Greet the Autumn with Qigong

Saturday, October 11th, 2020, 10.30am-5pm

Ashlyn Woods, near Cambridge

Step into the woods for a nourishing day of gentle movement and reflective stillness to harmonise your energy with nature's autumnal drawing in. Extra delights include friendly female company, delicious homemade soup and relaxed chatting around the fire in the woodland shelters.

As nature dims her Summer lights and slides into Autumn, spending this annual retreat day bathed in the aura of Ashlyn's ancient trees is my favourite way to align myself with the seasonal shift.

At this precious time of year, the trees are pushing their waste into their falling leaves, so they can refine their juicy sap and draw this essence down to their roots to be stored and replenished over the Winter.

You too can tap into this autumnal energy of refinement. It encourages us to turn an honest mirror on our lives and clear from them what no longer belongs, so we can nurture the juicy essence of our truest selves.

Our movement and stillness, reflection and sharing on this Qigong day retreat will help you do just this, so that Autumn's reflective drawing inwards feels like a supportive hug, not a suffocating squeeze. 

Here are some words women at last year's day retreat 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, refine and recharge in these magical woods.

Qigong is a Chinese internal art combining movement, breath and focused awareness.

The movements appear gentle - but are quite hard work ...

No Qigong experience is needed.

Just wear warm, comfortable clothes. 

Feel free to invite your friends.

We'll go ahead rain or shine
(using the well-ventilated shelters and enjoying the fires even more if 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 Autumn Qigong Day Retreat, let me know.

We'll be out in the fresh air, but numbers will still be limited this year to ensure we maintain a safe distance. So book soon!!

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.

What is WomenWell in the Wild?

WomenWell in the Wild was set up by Filipa Pereira-Stubbs in the autumn of 2011.

Here is how Filippa describes these workshops:


"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."
