A journey of self-discovery and new meaning
Over the last year, many of us have considered what truly matters; family ties and friendships, work and wellbeing have all given us pause for thought. Some of us are contemplating making changes in our personal or professional lives but are feeling stuck or uncertain about what lies ahead.
This summer, Green Farm is hosting The Spiral Path of Healing, a labyrinth workshop that will help guide you towards finding new meaning through self-discovery.
What is a labyrinth workshop?
For centuries, labyrinths have captured the visual and spiritual imagination of cultures around the world, from Ancient Greece to modern day Pacific Island nations. Typically represented as a spiral pathway, the labyrinth has come to be a symbol of wholeness and meaning achieved through meditation and journeys of self-discovery.
As your feet trace the pathway towards the centre of the labyrinth you are drawn deeper into yourself and towards your own meaning. As you trace the path back out, you emerge with new-found clarity and connection to your purpose.
On Sunday 11 July, you will walk a labyrinth in the lush natural surroundings of Green Farm. You will set an intention that is personal to you and be guided to deepen your stillness, observe the signs from your surroundings and access the information you are seeking. The natural surroundings and ancient woodland will help you to clear and cleanse mental chatter and brings balance to your body.
What you might receive from the workshop
The Spiral Path of Healing will be a deeply personal experience, but we anticipate you will:
Establish an intention to seed and grow over the coming months
Find a new energy to process a life issue or challenge
Connect with and learn to trust your inner source of wisdom
Delve deeper into your soul’s calling
Open your senses for a greater communication with nature
Your guides for the day are Alison Lingwood and Lindsay Thompson, who between them have more than 80 years’ experience in teaching, therapy and the medical profession. There’s more information about them in our recent blog

What to bring
The day is about getting back to nature so we spend a lot of time outside when we can:
Wellies, walking boots or trainers that you don't mind getting a little muddy
Warm and waterproof clothing for walks in the woods (we advise long trousers as there can be insects during the summer months and brambles/nettles)
Sunscreen if it is a warm, sunny day
A journal and pen to record your reflections and the insights awakened
A curious mind and body, open to the invisible gifts that nature brings
As a working farm and wellness destination, food is an important part of the whole Green Farm experience. Guests will enjoy nutritious, freshly-prepared, homemade dishes using primarily Green Farm produce that are inspired by the seasons and what is growing in the Community Wildlife and Vegetable Garden.
All menus and dishes are created by Green Farm’s in-house cook Amelia who works closely with Nutritional Consultant, Alice Yeates, to design naturally healthy, well-balanced recipes especially for those with special dietary requirements.
