Nature Culture Weekend – Fyksesund, Norway 28-30 July 2023

Do you long to deepen your connections to the world around you, exploring the precious mysteries and stories of life all around, awakening your curiosity and wonder…

How can we create a culture that supports that deep nature connection for ourselves, our friends and our families? Can we re-awaken the ‘village’ to help us to recognise and unlock our gifts, and our appreciation of nature, ourselves and each other?

In this experiential, connective weekend, we gently introduce the wisdom of the 8 Shields – a powerful model of nature connection and culture creation, that is inspired by the principles and practices observed in healthy, earth-based cultures around the world.

Sit in the woods and watch the birds, play exciting games that open your senses and your sense of empathy, explore the beautiful land and all its life, share stories and songs with others around the fire, and be held in a community of nature-based culture.

The weekend is artfully convened and facilitated by Peter Cow and Rebecca Card alongside a team of inspiring cultural healing and nature connection facilitators.

“The group were so utterly welcoming and understanding, there was a real kindness and openness to me as a newcomer. The group holds a knowledge, acceptance and honouring of all that life brings – pain and joy, laughter and tears, excitement and boredom and a sense that all of that is valued, necessary and part of the whole. The bravery I saw there in honouring the wholeness of life was breath-taking.”

“So much has been thought about, so much considered, a real, old and full system for a whole life! What a laugh, what a fantastic deep and wholesome weekend, life feels fuller and brighter knowing people are out there holding this space,  that this sacred fire is still burning gently. I want more of this in my life!”

“I wish every person, every child had this experience, regularly. Thank you.”
