Wild Awake

Shifting from our everyday worldly lives to enchanted mythical realms we will begin as light falls, sitting around a fire, in a circle, listening to a European folk story followed by a night of sleeping out under the stars. Dreaming together and listening for the call of the forest, the myths of our times and of our lives.

This programme weaves together wilderness practices with mythic perspectives, offering us the opportunity to understand our common humanity whilst also appreciating our own unique journeys.

Our time together will include dream council, a threshold walk and creative writing.

You have to be in the presence of the story, which I regard as a living being. Myth moves like a lively river through swarthy packs of reindeer, great aristocratic families, and the wild gestures of an Iranian carpet seller. A myth is not much to do with the past, but a kind of magical present that can flood our lives when the conditions are just so. It is not just the neurosis of us humans trying to fathom our place on earth, but sometimes the earth actually speaking back to us. That’s why some stories can be hard to approach, they are not necessarily formed from a human point of view.

Natasha Lythgoe

I guide individuals and groups through life transitions with nature. With over fifteen years experience leading programmes that connect people back to their true nature, The Art of ReWilding weaves together the main threads of my life; creativity, dharma (truth), mythic journeys, the intelligence of the body and nature.

My passion is for workshops that support you to embark upon your path, change it or go deeper into the path you are already on. Programmes that bring you into a profound encounter with nature, making time and space to find a bigger perspective and connect with what matters most in life.

Underpinning everything is a care for deep ecology and community. When we act with ecological self interest not only do we support ourselves, our families but also the wider community of life.
