About the Event

We are holding a celebration of the sun this summer in the luscious seclusion of our sixteen acre retreat. It’ll be a time to pause, to breathe, to sink into the natural spaces of the Hearth and surrender to the magic joys of solstice time. An opportunity to attune and listen closely to our bodies' needs. Rest, resource, reconnect and celebrate.  

With spacious practices we invite you to: 

⁃ Connect to earth, self and others 

⁃ Restore your nervous system 

⁃ Reflect on the year so far 

⁃ Open to solstice illuminations 

⁃ Integrate insights and inspirations you receive to carry forward into the months ahead 

We'll be able to review our year so far, feel into the emerging fruits of our labours, check our course and choose how we want to direct our energies for the next half of the annual cycle. Through supported processes we will journey and enquire:


- How has our year gone so far? What can we celebrate? 

- How do we manage the surge of energy that comes at this time of year? 

- What is our relationship with our own active solar and receptive earth energies?  

- How might we come into deeper restorative balance? 

We will invite this though a combination of:  

◦ Nature Connection 

◦ Creative expression 

◦ Mindfulness 

◦ Movement 

◦ Hot Tub  

◦ Breathwork 

◦ Facilitated Circle 

◦ Delicious, nourishing, vegetarian food  

Course Leaders:  

Sophie Burns - nature connection facilitator, bringing intuitive approaches to cultivating care for land and each other.  

Freddy Weaver - ecopsychologist and counsellor brings his passion for personal and collective transformation in alignment with nature.

Camping and all vegetarian meals are included in the price, which is offered on a sliding scale £220 - £250. Participants self select which tier on the scale they are able to able to purchase. 

Additional accomodation (see here) at a reduced cost for participants is available to book for your stay should you wish for some extra creature comfort. Please contact us directly for more information.

Whilst the processes we use will be, we hope, highly therapeutic and we'll establish a restorative level of 'safety' together this event is not therapy. The context is intentionally more relaxed and fluid. If you have any concerns about your psychological wellbeing please get in touch to explore whether this retreat will be suitable to meet your needs.

As we are only publishing this event late in the day (but with great enthusiasm!)  please note that we will need a minimum number of bookings to run. So please do not book your travel arrangements until we confirm it is going ahead (we will confirm a minimum of 10 days before - 11th June 2024).
