Thursday 14TH - sunday 17th november 2019
November, when the leaves, seeds and berries have fallen from the trees and the cooler winter weather has set in. The days are shorter and the nights are longer, making this is the perfect time to embrace the slow dark season and give time for nourishment to mind, soul and body.
We have set aside a long weekend at fforest for women to come together in the surroundings nature and slow down to restore energy, rekindle a passion for fireside creativity and be ready for the festive season ahead.
Over this winter retreat we will go forest bathing, a silent woodland walk and meditation guided by the wonderful Gemma David, helping us gently connect with ourselves and to the natural rhythm of life. There will be nature inspired workshops, foraging for winter greenery to make a winter wreath, winter scented candles and pinecone firelighters. With natural threads and yarns, talented weaver Suzanne Gattrell Hodshon will teach us how to weave. And the weekend is not complete without some chopping and chatting in the farmhouse kitchen.
