Women’s Wild Hearth

When: Dated tbc June 2018

Stop the clocks, put down your load, turn off the phone and come with us into the woods, giving yourself the gift of nature and nurture. Held in the arms of old Mother Dartmoor we will create our village, make fire, tend our hearth, cook delicious meals, and forage for wild foods. 

Learn how to deepen your connection to nature and your feeling of belonging to the land. 

Share crafting and laughing, story, song and sisterhood. Ancient skills, working with fire, foraging, wild medicines. Yoga, meditation and deep relaxation. Time under the stars, and the ancient practice of the sweat lodge or the moon lodge. 

Who is it for? For women who would like to get closer to the wild side of nature, develop their intuition and learn some skills for practical and personal resilience. Max 20 participants.
