Participant on Questing With Fire 2022
A really deep and beautiful experience which has brought me finally into a more intimate connection and understanding with nature, the elements and in particular the guidance and wisdom of fire. It was and still is such a powerful journey with practical fire skills and also on a deeper journey of personal initiation as the magic and lessons continue to reveal themselves and unfold. A powerful way to be in nature and to have what you need reflected back to you as opposed to what you think you may want. A deep, enriching and transformation experience held in a safe, loving and beautiful way. Thank you to my fellow questers and the team.
Participant on The Forager's Journey 2022
"The course totally exceeded my expectations. I was expecting to learn about plants, but over and above this the depth of knowledge of the facilitators was mind blowing. The most amazing things was how Leonie and Sophie held the space. We all came away wanting every day to be like this."

By far the most powerful process of my life. My words don't do justice to the experience. So much learned and still to process. I can say with confidence I am a not the same person I was when I started this journey. I am wiser, stronger, more hopeful. I want to sing more. I am more connected. I am more aware and I am so grateful. Thank you for the opportunity and I can't wait to do more.

Foraging Course Participant
We learnt a lot and has opened our eyes to the value of even the most common plants and inspired us to make some of the delicious food you introduced us too. We've been collecting hawthorn flowers, Garlic mustard leaves and cleavers today and now we know what we can do with them. We also appreciated the links with folklore and history and found your passionate and knowledgeable approach to it all very engaging including the fire making and cooking over the fire."
