Unearth the Wild Within

Allwoman Seasonal Workshops

A one year seasonal course for all women of all ages starting in February 2019

What is it for you to be a woman?

Following the Celtic Wheel of the Year, journey deep into yourself through Yoga, Somatic movement and ancient wisdom, honouring and aligning with the natural rhythms and cycles of the seasons, the moon and yourself and exploring your connection to nature and your true self and how this ripples through into your relationships with others.

Unearth the wise and wild spirit that resides in all of us, that innate knowing that requires no other guru but ourselves, the Earth and the natural cyclical wisdom we have around us.

Why join me on this journey?

I’m Lara Heppell and this course is the coming together of all the work I’ve been doing over the last four or five years with Yoga teachers Angela Farmer and Uma Dinsmore Tuli, Somatic Movement, Experiential Anatomy and Authentic Movement teachers Fabiano Cularo, Andrea Olsen and Karen Mchose, my Shamanic Womb Wisdom teacher Joanna Joy and also my Meditation teacher Zeenat Cameron, as well as my own personal explorations and teachings gleaned from my many amazing students.

I’ve run Celtic Wheel seasonal workshops for a while, but it’s been a dream of mine to provide a safe, open and welcoming space for women to find connection and solitude as they create a strong circle that can grow and evolve over a year as we journey together through a full sun cycle.

And now is the right time for me to take these sessions outside, adding different elements to them and providing time and space for sharing, moving, exploring, learning, creating and deep reflection.

Only £450 if paid in full or £60 deposit to secure your place, followed by 12 monthly payments of £35.

The important stuff


The cost of this year-long programme is £480 if paying by installments or £450 if you pay in full.

If you choose the payment plan option, a non-refundable £60 deposit will be due immediately to secure your place followed by 12 monthly payments of £35 to be paid on the 15th of each month.

Once the programme begins, no refunds can be given so make sure the dates work for you and you know in your heart this programme is for you.

If you commit to the programme and opt for the payment plan, you will need to pay the full course fees even if circumstances change and you can no longer attend the sessions. However, if you can find another person to take your place on the programme, the outstanding fees can be transferred to them, but please bear in mind that the idea is that we circle together for a full year so changes to the circle once we begin will impact the group dynamic so any replacements need to be considered carefully before changes can be made.

If you choose to pay by instalments and need to delay a monthly payment during the 12 month direct debit period, for whatever reason, it can be discussed and reviewed with me on a case by case basis.

How to book your place

Places are limited 12-15 people.

To book your place, email me at lara@all-woman.co.uk with ‘Unearth the Wild Within booking’ in the subject line.

Missed sessions

If there are certain dates you cannot make, I will offer follow up calls with me to catch up on the sessions missed, alongside recordings of the content for these sessions and any applicable handouts and information.

Withdrawal from the programme

Unfortunately refunds can not be given if you withdraw from the programme for whatever reason. However, I may consider filling your place with a replacement attendee found by you if it is early in the programme.

So looking forward to year of exploring outside with you.
