Camping in the bush by the beautiful river and national park, trees and rocks, goannas, kangaroos and wombats, learning, exploring and training with great people. Come for the whole time or a few days, just an absolute minimum of two nights so there is time to drop in, relax and connect.
Several hours (as much as you can handle) of movement practice every day:
Practices to wake up, strengthen, mobilise and express with each and every little bit of the body, to rehabilitate all of our old injuries and protect against new ones;
Moving the body through space, up and down off the ground with ease and grace, tumbling climbing running crawling rolling jumping and balancing, moving around obstacles, through different terrain, on trees and the jungle gym.
Games and partner work exploring contact, proximity, creativity, cooperation and challenge, wrestling, capoeira, martial arts from around the world, games, acrobatics and massage;
“Yogic” aspects: profound explorations of the central axis of the body, spinal undulations and the ancestral animal movements which come out of them, segmental abdominal and thoracic control, spinal breathing and centreline breathing, the foundations of breath control for health and meditation, pranayama, Wim Hof, qigong, internal practices and the science of body, breath and mind, of empathy, emotion, and the sense of self.
Throughout the retreat everyone who wants to will also get the chance to learn and work on a wide range of “ancestral skills” and crafts: making fire by friction, making cordage from natural fibers, basket weaving, plant identification and bush tucker foraging, wood carving, hide tanning and leather work, traditional food preparation, making and throwing spears, archery, tracking, stalking, bird language and sensory awareness, primitive fishing, and maybe even some primitive metallurgy on Harry’s primitive bush forge.
All that, as well as the camp library, communal kitchen, hammocks, fire baths by the river, chats around the central campfire, the combined knowledge and skills of an amazing community of people, spontaneous workshops and skill swaps, loads of time to chill.
