It’s time again! Our next retreat is happening in May, from Saturday the 7th through the week until the following Sunday the 15th. People can come for any or all of the days, as they like, and we’ll get up to all of the usual activities, movement training of all sorts, playing on the natural jungle gym by the river, swimming, waking running and crawling through the bush, meditating, practicing qigong, massage, climbing trees, lifting and throwing rocks, contact improvisation, strength and mobility training, capoeira, wrestling and martial arts, fire making, bush tucker, basketry, tracking, sensory awareness games, bird language, music, cooking and eating together around the campfire, and generally chilling out.

Guest teachers this time will include Stuart Gadenne, ex member of the Australian special forces, Movnat teacher and formerly of Tengeri Natural Fitness; Janet Ranken, maker of wild nature art and sculpture, forager, basket weaver, who’ll be teaching some bush tucker, fire-making, basketry and “eco-printing” dyeing fabric with foraged plants; and Lee Trew of Bluegum Bushcraft, sharing some more rewilding knowledge, tracking, stone tool making, and whatever other things he might have up his sleeve.
