About the event

Embrace your goddess within! Come and join my outdoor experience and reclaim your inner Spirit in a circle of freedom with other like-minded women. We are planting our seed of our Sisterhood... one witch is powerful... but when two or more women come together they create Magick.

Myself and my best friend Laura Buxton, an artist, socialite, and qualified teacher, are hosting our first ever retreats to make our mark in the world. To introduce ourselves to you properly, we want to show you a small taster of our work. Expect to see longer and more powerful retreats in the future, incorporating activities like these and so much more. This is just our first step in a long journey to growing our seed. We are growing a large tree, and what we have planned long term will be so much bigger! We are really excited to announce our brand new Runaway Retreats, and hope that you will join us in the future. 

Forest Bathing has routes in Japan, and is a mindfulness practice which helps connect you to nature, sometimes alone, but with company can increase the healing benefits. It is a peaceful and quiet practice as distractive sounds will spoil the full experience - for this reason unfortunately children under the age of 16 are unable to participate in this event. Dogs are welcomed as long as they are appropriately trained and cared for. Forest Bathing includes meditation and tea ceremonies to complement your ritual. Art therapy is incorporated into our Retreat for the simple purpose of feeling good for creating something!

This mini Half-Day Retreat will be held in the beautiful wild woodlands of Hamsterley Forest. We will start our day with a cleansing meditation and tea ceremony, followed by a sharing circle with journaling activity. You will be provided with workbooks for the day which you can keep and treasure, as well as gift bags full of lovely smelling goodies by Tropic Skincare. Further in the day, cozy up in a warm local spot to enjoy a delicious afternoon tea with locally sourced treats. Paint, draw, or craft freely with materials provided. Your retreat is complete with a Goddess photoshoot, tree connection activity and a freeing forest dance to celebrate your new Sisterhood. We will end the day with another sharing circle and embrace as one. Your gift bags will also include treatment vouchers which you are free to book in your own time. We look forward to sharing our Spring Awakening with you...
