Come for a digital detox, invigorating coastal walks, an immersion in nature, beach-combing, a snooze in the hammock, daily yoga in the barn, delicious, nutritious very locally sourced vegetarian food, reflective time for yourself, sharing laughter with liked-minded others.
Jacqui will be helping facilitate this retreat with me. She is passionate about plants and everything they offer us – a vegan cook and a Green Witch, she looks to nature to bring joy, nourishment and healing for mind, body and soul. Working with herbs, flower waters, essential oils and wild plants, Jacqui will join us on a walk and share the ‘old knowledge’ of plants that Green Witches work with, identifying everyday hedgerow plants that have magic and medicinal properties. After the walk we will together prepare some plants that we have sustainably foraged to nurture our feet and legs after walking, a foot scrub, a magnesium foot bath or a moisturising oil, over a delicious herbal brew.
£280 in comfortable shared dormitory accommodation, includes:-
Friday & Saturday night accommodation, all meals, daily yoga sessions, introduction to nordic walking technique, guided walks on Saturday & Sunday (& use of poles if needed), & as much you-time as you allow yourself!
Places are limited to 16.
