Yogic dance is a practice of mindful movement that not only reconnects us to our physical, emotional, energetic and spiritual bodies but also connects us to nature and to the elements within and around us. The core root to this practice focuses on harmonising the flow of energy throughout the body with:
- Mindful movement
- Conscious Breath Work/ Pranayama
- Sound and voice work
- Guided Meditation
To be able to connect with nature it is important to be in nature so spending time alone to reflect, connect and find a vision or healing will be incorporated into the retreat. The medicine walk will have a specific intention for you to take out onto the spirit of the land and on your return there will be a space within which the community will witness your journey and story.
CEREMONY AND RITUAL
Ceremony has been used since the beginning of time in all cultures across the globe to mark honour and celebrate life, death, transitions, cycles and seasons. Through ceremony we connect to these vital moments and also honour and give thanks to the Earth, the Elements, Mother Nature and the landscape that holds us.
Ceremony and ritual creates a space within which we are able to share our stories together. Through the skills of deep listening applied within this space we strengthen our sense of compassion and understanding. A unified collective heart consciousness beautifully unfolds to reside within us and shine outwardly.:

Susie is a natural and organic skincare facilitator and owner and formulator of Alchemisty Organic Skincare. She is passionate about about using the natural and organic ingredients mother nature bestows upon us both for our skincare and our wellbeing. She has a line of Organic Vegan Soaps and Skincare. All her products are 100% Organic of natural origin, Cruelty Free Soaps, Balms and Bath products, no nasty chemicals and no animals hurt in the process. My products are totally free of palm oil, SLS, Parabens, Phthalates, Synthetic Colours and Fragrances or any of the long list of nasty chemicals found in many commercial cosmetic and beauty products including some of those labelled as organic. She holds workshops teaching how to make products yourself, safely at home, using wonderful organic vegetable oils and butters and pure essential oils for a fraction of the high street cost, making this kind of product available to everyone. She loves to enlighten and educate people about Organic skincare and reading and understanding the ingredients in their products before risking the largest organ in their body … their skin. Just as you care what you put inside your body, care about what you put on the outside.
Susie says, I have always had a passion for wonderful aromas and from a very young age was fascinated by the effect of aromas on our emotions and wellbeing. When I became pregnant whilst living in Amsterdam nearly 20 years ago, was when my life took a total turn towards natural ways to heal. When I first visited the midwife and asked her what pain relief was going to be offered to me and she said “the natural endorphins in your brain and Bach’s Rescue Remedy drops”. I was at first terrified but happily look back on my beautiful home births back in Amsterdam, the first on a house boat with just the afore mentioned Rescue Remedy drops, my breath, yoga and clutching a piece of Malachite and Moss Agate in each hand, our Golden Retriever, Groover by my side, my most amazing experience.
I decided to share my hobby for soap making some 6 years ago and Alchemisty was born, I then took a diploma in Organic Skincare Formulation and completed a Natural Skincare Teacher Training and started running my own workshops. I am also a gardener and my studies continue and will eternally with all the wealth or plants and their vast array of cures for our ills. Mother nature really does have a cure for all when used with good and true intention and we need to focus on this beautiful connection we share with all nature and the universe. A quote from my current studies The Matrix of Magic comes to mind “We are solar powered beings fuelled on the nectar of flowers” ♥ ♥ ♥
