Women In the Woods - 1. Earth Goddess

Join Artist,Yoga and Nia Teacher Ruth Wheeler and other inspiring Women outdoors for a series of Summer Wellness Workshops and Talks taking place on Saturday afternoons/evening.

Sitting and walking outside we will be  inspired by the nature that surrounds us,the trees, woodland and lake views is the perfect opportunity to feel connected to nature and do a spot of forest bathing to foster our creative souls.


The first of our series will be themed around the Earth Goddess and I will lead this session through a beautiful mindful walk and Yoga -nia Practice connecting with your inner goddess, we will gather around the fire pit with clay from the earth and create our own goddess that speaks to us through our experience. We will create our own goddess natural perfume from the "gifts of the earth" with pure and potent essential oils that can be used on your skin or as a natural diffuser and be guided through a visualisation lying on the forest or lakeside floor.

Each session will follow a similar pattern and will incorporate a mindful walk around the estate, we will dance,practise Yoga or a creative session  with intention  and then we will gather around the fire circle with a cuppa and Ruth or  guest female speaker/artist  will share something special and we will finish with a guide meditation or mindfullness.
