About The Event
This beautiful space will be created by you all as a collective. We will cook together, be mindful together, learn new skills and by spending a night away in the woods reconnect with the natural world. I will use the Forest School approach to guide you in what ever it is you would like to do or learn but will provide some inspiration if you need a starting point. You could learn practical skills such as fire lighting or spoon carving. You could immerse yourself in natural art or dying techniques. Or you might just want to kick back and read a book in a hammock. It really will be your choice and you can dip in and out of whatever you choose. I will lead a wildflower, tree and bird identification nature walk to explore the woods and help you familiarise yourself with the natural world around you. Both days will start with some simple breathing and listening or a short guided meditation to tune you into the natural world around you. I will be offering a discount to anyone who would like to contribute a short session over the weekend. The wonderful women I continually meet have so many skills and a vast knowledge to offer. I would very much love someone to offer some relaxation, meditation, movement or space holding to share collectively. Anything you would like to share to broaden the scope of the camp would be very much welcomed. There are 4 discounted tickets available to reflect a contribution to the weekend.
Prior to booking please ensure you read and agree to our terms & conditions
We meet in Shining Cliff Wood near Ambergate. Please see here for details of how to find us
I find my connection to nature essential to help me function and it keeps me content. I never feel as free as when I spend time in nature, cooking on fire and sleeping outdoors. I would like to create the simple spirit of doing things slowly and allowing you the space and time to be yourself in the company of women. It will be a slow paced weekend and we will go with the flow. All food and drink will be provided and cooked on the fire. All you need to bring is some personal drinking water, tent, everything you need for sleeping plus your personal belongings. I do have some spare equipment you are welcome to borrow so please ask, I wouldn't want this to be a barrier to you coming. There will be a communal tent for us to hold space and in case the weather isn't what we would hope for. I do hope we will be sitting around the fire sharing stories and relaxing on a beautiful midsummers eve.
The camping area at Shining Cliff Wood is completely off grid. There is no electricity or running water. There will be a composting toilet in a toilet tent away from the camping area. The camping area is just a 5 minute walk from where you park and wheelbarrows will be available to help you to bring your things into the wood if you need. We will help each other to set up camp and make life as easy as possible to enjoy the beautiful surroundings of the woods. This really is a special place to camp and spend time and made even more special being free of all the trappings of everyday life.
If you would like more information please contact Kerry on 07854239654 or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
There are only 12 places available. I want this to be an intimate group and create a space where you feel comfortable. I have also kept costs very low as I dont want price to inhibit giving yourself some much needed time.
I am mindful of the environment and our impact on our bodies and the earth. We will be as low impact and waste as little as possible. We will eat healthy, whole vegetarian or vegan food. I have an inclusive policy which accommodates for any dietry requirements. Just include the information on the booking form.
We will run rain or shine so please come prepared. You never know what the British weather will throw at us so full waterproofs and plenty of layers are advisable. We encourage people of all abilities but a certain level of fitness is required to explore the woodland. There may be sitting or lying on the ground required so if you need to please bring a kneeling pad.
We look forward to seeing you in the woods!
