Our visit to Springhead Trust April 2018

As the Wild Women team prepare for the 2018 Summer Retreat two of our most magical weavers visit the new site, exploring its watery mysteries and making plans for the magic yet to come. Find out what they experienced below…

Rozi and Boann’s Springhead Adventure!

The first sight that greeted us as we pulled in was a circling red kite, and soon, as we walked down from the car park, we were practically dusted by the wings of an encredible low-flying heron. ‘This is the right place’ we thought. and after touring the bedrooms and marinading in the atmosphere of some of the beautiful main rooms, we, at last, got to be graced by the gardens. ‘And it isn’t even Spring yet!’ we told ourselves, imagining leaf and full-bloom on top of the already spectacular surroundings…

I must be honest – by the time we reached the point where the springs emerge from the ground, the beauty and the sacredness and the care that it is tended with, all touched me to tears… Water from the ground. just abundantly pouring forth through mossy rock and fern. We ate a lunch in the sweet rotunda watching swans and ducks and imagining the music of the concert violinist family who lived there, and the sun even gifted us its warm light.

It was a beautiful day and we felt welcomed by the land there, but also very full of gratitude that it was part of our ‘work’ to visit and scope out that place on behalf of our Summer to come…. We cant wait to see you all there!

We are jumping up and down with pleasure to announce that The Wild Women’s Summer Retreat and all our work to support and celebrate women and women’s spaces has been featured in the March edition of In the Moment magazine.

The article features half a dozen all-women spaces, places and retreats and looks in-depth at the importance for women to reconnect with each other and the land in safe held environments.

The Wild Women’s Retreat is heralded as an inspirational and well organised adventure into this vital work… “Celebrate all that is incredible about being female with fellow Wild Women. Set in the very special Springhead estate, North Dorset, you will escape the humdrum of everyday life to a place of refuge, retreat and transformation.”

The Wild Women’s Autumn Gathering
‘Bringing the Dark Mother into the Light’

The Assembly Rooms of Glastonbury, High Street
11 November 2017, 10am – 5pm, £40 per person

This November, as the skies darken and the falling leaves and bitter winds of Samhain blow under our hems and hearths, come join the women of Wild Women Retreats and call the lightening to your fingers. For we are going to delve into our own darkness; to acknowledge our shadow, step into the underworld for a moment in sacred space and time; to dance the void and raise the awareness that ALL is balance. So we can emerge re-energised. To sing her song, drum her heartbeat, honour her existence and shine.

So SAVE THE DATE and be ready to light a black candle in honour of your own Dark Goddess and watch her flame dance.

There will be a three-hour break for supper between 5pm and 8pm, and a bar available in the evening. Food and accommodation will be your own responsibility but Glastonbury offers a wide variety of both.

After the amazing success of the last two Wild Women’s Summer Retreats, we are offering a Wild Women’s Winter Gathering in the heart of the sacred Isle of Avalon in Glastonbury. This will be a full day of wonderful, magical, wild delights and a chance for women to connect, re-connect and find out more about us.

If you’ve been to a Wild Women’s Retreat and loved it, have never been to one before and would like to know more, or only have the time for a weekend, we’d love to see you! We can promise you a beautiful, warm welcome, a chance for cuddles, fun and laughter as well as Wild Women’s ritual, sacred singing, workshops, a marketplace and the usual brand of mayhem and fun in the evening.

Wild Women Fund: A percentage of the ticket sales will support our work in a donation to the Wild Women’s Retreats Fund. The importance of making the retreats inclusive and available to those who may not be able to afford them is precious.

Wild Women Enterprise: We are passionate about supporting women’s enterprises and will be offering market stalls, and discounted tickets for stallholders. Stalls will cost £20 each with a £10 discount on the ticket price. Please reserve your stall with your ticket booking.
