Abundance & gratitude

Sat 10th – Sun 11 Sept. 2022.
Wraxall Woods


Many women would love to practice on their own outdoors, but find deeply engrained, conditioned fears stop them. Our aim is to help women experience the peace, nourishment and joy of the woods to deepen their practice and transform nature into a place of refuge.

In Summer, the green tree canopy is thick; the bright sun stays in the sky until late; the hoverflies and bees hum in dappled daylight and the owls call at dusk. With this Rewilding Women overnight, you can relax into, enjoy and give gratitude for all the earth provides.

Over the weekend, women will spend time together and alone within their own camp in beautiful, private woodlands near Wraxall (see photos here). We will practise sitting, walking and nature meditations structured around the theme, although participation in activities is optional and you are welcome to follow your own direction. A formal meditation practice is not essential, but you do need to sit in stillness for up to 40 minutes.

We will provide delicious vegan meals, a campfire and nature meditation activities. A minimum of three and a maximum of eight women can attend. A zoom pre-meet will introduce retreatants to each other and help prepare for the weekend. To cover costs of the woods hire, food and catering, we ask for individual contributions of £75 with a deposit of £20. Please don’t let financial or transport concerns stop you from coming, as bursaries and carpooling are available. For further information and to book, please contact Lesley on
