Camp Fire

The Fire Ceremony

During a sacred fire ceremony we sit in circle together and use the power of group prayer and intention to energetically release things that are no longer meant for us, whilst also giving thanks to Mother Earth for giving us our place in the cosmos. We bring two items. Firstly, something that symbolises something in your life that you would like to release. It can be anything, valuable or symbolic, as long as it has meaning for you. It might be something you have held onto for a very long time, and in that, you have held on to the story behind it. We often find when we release the item that holds the story, we are free to energetically shift out of the binds of that story, making more space in our lives for what our hearts truly desire.  The other item is something which symbolises a prayer that you would like to make, or a natural item which can hold your prayer before it is placed into the fire like a leaf, flower or pine cone. These can be found on the land here if needed. If you have any further questions about anything feel free to get in touch for a chat.

Hello! My name is Millie and I am a self taught cook with over 15 years experience in the kitchen.
To me, food is so important not only for our bodies but also for our communities. It brings people together in day to day life and also in celebration. That's what I love about cooking for people.
My experience ranges from huge commercial kitchens creating handmade bakes and preserves, to cooking for the elderly & people with complex needs and diets. I trained in nutrition during my Health and Social Care career and I understand the complexity of an individual's needs and diet. Food is medicine after all.
For the past 7 years I've run a not for profit food waste initiative that intercepts perfectly edible food from heading to landfill. We create wholesome meals in our community café from this food and serve it on a pay what you can basis.
My passion lies in food and bringing people together so I am so excited to meet you and cook you delicious meals that I hope you'll find just as nourishing as all the other loveliness at this retreat.

Gemma Fox

(Teacher and therapist)

Hi, I'm Gemma, founder of Gower Wild Wellbeing. Before becoming a conservationist and ecotherapist, I was a yoga teacher. I've been teaching yoga for over 10 years, originally training in Sivananda style yoga, then going on to study Ashtanga, Yin and specialising in Prenatal yoga with CPD in Yoga Nidra. The style I now lead is quite unique, combining elemental visualisations, pranayama, and strong vinyasa flow balanced with gentle yin postures. 

To combine yoga with ecotherapy we will be taking some of our sessions outside in the beautiful grounds and woodlands of Werganrose Farm to connect with the land and the elements. We will be communing with nature, practicing nature focused healing guided visualisations and using earth, fire, water and air to energetically ground, transmute, cleanse and detoxify.

Fleur Handley

(Teacher and Therapist)

 

Hi I'm Fleur! With four disciplines of yoga and over 15 years of experience in teaching, I am a yogi very dedicated to the practice. I love to bring joy and heart to my classes and my students describe them as fun and light but true to the roots and tradition of yoga. Initially trained at the Sivananda Ashram in Kerala, India, I then went on to study Anusara yoga, Yoga Therapy, Yin Yoga and Forest Yoga. My style of yoga now is a unique and balanced blend of dynamic empowering postures, attention to alignment and meditative stillness with a prime focus on the breath.

My classes offer immense opportunity to dive deep and I will support you through your process. 

"This incredible retreat is perfect for those looking to delve deeper into their yoga practice and connect with nature and other like minded people. The setting is in a beautiful farmhouse in expansive grounds with lakes, woodland and babbling brooks. Gemma and Fleur are highly experienced teachers who guide you through your practice and meditation, connecting with nature at a deep level. You will come away feeling relaxed, fulfilled and with a wonderful sense of wellbeing. I highly recommend this retreat!"
