The Nature Effect: Gratitude, Guidance, Grief and Glory

Disconnect to Reconnect

“I am alarmed when it happens that I have walked a mile into the woods bodily without getting there in spirit.”   Henry David Thoreau (Excursions 1863)

The Nature Effect explores ways in which we can stay connected to our physical relationship with the earth, through our senses, our minds and our psyche. We collaborate with artists, educators, scientists and others to understand our connection (and sometimes our disconnection) through the doorways have meaning to us.   We hope you will find something of interest in our offers below. We invite you to ‘unplug’ for while, step out of your everyday business and get refreshed!

We are very pleased to tell you about a new 4 day experiential retreat for men and women:  Gratitude, Guidance, Grief and Glory.  This will take place by woods and sea in Lyme Regis and his hosted by the artist Hugh Dunford Wood.  We ask “how can we become more open to the questions and guidance Nature can offer us about this wild and precious life?” further information HERE.  Or email us on
