A daylong gathering on the edge of Dartmoor for women to call in the Spring, to feel the holding of sisterhood and connect deeply with the natural world. 

The Call 

Heed the cry of the rising earth and awaken your untamed, dew-drenched self as you step into your own authentic way of being. It is time to fully inhabit your animal body, to give a fierce and full-throated YES to life, let go of self-judgment and fear, and allow the universe to unfold at your feet.

Land and Sky is a collective ritual where we soften the boundaries between ourselves and the natural world. Wild in our strength and sensuality, we will shake off winter’s tendrils and fully embrace the clarity of Spring. As the land jumps into life, we will align our hearts, minds and bodies to wake up the dormant earth energies, dreaming an exuberant and abundant world into being as we unite in embodied prayer amongst crystal-studded rocks. 

"When she walked, it was as if the earth walked with her." - Kasia Urbaniak 

This work is for you if… 

You long for a deeper connection to nature 
You want to awaken the potency of your wild animal body
You wish to embrace your power as woman 
You are seeking clarity and guidance on stuck areas in your life 
You would like to explore shamanism and learn to create sacred space 
You yearn for community with women rooted in nature 
You are seeking support around life transitions 
You are seeking ways to nourish a rich sense of wellbeing and aliveness 
Your life is calling for more magic and mystery 
You seek expansion and a deeper sense of self-knowing 
You are ready to fiercely express your authentic voice 

What to expect 

In this one-day event we will explore rituals and practices to support presence and deepen connection with the self and the natural world, inviting deep listening with the earth. These include:

Nature-based shamanism
Meditative journeying
Systemic constellations
Group healing 

Flow of the day

We will work both individually and as a group, building a sense of collective support in which sensuality and self-expression are all welcome.

The day will begin with a sharing circle and the setting of intentions around the fire. Throughout the day we will work at the yurt space, around the fire or out on the land. 

We will share a light lunch, with soup and grain provided and an invitation to bring extras. 

In the afternoon we will embark on a larger collective ritual and healing practise, with time at the end to gather, reflect and share our experiences. 


You will benefit most from this work if you aim to arrive with a clear head and some sense of which areas of your life are most calling for your attention. Its best to avoid alcohol and drugs the day before and to come well rested and in good time to settle before we begin

Your Guide 

Hannah Sneyd

Hannah Sneyd is a practitioner of family constellations and shamanic healer, a storyteller, poet, psychic, facilitator and curator of immersive and life-enriching events. Having trained in shamanism, tantric bodywork, family constellations and theatre of the oppressed, her work treads a subtle path between the emotionally tender and the transcendent, supporting the full expression of our authentic selves through embodiment and ritual. She draws deeply from the wellspring of nature and from human mythos both ancient and modern. She lives on Dartmoor and spends her free time exploring the Westcountry’s wilds and waves, dancing and digging up the garden.

“Whether it was a women’s circle in a forest, a family constellation or a shamanic healing, I have always come away from Hannah's workshops with profound insights and deep transmissions. She is a natural leader and I’ve always felt very safe in any container that she has created. I also love her sense of humour because she can make very deep transformational processes into fun and light-hearted experiences. I will be recommending her work to my girlfriends for sure.” Sharon Sarasana - Coach, Ireland
