About This Event
OUR RETREATS ARE ABOUT CONNECTING TO NATURE, TO EACH OTHER AND TO YOURSELF.
Join us for a week-long program this September 20-26th 2019, 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.
Celebrate the beauty of life and womanhood by learning Earth-based skills such as primitive pottery, camouflage, fire by friction, and herbal medicine making. Sleep under the stars and connect to your inner wise women in our sweat lodge and moon ceremonies.
Tribal people all over the world rely on primitive bushcraft skills to provide in their everyday needs and you will learn how to use natural resources to provide in your survival needs. On this 7 day intensive we will focus on learning and mastering bushcraft skills that will open up a whole new wild and wonderful world.
Sink your roots deep within the ground, call on your ancestors, the flowers and the animals and allow your spiritual imagination to deepen and expand as we take you on this powerful rewilding journey.

Venue HighlightsThe Wild Love is run from the gorgeous Guinevere Guest Farm, which is located a 90-minute drive from the tourist hot spot of Cape Town. The farmhouse is situated on 95ha of private land nestled amongst indigenous fynbos and lends itself to the ideal space in which one can immerse in nature and the tranquility of the abundant fynbos and bird life.
There is a large swimming lake for those hot summer months, a pool on the upper level and a river in springtime.
A short walk away is a gorgeous waterfall and rock pools to cool off in or watch the sunrise over the valley.
The farm is also a rescue sanctuary with cows, pigs, chickens, and donkeys- all rescued and given a second chance to live out their days with us.
80% of the farm is pure and untouched fynbos, which is the most diverse and richest plant biome in the world.
There is a sweat lodge and yoga studio on the property
