A five-day retreat for queer folx & women to immerse into a brave space of svadhyaya (self-inquiry) and cyclical wisdom, held in the embrace of the Welsh wilderness. Grounded in daily yoga nidra, breathwork, embodied movement & sharing circles, we will spiral inwards & outwards to connect with our inner cycles (e.g. sleep, menstrual, life) and outer cycles (seasons, lunar, solar), exploring the relationship between and within. Embark on healing hikes and refreshing swims, using the embrace of nature to self-reflect. Take the opportunity to engage in deep listening and connect to the inherent wisdom resting in your body and the natural world.
