(The Nature Retreat)

with Fanny and Be Browne


Next Retreat :None Planned
But Be Browne and Joanna Watters will offer a retreat on this theme - details below


This retreat supports us to land in a deeper relationship with this earth, a sense of belonging on the planet; to feel supported by the very ground we walk on, and the air we breathe. To taste the possibility that we not only have an intimate and life-long relationship with the Earth and indeed all the elements, but they are also who we are! To know ourselves as cells of the Earth, and to know ourselves AS space, is to come home to our essential embodied nature. And to know ourselves as human beings in a vaster landscape of Life is both humbling and greatly relieving.

Dartmoor has something that very few places in England still have – a sense of wilderness. Huge skies; wild, tumbling rivers; forests; rocks and tors that just have to be climbed. We have here a chance to come into a fresh and alive relationship with wildness, working directly with our very subjective experience of wild waters, wide open spaces, fire, plants and creatures and not least, the English weather!

Many of us have a default position when we’re out in nature. We look at it, we hike through it, we picnic in it; for some of us it’s an endless search for the sublime nature experience that never seems quite to happen; for others we pretty much ignore what’s around us, being far more interested in whatever we’re thinking about. How you receive and respond to the world, give yourself to the world, makes all the difference here; and, of course, how nature gives itself to you in response. How would it be to let yourself find a whole-body response to a tree, to play like a child in the rush of a waterfall, to curl up in the arms of a mossy rock, or press your body to the ground as you would with a lover?

The retreat will be over 5 days in summer. We will camp in the grounds of a village hall, using the kitchen, shower and toilets there, as well as the hall itself for some parts of the retreat.
