Julie Ann an avid walker from The Pennines in the North West of England, has been walking in nature as early as she can remember, spending most childhood weekends walking over the Wild moors, Forests and Dales of The Peak District National Park. She spent much of her childhood outdoors under canvas or wild camping, tracking animals including red dear and wallabies, through this constant interaction with wild nature; she developed a deep love and respect for her natural surroundings.
Most of Julie Anns family holidays were spent camping or caravanning in the breathtaking surroundings of The Derbyshire Dales, Cheshire, Staffordshire, The Yorkshire Dales, Lake District, or the Llyn peninsular in Wales.
On this quiet and gentle weekend, Julie Ann will be sharing with you the deeper wisdom of two of our most precious gifts, the breath and nature.

Glastonbury was once an inland isle, surrounded by water and only connected to the mainland by a narrow strip of land, which we shall cross on this trip. Visitors to the Isle could sail up the tidal river Brue and legend tells us that on arrival, Joseph planted his staff which took root and blossomed into the now world-famous Glastonbury Thorn.
