A Lifestyle and Rejuvenation Retreat:

Coming September 2024!

Northampton, England

Coming September 2024

"Nourishing the life that feeds your soul."

-Esther Cohen

Centered on balanced nutrition, mindful eating, and steeped in ritual and connection, we will come together in the mystery and magic of the old English countryside to experience our human potential. We will explore the biological and metaphysical interconnectedness of our human nature and the raw environment. Through Wild Contemplation, song, dance, ceremony and the art of deep listening, we will embody resonance with the natural world.

We will gather to ignite the spark of vibrant living and cultivate wellness together in community. The cornerstone of this experience is the 5 day Autumn Food-As-Medicine retreat designed to clear inner stagnation and restore harmony in our ecosystem. Our invitation is to develop body sensing and awareness tools to establish sovereignty and return agency to you and your health journey. Experience food as much more than the raw fuel we eat to sustain our bodies. Everything is food. We eat all of life’s experiences to nourish our soul.

Through this process, we will work on old blueprints that have informed what our bodies crave, physically and emotionally. Rewriting these harmful narratives, we will rewire our neural pathways. As humans, we reach for comfort – developing addictions from a wounded place and we lose connection with what we truly need on a deeper level to be nourished. This program is designed to restore our somatic intelligence, our primal birth rite, so we may wholly thrive and connect to our soulful purpose.

“The invitation to health is where there is no distinction between living
and living the life your soul longs to live.”
~Esther Cohen
