Saturday 30th 10:30-17:30 & Sunday 31st 11:00-17:00



A time to be in community with Women, exploring dance, embodied movement and connection through touch

Mirroring the generous abundance in nature at this time of year, we will be offering simple yet powerful embodied practices, that allow our bodies to open up and blossom, inviting a deeper sense of aliveness and connection with ourselves and the Earth.

We are creating space for Women to be together at this potent time of year to experience ourselves more fully in our bodies, through exploring the modalities of dance, movement & simple, optional touch exercises. Our intention is to create a space of safety for you to connect with yourself,  with nature and with other Women.


There will be the opportunity to be outside on the earth, nourishing and restoring ourselves while being in deep relationship with the land.


We have a shared belief that safety and trust needs to be at the centre of our personal and collective growth and healing, this weekend will be a safely held space for you to explore the potential of being even more fully alive and awakened in your body. By creating more of a felt sense in the body this allows us to be even more in alignment and in honest communication with our inner and outer worlds.
