A SUMMARY

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!

We will be hiking an 8-mile circular section of the South Downs over the Seven Sisters and through Friston forest. The walk is fully guided and facilitated, incorporating talking activities inspired by the landscape. The aim is to encourage reflection, gratitude and resolution-setting to mark the passing of the year and celebrate the opportunities presented by the new year. There will be games, discussions, story-telling, and maybe even singing too!

About your Mentor

About your Mentor

Julia

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!

Learning aims

To undertake a hearty 24hr wild adventure in midwinter!

Strengths to develop

We will be walking 8 miles, camping in the wild, and swimming in the sea in mid-winter. Not for the faint-hearted!
