This unique 3 day solstice programme utilises ancestral knowledge and wisdom to heal mind, body and spirit. It draws upon the ancient feminine practice known as Chigwa. This practice re-ignites our ancient story and guides our inner divinity. We seek to reconnect and realign with our spirit guide and our purpose.


The Chigwa practice focuses on movement of energy around the body. By engaging in a sequence of simple yet effective moves and sacred chants we can unblock and clear pathways, encouraging good health and spiritual well-being. Tasty nutritious meals will be provided, making this an holistic experience.


Join kindred sister spirits in a cosy cottage in the English countryside,

weaving healing tales of power and magic.


including guidance in Chigwa, tree and walking meditations, sacred chants,

food and accommodation. 



Deposits and payment plans acceptable
