Wild Moves is a series of outdoor mindful movement events

where people gather together to dance outside, in areas of outstanding natural beauty

such as down on the sea shore, or around a fire in the wild woods.


We use "silent disco" style headsets to deliver our outdoor dance experiences;

the sessions are gently guided through the headsets, letting us find the freedom of moving together in areas of wild nature- with no nasty noise pollution to the surrounding environment.


When we dance outdoors we feel connected: to ourselves,

to the others that come together to dance and to the wider world around us.

Compassion and community grows.

When we are outdoors our vision get wider, we relax and receive more,

we becoming open to greater intuition and increased insight.

There is no doubt that nature nurtures us.


Wild Moves events are facilitated by accredited 5 Rhythms teacher, meditation guide and accomplished dance producer Tess Howell, whom has been running these highly popular events world-wide since 2012. Tess leads these events with warmth, vitality, humour and depth; skillfully using the dance to guide us back towards what matters most in life.


5Rhythms dance is one type of contemporary movement-based mindfulness practice. It’s a great way to enjoy ourselves, to exercise and to meditate- all in the same moment! Dancing in this way not only increase our physical agility and fitness; it also increases our authenticity, our emotional awareness, and our effectiveness in the wider world as we become more embodied. There is potency in being present; our dance practice supports us to keep coming back to being here, now.


Wild Moves events offer a free form dance practice, so all you need is the willingness to follow your own feet! There are no steps to learn and nothing to get right. No previous experience is necessary- you are warmly welcome to join exactly as you are.


For many millennia people have gathered together to dance; often out of doors. In Wild Moves events we continue that ancient tradition with modern methods; using the headset technology we can simultaneously both tend to ourselves as we dive deep into the dance- and respect the environment around us and all of it inhabitants.

Science has since proven that those who dance regularly have brighter minds, greater emotional intelligence and a calmer presence. It’s a wonderful way to relax and recharge, to literally “come to our senses” as we move to the music; getting out into the great outdoors.


The Japanese government recommends regular “forest bathing” the practice of moving outside in nature. They have found it lowers heart rate and blood pressure, reduces stress, boosts the immune system, and improves overall wellbeing.


We heartily recommend dancing outdoors too!


We warmly welcome you to join us in the dance.


Here are some of the way that you can take part:

Are you going through a time of transition in your life?

Feeling lost and wondering what happens next?


Come join us on the 17/18th November for a weekend deep dive workshop supporting us in times of change.


We will take time to be with what is shifting and changing shape in our lives.


To honour what was;

learning to be with what is-

accepting and allowing it and into the heart;

then boldly and bravely find our next steps forwards.


We will use 5 Rhythms dance and the arts to support us with what needs to be honoured- mindfully marking our own moments of life transitions, amidst these times of change.


The 5Rhythms are a map to everywhere we want to go: inner, outer, forward, back, physical, emotional, intellectual- they reconnect us to the wisdom of our bodies and unleash movements dynamic healing power.


Rhythm is a refuge.

Movement matters.

Death is not a cause to spin out.

It’s cause to step in. To help, to lend a hand, to open our hearts, to let life move through.It is a call to be profoundly practical. To be pragmatic with our lives. What do we drop into when all else drops away? What sustains us? Gives solace? Holds us in our centre?

How about we get on dancefloor and let ourselves learn to be with it? Read full article here:
