THIS NATURE RETREAT WILL ENABLE YOU TO…

– Come into relationship with your shadow or impossibly stuck places in a way that liberates them and reveals their gifts.

– Cultivate more self love, self acceptance and self awareness.

– Step into deeper confidence and own your power as a force for good in the world.

HOW WILL WE SPEND OUR TIME TOGETHER?

Everything we do is experiential learning, not information based mental models which means that we deliver information through ‘feeling it in your body’.

So our time together as a small group of people will include carefully choreographed days that includes both lightness and depth aimed at reconnecting the relationship between your head and your heart and the one between you and nature. This will include wild river dips, awe-inspired landscapes, nature connection practices, meditation and techniques of council and ceremony – ways to communicate from the heart and share stories around a roaring fire.

These re-connection practices will help you connect to yourself, and put you in good stead for the centre piece of this retreat which is the 24 Hour Solo nature experience

This  Solo experience is an invitation to step into a sacred space alone in the wilderness.

It’s an invitation to reflect on your life, to honour your journey so far, and connect with the deeper purpose and potentials of your life.

THIS RETREAT IS FOR YOU IF

– You are willing to invest energy, time and money into making your visions happen.

– You are looking for the support of experienced community as you step forward onto your most authentic path.

– You aren’t afraid of deep conversations, truth telling and embracing vulnerability as a profound strength and source of power.

– You want to do this work as an individual and be witnessed and held as apart of a community based on true connection.

– There will be lightness and depth. There will be some deep edgy work where we will invite you to move out of your comfort zones to support deeper change.

 

OUR COMMITMENT TO ONGOING COMMUNITY,  AFTER CARE AND THE “INTEGRATION PIECE”

The relationship between what surfaces on the course and how this meets everyday life back home, a process sometimes referred to as incorporation, will be carefully tended to. We are serious about the integration aspect of this work and as such this retreat includes:

– A one-to-one call (pre-retreat) with us

– 7-Days retreat workshop

– Two Group Zoom follow-up sessions within the first three months (led by us)

– A one-to-one mentoring session within three months of the programme’s end

– 3-weeks of follow up sharings with another group member

Guides

Natasha Lythgoe – I guide individuals and groups through life transitions with nature. With over fifteen years experience leading programmes that connect people back to their true nature, The Art of ReWilding weaves together the main threads of my life; creativity, dharma (truth), mythic journeys, the intelligence of the body and nature.

My passion is for workshops that support you to unearth your deepest potentials and purpose.

Adrian Kowal – Adrian is the co-founder of Way of Nature UK and is regularly mind-blown by the alchemical reaction of combining deep relaxation processes with Rites of Passage nature connection practices. He has trained and assisted in facilitating programmes with John P. Milton, and has been leading wilderness programmes for 6 years. Adrian has also been running Evolve, a centre for growth and wellbeing in London, for 10 years and has deep knowledge of both urban and nature-based wellness practices.

Combining his twenty years of storytelling experience together with his passion for exploring both his inner nature and outer nature, Marc also works with the world’s leading nature facilitators to help people become the hero in their own stories.
