The intention for the weekend is transformation, catalysed by wondrous workshops, sacred ceremony and mellifluous music.
This is our third gathering, and we’re expanding upon the magic created from the previous ones’, to inspire you with the knowledge, energy and self-belief to step into your true self and embrace life with optimism and trust.
We’re super excited to welcome you at the Wider Horizons Summer Gathering 2021. Join us over three days at a beautiful sacred site and make some amazing friends for life!
”Wider Horizons was without doubt the most profound weekend of my life. Each workshop facilitated a transformation, whether that be through gaining knowledge, wisdom or an inner shift. I left feeling lighter, more aligned and truly connected with my inner and outer worlds. It was so inspiring to be surrounded by like-minded, conscious people; the energy that was curated was magic. I am so grateful to have experienced its subtle but deep impact, knowing that the lessons I learnt will be carried with me throughout my life.” Zofia Page (Daughter of Jimmy) age 21
