SYC is delighted to partner again with the wonderful Blue, from Dohm Shop & Clay Coven to create a multidisciplinary immersion celebrating creative and ancient yogic practices, the natural landscape and contemporary witchcraft. All the good stuff we have been craving as we’ve been wintered.
For our weekend together, we have planned a nourishing and inspiring programme. Mornings will be spent exploring presence and poetry through yoga with contemporary movement and breath-work. The afternoons will be time for the exploration of creative practices as magical endeavour.
Blue is an artist, designer, teacher and practising witch. She will introduce us to using clay as a tool to create your own pertinent rituals. She will take us through creating clay vessels that will then be returned to the earth to seed our spells and dreams, and using the natural world as a tool for image making through experimental collage. Using surrealist, magical and creative practices you will each leave with a body of work to mark your time with us.
Many people join retreats for the practises and yoga, but after our first day retreat in London, we were reminded of the power in conversations and the poignancy of new connections. With this in mind, we’ve decided to invite you to read Lolly Willowes so we can all discuss it in an afternoon of lazy sunshine.
Exploring themes of feminism, activism, magic, gender, and nature politics - it’s the perfect starting point for exploring how we integrate our personal practices and private mythologies (with joy!) into the ecosystem around us.
We will be staying in the beautiful surroundings of Settle in Norfolk. An enclave of small lakes, woods and wildflowers, Settle is a retreat from the circus of modern life and an immersion into the deeply magical world of nature.
You will have the choice to stay in incredible hand-crafted cabins, carriages or canvas tents, meaning you will be close to nature but with the added luxury of lake views, your own fires and beautiful bathrooms.
We will also be offering a number of camping slots for those who would rather join from their own tents.
Featured in World of Interiors and Tatler this is a place for people with a keen eye for details and comfort but who still want to be connected to the natural world.
3 nights stay Settle in either a cabin, carriage, canvas tent or camping Welcome pack including - Dohm Ceramic cup, handmade incense, and a notebook
All food & drink including a dinner by KILN
Clay Vessel Ritual
Using clay as a medium for holding our dreams, we will make vessels and learn meaningful rituals to use on a day to day basis as part of a wider individual magical practice.
Using drawing and mark-making skills that focus on texture and pattern, we will experiment with abstract, and non-representative drawing and collage techniques working with nature and the natural surfaces that surround us.
Evening fireside rituals/discussion with music.
