Set in the heart of the English countryside Back to Nurture is an invitation to come together, to unwind and reconnect with your inner self and, by listening and receiving, return to your natural rhythm. 

Starting from January 2020 and running every other month, Fiona Arrigo and her expert team will guide you on a four day choreographed journey; returning you to your relationship with the land, inviting you to deep rest, self-nourishment and contemplation. In today’s demanding world, it is easy to loose sight of the simplicity that the human spirit craves and allows us to rest and hear our own instinctual voice. We welcome you to join us to return to this simpler way of being; to forge new alignments with the rhythms of nature and each other; to leave renewed - reconnected with your heart, family, community and the wider world around you. These UK group retreats will cost from £1,695 for 4 days.

As we restore simplicity to our lives, we restore our natural well being. By coming together to work on ourselves we create great potential to positively impact our home, community and work environments and live in 21st century society with courage, joy and meaning.

You will walk, forage, weave, sing, dance, laugh and breathe in the fresh air surrounded by the elements and the restorative powers of the natural world. In tune with the seasons, days will be filled with crafts, wild cooking, drumming, body treatments and meditation, with personal time for writing and reflection. Mornings will begin with movement and breathing to awaken your spirit and honour the earth. Each day will end with sacred ceremonies and fire-side gatherings to honour yourself and each other. A plant-based menu of thoughtfully prepared meals using local ingredients is specially designed to clean, nourish, invigorate and energise. Read about us in the press here.

This precious time, complete with the gentle confiscation of our devices, allows us to tune into deeper impulses that are so often muted by the busyness of our ‘stuffocted’ lives. Held in the safety of this retreat, we convene several times daily in a womb-like yurt, upon which sheepksins, cushions, candles and bundles of wild flowers are lavished.

In a world where demands are many and neediness is considered unattractive, it takes guts to admit that we’re tired, that we’re lonely, or sad. It takes courage to surrender. Stigmas still surround womanhood, both in its modern and ancient senses. Back To Nurture is a haven in which I am able to relinquish my tight hold on appearing ‘capable’, finding strength in admissions of my fallibilities, pride in my femaleness, joy in the recognition of my primal knowledge, and trust in my innate power.
