INTO THE WILD
Each day will begin with a meditative sitting in nature, as we gradually reveal the natural conversation around us and what it means. As you move deeper into this great wild conversation, it becomes apparent just how connected it is and how it crosses the species’ boundaries. In many ways, it is the original worldwide web of information.
Then, taking this peace with you, you will move off into nature on your daily quests, which will culminate with you choosing and creating your own ‘medicine spot’, after the manner of the Native American. It is here that the real magic will happen as you realise that the supernatural is no more than super nature and that you are an indivisible part of it.
As well as immersing yourself in nature you will also be nourishing your body with beautiful, organic, seasonal, and local food, supplemented with wild food that we find. The water will be taken directly from the mountain spring where it flows from the rocks; aromatic herbs also will be collected to strew around your camp.
We will finish our experience with a fire ceremony. This will be the coming together of all the elements of the preceding days. Here is where you will imbue one of the totems with something new that you wish to take away with you. The other will be lovingly placed within the fire to allow something else to be left behind here, something no longer needed in your life.
This is a liminal journey which will leave you feeling refreshed and reconnected to the great beauty that surrounds us, and to that which lies within.
