Homecoming – Three keys to free the heart when navigating challenging relationships with Summer Forest & Esther Nicklin

SUNDAY | 915 – 1045 | UNITE

When we have a breakdown in communication with someone in our lives be it a partner, friend, family member or colleague it hurts. This can be incredibly disempowering especially when we have no control over the other’s response and feel stuck in our own stories. Or perhaps a relationship has ended, but the pain of feeling unresolved lives on. 

When we shut down our hearts in one area of our lives, we often find ourselves blocked and shut down in others. How can we get “unstuck” and open our hearts again? How can we return to peace and empowerment within ourselves?

In our time together we will discuss three essential keys to free our hearts in times of difficulty including the not-so-secret (and not so easy) key to peace: surrender. We will then do a short guided visualization and meditation practice to move toward healing the challenging relationships in our lives. And finally, we will close with a Reiki healing from Esther Nicklin to send us off grounded and supported. 

The ideas in this workshop draw philosophically from three rich streams: the concept of surrender in the Bhagavad Gita, the Tibetan Buddhist practice of Tonglen and the spiritual text A Course In Miracles. 

Free your heart. Let love win. Take a stand for peace.

Led by Summer Forest. Featuring support from Reiki Master Esther Nicklin.

Inner Child Flow Hoop

Inner Child Flow Hoop Workshop with Adam & Lauren

SATURDAY | 19:30 – 21:00 | UNITE

We have been hooping and teaching hoop for 6 years and discovered that too often we get so stuck in learning the technical parts of the tricks that we forget about our flow. Freedom of expression and movement is such an important feeling and some of the best flow artists have thrived because of the way they move rather than having every trick technically perfect. We will use a range of exercises to let go & tune into our bodies natural flow whilst having a lot of fun and embodying the idea of play.

Grounding Ritual

Grounding Ritual with Charlie Cheeseman

FRIDAY | 9:00 – 10:30 | UNITE

There is a moment between landing at Noisily and the opening ceremony, a sacred pause. An opportunity to arrive in your body, to clear anything you don’t want to carry with you this weekend, so that you can give your full presence to the woods. 

This workshop is an embodied ritual, working with breathwork, movement, meditation and sound to calibrate to your centre before it all begins. 

Guided by Charlie, a certified breathwork facilitator, we’ll move through four stages:

Grounding: the stabilising energy of the earth element, anchoring and orienting the body, nervous system regulation.

Clearing: the transformative energy of the fire element, alchemising blocks and limiting beliefs.

Connecting: the expansive, communicative energy of the air element, feeling into the physical and subtle bodies, deepening connections.

Resourcing: the fluid and adaptive energy of the water element, healing and replenishing. Self care practices to support your mental and emotional wellbeing through the weekend.

We’ll intentionally turn towards the full spectrum of sensations, emotions, thoughts, and energies that arise within, welcoming our wholeness, our messiness, our weirdness and our aliveness!

After the workshop, for those who wish to, we’ll gather and weave into the main opening ceremony together for lift off.

Journey to Intimacy

Journey to Intimacy – a tantric workshop with Ian Young

SATURDAY | 15:30 – 17:00 | UNITE

In this workshop we will journey together towards connection and intimacy. This begins with active meditation to embody ourselves and then tuning into and understanding our own needs, wants and desires as well as our boundaries. We will then practice expressing these to others in a safe environment where we can be heard. And for genuine connection to happen we need to be able to express a no as well as a yes and also to be able to hear and receive a no and to be more accepting and comfortable with that. If we can say and hear a no then the yes becomes more trustworthy. We use practices from tantra to become more comfortable with more challenging experiences and perhaps more difficult emotions so that we can face more of life with more ease. The workshop will include the use of touch as this is one of the most powerful ways to connect with others but we will only use non-sexual touch. Touch is often lacking in our lives and can be a truly powerful way to be present and to truly feel oneself.


Foundations of Ayurveda

Foundations of Ayurveda: Identify your Dosha, with Chala Ayurveda

FRIDAY | 12:00 – 13:30 | UNITE

The roots of Ayurveda took hold in India 5000 years ago and continue to flourish in the modern age. The system incorporates mind, body, and spirit to establish abundant health. ‘Ayurveda’ can be translated to mean the science of life, with ‘Ayu’ meaning life and ‘Veda’ meaning science. 

Gemma and Sophie are passionate about sharing the wisdom of Ayurveda so that people may learn about themselves on a deeper level and use this knowledge to prevent ill health and flow with the cycles of nature.

During this workshop, you will learn the foundations of Ayurveda including the importance of the five elements, the six tastes, and the three doshic energies that govern life; vata, pitta and kapha. You will learn how to identify your own dosha but most importantly, why this isn’t fixed and changes as we move through the different seasons of life.

Come and dip your toes into this sea of ancient knowledge with us and leave feeling more connected to your inner truth of how to bring balance to your whole self.



Heart Activation

Heart Activation – Shamanic Breathwork Journey with Hazel Joanna

SATURDAY | 9:30 – 11:00 | UNITE | By donation

In this ceremony we will be calling upon Goddess Oshun (African Goddess of love and fresh waters) to activate divine love within our hearts.

The heart chakra is an important centre within our energetic system. It is here that we can old onto negative emotions such as anger, resentment and disappointment that stop us being able to fully open and express our hearts. Working with the breath is very powerful at shifting old energies and opening up this important juncture.

The session will begin with intention setting and a gentle bodily warm up using qigong and movement before beginning a practice of conscious connected circular breath where participants will be lying down. Throughout the session we will be using sounds to activate the chakras, along with breath retentions.

Benefits of Breathwork

-deep states of relaxation / bliss
-aha moments 
-strengthening of respiratory system 
-release old stories and stuck emotions 
-strengthen immune system.

It is Advisable to avoid eating an hour before and to avoid intoxicants before attending the session. If you have high blood pressure or a history of mental illness please inform the facilitator in advance.
