Earth Living Wellbeing Gathering

Soulful, Soil-full Community

1st-3rd Sept 2023

@ Hempen, Hardwick Estate, Reading

Are you yearning for a weekend in the wild?

Our community is in the heart of nature; a farm on the edge of the woods, only a stone’s throw away from the River Thames. We invite you to walk with us through the forest and discover the wisdom of plants through foraging, wild cooking and hemp workshops. Receive the nourishment of the earth through wholesome hemp-inspired food and be immersed in the cool, natural river waters.

Our cosy tipi is a magical way to welcome the evening, round the fire, sharing songs over a warm cup of raw cacao. Let your body and voice be energised by the elemental gifts of this earth, through guided movement, sound journeys and the stillness between each breath.


The Earth Living family are partnering with Hempen Co-operative to create a space for reconnection and community.

Earth Living Well-being Gathering – Autumn 2023 includes:

- Embodied Yoga
- Foraging
- Sound Journey
- Hemp & CBD
- Sensory Nature Walks
- River Swimming
- Art and Creativity
- Primal Vinyasa
- Wild Cooking
- Voice Connection
- Tipi Fireside Music

This gathering takes place just before the Autumn Equinox; a time of balance, when day and night are of equal lengths. We are invited to reflect, gather our harvests and take stock of everything we have manifested so far. Let’s celebrate the fruits of this year and give gratitude to the earth for its wisdom and abundance.
