Return to the Wild: A Weekend Retreat for Nervous System Nurturing and Natural Unwinding

Immerse yourself in the untouched beauty of Sweden’s wilderness with “Return to the Wild,” a retreat designed to nurture your nervous system and facilitate natural unwinding. This transformative experience combines ancient practices with modern techniques, creating an embodied experience that guides you toward deep relaxation and self-discovery.

The Healing Power of Somatic Wilderness Immersion

Our bodies are wired for ebbs and flow, just like the natural world. Here we recognize the inherent power of time spent connecting with the natural environment for mental and physical well-being. By immersing ourselves in nature through movement, sensory experiences, and contemplative practices, we deepen our understanding of ecological interconnectedness and foster a profound sense of belonging. Through this integration, we become more attuned to the rhythms of nature and forage new pathways to personal transformation.

What to Expect

Join us at “Return to the Wild” where the pristine wilderness of Sweden becomes your sanctuary for nervous system nurturing and natural unwinding. Experience the powerful effects of healing in the wild, and let the natural world guide you back to your true self.

  • Somatic Release Sessions: Embodiment sessions for nervous system regulation are designed to facilitate an exploration towards resilience. These sessions offer a safe space to explore techniques that help regulate the body’s stress response, release long-held tension patterns, and promote deep presence. Through the practices of Neurogenic Yoga™ and Tension and Trauma Releasing Exercises® (TRE®) you’ll learn to naturally release tension and cultivate a deeper connection with your innate capacity for freedom.

  • Movement in Nature: Spend time exploring nature with guided walks along tranquil trails, movement practices in the wild, and circles around the fire.

  • Creative Expression: Unleash your creativity through art, music, and other expressive activities. The natural environment serves as both a muse and a source of inspiration.
