About this Event

Jolly Gutsy Gathering - Day Retreat

Gather around the camp fire for a feast and talks on all things gut health, connection with food, community and nature for your wellbeing.

Come and gather in nature around the camp fire and escape from the busy stresses of life. Time to reconnect with yourself, nature and the food you nourish yourself with.

Join me whilst I cook up a gutsy coeliac friendly feast on the camp fire. I’ll talk about my story of complete breakdown and my journey back to wellness - healing my gut health and reframing my mindset. You will learn the importance of good gut health for physical and mental wellbeing, the benefit of organic chemical free living and how to make really simple changes to your diet and life that will have a powerful impact on the health of you and your family.

This is an incredible day that will uplift your heart and mind. You will realise that good gut health doesn't mean removing all your favourite foods or eating weird dishes you have never heard of. Its actually a very simple way of life and I’ll give you some practical advice and tips on how to make small changes that will have a big impact.

You will arrive at the beautiful woodland garden to a welcome breakfast and warm drink. We will open the day with some breath work, reconnecting with ourselves and calming our busy minds. Gather around the fire snuggled up under blankets with hot drinks whilst I cook and talk you through what a good gut healthy life is and why it is so important. You will hear about the incredible health benefits and the joy of changing your mindset away from your diet focusing on how you look, to eating for how it makes you feel. How a good gut life is not always about removal of foods its more about adding an abundance of goodness.

Before I serve our delicious campfire lunch we will reconnect with nature with a practical creative workshop.

Lunch will be a tasty two course feast of seasonal coeliac gut friendly delights cooked over the fire. Served at the table in the barn or around the fire, as you prefer.

Following your lunch I am so excited to introduce the wonderful Sam from Ki London the Organic Kefir Co. who will be chatting to you about the science and benefits to digestive health of kefir, the benefits of fermentation in breaking down lactose and gluten to feed your microbes and improve your overall digestion. Sam is coming from London and through the day you will get the chance to taste her incredible Kefir, it will change your perspective, we are lucky to have her with us for the day. I am so excited she will be joining us!

Digestion is the corner stone to all health issues. If you are not processing the food you eat then the body isn't getting the nutrients it needs leading to all kinds of health issues from hormonal imbalance to skin issues, arthritis, depression and other diseases.

We will finish the day with tea and cake and a little chat from me about how to reduce the sugar in your diet without removing the fun!

All the seasonal food will have full provenance. It will be as local and as organic as possible, we have the most wonderful organic farmers here in Yorkshire.

Its going to be so beautiful to create a community of gutsy gatherers. I do hope you can join us. It will open your eyes to new possibilities and change the way you think about managing your health and wellbeing.

What did the Autumn Gatherers Say? Reviews from edition one…

‘It really was a very special day! I loved it and really felt part of a warm and welcoming community even though I'd only just met everyone, I try to eat well and take care of myself but as I came away from the gathering I had a new found sense of the importance of self care through a natural and nutritious diet'.

‘I’ve really been given a great push from your day’

‘Weeks on I am still feeling the positive uplifting energy from your Gutsy Gathering Thankyou!’

‘Thank you so much for today - amazing!! You were brilliant and it was so lovely to meet everyone. I found it strangely moving to listen to someone else who gets the whole gut thing. As you know, it can be a weirdly solitary journey learning about it all so I’m happy I’ve found someone else who feels so passionately about it.It’s late now so I won’t ramble on but just had to tell you how much I enjoyed today. I feel very honoured to have been able to join in your first Gutsy gathering. I got so much more out of it than I could have imagined!’

Weather policy: This event is all about reconnecting with nature and the elements so much of the day will be outside whatever the weather so please dress sensibly in warm coats and shoes. There is a barn if there is a storm but will be for shelter only. If we have to reschedule because of the weather we will move you ticket to the new date.

Dietary Requirements: I cater for all dietary needs except regrettably Nut allergies, I hate not being able to cater for you nut allergic friends but my kitchen is completely coeliac friendly and I use a lot of nuts. I know how much havoc trace gluten has on me and I cannot guarantee cross contamination of nuts, I am so sorry!

I’d recommend driving if you are staying the weekend as trips to The North York Moors, Beach resorts, York and nearby Castle Howard or the food capital of Yorkshire - Malton are all beautiful places to spend time and within one hours drive.

Thank you for reading the Jolly Journal and all about this event - I really appreciate your interest and hope it's of value to you. I am dyslexic and for years this stopped me writing because of the fear of getting it wrong. Now I am embracing my fear so I appreciate your understanding if you see a mistake I have missed.
Thank you! - Polly x
