Autumn Foraging And Wild Medicine Workshop 9th October 2021 East Sussex

With Alice Rose Betony

Just to tell you how much I enjoyed your foraging course at the weekend. I learnt so much and the food was absolutely delicious. I have already recommended the Autumn course to two friends and have been inspired to find out more for myself too. Thank you for organising, it was really brilliant.

Helen, who took part in the Spring 21 Foraging & Wild Medicine workshop 

Join us for this socially-distanced Autumn Foraging And Wild Medicine Workshop where we’ll be gathering and processing of plants for food and medicine. This 5 hour outdoor session, run by our expert forager and herbalist Alice Bettany, will be the best day out you’ve ever had! It is designed to introduce you to a wide variety of plants that have been used by our ancestors for healing, nourishment and enjoyment. We’ll explore the cycle of autumn looking at the abundance of berries available to us at this time of year and make the most of time together focusing on gaining an understanding of the qualities of each season whilst using all our senses to help experience the properties of the plants we are working with and will involve making a variety of foods and medicines together around the campfire in the afternoon.

This foraging and wild medicine workshop is open to anyone who’d like to learn more about wild nutrition and herbalism and in the process you will gain confidence and understanding on how to identify plants in their different habitat. You’ll also learn how to gather respectfully and sustainably and to participate directly in the different processing methods of the plants in their seasons to turn them into food and medicine. It’s a truly beautiful, memorable and grounding experience which we can personally highly recommend.

Here’s what we got up to on our Autumn Foraging And Wild Medicine Day in October 2020.

Here’s how we work on the day, gathering plants and berries for our campfire feast.

A selection of herbal teas and hot water will be provided and of course we will make some fresh herb brews along the way. We’ll also get to try all our produce around the campfire, which is a highlight, in our opinion, of this experience.

Please arrive 15 minutes early to allow time to meet and greet. Please bring suitable footwear for walking on farmland, warm clothes (even if it is sunny) and wet weather gear just in case. Please bring a notepad and pen, maybe a camera to help you remember the plants, and a basket for foraged goods.

No previous experience is necessary for this workshop, but as well as having an incredibly enjoyable few hours away from the worries of the world. What you will experience is:

  • The opportunity to learn ways to tune in to your senses
  • A chance to get to know plants using all of your senses
  • Meet and identify lots of wild, abundant, local plants that you can eat

The location is right near the National Trust’s Sheffield Park, Uckfield, East Sussex.

We begin at 10am and finish at 3pm.

Shinrin-yoku (Forest Bathing) Sat 20th November 2021

With Justine Clement
A Weekly small group Forest Bathing experience in Surrey & Kent

Saturday 20th November 9.30am-12pm, Nower Wood, Surrey

Forest bathing is scientifically proven to improve health. Countless Japanese studies have revealed how it boosts immune systems, reduces stress hormones, enhances mental wellness and bolsters brain health. It can provide emotional healing, decrease blood pressure, improve general sleep-wake cycles, improve relationship skills, reduces stress and reduce aggression.

These are gentle introductions to forest bathing including sensory and meditative exercises. We take time to explore our woodland landscape, tuning in to our micro and macro awareness of nature and noticing how it communicates with us. The session is 2.5 hours and takes place at the Surrey Wildlife Trust’s wildlife reserve Nower Wood. See here for details on the location https://www.surreywildlifetrust.org/nature-reserves/nower-wood-educational-nature-reserve

Wellbeing in a Post Covid World Masterclass Series for Leaders (18 hours over 6 weeks)

With Anni Hood

“Wellbeing culture is the oxygen of the Covid and post pandemic era”

 Who is this for?

Pro- active leaders in a post-Covid world. You recognise the need for business agility and responsive strategy. You need practical knowledge to be able to achieve business success, compliance, resilience and employee duty of care. This Masterclass Series will give you and your company the edge on wellbeing insight, intelligence and solutions.

You are invited to join a progressive, cross-industry gathering of change-makers and game-changers, all eager to drive the value of human wellbeing throughout business and society by placing as much value on people centric culture as on fiscal success – this Masterclass Series will show you how.

Context

Wellbeing is no longer a trend, it is a deepening culture that is being increasingly interwoven through business, government, society and lifestyle.  Wellbeing as a priority (along with big tech, policy maker attention and concern for the planet) has become a pandemic winner. That doesn’t just mean higher sales in personal wellbeing related products, it means a deeper more meaningful integration of human and planetary health into myriad aspects of daily work, life and play. This (r)evolution relates to the fundamentals of how we do things – in systems, structure and processes, how problems are diminished, effective solutions delivered and responsive ethos integrated.

What is it?

A six week participative masterclass series designed as a roadmap for re-imagining sustainable business and living with core human values at the centre.   The series will provide a framework as well as bespoke formulas offering insight, intelligence and joined up knowledge that will empower delegates to innovate, recalibrate and potentially transform their contribution to the ‘new normal’; through their work, leadership, community and most valuable of all, through their own personal consciousness.

Contents

This six week series provides a rich seam of joined up intelligence that outlines how businesses, government, leadership, society and individuals can find practical and focused routes to sustainable success.

No matter what industry you are a part of, valuing and prioritising wellbeing as a fundamental weave through your brand, operations and delivery is as necessary as the air you breathe.   That means more conscious leadership, reacting to new consumer priorities, it means awareness of employee expectations, social value as a given, technology collaborations for scale and efficiency, policies that reflect societal needs and mental health as a primary focus.

Included
  • 60 mins 121 consultation for each delegate
  • 12-18 hrs of expert insight, discussion and coaching
  • Week to week support and guidance as necessary
  • Access to our high calibre network for introductions, products, skills and specialist support
Content Summary

Week One – Defining business priorities and the shift in consumer habits and expectations – The kick-off week will outline the fundamental shifts relative to a more wellbeing led, sustainable future; for business, society and individuals– personalisation is winning over privacy.

Week Two – Policy maker attention, Social Innovation, Impact and Value – Week two will share and discuss some of the grassroot initiatives being adopted by companies and governments, why progress matters and how far the value of social innovation is reaching.

Week Three – Conscious leadership; what it means, why it matters, where to begin? The contents of this week is critical both on a personal level as well as for young and seasoned leaders alike. It amounts to successful growth within business, the economy and cohesive society.

Week Four – ‘Consensual’ employment contracts, supply chain value and financial wellbeing This week will include sample contracts as an archetype for change and how the fundamental differences are taking shape as both expected evolution and Covid responsive.

Week Five – Technology – “the future of wellbeing will be driven by tech but defined by humanity” Technology integration is critical to the scaling and accessibility of wellness services and whole person wellbeing for myriad reasons. This week will reflect on the prominence of tech growth in 2020 and map where it is heading.

Week Six – Loneliness, mental health, sustainable living and strategies for business success The final week of the series is a focus on nourishing people, a roundup of the previous masterclass topics and wellbeing related strategies for business success.

Week One – Defining business priorities and the shift in consumer habits and expectations

The gamut of evolution and influence is a universal wave of increasing awareness: a constant reminder that the wellbeing of people and the health of the planet are inseparable. Further to that, a growing realisation that we’re at the tipping point of a re-set that means old structures, old thinking and dispassionate transactional attitudes are fading in the evolution of consciousness, self-care and a more focused purpose. Knowing what the ‘new guard’ looks like, also informs a shift in consumer habits and expectations. Understanding market resonance for product, communications, branding and company values is essential in this new world era.

The kick-off week will outline the fundamental shifts relative to a more wellbeing led, sustainable future; for business, society and individuals– personalisation is winning over privacy.

  • Macro to micro trends in wellness and wellbeing
  • Six cornerstones for reshaping business in the Covid era
  • What has changed in consumer habits and expectations?
Week Two – Policy maker attention, Social Innovation, Impact and Value

Beyond the consumer there are several other perspectives to consider, not least, the attention that wellbeing policy is garnering from governments globally. There is accelerated embrace of wellness culture that is being captured through social impact, innovation, value and people focused policy.

The New Zealand government have already put wellbeing specific policies in place and the ripple effect of President Elect Biden is likely to influence policies globally, including the UK.  For businesses this will mean awareness and considerations that are in tune with the infamous ‘new normal’.

Week two will share and discuss some of the grassroot initiatives being adopted by companies and governments, why progress matters and how far the value of social innovation is reaching.

  • The countries (and governments) leading in wellbeing culture integration
  • Why social impact and value matters and what it means as a contribution to business and community
  • What does a re-set look like for a ‘Covid’ and ‘Post Covid’ revolution?
Week Three – Conscious leadership; what it means, why it matters, where to begin?

There is demand for a new consciousness in business and leadership – extensive research by Fred Tsao and Chris Laszlo has shown how changing or rather, evolving a person’s consciousness unlocks their full potential to lead and enables them to thrive in times of uncertainty and instability. “A wider range of practices of connectedness hold the keys. The journey to higher consciousness changes people at a deep intuitive level, combining embodied experience with analytical-cognitive skill development.” Whether public or private sector, SMEs or multi-nationals, leadership calls for a greater sense of humanity – it begins with a greater connection with ourselves.”

The contents of this week is critical both on a personal level as well as for young and seasoned leaders alike. It amounts to successful growth within  business, the economy and cohesive society.

  • Establish what conscious leadership looks like and why it matters?
  • What does a path to a more evolved consciousness entail?
  • How can greater awareness affect not only individuals but culture, brand value and financial success?
Week Four – ‘Consensual’ employment contracts,  supply chain value and financial wellbeing

In ‘building back better’ after the pandemic, the need for the culture of companies to change significantly has several perspectives.  A new ‘consensual contract’ is expected between employer and worker. In short, what is required is a commitment from employers to safeguard and support the wellbeing of their people, and a commitment in return from employees to take personal responsibility for their own wellbeing relative to the performance of their role. The extension of respect and equity in supply chain terms and conditions matters as both a societal anchor and a brand stamp that reflects an inclusive spirit that recognises the importance of financial wellbeing and fairness for all.

This week will include sample contracts as an archetype for change and how the fundamental differences are taking shape as both expected evolution and Covid responsive.

  • Establish the expected shifts in employment contracts as a result of shifting employee expectations, WFH, mental health and wellness specific.
  • How does end-to-end wellbeing become integrated within companies committed to authentic wellbeing culture?
  • How and why financial wellbeing will become a more significant focus in the years ahead.
Week Five – Technology – “the future of wellbeing will be driven by tech but defined by humanity”

A pandemic winner – from online meeting platforms to managing desk occupancy in offices, using biometrics, online exercise, shopping, education, the list is endless, every single industry has been forced to integrate (and embrace) digital solution as extensively as they’re able – this is unlikely to diminish.  Technology is with us to serve and affirm humanity, it is not its antagonist. Technology is not only a route for driving sales but a way to build relationships, loyalty and longer term spend. From a physical and mental health perspective, epigenetics, bio-metric wearables, mindfulness – the marriage and the potential of wellbeing and technology is boundless. The Personal Data Economy is a growth area to watch. Recent research from McKinsey suggests personalisation is trumping privacy as a priority to consumers – the correct collaborations and partnerships to create secure infrastructure will be critical to optimise advantage whilst protecting customers.

Technology integration is critical to the scaling and accessibility of wellness services and whole person wellbeing for myriad reasons. This week will reflect on the prominence of tech growth in 2020 and map where it is heading. 

  • Establish how and what technology has surged forward in the last 12 months?
  • The Personal Data Economy – what is it and why does it matter to your business?
  • What tech products are set to impact and possibly revolutionise our busy, stressful lives as well as reshaping business.
Week Six – Loneliness, mental health, sustainable living and strategies for business success

Living life in optimised health goes beyond what we eat and how much we exercise. Feeling connected to others, contributing to a community, being able to ask for support and feeling heard, are all significant contributors to a sustainable life. The reality for millions of people today is an existence that is still far from whole person wellbeing. The support networks that are now available for those with mental health challenges are much improved from a few short years ago but there are still significant gaps. A culture that nurtures and nourishes is a one that flows through work, life and play. The nature of Covid-19 has meant enforced isolation, financial pressures and for some, the removal of hope for the future. Loneliness infects our entire world view and especially our sense of wellbeing with respect to the world around us. A King’s College study asked 2000 eighteen-year-olds and their siblings to describe their neighbourhoods; the more isolated siblings perceived it as “less friendly, less cohesive and less trustworthy” than their more socially connected brother or sister.  Infrastructure in communities and through employers means a lifeline to many but what does it look like? Where are the gaps?

The final week of the series is a focus on nourishing people, a roundup of the previous masterclass topics and wellbeing related strategies for business success.

  • How to prioritise mental and emotional health as a valuable and sustainable practice.
  • Examples of communities, governance and business that have achieved and retained impact through simple, viable measures.
  • Wellbeing anchored strategies for business success.

A fantastic and fun introduction to bushcraft for all. You’ll learn to build trust and communicate like the best expedition teams and figure out how not to get lost. You’ll learn about fire, shelter, water, wild foods, tracking and stalking. This is a brilliant two-hour session packed with games and activities throughout and is a great chance to learn the basics of bushcraft and survival skills.


BREATHWORK WORKSHOP 1HR 15 MINS

In our experience, every day should include this – a Conscious Connected Breath session, designed to detox and destress your system. This session will reconnect your mind and body and ultimately connect you back to yourself. It will either be held in the camp’s Giant Tipi, outdoors, or possibly even in the woods.

Breathwork is a safe and ancient practice, known for its immune system boosting abilities and self-healing powers, allowing you to come out of your busy mind and drop more deeply into your body. There are literally hundreds of breath practices to try and your stay at Kymani will allow you to experience one of these, known as Conscious Connected Breath. In this session you’ll discover a technique that will:

– Help you deal successfully with stress
– Help you sleep better
– Energise and uplift you
– Show you how to engage with your diaphragm – the breathing apparatus you were born with, but forgot about!
– Boost your immune system
– Help you release emotional tension and stress

*Please note Conscious Connected Breathwork is not suitable for those with glaucoma, pregnant (1st trimester only) epilepsy, detached retina, prior strokes or seizures, pior diagnosis by a health professional of bipolar disorder or schizophrenia, psychotic or borderline psychotic states.


SHINRIN-YOKU/FOREST BATHING EXPERIENCE 2HRS

Shinrin-yoku means bathing in the forest environment for wellbeing. Humans have spent 99.9% of their development in nature and 0.01% in urban environments. This is a gentle introduction to begin a new relationship with it, including sensory and meditative exercises. In this session we’ll show you how to tune into your micro and macro awareness of nature and notice how it communicates with us. You’ll experience ways to:

– Reduce your stress levels – research has found that leisurely forest walks yield a 12.4 per cent decrease in the stress hormone, cortisol, compared with urban walks. People report better moods and lower anxiety.

– Improve your mood – academics at Derby University have conducted a meta study of existing research which concludes that connecting to nature can be linked to happiness and mental wellbeing. Spending time in nature releases hormones that relate to the pursuit of joy, connecting to calm and avoiding threats.

– Free up your creativity – University of Utah research shows participants saw a 50% improvement in creative problem solving after time immersed in nature with all access to modern technology removed.

– Boost your immune system – trees and plants emit ‘phytoncides’ which we breathe in when we spend time in the forest. These have been proven to enhance the activity of Natural Killer cells that help our bodies fight disease.


SUNRISE YOGA 1HR

These one-hour morning or early evening yoga sessions are infused with mindfulness and personal development elements and are all suitable for beginners as well as more experienced yogis of all ages and abilities. Best done before breakfast at 8am or towards the end of the day when the sun is going down.

Our glamping partners have this as our number one priority – keeping all guests and staff safe. We and they will be paying constant and close attention to changes to government advice and reacting accordingly. Rest assured that every step will be taken to ensure everyone is protected.

How will things be socially distanced?

Each site will be laid out so that each bell tent will be far enough away to allow everyone to have plenty of space. The central unit is a vast tipi in which all furniture will be laid out with enough distance to keep you all socially distanced.

How will you keep everyone safe onsite?

Our glamping partners will conduct a deep clean of all sleeping and communal infrastructure in-between each booking so that you will arrive safe in the knowledge that it is a fully cleansed site. They will also have plenty of cleaning materials on site for you to continue wiping everything down in a safe way in areas where you will be mixing with others from your group.  Caterers and the onsite guest management team will all be fully COVID-compliant and wearing PPE gear at all times when in contact with you. We will ask you to submit the contact details of your entire party to the NHS Track and Test system prior to your departure.

What happens if the UK Government impose new restrictions?

If Coronavirus travel restrictions affect your booking, you’ll be able to move it either to later this year or have a pick from our summer availability next year.  So there’s no need to worry about losing your booking.
