2nd - 3rd May 2020
During this global pause there is something emerging through us: without the usual distractions which come with Western living we can feel the stirrings of the desire to create.
Yet at the same time we are collectively and individually occupying unchartered territory right now as every day we are having to deal with situations, emotions and thoughts which we have never had to face before, such as:
“Creativity is a revolutionary action. It’s about using human energy to shape things into form, to revision the world.” Sharon Blackie
This Space to Emerge online retreat has been born out of a regular woodland micro-festival we hold in the bluebell woods on the banks of Lake Windermere in Cumbria.
We aren’t able to be there this year and so we have decided to bring the essence of what that weekend is about online.
This is a blend of community time, down time, nature time and creativity time. Even if you feel you aren’t creative come along, you almost certainly will surprise yourself.
Why learn from us?
Between us, Jason and Nicola, we have trodden this path for many decades and have at times denied our creative potential, worked through numerous blocks and have first-hand experience of the difference unleashing our creativity can have on our lives.
We have moved from being in stagnant and unfulfilling work, to fully embracing our creativity and discovering the true depths of ourselves and the joy that this can bring us.
Specifically, during this lock down period, we have moved through any creative blocks which have arisen to a place where our creativity feeds and nurtures us in unimaginable ways. Our creative ventures are proving to provide a much-needed focus away from simply just coping and enduring the lockdown, to thriving in it despite the uncertainties in our world and the anxiety that this brings with it.
Because of this we are excited and passionate about working with others to master their own creative potential during these unprecedented times.
Working with the crafts of our ancient ancestors that are thousands of years old, we will link into a time when creativity was not only celebrated, it was recognised as a key to survival.
“You have pitched all the circles and get-togethers in precisely the way that I can respond, follow, absorb and it has fed my soul as well as encouraging me on my journeying.”
Hils // Online Attendee
“Your teachings have helped me greatly, with creativity and having something REAL to focus on.”
Ty // Online Attendee
“You provide a lovely gentle safe space for me to receive, to help top me up, I appreciate the connection with like minds, the inspiration, the chance to learn more, to share.”
Emma // Online Attendee
“Your online courses get me to think, feel and be in touch with other ways. Other ways being poetry: using the words to feel the depth of my own emotions, and creating curiosity and confidence to try something new, something different.”
Joanne // Online Attendee
This is an online retreat running over two days from Saturday morning to Sunday evening
Experience a regular creative practice that will lead to a more expansive life, a deeper connection with your true self and a real sense of achievement.
Yes, it will mean investing a little of your time and money and take your away from your everyday responsibilities. It may even feel overindulgent and raise a conflict inside you about whether you can justify giving yourself this space and investment.
But in this great global pause there is no time like the present to reach out and get a little help to give you what you most need.
Once you engage in your creativity, the momentum will drive you forward to find a new way of coping right now and ultimately lead to making changes in your life beyond the pandemic outbreak.
Maybe you are thinking that you don’t need more creativity in your life. But creativity is the key to finding freedom.
Our ancestors recognised the benefit, and they were brilliant at surviving. If they weren’t, we wouldn’t be here now. Their creative endeavours hold a jaw dropping beauty and they held time spent on creativity in the highest regard.
Something happens deep within us when we are in nature. When we still ourselves amongst beauty we can hear ourselves more clearly. We come home. During this weekend we will drop into nature time together and demonstrate that it is possible to do this without even leaving home.
The ancient techniques of shamanic journeying and deep nature connection have been used by humanity for tens of thousands of years. They are incredible, easy ways to access deep universal wisdom. Why leave it to your limited conscious mind to come up with all the answers!
Experience a regular creative practice that will lead you to a more spacious life, a deep connection to your true self, and a real sense of achievement.
Share soulful time with like-minded travellers who, like you, are seeking ways to become more expansive in a different world.
Without a clear intention we don’t know where we will be heading, so by deciding this and putting it out there in ceremony, we give ourselves the best chance of realising our dreams.

We strongly recommend booking sooner rather than later as there are limited places available.
If any of these intentions fit with you, we believe you are ready for this experience:
We will be recording all of the live sessions and so if you miss any you will have the replay.
We have also designed the retreat so that you can bob in and out should you be called away for any reason and still get benefit from the weekend.
Yes, this will be recorded, and you will have ongoing access to the replays.
We are pretty sure it is! Although this is the first time we have tried it, we have run retreats out to the national parks of the northwest of England for many years and numerous online courses as well.
This is a case of combining the two together and we have felt our way into this and given it a lot of thought.
Our belief is that with the combination of enough space for refection and enough guidance through gentle connections online we can come together as a meeting of minds in this way online and immerse into our creative selves over the weekend.
And Beltane is the perfect time to give this a go!
This online retreat is ideal for folk of all levels of shamanic experience.
Whether you are new to shamanism or already have a regular spiritual practice you will find the retreat to be an interesting, thought provoking and hopefully life-changing experience.
We have designed this so that you have each afternoon free to spend outdoors and we will set you the focus for this time.
If you aren’t able to go away from your home, you can carry out the activities in your garden or back yard.
If you live in a flat and aren’t able to go outside, we have a workaround for you too so you can drop into nature time whilst still being indoors.
There are limited spaces on this online retreat and we expect it will be popular so we advise booking soon to avoid being disappointed.
“Look deep into nature, and then you will understand everything better.”
