Medicine Retreats

Medicine work is as old as homo sapiens but an increasing modern phenomenon is that of eco-grief: which might be defined as distressing feelings which spring from, or relate to, the current ecological and climate crisis. Learning how to live with experienced or anticipated ecological losses is something I am finding a way through for myself, and also for individuals approaching me about this issue. We too are nature, and many of us cannot not feel the grief for what is happening to our landscapes, our ecosystems, and many of our species. There is no doubt that wide ranging political, financial, social and community actions are required, but we can all take steps in one direction: with ourselves. This is where my efforts are focused: on what you need for yourself, to enable you to do the wider work required.


You can book time with me to work with your particular ‘medicine’. There are a number of ways in which this can happen: work outdoors is always powerful, especially here on the banks of the River Ouse and the local woods, hills and dales of North Yorkshire. We are on the edge of the North York Moors National Park here and close to the Yorkshire Dales National Park. However, there are ways to work within four walls, if you prefer to do that. (And when we are allowed to do that, under current Covid-19 restrictions)

Do make contact if you would like to know more.


I am available to facilitate small self-selected group retreats or personal development workshops with an eco-focus: contact for further information if you are interested.

Costs and Accommodation

As stated elsewhere on this website, I no longer charge for my time. I ask for travel expenses if I come to you, or your group, and dana is always acceptable, and supports my communication costs and voluntary work.
