Event description
Welcome to a 3-day retreat in deep nature immersion, deep breathing, deep listening, deep embodiment...

About this Event


We invite you to delve deep into self-transformation, remembering our roots as nature, and expanding our experience of love and passion to create.

Autumn’s song reminds us of the impermanence of life, the perpetual passage to the great unknown and how vital it is to be present. Leaves loosen their hold and layers of self fall gently into our hands as the season’s wheel tips again in preparation for death and rebirth.

In a safe and sacred vessel of non-judgement, trust, acceptance, surrender, authentic communication and nature connection, we will attune to what is required in the moment, allowing for all thoughts and feelings to be expressed, and to let go of what is no longer supporting our growth. We will awaken to our heightened senses, activating the serpent life force to revitalise the body and cleanse our hearts and minds to receive greater flow of bliss.

The beautiful forest of the Nuuksio national park will hold our journey in her lap as we connect with this land of Pine and Birch, mossy boulders, Nature Spirits. The clean forest lake is right on our doorstep and all the medicine that is there for us and that we have for her too… Our healing is interwoven with the healing of Mother Earth.

The days will involve :

● movement & kundalini yoga

● sharing & connection exploration

● intuitive voice activation

● transformational breathwork

● sound healing & plant medicine
