We are currently setting up an educational outreach programme, aimed at groups and organisations in our local area who can benefit from the deeper contact with nature and other learning opportunities which Hazel Hill offers.

September 2 – 4: Finding yourself in the woods: a men’s weekend

This is an invitation to relax, renew and explore in the company of men, and the magical setting of this 70-acre wood.  The talents of the group and the wisdom of the wood offer a stage on which we can explore shared themes or personal situations as we want, through a range of approaches, and just being here.  In this very different setting, out on the land with a campfire, there’s scope to meet new aspects of yourself, find the subtler voices and the deeper melody, change an old story, play a new part, and hear the collective wisdom of the group.  Several Shakespeare plays use the forest as a place to find your true values, and this wood can help us explore male archetypes in the play of life.
