THE YOGA GARDEN - KNEPP
WINTER SOLSTICE RETREAT FOR THE TREES
DAY RETREAT with Ana Marcela Wakeham
The Yoga Garden - Knepp Estate
DAY RETREAT - SATURDAY 21st December 2019
£50pp - 100% of profits from this retreat will be donated to Tree Sisters
(a global network of women working to restore our tropical forests).
Join us this Winter Solstice for a day retreat away from the consumerism often associated with this time of year. Bring your open hearts (and warm winter clothing) and spend some time in communion with the earth in the stark winter beauty of the Knepp estate. Ana Marcela Wakeham will take us on a journey through movement, embodied ecology, reflection and ceremony to a place where we can experience our wild selves in deeper harmony with nature.
This will be a day of celebration, supported by Mayan cacao ceremonies, embodied yoga practices, chants and dance. A day to come together to celebrate our time on this earth, honouring our ancestors and learning from the wisdom of our body.
Please bring a little vegetarian food to share at lunch time. We have partnered with Tree Sisters ( www.treesisters.org) and offer this retreat with the sole aim of raising funds for reforestation projects.

TreeSisters is a global network of women who donate monthly to fund the restoration of our tropical forests as a collective expression of planetary care
OUR VISION - We envision a world in which it is normal for everyone to protect and restore themselves and their world.
TreeSisters exists to elicit collective responsibility for planetary restoration at the grass roots level with a focus on women and tropical reforestation. We are growing a global network of women who donate monthly to fund the acceleration of tropical reforestation as an expression of collective planetary care.
We channel 80% of member donations to exemplary existing reforestation organisations in the tropics with whom we partner to restore ecosystems. The remaining 20% funds our behaviour change and consciousness shift work with women to reinstate feminine leadership, and normalise collective ownership of planetary restoration.
