Join us on this unique nature retreat. Incorporating wilderness living on a beautiful part of the Dorset coast.
We will journey together across the land, foraging, exploring as we go. The pace will be gentle, with opportunities to stop and make a cup of wild tea with what we find. We will set up camp in a secret woodland spot. Sitting around a camp fire we will share stories facilitated by two experienced guides.
Waking with tea and breakfast around the camp fire we will practice mindfulness and wake up the body and mind ready to embrace the journey the new day brings.
This is for you if you like spending time outdoors and wish to learn practices and skills for deepening your connection to nature, and to yourself.

We will carry all of the food and shelter we need over the adventure and prepare a camp to settle into the night. We will provide you with a kit list and we will even help you put your tent up if you need it! This retreat will be somewhat physically challenging due to carrying all you will need on the 2 day trip, but we will be walking at a relaxed pace. Please message us if you are unsure of your fitness abilities.
