Wild Retreat: Samhain & Spirit
3rd – 5th November 2023
North Kernow (Cornwall)
Just a couple of days after the Waters and Land at St. Nectan’s Glen, Cornwall, are blessed in ceremony for the Celtic New Year, Samhain, we will share two nights of bliss and connection.
We will stay together at the waterfall itself in beautiful accommodation and share time in circle, out in the land, at sacred sites of immense story (herstory) and craft, tend and share.
Our plant kin for the Samhain retreat will be Mugwort – herb of protection, embodied empowerment and dreaming. We will meet other plant kin too but Mugwort shall infuse into our circle through craft, remedy and listening.
Elements we will share include:
~ threshold crossing
~ medicine walk
~ plant kin connection
~ remedy making and tasting
~ wild art with foraged pigments
~ wild crafting with foraged materials
~ visit to sacred labyrinths (we will walk to get there so be prepared, if you cannot walk or cannot walk easily get in touch to see what we could offer)
~ access to waterfall after hours
~ deep breathing and or yoga, self-care and nourishment
Organic teas are provided and each evening we will enjoy an organic meal together – for breakfast and lunch we will bring and share (or simply bring if you prefer).
We will have shared rooms in the stunning retreat cottages at the falls.
£397 per person including accommodation, trip to sacred sites and evening meals
The work is about bringing folk together, sharing in ceremony and tending ourselves, each other and the land. We are taking time to tune into the season and celebration, natural cycles and plant kin in their myriad cycles and expressions. We will work with elements and hands, heart and song and find our wild within.
You will take away plant remedies, plant kin crafts, art, songs, story and a beautiful shared experience.
Times and further information will be shared nearer the time but a rough guide would be:
Arrive 4-6pm Friday and leave around 2pm Sunday.
Booking is essential.
