Fully immersive rewilding, bushcraft and wild cooking course with wilderness experts Wild Human in the Lake District.

About this event

"We must rewild the world." - Sir David Attenborough

‘Rewilding’ usually refers to the land. It is equally valuable to rewild ourselves as humans. In our culture we have moved away from our natural way of being, in tune with our land. We need to make an effort to embrace inner change, reawaken our senses, live more in tune with the natural world and reap the health benefits as well as leaving a lighter footprint on our planet.

This inspirational nature-based retreat is about returning to wild places, embracing slow-tech, hiking in forests, wild swimming, tuning in your senses, and learning how to unlock the hidden secrets of the countryside. Reintegrating and immersing yourself in nature is good for your physical well-being and mental health.

Our beautiful basecamp is in a newly established native woodland with a few sentinel ancient oaks; a mosaic of vibrant habitats from biodiverse wetland to restored woodland, where you will learn low-impact camping techniques. Learn how to reconnect with nature, and our intrinsically wild hunter-gatherer bodies and brains. Taking the time to engage with nature, and the desire to reignite your sense of wonder and curiosity, is essentially a core skill!

Walk with bare-feet, feel grounded, learn about plants, trees, fungi and animals, how to forage and eat seasonal wild food, harvest wild medicine, light a fire, read the stories in the stars, learn traditional crafts and make something with your hands, learn new skills, embrace your circadian rhythms – start to restore your ancient balance, feel invigorated and realize your true human potential.

Organic, seasonal, wild, and vegetarian-based meals on all courses (vegan options available for all meals).

THE LOCATION – OAK HOWE

Oak Howe is 13 acres of private young woodland. Planted with native broadleaf trees from 2011 as a re-wilding/woodland creation project. It is home to some beautiful mature oak trees and a stretch of river that add to an ever-increasing diversity of wildlife. Oak Howe is located within the Lake District National Park, half-way between Kendal and Windermere.

SOCIAL IMPACT

We wish that the wild and nature learning experiences were easily accessible to all. However, the environmental poverty is becoming a real phenomenon of the modern society. But we don’t give up! With a super enthusiastic support of our Vivobarefoot colleague who comes from South Africa, every ticket bought, will enable a child to have a guided experience into nature outside of Cape Town.
