United Kingdom·March - April
Sound bath, breathwork and sauna.
This is a very special event in a very special location.VIEW DATES
Join us in the heart of Mother Nature where you connect to her and the nature spirits. Let yourself drop down - it’s time to fully let go, you’ll be in safe hands. We’ll take you on a powerful cacao, breath and sound journey. The breathwork will enhance the opportunity to detox, heal, repair and explore your own personal growth. All this while we fully immerse you in high vibrational sounds from the sacred gongs, bowls and drums. You’ll drift into a deeply meditative theta state. This is the place where you gain access into your subconscious mind, have mind blowing insights and literally reprogram patterns that no longer serve you. You will also enjoy the raw warmth of a wood fired Finnish sauna. The sauna is set up near a cleansing plunge pool looked over by a ancient oak tree. We are deep in the forest. There is no one else but us. If you love being in nature. If you love sauna. If you love bathing in sounds and the water. If you want to detox and heal. If you want to invest in your own self care, then you will absolutely love this. Please note the river dip is optional and at your own discretion and risk.
Safety and trust
We create a safe space for you to surrender, relax and feel into the experience.
You are in control of your experience. We take you slowly, gently and incrementally to a place which brings the most healing & growth. But you are always in control.
Inner and outer healing
Our intention is to connect you to the elements and lead you into your own growth and healing. When you work on the inner healing, then everything else will fall into place.
To help you in your wellbeing journey we have a team to guide you gently and offer assistance while you’re with us.
Daniel is experienced in hosting saunas and in guiding meditation and healing breathwork. He will guide you through the process, make sure you are safe and feeling comfortable within the experience.
Sam is a skilled musician and has been hosting our saunas throughout the summer and into the winter. He will make sure you are safe and comfortable. Sam loves a cold water dip- and has been known to stay in for 90 minutes in winter!!
Jill is a highly skilled sound healer and lovely to boot. She gives out an atmosphere of calm and makes me feel at ease. People feel more at peace with themselves and the world, after attending a sound bath session with Jill. The beautiful sounds she creates are powerful, magical and healing.
Have a look at our schedule below!
Pop Up Wild Sauna
We gather in the sauna. For the first round we take things gently. We slowly increase the heat. As your core temperature rises and your body starts to sweat , we then take a break to cool off, just outside or in the water. After a few minutes we then get back in the sauna. We increase the temperature a little more in the 2nd round and even more in the 3rd round. We are very careful to keep everyone safe and as comfortable as possible in the heat and cold. In the hour we fit in 3 rounds of sauna, interspersed with 2 breaks.
In between sauna rounds it is a good idea to cool off. To cool off you can either sit outside the sauna or you might like to take a cold water dip. We would advise going into the water gently, incrementally, so that your body can get used to it. Once you are in up to your waist, take a deep breath through your nose and as you exhale slowly through your mouth gently submerge your body so you are sitting on the floor of the river. The access is nice and easy. The benefits of the cold plunge are many! You go in the water at your own risk.
Cacao Ceremony in Nature
You are served the plant medicine and raw chocolate cacao. cacao helps you to soften and drop into a meditation state.
Experience a deeply meditative sound bath immersed within the sounds and the elements. Tibetan bowls and the beautiful tones of gongs, working in harmony to soothe, balance and restore your energy. The gongs vibrations impact the body and all its meridians. The sound releases blocks, reduces tension and stimulates circulation. Sound is so effective as it deeply influences our emotional bodies as well as our physical bodies.
During the sound bath, you will be going on a guided breathing experience, using the breath as a portal to go deep within yourself to explore the deepest aspect of Self, Spirit, and Universe
After the experience we gather around the fire for veggie, healthy grounding soup.
Soundbath. Breathwork. Sauna.
Be prepared for deep healing . Please note concessions are available if you cannot afford this. Please let me know.
A beautiful peaceful hidden secret
There are no words for how beautiful this location is
We are located deep in the woods. There is no noise. There is no light pollution. There are no other people. The air is clean. The water is clean. We are surrounded by forest and overlooked by an old oak tree. The plunge pool is a very short walk from the sauna down the river bank. The plunge pool is shoulder deep with low rain but gets deeper if there has been heavy rain. The plunge pool is safe with no underwater obstacles and an easy walk in. The sound bath is placed just above the sauna area on a small rise and plateau amongst the trees.
Wrap Up Warm!
Please dress for cold weather!! During breathwork and gongs you will be very still. Bring plenty of baggy clothes to get back into once you are finished after the sauna. Maybe a changing robe for modesty! It's cold but we can manage the cold by wearing, plenty of layers.
Bring a bottle of water
You will sweat a lot in the sauna and so bring some water... with maybe a crunch of sea salt in for hydration.
Wear swimming cozzie underneath
To save time when you get here just wear your cozzie underneath.
Be gentle and don't go out of your depth
If you do decide to have a dip , please be gentle on yourself, go in slowly and incrementally. Then when you are up to your waist slowly submerge. There is no need to go out of your depth. You dip at your own risk.
Head torch or torch
It is helpful for you to bring a head torch or torch. We do have lights, but it is best to have your own personal torch if you have one!
The river is pebbly but it is totally safe but this can be slightly uncomfortable on some feet. So please bring sandals or wetsuit boots if you have sensitive feet and have them.
What should I do in the sauna?
We recommend simply doing the sauna what traditional sauna-ers have long done: nothing. Just sit there. Let your mind go. Do some reflecting while your thinking is still sharp; meditate when your mind starts going blank. Just be.
What should I do after I sauna?
During your sauna session, you’ll lose a lot of water through your sweat — up to four cups during a twenty-minute session! Be sure to rehydrate with plenty of water afterward. Supplement with electrolytes as needed.
We would also recommend to just go easy on yourself. You will be in a state of high vibration and relaxation. You want to be in that state as long as possible so stay away from stressful or negative situations, people or media.
What should I bring?
Bottle of water. Towl. Yoga matt. Bag for putting clothes in while you are in the sauna. Dress in something loose and comfy with bathing costume underneath. We are just in bathing costume in the sauna then in and out of the sea (if you wish). Afterwards it's a case of getting back into your clothes again a bit wet, so consider a dressing gown/towel/ dry robe for modesty. PLease wrap up warm. Plenty of layers.
I do not want to go in the water
That is absolutely fine there is no pressure at all to go in the water! You can stay in the sauna as long as is comfortable and just take breaks out in the air.
What is a sound bath?
A sound bath is a meditative experience where those in attendance are “bathed” in sound waves. These waves are produced by various sources, including healing instruments such as gongs, singing bowls, percussion, chimes, rattles, tuning forks, and even the human voice itself.
What is breathwork?
Breathwork refers to any type of breathing exercises or techniques. People often perform them to improve mental, physical, and spiritual well-being. During breathwork you intentionally change your breathing pattern.
There are many forms of breathwork therapy that involve breathing in a conscious and systematic way. Many people find breathwork promotes deep relaxation or leaves them feeling energized.
