The Event

This New year @ Wildways there is a feast of seasonal goodness to nurture your wild soul. As well as daily 5Rhythms dances and a warm cosy community of like minded folk, we will look back at the old year and celebrate the new. We will gather around fires to share food, tales and laughter; take time out in the winter landscape of private woodlands to reflect and drop down into ritual spaces as we gather the fruits of the year past and create space for dreaming into the next season to come. Neil and friends are offering a deeply held magical journey woven with sound baths, live music, ritual theatre, cacao ceremony, saunas, walks in winter landscapes and more.

There will be time to be, time to integrate, time to renew. I hope you can join us.

The Team
Neil will be joined by Auric Fields (Phi Yaan-Zek), playing live on New Year’s Eve with wonderful expansive, funky, trippy and groovy music, together with a cacao ceremony and followed by a deep relaxing sound bath with Alina Sygiel to welcome in the New Year. Playing gongs, Himalayan Bowls, Frame Drum, Vast Pan, Koshi and percussion instruments produces sound that lulls you into an Altered State of Consciousness (similar to deep meditation) inducing a deep, restorative relaxation.

5Rhythms teacher in training Louise LaTerra will also be supporting us with more 5Rhythms dance and music to move to.

Neil will offer his new year specialty and guide us through the transition of the year with some ritual theatre and nature magic.

What others say about last year's retreat

“I just wanted to thank you for such a memorable and moving retreat.  I enjoyed all aspects of my time at WildWays. It is certainly a special place, the dance, the music was exceptional, being outside was joyous. I felt welcomed into the group and I feel that I went through a complete process over the weekend.   I found your imagery through the dance so helpful and that has stayed with me, as did many of the activities we did as a group. I couldn’t have wished for a more perfect end of last year and beginning of the new year. I will certainly look at joining another retreat in the future.” Jan

"The Turning retreat with Neil gave me the opportunity to connect. As well as the excellent music, the additional activities Neil prepared took me on a powerful journey to help me heal, for which I'm very grateful. I went with only an expectation to dance and commune with others but came away having literally made a "turning" in my life. Thank you Neil."
