“What a great experience it has been for me to be around you all as we seasonally dipped in and out of Dartington. What a space we created in which to reflect and reveal our collective wisdom. How wonderful to experience the space within to witness our insights and to feel the presence of such love.”

— Michael Brown, Natural Wisdom Participant 2018


Our focus……

A gentle journey of discovery across the four seasons, exploring the principles that underpin our lives and pointing us back to our true nature as human beings. We will more deeply connect to our natural essence and take a deeper look at our innate capacity to live peaceful, creative and fulfilled lives.

Understanding our interdependence with the whole of nature and our unique way of experiencing life as human beings, enables us to more easily navigate the ups and downs of life. The positive impact of taking the time to understand this more deeply results in an ease and balance in life that arises effortlessly as we rest more comfortably in our true nature – a feeling of being at home.

Who is it for?

This programme is open to everyone and will be of particular value and interest to those who are curious about exploring nature, psychology and spirituality in a practical way that enables you to:

Increase your creativity & connect with your life’s passion

• Resolve relationship difficulties effortlessly

• Relax and enjoy your life now, not in some imaginary future

• Release yourself from negative conditioning, old wounds and painful memories

• Quit struggling, striving, trying too hard & doing too much (have you noticed how unhelpful they are?)

• Increase efficiency & productivity – achieve more with less effort

• Let go of any destructive habits and behavioural patterns

• Breathe easier and eliminate stress by understanding how it gets created

What will we learn?

Whether you join us for the whole year long programme or drop in to one or more of our seasonal retreats, we will do as nature does……

Nature reminds us that life is good and has a magical way of evaporating our busy thoughts. It opens us up to the joy of being alive and a gratitude for all that it offers us in our experience of life and living.

The seasons reflect different aspects of our humanness and provide a rich seam of inspiration for our personal journey of exploration. We will use the cycles and seasons of nature as a framework to guide our time together and inspire a deeper connection to our own true nature.

We are nature. Being clear that there is an ebb and flow annually, seasonally and in every moment creates a certainty that we can navigate the undulations of life and harness its natural rhythms to support us to live, love and create our most fulfilling lives.

It is this wisdom, the wisdom of nature and our innate capacity to live a connected, creative and rich experience of life that this group programme will explore and celebrate.

We will learn about the principles that underpin our psychological and spiritual lives, reconnecting us to our innate wellbeing and wisdom and bringing us home to our true nature, of peace, love and harmony.

Where and When?

Our time together will be spent in the beautiful setting of Dartington Hall in Devon with lots of opportunity to explore the beauty of nature on the grounds of the estate.

Wholesome, locally-grown organic food is available at the Dartington Hall eateries. We will also have the joy of experiencing the beautiful gardens and estate which will bring us closer to the nature of life and how this creates inspiration for our personal journey and hopes for the programme.

Our eyes are the windows to the soul and only when our eyes are free of yesterdays scratches will we see today with any clarity
