Expedition Leader/Wilderness Guide
Find your wild tribe for a New Year's Eve with a difference! A hike, wild camp, and morning dip in the sea to welcome in 2021 with a roar of adventure! This is a 24hr wild experience on the South Downs, incorporating reflection, celebration and intention-setting, all curated and facilitated by Julia, an experienced wilderness therapy leader.

About your Mentor
About your Mentor
I am a wilderness therapy facilitator, with a background in teaching and expedition leading. Having grown up on a diet of Type 2 fun, served as an army cadet officer, travelled extensively and led youth expeditions all over the world, I walked a solo pilgrimage of the Camino de Santiago, which inspired me to commit to a life of simplicity and freedom. My passion is to empower people to experience the positive benefits of time spent immersed in nature, to come into a more fulsome awareness of their own nature, and to access joy for themselves through a life of self-expression, honesty and courage. Having led walks over the South Downs for three years, in this experience I have woven together my love for the landscape with the thrill of cold water swimming and my passion for empowering wilderness adventures. And I happen to have also created the only sort of New Year's Eve I ever want to have!
