About the Event
Earth Connection Retreat
Join us for a weekend of slowing down to the gentle rhythm of nature..
An immersive experience of simply “being in nature”
Let the bush do what the bush does best, soothe the soul and clear the mind.
The fast pace of society does not allow for humans to nourish the depths of their being that need stillness & peace to operate at a harmonious level..
This 3 day retreat has been set up to provide spacious time in nature, allowing the body to slow down and really listen and pay attention to the wonders of the natural world and how our senses respond to them. Letting curiosity guide us to deeper relationship with nature.
What to expect:
- Guided bushwalks throughout the private property surrounded by wilderness
- Guided "Deep Ecology" practises
- Bird Language & ID
- Biomimicry workshop- "becoming animal"
- Fireside sharing
- Free time to embrace the wild surroundings
- Sensory activities
- Intro to primitive skills; fire by friction, natural cordage, wild foods and medicines foraging.
Our intention with this offering is to provide a space for people to leave the daily grind and really get some quality time in nature doing things that build relationship with the local eco system and reset the nervous system. A space to tap out of the stimulation and into presence with nature re-connecting with our innate sense of belonging to the wider web of existence.
Some of the themes across the weekend will be
- Ethical harvest; how to forage wild foods and medicines in a way that does not damage the eco system
- The language of birds and humans age old connection with them
- How practising the ancestral skills connects us with a deeper sense of meaning and respect for the earth
- Rewilding in an urban environment
- How nature heals us
