July 22 2024 - A Path to The Bothy by Wildsmith: Detoxification, Microbiome and Immunity – Open to All

Share in the company of our Bothy family to discover a deeper understanding of our wellbeing philosophy and the spaces of the Bothy itself – usually reserved just for our resident guests and Friends of Heckfield.

The second in a series of three days open for all to book, our July gathering will be guided by the safe and caring hands of our new Master Practitioner, Jennifer Harper-Deaconour ‘Medicine Woman’, and Amy Steadman, our wellbeing eco-psychologist and will focus on:

  • Safe and effective detoxification regimes and how this connects to the seasons
  • The common myths about fasting
  • The relationship of our microbiome to our immune system and our mental and emotional wellbeing 

The day begins with a morning Nature Therapy session through the beautiful grounds and woodlands of Heckfield where Amy will lead a mindful experience to help you reconnect with nature – an antidote for our ‘always-on’ indoor lives.

This will carry on to an intimate seasonal lunch hosted by Jennifer, fuelled with biodynamic produce from our Market Garden and organic Home Farm. Here, you will delve into discussion and connection on the topics of the day, while enjoying a sensory experience and reconnecting to what it means to eat mindfully. Jennifer will also share how each season provides a unique healing opportunity to restore your body’s natural equilibrium – embracing your body’s emotional and spiritual connection to the natural world.

After lunch, we’ll gently open the doors of our Bothy for a therapeutic Sauna Medicine experience facilitated by our passionate and caring practitioners before time to use the 18m x 6m Waters and hydrotherapies.
