New Year invites us to listen, to watch and receive, visioning a path and embodying a new beginning for the year to come. Designed to give space and time for you to slow down, reflect and renew, we will welcome the stillness and darkness of winter into our dreaming body and attune to the gifts of the season. With quiet time out on the land, creativity in workshops and warmth in community, we will use the dynamic processes of dance, ritual and art to honour, celebrate and re-create. Neil Pinnock will be you guide offering daily 5Rhythms workshops, Ritual Theatre and acts of transformation. Supported by the community and by the team you will be nourished with plenty of laughter, time in silence, stories by the fire, hearty food and good company. Where else would you prefer to be at this gateway to 2020?

"Neil holds a sacred space perfectly balanced between the reverent and irreverent. I am totally held by Neil, by the group and the 5 Rhythms, each time a transformative magic happens. It is an incredibly safe, nourishing space that I know I will return to again and again, going that bit deeper and into new realms of magic, every time.”
Pippa, Creative Practitioner
“Neil has an alchemical way of weaving magic with a solid psychotherapeutic holding. A great teacher and facilitator.
How lucky we are he's on his path, ensuring we become more and more of ourselves, in body, in heart, in spirit. A real gift.” � Samina Ali - Dance, Movement Psychotherapist.
The New Years workshop was sweaty, fun, challenging (in a good way), exhilarating and satisfying. Wildways takes me out of my urban comfort into woods, sun, rain, yurt and community. Neil is entirely at home in Wildways and the sense of ease that he has here communicates to all participants and creates a container for our experience. Why would I spend New year anywhere else?
'I've been to wildways several times on retreat with Neil, and each time have found it fun, deep, moving, and that it impacts my life in a lasting way. During one New Years retreat, struggling with childcare issues, the unconditional love and acceptance I found from the group, quite blew me away. It was an experience I don't often feel, and to have that, during a dance, and therefore taking it into my body as well, affected me, and moved me for months afterwards. Neil has an ability to hold a group of people in both tenderness and therapeutic skill and experience. And yet somehow manages to bring lightness and joy to it all - awesome stuff.
