WomenWell in the Wild Day Retreat
Step into Spring with Qigong
Sunday, May 17th, 2020, 10.30am-5pm
Ashlyn Woods, near Cambridge
Escape your busy life for a replenishing day of gentle movement to harmonise your energy with Spring's vibrant re-emergence in these enchanting woods. Extra delights include friendly female company, delicious food and relaxed chatting in the woodland shelters.
As the days lengthen and the natural world emerges from regenerating dormancy and bursts back to life with the vibrant spectacle of Spring, we too expect to feel renewed and rearing to go. But this is often not the case and many people find it hard to get their own motor started again after the cold, damp Winter.
Taking a day to immerse ourselves in the raw energy of nature's green Springtime upsurge in the woods will help to unblock any stuckness. And our Qigong movement will consolidate that shift, allowing us to re-emerge into our new cycle with new vision and hope for the future.
Here are some words women at previous woodland day retreats used to describe their experience:
"Peaceful, transforming, grounding, nurturing, filling, restful, wise, relaxing, motivational, calming, rejuvenating, just wonderful."
Don't miss your chance to rest and replenish in these magical woods.
Qigong is a Chinese healing art combining movement, breath and focused awareness.
The gentle movements are accessible to all, practised standing or sitting on a chair.
No experience is needed.
Just wear warm, comfortable clothes.
Feel free to invite your friends.
We'll go ahead rain or shine
(using the ample shelters and enjoying the fires even more if it is wet).
I'd love it if you could bring a homemade sweet or savoury snack to share.
(Delicious soup and bread is provided).
The venue is 20-minutes west of Cambridge.
I'll send you directions and other information after booking.
If you need to find a lift to my Spring Qigong Day Retreat, let me know.
Price: £40 for one / £70 for two
"The coming together of a group of women to move, share and explore their relationship with their body and its movements. Perfectly situated in beautiful Ashlyn woods," Beverley C.
"It is a programme of arts workshops for women to be together in community and in playfulness in peaceful ancient woodland and fields through all seasons and all weather. Workshops run for women, by women – nourishing life-long learning in the arts and practical skills. Workshops so far have been in singing, poetry, and weaving - all led by established Cambridgeshire artists.
We move through the seasons, slowly building in new workshops and inviting new women artists to share their skills and passions with others. It feels important that workshops are repeated annually, life circumstances allowing, so that women who miss a workshop have the opportunity to do it again the following year."
