Borne means to be carried. Fire will carry us through this workshop. Through a series of guided experiences, we will work with the essence of fire, touching on some of the possible ways we can work with this element and, in doing so, connect more deeply to the natural world.
We will explore the ancient art of building, creating and maintaining a fire, meditative tasting and wild cooking with firey herbs. We will also explore inner fire and felt responses to fire, in all its forms, whatever they may be.
All welcome, as the days draw in the Winter Solstice is upon us. A nutritious, warm vegan and gluten free lunch will be cooked over the fire and served.
We will be outdoors whatever the weather, with the trees and a parachute tarpaulin for shelter, so please come with multiple layers and waterproofs.
