What we do…
We’re curious about how being immersed in open water, or outdoor ‘blue spaces’, especially the sea, can create a greater sense of connection, enhance our sense of wellness, boost our health and teach us empathy for each other and our environment. We design and deliver immersive nature-based experiences in self-discovery, personal transformation, creative processes, leadership and team building for diverse groups and needs. Tailored and curated small group, half day, full day, 3 day retreats & workshops, extended adventure experiences with guided and self-guided elements. And we’re always looking for others who share our passion to collaborate with!
Be Like Water – coming soon!
Be Like Water (BLW) is our flagship experience.
BLW celebrates our watery evolution, recognising that our bodies and our planet are mostly water. It aims to tap into the more playful, creative and therapeutic qualities of the water, especially the sea. With a focus on body-breath-water connection that has helped young women overcome fear, build trust, self-confidence and a greater ocean awareness from the desert coast of Iran to the col water of Ireland and beyond.
In the words of Shirin Gerami:
‘Surfing can showcase the beauty of in our differences by allowing us to be truly who we are when we surrender to the playfulness of waves and wave-riding.’
Using water (sweet and salty!) as an immersive, sensory learning experience to get out of your mind and into your body. Learn exercises for connecting to body-breath-water to bring profound shifts in the way we think, listen and feel in our lives.
Learn to challenge your comfort zone, meet resistance with flow, trust the process, with ‘nature-in-mind’.
BLW typically is run as a 3-day workshop but can be broken down into shorter 1-2 day facilitated workshops:
- Still Water – session in calm water (e.g. freshwater pool, lake)
- Wave-play – body-surf session and introduction to waves
- Wave-riding – surf session
(First developed in Persia by Irish surfer Easkey Britton and Iranian triathlete Shirin Gerami as a cross-cultural medium to facilitate change and transformation with vulnerable groups, with elements adapted from free-diving, mindfulness mediation, body-surfing and surfing).
What participants say:
“I notice I feel lighter and calmer.” – Marieh
“It’s easier when I relax my body, I feel more relaxed.” – Fereshteh
Being immersed in an unpredictable, fluid environment can allow us to find our own sense of aliveness;
“I feel like I am flying — out there on the water you don’t think about any of your problems.” – Kimieh
Women’s Creative Storytelling Workshops
Give expression to who you are – freely and truly without expectations.
Born from a desire to give voice to the hidden parts of who we are and celebrate each others stories.
We will work with a creative and visual process of authentic exploration and expression using mixed-mediums (drawing on my own experiences with working through fear, ideas and creative blocks).
The format is non-digital, but provides tools and processes that could be translated into digital form. In essence, “how to find your story before you even start making it / telling it.”
This workshop provides a safe and trusting space that gives us permission to step out of the box and find strength in our vulnerability. It’s about how we might challenge some of the stories we live on a daily basis that we fail to question.
