Come away with me to the dappled green wild.
Come away to the dwelling of plants and trees.
And the four-legged, the winged, the creeping, burrowing, swimming ones.
Come away to slip through the wild and gentle air,
under the arching sky, across the strong land.

Come away with me
You and your animal body
Out into the world that formed you
Across two million years.
Come away down paths less traveled
Since our modern culture drowned out
The song of the world.

And what will you find there?
It all depends on what you come looking for

Some peace in mind and emotions
A sense of wellbeing in a stress-filled life?

A deep attunement with the natural world
Embodied, Sensory, Unspoken?

The chance to ground yourself
Find your bearings, a new sense of self, a fresh phase in life?

Or maybe you’re trying to make sense of the civilisation we have created.
Wanting to work out your place in it
From the ground up? 

Or is there yet something else
That calls you closer
To the land?

Come away with me
Out into the dappled green wild
And discover ways of seeing, being and living
That will surprise, delight and inspire.

Come and do a workshop or a longer programme with me.

There are workshops that offer different focuses – wellbeing, nature awareness, navigating life’s phases and cultural reflection.

They all share common principles and practices as their foundation, developed over the last fifteen years. They suit different budgets and have different levels of facilities offered. Most are one day, some are multi-week, one lasts six months.

Find out more about the workshops and about me through the buttons below.

I also offer one-to-one personal development and coaching. Email me to find out more.

"a unique and wonderfully potent experience of very high quality"

I was moved and impressed by the workshop which was a multi layered experience. I am very used to this kind of experience and so was especially amazed and delighted to get so much out of it. Alistair’s mix of spiritual aptitude, philosophical knowledge, facilitation and practical skills is unusual in my experience and combined to make this a unique and wonderfully potent experience of very high quality.

Latest Update – Wednesday 13th October

Thank you so much for clicking your way to my website. I appreciate you spending a few moments here.

I have pretty much finished running workshops for this year. Just the last few weeks of Wild Mind in progress now. There will be lots happening in 2022. Do sign up for the newsletter to be kept informed. 

I ran a workshop last weekend in a beautiful, privately owned woodland just north of Lewes. I plan to run many more workshops there – it really is fabulous. Do come and join me at something there next year.

I will be putting lots of useful content on the website in the next few months. So do keep checking back here. And I will let you know when new things are ready via the newsletter.

Have a great autumn and hope to meet you at something soon.

Thanks

Alistair

about me

Hi. I am Alistair and I am deeply curious about how we humans can “live life well”. For me, that has something to do with living life with heart, presence and pleasure. And I have a strong conviction that we have the best chance of making sense of our lives if we rediscover a place of deep attunement with the more-than-human world. For the last 15 years, I have worked as a trainer, ecopsychologist and coach/therapist helping people explore ways of living their lives well with an evolving approach that I call “a way of natural being”.
