The Wild Love Experience's retreats are about connecting to nature, to each other and to yourself. Join them for a weeklong program in the beautiful Tulbagh valley - to refine and grow your ancestral skills and connect in a community of powerful heart-centered women. This retreat is a magical opening to experience a greater sense of belonging and relationship with the wild world around us. This is a place to feed the wild woman within, to be held by the earth and replenish your body, mind and soul with ancestral skills and ceremonial arts.
This retreat will be held at Guinevere Guest Farm situated just outside of Cape Town, South Africa.
The accommodation is surrounded, almost cradled, by majestic mountains in the Tulbagh valley on a nature-full farm. Whether you stay in a private room with en-suite bathroom and a balcony or whether you share a room with one or two others, there are many places to relax and reflect in this large retreat farmhouse that you have all to yourself for the duration of the week.
All rooms are beautiful, large, and comfortable with en-suite bathrooms, seating areas, and balconies overlooking the Tulbagh Basin. The private rooms are equipped with seating areas and en-suite bathrooms with private balconies. Meanwhile, shared rooms are facilitated with double beds and en-suite bathrooms.
On the 2-day bushcraft course:
You will take home everything you make from the course.
On the traditional herbalism, folklore, and plant magic workshop:
The sweat lodge ceremonies:
There will be two sweat lodge ceremonies during your 7 days retreat. A sacred tradition of the Native American people, the sweat lodge is a unique healing ritual with deep detoxifying benefits to the body, mind and soul. It is a spiritual experience that delivers a journey of physical and spiritual purification. Whilst inside the lodge, people may speak, share stories, sing songs and pray and this experience can help people through difficult transitions in their life.
Fabric alchemy: batik and natural bundle dyeing workshop:
You will be working with natural plant fibres and plant material to create beautiful fabrics with the colours of nature. Batik is a process where selected areas of the cloth are blocked out by brushing or drawing hot wax over them, and the cloth is then dyed. The parts covered in wax resist the dye and remain the original colour. This process of waxing and dyeing can be repeated to create more elaborate and colourful designs. After the final dyeing the wax is removed and the cloth is ready.
Bundle dye is a process of transferring colour from plant material onto a cloth. You can get the contact prints by bundling materials between layers of fabric, twisting them around rods, wrapping tightly and then steaming.
Wild food foraging class:
Carly has always felt a deep connection with the earth and all the creatures living therein. After completing her studies as an interior designer, her heart guided her to another somewhat less traveled road entirely, as she spent months living in the South African bush and gaining her field guide certification. Combining her various and varied skills, Carly brings a stylishly earthy insight into nature’s bounty, sharing her knowledge about herbalism, wild food foraging, farm-to-table cooking, and natural movement at The Wild Love.
The retreat takes place on a private farm in Tulbagh, a 90-minute drive out of Cape Town and the ideal space for the utmost rest, relaxation, and healing to happen. The farm is surrounded by mountains and pristine fynbos where there is plenty of nature walks and rescue animals to keep you busy.
Nourishment is an important part of The Wild Love Experience and integrates not only in vibrant diet but through sincere human connection. We serve organic meals created with love and packed with superfoods, providing the nutrients needed to energize and revitalize from the inside out.
All recipes will be gifted to you in an E-book so you can move forward inspired to sustain the nourishing practices of The Wild Love Experience.
