Ancestral Movement Summer Retreat - NSW AUSTRALIA, Jan 2019

Another one for the Aussie crew:

JANUARY 19-27th. Eight days of camping in the beautiful forest in the Araluen valley, southeast NSW, next to the Deua river and Deua national park. A bit of time out to come back home to our bodies, to sink back into the landscape, learn all sorts of amazing physical and practical skills, meditate and maybe think a little bit about how we all got here and what we want to do with our lives.

As always we will have a basic schedule two or three full movement sessions together every day, as well as a 2-3 hour wilderness skills, arts and crafts session every afternoon, and some night time activities as well. Evolutionary movements, breathing and pranayama, jungle gym practice, capoeira parkour contact improv tai chi wrestling climbing tumbling balancing rock lifting juggling strength training injury rehabilitation acrobatics massage internal organ work martial arts meditation qigong and so forth will all be happening, and in the craft space and bushcraft times there'll be wood carving, weaving, ceramics, tracking, making and throwing spears, archery, learning and finding edible and medicinal plants, fire-by-friction, making paints and dyes with plants clay rocks and ash, maybe some hide tanning or leather working, knife sharpening and safe effective knife usage workshops, wood chopping (lots of wood chopping) and all sorts of nature awareness activities.

Yes we really do do a lot of activities. But also everything is optional, there is plenty of time for rest, a little retreat library with lots of amazing books, hammocks, beautiful nature to explore and walk in, various activities of different intensities happening daily, and a general vibe of encouragement for doing things at your own pace. There's also a beautiful river to swim in and a couple of bathtubs next to the river which we can light fires under, which is nice.

Cost is $1200 (this does not include food). $900 for regulars or concessions, and again there will be several half-price ($600) spaces available for volunteers. Further concessions are available by negotiation for people who really need them, and also payment plans are totally fine for people who need to pay in instalments over time.

$400 deposits are required to save a spot. Numbers are strictly limited, and the last few have all booked out quite quickly and I had to turn a bunch of people away which was a bit sad, so don't leave it to the last minute if you really want to come.

Great. For further enquiries or to book a spot please email me (Simon) at [email protected], and of course you can check out stuff on my website:
