consent – ritual – emergent – embodied– diversity – self-development – connection – inspiration – creativity– play - sex magic -  integration


Entering the winter, we follow the cycles together, explore the roots and the ground of our being, deepen our knowledge and awareness and build practices that we can weave into our lives for sustenance and growth.


A group of experienced facilitators will bring their skills and offerings and work together to tune into the energies of the group, the land and themselves, and to shape the event structure based on what is emerging. Held-in-the-Flow will be a lovingly and safely held space where everyone can also be part of the process of creation, as we all continue to learn to trust the integrity of our bodies, our intuitions, our energies and our magical connections.

Lloyd Collins – Food Co-ordinator


I was always a big boy, second helpings were never enough for me. I try to minimise my greed to sometimes I just cant help myself. I’ve always been passionate about food, creating and eating delicious meals. I’m looking forward to keeping everyone well fed and nourished throughout the event. Having an interest in the link between food and state of mind as well as general wellbeing has lead me in personal exploration of whole food, raw food, low carb and paleo diets and other aspects of healthy eating. My passion for eating has also led me on an exploration of big piles of naughty greasy deliciousness so there may be influences from both sides! I’m experienced in event catering both in manging the kitchen and teams to produce food for large numbers and I’m feeling excited about being part of the Held in the Flow team.
