Personal Rewilding & Gaian Consciousness, a discussion with Rachel Corby
Explore how we can connect more deeply with this living Earth, through ourselves as part of the living Earth. Set off your own internal trophic cascade as you discover how to connect with Gaian consciousness, something you have always been part of but for most of us within this cultural setting, have not been raised to tune into and work intentionally with. Have the opportunity to share your perspective and experiences, to be witnessed and heard.
This subject is so important at this time of both increasing polarisation between people and accelerating the potentially catastrophic planetary crisis. Leave this discussion knowing that you are Earth walking on your own flesh, with an important role to play.

Medicine at your Feet with Hetty Nutbeem
This workshop will look at connecting with nature through the medicinal plants which grow all around us. Learning about the properties of four or five common plants in the UK and how they can help us, participants will learn how to use the plants and how to easily make your own medicine. You’ll then put your theory into practice, heading out on a walk around the estate to identify some of the plants.
Hetty has been attending Noisily for several years now, and it has remained her favourite event. Her passion for the festival inspired her to get involved in Mind Body and Soul, sharing her knowledge and talents through the mediums of circus skills and herbal medicine.
