoilt beauty of the Dart Valley. There, over five days, the group will explore capacities for reconnection, relaxation, presence and the cultivation of universal energy. At the heart of the process there will be a 24 hour ‘solo’ – a period of time all alone in Nature. This is a rich and often unforgettable exercise practiced by people throughout time. Around the ‘solo’ there will be space to share stories and wisdom around the fire, and to help each other take magic from the experience back home.

This programme will be set around a camp next to the river Dart in the exquisite Dart valley. The journey will weave in and out of Dartmoor, ancient woodland, enchanted moss-covered boulders, lichen-encrusted tree trunks and pools of crystal clear water to swim and delight in. All the while the journey will be supported by the flow of the river as she twists, turns, rushes and drops into serene stillness.


– Arrival and Welcome
– Awareness training (rooted in relaxation, presence and energy practices)
– 24 hours solitude time in wild nature
– Reintegration training

The programme will include conversations, night journeys, poetry, meditations, nature connection activities and a constant flow of exploration through the woods and the deserted moorland.  The group will cook together and sleep under the stars.

Forest Family Camp
An enriching weekend of forest school,
delicious meals prepared by in-house chefs,
wild swimming, yoga and campfires.

Forest Family Camp: A magical long weekend of camping under the stars and celebrating nature together

The Quadrangle Trust, Kent – 27th to 29th July 2018

With increasingly urban lives and less time to spend in nature, we’re creating a space for you and your children to feel the grass between your toes, to revitalise, replenish and rediscover your wild side.

Join us for an enriching weekend of nature connection, delicious vegetarian food, wild swimming, storytelling and music, dance, yoga and campfires hosted and curated by The Quadrangle Trust and Way of Nature.

Together we’ll build a community made up of 25 families that offers a safe space to re-wild ourselves and our children. Workshops will be aimed at children aged 4 – 8, but open to all.

Join the tribe, the camp is just the start….

We bring together forest school leaders, amazing healthy caterers, musicians and holistic well-being therapists to create a shared space where you and your family can be guided to explore connecting with nature and the art of mindful living.

The Quadrangle is a great space for this gathering with a wild-swimming river, a huge brick barn to use for dining, play and workshops, an orchard and permaculture forest garden. A yurt sits by the river and a 1970 Airstream caravan under the trees overlooking the pond is a rainy-day playroom and kid’s library.

The programme will include bushcraft sessions, storytelling, dancing, music, face-painting, fire building, practical workshops for parents around inspiring activities in nature for the whole family, adult and children’s yoga and lots of time for ‘free play’, which might include snoozing in the meadow, wild swimming or woodland walks.

Packing list and pick up times from Shoreham station to come in the Welcome Pack once you have registered.

Who’s it for?
Parents interested in:
– Forest schooling
– Allowing their children to be ‘free-range’ in a safe environment
– Low-impact living

Not for parents wanting to:
– Drop their kids off and party

The aim of the camp isn’t to just have a fun weekend but to provide parents and children with the inspiration, games and tools to support a lot more time spent outdoors as a family.

We see our children spending more time outdoors as crucial to their education and incredibly supportive of a more whole upbringing.

Why is this important? Read more here about the benefits of being in nature and having freedom to play.

In order to keep the modern distractions of technology at bay we will all enjoy a digital detox and request all participants to leave laptops and iPads at home and have their phones switched off or on silent for the duration of the camp.

A Low-Impact Week-end
We’ll be aiming for the weekend to have as low a carbon footprint as possible and our environmental policy includes:
– Vegetarian food
– Food that is locally sourced or home-grown
– Recycling and re-using wherever possible
– Saving water (encouraging people to swim in the river rather than have a bath/shower)
– Organising lift shares and doing pick-ups from the station to discourage driving

The Forest Garden: In 2010 the trustees at the Quadrangle began looking at how the pasture field could be used in a different way, produce food and help to educate people in ecology and low-impact living. The concept of a forest garden using the design principles of permaculture began taking shape. There is now over hundred young trees – apples, pears, plums and autumn olives, and fruit bushes – gooseberries, raspberries, red, black and white currants. Paths take you through the long grasses and around the trees to the camping circles. The river Darent runs gently beside the garden, with steps down to it for swimming and boating.

We will use the Main Barn as our dining space and backup workshop space if we have wet weather.

A Mongolian yurt and a vintage Airstream are on site for play and workshop spaces/dens.

There are 6 toilets and three showers on-site including 2 compost toilets in the Forest Garden camping field.


Arrive between 2 – 3.30pm on Friday
The camp ends between 4-5pm on Sunday

Jessie Teggin Creative Director of The Quadrangle Trust.


– Bring your own tent: £150 per adult/£80 per child (for adults this breaks down as £80 for the weekend ticket that includes all the workshops, talks and events and £70 for all the amazing meals)
– If you’d like a bit more luxury then please register your interest in a family bell tent by emailing
– We have a few bursary places available – please get in touch if you would like to find out more.

The Muse Project
An adventure into the
power of wild creativity,
in collaboration with author,
Paul Kingsnorth and
special guests.

The Muse Project

A programme to inspire wild creative power, June to October 2018

“Dreams come true. Without that possibility, nature would not incite us to have them.”

– John Updike

We are very glad to announce The Muse Project  – a programme for anyone whose creative work in any field would be reawakened or enlivened by contact with the living Earth and its stories. Over the course of two week-long gatherings in wild places, along with online ‘virtual firepits’ and a supported personal project, we will explore an ancient question that, today, is more relevant and urgent than ever: is the Earth speaking to us? And, if so, what is she asking us to do?

What to Expect

The Muse Project is the third programme in our continued collaboration with author and storyteller, Paul Kingsnorth. For 2018, our intention is to work with nature to find the powerful creativity that comes from tapping into both our inner and outer wildness. Across the programme we will weave conversations, guided teaching sessions, time spent outside and two 24-hour solo expeditions into extraordinary places. On the journey with you will be writers, artists, musicians and wilderness guides, who will support each participant as they develop a meaningful creative project. 

If you like the sound of The Muse Project, please email us to find out more. We will be sharing updates in coming weeks and opening applications from mid-December.

Peace, Power, Love and Wildness
‘Power without love is
reckless and abusive,
and love without power is
sentimental and anemic…’
– Martin Luther King Jr.

Peace, Power, Love & Wildness

A journey about living 21st Century lives – May to October 2018

Peace, Power, Love & Wildness is a 6 month programme to help us to be the best version of ourselves for the 21st century. It is about finding new ways to navigate a world that is increasingly complex, uncertain and polarised. The journey will combine retreats to extraordinary places, guided practice in between retreats, one-to-one coaching and online seminars with special guests, as well a project to develop in your own life. The result will be connection, integrity, resilience and the confidence to live and work in more purposeful ways. It will be hosted by two dedicated wilderness and transformation guides, Andres Roberts and Natasha Lythgoe, together with special guests, assistance by Leona Johnson, and always nature.


The Journey

How do we move towards the things we want?

How do we change things, and how do we navigate change ourselves?

How do we always stay true to ourselves?

What are the best ways of being in relationship?

How do we fit with the rest of society and life?

How shall we live?

Peace, power, love and wildness are central forces in the world, but they have fallen out of relationship with each other. Power has become oppressive, love is too often tokenistic. And while we have become domesticated from the wild, real peace – inner and outer – remains a dream. What would our lives look like if we found a better balance across these things? What might we bring of these qualities to the world?


The Plan

Spring 2018: A Retreat About Space and Letting Go  

In May we will set off for a week retreat to one of the most beautiful and expansive places in the UK. From a world engrossed with speed, constantly ‘on show’ and always busy, we’ll return to the lost arts of making space, letting go, listening deeply and finding balance.

We will spend the days working with the magnetic tensions of Power and love, peace and wildness. Each of these contains and relies on the other, whilst also having the capacity to suffocate the other, so we’ll work towards finding the right balance of them in ourselves, in order to live lives where these forces flow in more generative ways.

To support us, we will be guided by nature-based meditations, Qi Gong, bodywork, elemental mapping and mindfulness tools, wild excursions and fireside talks, building towards a time-honoured ‘solo’ in the wild.

At the heart of this retreat, the nature ‘solo’ will be a deep, personal excursion to the wild. This is a practice that many people have done before us, and a powerful way of tuning in to the wisdom and the different forces in all aspects of life.

During the week, we will also begin an enquiry – something to last the whole programme – about how to truly and deeply bring new ways of being to ourselves as well as the outer world.

We leave Scotland with a deepened sense of purpose, inquiry and wonder.


Summer 2018: Personal Practice and Project

Nothing in life changes like a switch, and a personal practice throughout the summer will be shaped by the questions that have been crafted in the first retreat and taken back into everyday life. 

Your process will be supported by continued practice – tools and techniques that we will recommend to help thread this into everyday life. Additionally we will host seminars with special guests, offer 1 on 1 mentoring and encourage you to work in small groups for added support. Special guests will offer insights and perspectives on some of the big themes in life today: knowledge, shadow, relationship, and death and truth.

We will also deepen our inquiries by working with ideas drawn from Action Research tools that see life itself as a playground for learning.


Early Autumn 2018: Tempering the Sword Retreat

Our final gathering will take place in Asturias in northern Spain, one of the wildest and most spectacular regions in Europe.

After 4 months of daily and weekly practice, we will spend the time to revisit learning and themes of the programme, to listen and explore how we are experiencing transitions in life, and to ‘temper the sword’ – hone our own inquiries and experiments into peace, power, love and wildness.

By this point we will have made new choices, or started new experiments, or created new conditions within ourselves and life around us. Here we will explore why and how new things are happening, and work to sustain new patterns and new habits.  

At this second retreat we will once again return to the wild – to be alone for a second ‘solo’, once again to draw stillness and insight from nature.

We will be a real tribe by this point, so during this week we will live and practice as a community, helping each other’s questions. In this way we hope new rhythms of Peace, Power, Love and Wildness feel richer and more alive in all our lives.


Early winter 2018: Closing Circle

Towards the end of the year, a group call will be a chance to connect again, share stories from back “real life,” stoke the fire and keep the programme alive.


Spring 2019: Optional Returning Retreat

We believe this programme is valuable and very much needed in our times, so early in 2019, there is the possibility of a 3rd retreat to reconvene and continue working together, with new themes to build on through 2019.


Why the Wild

Carl Jung once said, ‘I’d rather be whole than good.’ We agree. However to be fully whole we must integrate all that drives us unconsciously, disperses our energies and limits our self-views. And we must reclaim all that we have abandoned and turned our backs on.

We cannot think of a better guide for navigating this terrain than nature herself. In the mysterious and measureless depths of the wilderness, we have the opportunity to open to something we call “The Big Listen”: listening to what has purchase on our hearts and the stories that live underneath the work we do in the world.

Sometimes when we talk about nature as being something ‘out there’, we forget that we, too, are forces of nature, and it’s as important to be playful as it is to give voice to the parts of ourselves that long for depth and meaning.



Space and Letting Go Retreat: May 15th to 20th, 2018.

Tempering the Sword Retreat: September 18th to 23rd, 2018.



The programme will take place in Scotland and northern Spain. Full details on application.

Modern Vision Quest
Our deepest, wildest programme of 2018.
An expedition into deep nature
in the Romanian Carpathian mountains.

Modern Vision Quest

Carpathian Mountains, Romania, 1st to 9th September 2018

The deepest, wildest programme we are hosting in 2018. This programme honours powerful ancient practices of going into nature alone, to reconnect, to draw deep insight and wisdom, and to bring a special kind of peace and purpose back to everyday life. This year, Modern Vision Quest will take place in  the Carpathian mountains of Romania, where each participant will spend four days alone as part of their quest. The programme involves three days of work preparing for the process, two days after the quest to integrate the experience, and two calls in the months after the journey – helping to keep the essence alive back at home.


Making base high in the Carpathian Mountains, here we strip back from everyday life. To begin, we camp together for three days, in the most extraordinary setting, to prepare for our quests. These days involve working with nature-based practices – tools and techniques from ancient traditions – to support stillness, connection, openness and flow. Over these first days we also share stories to support each quest. We do so in the way that our ancestors did before us – around fires, making time to listen deeply, always with the help of nature. This whole process is entirely off-grid. We camp together in the wild, away from speed, distractions – even electricity and running water.

We then move into the Vision Quest. This involves setting off alone to a place in the mountains, marking a circle and stepping into it for four days and three nights. It is hard to describe the insights and feelings that might come from the process; a chance to be alone with your own true self and wild nature all around you. Slowly, you might find yourself more at ease; more aware; more connected with a deeper truth of things. It is something very special to keep with you through life.

After the quest, we return to our shared camp, to share stories and insights from the experience, and to explore how to take any lessons back to life and work. We also arrange two calls in the months after the programme, to help keep the experience alive.

We think that this kind of immersion is one of the greatest gifts a person can give themselves. It is a process we host with much care and respect, while doing so with lightness and joy. Here, we also do it in a way more designed for modern times. We don’t believe the world needs more ‘striving’ or ‘pushing’. The emphasis here is on stillness, peace and relaxation – letting nature cast her magic in her own way.


This programme takes place in the Carpathian mountains of Romania. We will arrange transfers from Bucharest. More information provided on registration.


£1250 including all guiding, meals and local transfers from Bucharest. An Early Bird price of £999 is available for bookings before 31st March 2018.

Two bursaries spots are available at £695. To apply, please contact us with a description of why you would like to come and be part of the journey.
