The Descent

To the heart of the wild

The Descent is offered to those who have participated in The Journey and wish to deepen in their understanding of the unique offering they can make to the world.

Held in a beautiful Welsh valley, living close to the earth and off-grid, we follow the steps of those who walked this wild land thousands of years ago, connecting to something sacred and necessary, now as ever.

With the gift of some days of fasting, you return to your raw self.  Through extended time alone in nature and daily group practices of prayerful movement, voicework, breathwork and sitting in council around the fire, you unfold; deepening in appreciation of yourself as a part of, rather than separate from, nature.

“Do you long to be in the right place, at the right time, for all time?”

The ceremony of The Descent provides a tap root – a nourishing and fortifying connection to our source and an orientation for our future.

A quiet sense of confidence in myself and the slowly emerging recognition that I need to step up to the plate and stand up for what I believe in – do something with my inner power.
