After lunch we will regroup for more deep and explorative work and then foraging will take place ready for cooking dinner together as a group outside on the fells using the horses to help carry the food and equipment.

After dinner, guests will have the opportunity to talk, share and take part in activities around an open fire.

Sunday morning will start off with another yoga and movement session to wake up the body followed by a wild swim or waterfall jump and a hot shower before breakfast.

Talking circle and seminars will take place before lunch with the aim of checking in with what you discovered, the previous day and how this is going to transform you.

After lunch you will be taken on a wild adventure to discover your inner ape amongst the trees, the water, the land and the rock.

After food we will check in and say our farewell before leaving you to absorb the achingly beautiful surroundings with your renewed and embodied wisdom for one more night.
