Nurturing Your Wild Imagination

Nurturing Your Wild Imagination  6th - 9th September 2024

Held in the loving arms of the land and nature’s gifts, we will be calling on its wildness to nurture our imaginations and bring about reciprocal acts of creativity, connection and communication.

 

Through story and soundscape, hand crafting and dreaming, through movement, foraging, listening and stillness, we will explore aspects of our wildness and dream into what we want to revive, reclaim and reconnect to.

 

This 3-day retreat provides the perfect space in Nature to activate and nurture the wild imagination so that what exists there can begin to be felt in body, senses, heart and mind.

 

Spirals of Wellbeing is a magical place of creativity, nurture, nourishment, and healing held within a container of the lands’ beauty and love. Found nestled into a lush green valley, Spirals offers peace and tranquillity within 10 acres of woodland, meadow, stream, and wild pond, inviting you to lose yourself, find yourself, love yourself, to be all that you are and dream into what you wish to manifest.

Angie Lila Heart

Ali Roe is a multi-disciplinary creative who’s been self-employed in the visual arts since 2008 after leaving a professional career in search of a gentler and more meaningful life.

Her work now centres on nurturing the wild imagination.

She passionately believes that nature connectedness, creativity and enquiring into our psychospiritual experience using stimuli like stories, myth and folklore combine to help us reclaim a connection with the wilder aspects of self. From experience, Ali knows how this improves wellbeing and heightens a sense of meaning, fulfilment and belonging.

Ali’s creative practice includes abstract image making, art journalling, 3d fabrication and creative writing.

Angie is a Soulful Facilitator, holding space for women through their initiations and transformations for over 2 decades. She created Spirals of Wellbeing in magical West Wales, to offer a deeply healing, nurturing and nourishing space for women to re-connect to the true nature of who they are whilst on retreat or within 1:1 sessions and Wilding Women Circles. Angie works intuitively from a cauldron of energy healing, sound vibration, dance, chakra balancing and dream weaving. Her creativity is inspired by her deep connection to the land she lives on, her cyclical nature and co-creating with other magical women.

Angie has written 2 books in which she shares her transformative experiences as a mother (Take off Your Armour and Have a Cup of Tea)  and re-writing the Menopause narrative (Menopause Wisdoms - Women's Stories of Becoming Crone). Both books are published by The Unbound Press.
