This is an invitation to come together for a Summer Solstice Retreat week-end led by the Wisdomtree team in the beautiful 70 acre woodland setting of Hazelhill Wood
All are very welcome, but we anticipate the retreat would be particularly valued by therapists, coaches, mindfulness or resilience practitioners, facilitators, workers in health/education/social care, change makers, social entrepreneurs.' (in no particular order!)
A time out together to recharge and renew and deepen our connection with nature.
We will offer a very simple structure with times for meditation - silence - deep listening - Forest Bathing (Shinrin –Yoku) , alongside space for people to offer to share practices or activities, and to bring stories and poems.
You may be a meditator and consider your spirituality as a key part of your life - or you may not relate to that at all but intuitively sense that your system could do with some nature immersion. This is open to people of all paths and faiths or none. The most important part is to allow this beautiful place to work its magic.
Our experience of being with many groups in this wood is that once there - our systems re-set to 'wood time' and people sometimes need to just rest and be on their own - so please see all offerings as optional!
The venue is an offgrid woodland education centre. It has a range of 3 different wooden buildings and varied standards of accommodation from very basic - some mattresses on the floor – some beds – some rooms for couples if needed, some single rooms and some shared rooms as well as some space for camping. Compost toilets. A dining room and a group room - Hot showers - woodburning fires , and a wood fired sauna.
Bring your own bedding and towels.
Timings: 5pm Friday - 4pm Sunday
Cost (including food): £100 (camping) £160 (shared rooms) + £20 for single room or + £30 for staying in the Forest Ark building (less basic!)
Space is limited to about 18 people depending on how many people need single rooms or were willing to camp.
There will be some sharing of everyday practicalities - cooks helpers - washing up - final clear up at the end etc.
