Vicky and Hannah getting ready to take us into a cold November sea for embodied wild sea swimming, to build resilience for life through the experience, and making meaning from going into the sea.
Surfing the Unpredictable was our fringe event at Meaning Conference.
The sea was calm at our Embodied Wild Swimming session in September. The next one is on the morning of Meaning conference in November!
It was a gorgeously sunny September day for our Embodied Wild Swimming class. The sea was calm. We had welsh cakes round the fire after. Session leader Vicky says "We hope you continue to be curious about what you do and continue to sea swim. Long may the September sun shine."
Some feedback and pictures from yesterday's Embodied Wild Swimming workshop, facilitated by Vicky Cuming. An exploration of our personal relationship with the sea, with a guided swim and fire after.
"a gentle and grounding experience which has instantly made me feel more at ease and comfortable in the sea and I swam further from the shore than I ever had"
"This session will stay with me - for all the right reasons, loved it, thanks!"
This year I decided I need to swim more.
I run and do yoga, but my low back is hurting, and lots of people say swimming is good for that.
My work is changing too, and because of that I’m looking more closely at how much I spend.
To save paying £4.25 every time to swim at my local pool, the King Alfred, after 10 years of living in Hove I finally wake up to an open secret: the sea's at the bottom of the road, and it’s free.
