Why we
host experiences?

Michelle Parry, The Rewilding, Lancaster.jpeg

Bringing people togther to create meaningful experiences is my happy place. I’ve hosted and facilitated events all over the world, designing immersive experiences and creating beautiful spaces where people can connect with themselves, each other and nature. ​

I host retreats because I can see before my eyes the threads of our society and what makes us human slipping away into a world of technology and burnout. I've been there. This new normal is making us sick and disconnected from each other and the natural world, consequently, making the ecosystem we are part of also sick. Collectively we have overcomplicated and over consumed to a point that our entire exisitence is in jeaporady.  I beleive the fundamentals to our healing is about connection, with each other and with the planet, and about reciprocity. The Rewild Yourself Retreats are designed around reminding ourselves of the simplicity and pureness of joy we get from in real life human and nature connection. We need this now, more than we've ever needed it before.

How Connection Changes Our Lives

Core human need

It's part of our social evolution,  being part of a tribe was a survival mechanism, and we are social beings. Meaningful connections give us a sense of belonging and oneness, and allow us to thrive.

Decreases anxiety & depression

Having a strong support system, where you feel safe and connected helps you to overcome challenges more easily, regulate emotions and maintain a healthy state of mental well-being.

A long & happy life

  A lack of human connection through loneliness and isolation has been shown to impact both our physical and emotional health and has even been found to be more harmful than even obesity and smoking.

Healthy Relationships

Technology is rapidly replacing in real-life connections and it is making us suffer from a mental health epidemic unfolding before our eyes. In-person, human connection is the most precious thing we have.

WHAT PEOPLE SAY

 Wasn't sure what to expect as this was the first time I'd done something like this. I felt like I was in such safe hands the whole time, whether it was with Michelle or Luke and also with the facilitators. I felt I had nothing to worry about and had a feeling of not having a care in the world. Everything felt so inclusive and accessible for all. The feelings of peace and grounding have stayed with me since my experience which tells me the retreat well and truest served its purpose.
