Have you ever had that rare and incredible feeling like everything is coming together, stars aligning, and you find yourself doing something or moving forward in a way that feels absolutely right?
Well that rare and incredible thing happened to me this year.
I had been sensing something shifting in me for a long time - a call to greater connection with nature in my life and business.
Recently I had found myself compelled to let go of certain types of work, which felt very strange and scary, as I wondered what I would do instead. So when my lovely friend and yoga attender Amanda invited me to visit Wild Acres, a new land-based community project she had set up with her partner Martin and friends Vicky and Hannah, along with a fantastic troupe of volunteers, I jumped at the chance.
As soon as I got to look round the site, I knew it felt right.
This group has created a beautiful place full of exciting opportunity and potential.
We quickly began hatching a plan together - for a nature-inspired yoga and art day. Rewilding yoga and mindfulness in the morning, a delicious lunch created by Martin, and a creative art nature workshop in the afternoon.
And it all came together in the most fantastic way last Sunday!
A wonderful group of beautiful souls came together, starting with a hot drink and a chat.
Then some playful, dynamic yoga to warm us up, shake off tension, get grounded to the earth and rediscover a variety of ways of moving and relating to the ground.
We finished with a guided meditation on our interconnectedness with nature, down in the woods by the stream. It was a big hit!
Meanwhile, Martin had created a delicious hot vegetarian lunch for us. Miso soup starter, veggie curry made with vegetables grown at Wild Acres, with spinach pakoras, followed by oaty apple pudding. Yummm!!
