A summary
Renew your creative path, with guest facilitator. Phil Greenwood has been leading this very popular camp for a number of years now, it is an opportunity for you to check in with what 'lights you up', to find a guiding star to aim towards. Leo Rutherford will be joining the camp for Saturday, bringing his wisdom and deep experience to the conversation as we explore archetypes. This 'drop-in' weekend comes under the umbrella of The Phoenix Journey, an exciting new Sacred Earth adventure. Saturday can be booked as a stand-alone option. The venue is our land at Sacred Earth, where we have 40 acres of beautiful woodland, lakes and meadows. Indoor accommodation and gathering place will be used as more comfortable this time of year. Delicious, nutritious food will be provided throughout. The full Phoenix Journey is a unique, year-long quest; blending shamanic practitioner training, nature-based mentoring and cultural regeneration. It is designed to support you to find your own sense of place, purpose and belonging. Please also get in touch if you would like to join the waiting list for our next year-long quest.

About your mentors
Nature educator & environmentalist
Hello, I'm Phil Greenwood. I am the founder of Sacred Earth. I'm a former Royal Marine Commando but have spent the last 20 years working with young people in outdoor education and taking adults on deep nature connection journeys. I'm an experienced group facilitator, mentor and naturalist. I have studied, practiced and taught advanced shamanic and connection practices from both the British Isles and other indigenous cultures around the world. I'm also part of the global 8 Shields nature mentoring movement. I strongly believe that people need nature based rites-of-passage programmes to help them find their place in the world. At Sacred Earth we aim to do just that. Our courses and programmes help people develop their social and emotional intelligence through a range of experiential learning programmes, which can be tailored to and delivered at a site of your choice. We encourage creativity, community, ingenuity and a deep connection with the natural world.

Cancellation Policy
I am not able to offer refunds in general but may be able to if there is good notice.

My experience consists of a leisure activity, on a specific date(s), and therefore the 14-day ‘cooling off period’ under the Consumer Contracts Regulations 2013 does not apply.
