About the Event

Join us for our biannual Womens Rewilding Gathering Summer edition.

The most frequent feedback we recieve at these gatherings is: They need to go for longer, so we have added an extra 2 days! Making this a 5 day gathering. A whole lot more time to go deeper into each of the skills and get to explore the lush surrounding rainforest.

We are excited to be sharing our seasonal Womens Rewilding Gathering with whoever is feeling the call of the wild once again. These weekends are a beautiful opportunity to tap out of the mundane and tap into the therapeutic benefits of being immersed in nature, spending time with fellow women & sharing nourishing meals by the fire. 

Come and be empowered to feel confident in the bush through exploring new edges whilst being held by the land. You will experience a deeper connection with the land and develop relationships with the natural abundance all around you while getting in touch with our innately wild origins. 

We explore a range of earth skills and nature connection practises that drop us into our senses, allowing us to slow down into bush time and connect with one another in a safe and raw environment.

This Gathering is a 5-day campout in the wild embrace of lush rainforest held by 2 creeks meeting.

There is a potency learning & sharing these practical earth skills with women.

Something feels more comfortable in my body when I’m teaching a group of women fire by friction or skinning & butchering an animal.

There is a commonality we are share - being women - which creates a beautiful safe space to be vulnerable & go deep in.

A woman who attended our recent Women’s Rewilding Gathering shared that her prior experience learning fire by friction in a group consisting of all humans was very different, she found her self pulling back and letting the enthusiastic strong guys do the work. Whereas she shared at the Women’s Gathering learning hand drill, she was able to fully immerse in the skill & be supported by fellow women. I love this feedback because it affirms this trajectory of sharing these physical skills with in womens spaces.

We also had a woman share that she had a lot of resistance entering an all female space, yet found the gathering to be such a safe and inclusive space for her.

Something that we emphasise on whenever teaching these skills is that the way we teach them is very different to a survivalist mentality. Coming from an approach of relationship building, connection to land and recognising our place within ecology. This is not a new way of being at all. In fact it’s really old!

Our land based ancestors shared this deeper relationship of connection with ecology rather than conquering or being seperate.

So these skills are not just practical skills that empower you in the bush, they’re a way of living with nature as a part of nature. They’re a way of getting to know your local ecology in a loving & intimate way. They’re a way of rooting yourself into your ecology so the plants & animals become allies rather than strangers. They’re a way of belonging to the land. A way of being human. All of a sudden a walk through the bush becomes an interactive experience as you recognise plants that you can use to make fire, heal wounds, craft cordage and so forth. 

What to expect:

  • Guided bushwalks in the surrounding rainforest ecology
  • Wild Foods and Medicines walk & talk: learn safe & ethical foraging & ID various useful plants.
  • Bird Language: Learn to listen to the land by fine tuning your hearing senses & paying attention to what the birds are revealing. 
  • Shelter building: learn to build a shelter with natural materials
  • Natural string making: learn the process of retting plant fibres & learn to make cordage/string
  • Fire by friction workshop: be mentored by us on making fire by friction with hand drill  bow drill methods. 
  • Talk on Ancestral Skills (honouring the whole animal, traditional tanning methods): We will speak about various craft projects 
  • Traditional fire cooking methods
  • Learn some basics on camping solo: tips & skills that will ensure your confidence while out bush.
  • Nature connection practises include barefoot walking, silence in nature, and sit spots.
  • Solo day sit spot & optional solo one-night camp out
  • Fireside songs, meals and sharing
  • Natural Movement

The gathering will be a balance between learning skills and delving into deep connection to the earth and ourselves.

As women, I think we can all agree that a special energy arises when we gather together, a relaxing of the nervous system as we indulge in the oxytocin around us and within us. So this is an opportunity to nurture yourself and gift yourself that time of nourishment that is so lacking in a woman's life in the modern world whilst simultaneously empowering your wild woman through learning hands on skills of the earth.

All levels of experience welcome, go as deep as you like with each activity.

This is an off-grid camping gathering. There are no indoor kitchen facilities or electricty. We will have a camp kitchen set up with a gas stove for tea and coffee. We encourage you to bring an eski and your own little camp kitchen set up to make breakfast and lunch more easeful for you.

Eva Angophora Founder of Wild Beings.

This will be my 4th year of facilitating Womens Rewilding Gatherings & each time we create that space I fall more in-love with sharing these practical earth-skills in a space of just women.

I spent much of the last 5 years living outdoors practising various earth skills such as traditional tanning, friction fire, fibrecraft, wild foods & medicines, animal processing & more. I have sculpted a life based around wild living. My Passion is to share a more connected wholesome culture and provide spaces where people can connect with the Old Ways and incorporate more of these healthy habits into lifestyle choices. In a world that is so estranged from it's wild roots, I see the immense value these earth based ways of being have on individuals. Im an ancestral skills enthusiast, deeply in awe of the ancient crafts and skills of our ancestors and most definitely an apprentice to the old ways.
