A walk through an archway of trees encourages guests to leave their worries behind and embark on a journey of the senses like no other.
The session begins with meditation in which guests will have a chance to lay down their minds and imagine growing their own roots to become part of the forest, taking note of anything that captures their attention. Throughout the experience, participants will be guided through an exploration of taste, sense, movement and slowing down. The guides will encourage participants to focus on the art of reflection, immersing and connecting themselves more deeply with nature. Patterns and weather will be explored and then thoughts and feelings shared through sharing circles which are based on ancient values where there is no hierarchy nor judgement, leaving each person open to new thoughts and prospects.
Participants will see how nature becomes a metaphor for change. Emerging from the forest into the open space and light, there is a shifting of energy and appreciation.
The session closes with a tea ceremony where guests can reflect and enjoy their new lighter sense of wellbeing.

Going one step further, the estate recently launched their moon and star bathing package, encouraging guests to soak up the idyllic setting as they rest, reflect and reset amongst a star lit sky, leaving them not only deeply connected to Mother Earth but also themselves and each other. Available during the winter months when the night sky is more accessible.
