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

With Alice Rose Betony

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.

I wanted to thank you for organising a truly special day. I have been thinking about it all day and in my dog walks have been trying to identify edible greens 😉 What a great character your herbalist Alice is! Thanks again. It was wonderful and it made a difference! Gracia, North London, Oct 2020

The World-Famous Wim Hof Method (Scotland Nov & Dec 2020)

With The Life Adventure

We’ve teamed up with the incredible Alladale Wilderness Reserve and the world famous Wim Hof (a.k.a. The Ice Man) to offer this 2, 4 or 7 night retreat in Scotland.  These are the only dates, and the only location this year that Wim Hof will be offered in the UK. The method is based on three pillars: cold therapy, breathing and commitment. Mastering these pillars and learning how to combine them, will result in a multitude of benefits, such as increased energy and focus, enhanced mental and physical performance, sleeping soundly, greater cold tolerance and a creative mind.

Alladale Wilderness Reserve is the place to learn all about this method, and you will not find anything like it anywhere in the United Kingdom. Either through a 3 day fundamentals workshop, a 5 day WHM adventure, or a very challenging 8 day retreat, you will experience something unlike anything you have done before!

Find your Inner Fire with the help of certified WHM instructor Allan Brownlie. This Edinburgh-based Scot will guide you through the process of optimizing body and mind, using cold exposure to practice breathing techniques and change your mind set. He will also teach you how to implement these techniques into your daily routine.

Deanich Lodge, one of the most remote buildings in Scotland, will be our base for all events. Deanich is the perfect spot for a true off the grid experience with an inward focus. Located 7 miles from Alladale Lodge, the bunkhouse’s setting is absolutely stunning and will help you to disconnect from the hustle and bustle of everyday life.

You will learn:

– How to be the manager of your energy

– How to feel energised and full of life within minutes

– How to boost your body’s alkalinity for super fast recovery

– How to lower your heart rate, banish stress, and feel more relaxed

– How to get rid of physical blockages

Learn more about the WHM and its creator through a series of videos here.

Includes all meals, accommodation and activities. We can also flights or transfers to the lodge if you require them.
