Forest Day Retreat

Song: The Lovely Day by Donovan

Here is roughly what will happen:

- Forest Bathing! 

(A Japanese Practice of Immersive Mindful Forest Walk....No water involved! :D)

- A Cacao ceremony & Shamanic Drum Circle in the heart of the forest with ancient Epping forest trees as our witness!

......including a ritual of releasing the old, inviting the new using the Silva Method.

- Immersive Group voicework, Toning & Singing

- Yoga nidra

- Intuitive movement and trance dance practice (Frank Natale)

- Yummy Food Sharing

- Oracle cards

and more magic....!


**We’ll have drums, shakers and rattles for playing and journeying; we are going to weave our voices, move our bodies, open up our breath and receive the forest!

To align with Mother Nature, our Wild Nature and True Essence. 


**Expect laughters, hearty connections, juiciness, tears, joy, vulnerability and the magic of the unknown that will unfold. 


**This half a day retreat is intimate and deep. I intend to create a safe and deeply nourishing cocoon for us to journey deep. Especially during the shamanic and rebirthing breathwork journey you will receive devoted and loving attention. 

✨Above all the intention is to gather, feel nourished and revived, move, sing, love and laugh together!!

Some of what I'll share is my learning from a one year long immersive training in eco therapy (Wild Therapy) and the rest from years of devoted yogic practice and shamanic learning.

See my training background.

The space limited to 7 participants. So please book early :)
