These nature-based experiences are not to be missed! In places of extraordinary natural beauty, profound inspiration and important diversity, such as Tasmania’s Tarkine wilderness, FNQ’s Daintree region, SA’s Finder’s Ranges and WA’s Kimberley Wilderness, we adventure in deep community, exploring well beyond the surface. Immersed in visual beauty, fresh air, space and the web of life all around us, we open ourselves and our hearts, strengthening our connections with all beings and the spirit of the country.
To heal our individual and cultural sense of isolation and separation from the natural world, Arne Naess, Emeritus Professor of Philosophy at Oslo University, suggests that we need community therapies ‘healing our relations to the widest community, that of all living beings’. By acknowledging our interconnectedness we invite the spontaneous healing of the psyche.
Deep Ecology, Healing Ecology and shamanic practices help us connect with different nature and earth energies that are easier to feel or sense in ancient ecosystems, the Eco-healing retreats are a way forward in these challenging times..

The greatest gift of space and time – to rediscover self; connect with the energy that nurtures. To lie in the safe embrace of deep-rooted forest. To breathe deep and remember I am part and always coupled with these trees, rocks, insects and animals. At times risky – but all new adventures are. To find childlike joy in the play of the breeze in the leaves. To have a profound conversation with the spirit of the myrtle beech giant. It is, and always will be, a gift to myself. – Cass
