October 2017

Friday 13th to Sunday 15th October – Growing through Uncertainty: A workshop guided by Alan Heeks, Jane Sanders and … the wood. How can we stay happy when there’s too much change? Are there ways to bounce back and thrive if everyday life and work is getting us down? The answer is cultivate yourself the way an organic gardener or forester tends their ecosystem, so you grow your own wellbeing by learning from nature. In this workshop we’ll explore these questions, with the natural ecosystem of this magical wood as our guide. For enquiries and bookings contact Charles: or 07737 892891. Read more here.
