We will dive more deeply into the skills of group awareness and body movement and start to explore the use of silence as an avenue for personal healing and growth.

I loved it, it was a practical and spiritual learning. It has changed my life, my way of thinking…” Michelle

 “I felt like there were all these instincts and senses waking up that I had never known existed…” Andrew Walker-Morison

 “During these few days, life seemed to slow down, connections were deeply felt and challenges were resolved in a most natural and tribal way. I was unaware just how profound and transformational this time in the bush would be.”  Libby Perkins
