This nurturing retreat will offer you time and space in nature on Sacred Earth's beautiful 40-acre site. The natural world has the power to truly relax and revitalise us, and also acts as a mirror for what is going on inside us. The more closely we connect with the natural world, the more clearly we can understand ourselves. 

Our lives have undergone major changes in the past couple of years. But how many of us have had time to reflect on all that has happened?  So, we will take the time to pause, come into our senses and notice all that is around us.

We will work with the power of nature and the wisdom of the Celts, who understood how nature and its cycles can provide meaning in our lives. As we enter the Celtic festival of Lammas at the time of the new moon, we will focus on the theme of 'first harvest', giving ourselves space to reflect on the 'seeds' we have planted and cultivated in our lives over the last year or so. 

We will celebrate what we have grown so far and take time to dream into what we want to nurture and grow for the future.  We will see how our interior landscape responds to and is influenced by our exterior landscape, and how tuning into the rhythms of the natural world can support us to notice and honour our own internal rhythms. 

You'll experience guided meditations, movement and body practice, sensory activities and mindful walks. There will also be time for journaling and creative activities, including storytelling around the fire.
