With Wood Pigeon
Awareness! Belonging! Connection!
Nature Connection Retreat at Folleterre Monday 20th- Monday 27th August 2018
- When we get out of the glass bottles of our ego,
When we escape like squirrels
Turning in the cages of our personality
And get into the forests again,
We shall shiver with cold and fright
But things will happen to us
So that we don’t know ourselves.
Cool, unlying life will rush in,
And, passion will make our bodies taut with power,
We shall stand our feet with new power
And old things will fall down,
We shall laugh, and institutions will curl up like burnt paper.
–D.H. Lawrence Get Into the Forests Again
Come faeries, hear the call. Yoo-Hoo…. Folleterre is calling you to join us for a week in the late flowering summer for some gentle, nourishing and mindful being in our Faerie Sanctuary.
Come faeries and rewild your spirit with a playful, curious and mysterious journey into the hidden depths of Nature.
We will gather, discover and bear witness to the Magic of this land, each other and ourselves.
In this kindly and caring emergent space we will co-create rituals, fireside storytelling, heart circles, set intentions, explore embodied practices, meditate, discover the core routines of nature connection, awaken our senses, gaze at the stars, be in service to each other and gently become the silent witness to all that is.
Please note for this Retreat you are kindly requested to minimise the use of alcohol and any other substances to experience Awareness of the natural state.
There will be extended periods of kindly silence so that we may go more deeply into contact with ourselves and the land.
