TESTIMONIALS

 

David

Jen   Friday was only the night before yesterday but I feel like its been almost a week or 2 weeks that we have been here. I dont think i can sum up my experience very easily, but to shorten it as much as I can, think the name rewilding is very appropriate. I feel like I have grounded myself back into nature and had the opportunity to be myself and be completely open with a group of amazing people. No judgement, no expectations, we have been really silly, we have played silly buggers and I really feel that all of that has helped me to feel more solid in myself.  I am connected to nature anyway, but with daily life, we dont get the opportunity to absorb into it. Having something like this is very accesible, starting on the Friday and ending on the Sunday afternoon is really accesible for someone who has a busy lifestyle but doesnt have the daily opportunity to plug into nature. Tim and Ilma have really given us the space to do that this weekend.  I really enjoyed the wolf-loping, i felt like such a child, being able to be yourself. The wolf-loping was heaps of fun, and really expressive and really made you feel like part of a pack. If you didnt pass the message on to the wolf lope pack behind you, the message would be diluted on the way. I learnt a lot about communication.  I have never done a solo before, being able to spend the morning by myself (and the animals!) was really really special and will be remembered for a long time. I learnt some good techniques for cooking on the open fire! We have had such lovely food, cooked on the open fire. It really excites me to do bring this into my own life and bring a fire pit into my home, and to share with my friends and family.  I would defintiely recommend this retreat to other people, I feel its fundamental for a lot of people to reconnect. I think most people dont realise that they need to reconnect becuase we get to bubbled up with our daily lives and being the business side of ourselves, its easy to get lost. I would definitely recommend 100%!

Linda   The weekend was absoultely incredible. It has been quite profound. I have always felt connected to nature but I think that through the connection of the people in the circle that I have met as well as Tim and Ilma, and what each person has brought to the circle as well has been amazing and I definitely feel more connected to nature after this weekend.  I have loved all of the acitivites this weekend, Qigong, feeling the trees, feeling the ground beneath my feet, gave me a connection to the earth. I feel that through the acitivites  (this weekend) , I now have a lot of hope.  Being on your own outdoors with certain guidelines and listening, the earth has a lot to say and it is ready to talk now. I learnt a lot of things that were quite new, not just in the tools that I was given, but in myself. There is a sense of peace that I think i found in a solo that I havent felt before , its like a seed that is growing, its not finished yet but its gathering momentum! Listening to everyone elses stories  (of the solo)  and truly listening to each experience that everyone else is going through and feeding back their words to them, that was really deep for me. You hear it, you feel it, you taste it, you smell it.  I would definitely recommend this retreat, i am going to be recomending this retreat to every single person I meet. it is not just a retreat to nurture yourself, it is a retreat that I feel is extremely urgent. It is a retreat that is to feel connection to others and the earth and we are all missing that. It is not just soul connection, or a solo or connecting with nature or connecting with others, there is something much deeper happening here and I feel like have been introduced again to the earth. Everybody needs to come, and not just grownups, but youngsters and teenagers need to come.

Ed  The activities were very rich and had very clearly explained methods and outcomes. Food, water, personal facilities and care of the group was wonderful. The camping area was very good, and we had everything we needed. The content of the weekend was very deep, but accessible. I came away thinking about all the wonderful possibilities you have with the site at Yurtworks and that made me very excited for you and everyone who will attend in the future.

Sarah   I enjoyed the weekend immensely. It is still resonating deeply. I feel calmer and more patient since. There is so much richness in this kind of experience. Just layers and layers of meaningfulness. I really think it is eternally good for us to keep doing it. My resistance is dissolved and I feel flow easier
