Event description
Join us for a zero-waste, plastic-free, restorative gathering dedicated to empowering people with the skills to be self-sustainable.

About this Event

Our Primal Nature is Love. Our Tribe is all Tribes. Planet Earth is our Home.

We believe that when we merge tribes from all walks of life and aim to build, not destroy, we serve as an example to the world as a model of Conscious Living and Sustainability. It is our belief that the root of all evil comes from disconnection and a lack of self-love. That is why the world needs more safe spaces like the ones we create for people to be themselves. Fully.

Join us for a three and a half day zero-waste, plastic-free, restorative gathering dedicated to empowering people with the skills to be self-sustainable and that can be used in their day-to-day lives.

Together we join to build a community practice of restoring ecosystems, while replenishing ourselves and nurturing our relationships. Leaving people and places better than how we find them. As a community we build, plant and grow on the land we are on;

  • Physically
  • Emotionally
  • Spiritually

Our Vision - Regeneration

That together as a tribe we plant seeds for a more sustainable future. That we as a community gather together every year in this way, leaving the places we occupy better than how we find them. Our intention is to be a sustainable model that can be used to restore forests and ecosystems all over the world.

Our intention is to plant at least 2072 trees per year during our events, working towards planting 1 million trees within the next 5 years. All our events will promote zero waste and plastic-free living. Our next event will be a reforestation gathering on November 1-3rd.

Self Responsibility

Primal Gathering asks that all those who join us make an extra effort to be aware of their behaviour towards themselves, those they interact with and the Earth we are protecting. We kindly request that each individual is mindful of their waste and cleaning habits whilst on site, as everyone is expected to clean up after themselves. In short, we are all responsible for a zero impact and zero footprint presence during our stay.

We also encourage you to make use of this time to tune in, consistently, to manage your own energy, acknowledging what is a full-body yes, full-body no, and when you can or cannot be social with others. In life it can be hard to do so, so we invite you to try something different during our gathering.

What is Primal?

Primal is a family of holistic facilitators, safe spaces and good people focused on empowering people to return to their primal nature through sound, movement, meditation, nutrition and different forms of creativity. Creating spaces for people to give themselves permission to be all of themselves.
