Event description
A 6 day retreat to heal, awaken and remember

About this event

Connect with Earth, Spirit and Soul

This Summer Solstice we are calling in all who yearn for a wild and awakening gathering to honour the transformative, creative and healing power of the Solstice and to celebrate together in connected community.

This gathering is a radical dance with traditions and practices that cleanse, nourish, enrich and deepen our experience with life for a profound shedding of old skins and empowered rebirth.

We will move through elemental wisdom, life’s seasons and aspects of the Self, rising each morning with somatic practices to awaken the language of the body, journeying through creative workshops, sacred ceremony and ritual into nourishing night time practices of rejuvenation and integration.

Nestled in the Dorset countryside with forest, meadow, a natural pool and a beautiful beach a short drive away, we will have the space to express, digest, grow and revive our deepest sense of joy and harmony with life.

This is a celebration of our existence, a prayer for our world and a dance with timeless union.

“The creativity and the strength that I was able to recharge in the circle of these fantastic people still has an effect on me today.”

— Katrin Jahns

“That retreat was one of the most magical journeys of my life. Veronica managed through her attentive and nurturing care and skills to create a safe container for all of us to connect deeply and explore our most vulnerable wounds with compassion and love. I can't recommend it enough.”

— Lilja Sif Þorsteinsdóttir

…….

Why we celebrate the Solstice

Our early ancestors held the Solstices of utmost importance. Both the Winter and Summer Solstice marks moments where the veil between this world and the ‘otherworld’ is the thinnest and where dances, ceremony and ritual can connect us with our ancestors, deities and cosmos. The Pagan festival of Litha celebrates the power of the sun god, where magic is thought to be its strongest - strengthening communion with spirit and soul. It is a time of abundance and creative activation, where we can come together and deepen our capacity for kinship with life.

…….

“Every single moment of that retreat made me go deeper and deeper into my heart. Remember. Reconnect. Unfold.”

— Zasha Patek

…….

“This retreat was definitely a powerful and transformative journey which took me to the unknown shoreside of my inner self. It felt like embodying a new flesh, taming new sensations, embracing new forms on a constant discovery or rediscovery of scents, visions as if the world was unveiling itself for the first time before my eyes. A metamorphosis full of promises, tears, laughs, smiles and an utterly rage for life that will remain etched in my heart and flesh for eternity.”

— Elisa Henny

About Rooted Healing

We seek to deepen human kinship with the living world and with the great mystery that runs through us. We do this through transformational gatherings in nature, cross-cultural wisdom exchange, workshops, interactive courses and a growing collection of community lead accessible resources, including our podcast - listen here.

We honour a path of ancestral remembrance where we recognise that we all possess an indigenous soul that longs for a deepened, more connected experience with life and a wondrous state of ‘otherness’. We facilitate, support and empower individual and collective shifts in consciousness that bring us back to our innate, most alive soul-aligned essence.
