About the event


Cover letter from Jacob:

"Why retreat?

When you can grow. When you can develop. Expand into abundance!

This is an advance, a progression. This is a challenge. This is stepping out of every day life, into nature, to reset and recover the deerper parts of ourselves.

Incredible food alchemy and nutrition, well taught somatic exercise and memorable inspiration of physical and non-phsysical forms should be in abundance - YES! - in order to create safe and explorative transformation. All these things should be part of a natural shift or journey.

Also, a connection to nature, and raw nature of things, can unlock further depths of creativity and strength we felt were lost. Sustained exposure to our own true nature.

The OhmBrella Project is designed to empower, inspire, detoxify and re-align you with your highest self.

To help you discover and develop your blueprint self. The Project will hold space for true self realisation.

No shamanry - no singular practice - no cultural mis-approporaition - no lacking of intregity. Jacob has spent nearly a decade accumulating the knowledge, contacts and expeiernce to lead you through the most fulfilling natural., English woodland journey he can curate. You will be exposed to the best teachers and guides that Jacob has the honour to involve, to help you absorb skills, knowledge and an unbreakable sense of purpose, from within the self.

You can't know what you don't yet know. It's in the unkown where we grow the most. Outside the comfort zone. 

If you've got it all figured out in life, perhaps this is isnt for you.

If this is reonating with you...please read on, and apply within."


This is not a retreat, it’s an advance.

This is development of mind, body and spirit.

This is discovery and realisation.

This is growth.

This is the OhmBrella-Project.


This Summer 2023, take part in a unique, natural experience: To shift mindsets, unlock creativity and replenish the body.

The OhmBrella Experience brings together bushcraft, forestry, conservation, holistic wellbeing, art and food alchemy, into the first experience of its kind. 

10 people only at a time will experience the journey.

Weeks will be released three at a time, with the first dates coming out for:

 July 2nd to 9th 2023.

A fully immerisive schedule, will keep the mind, heart and muscles happy.

Participants will be exposed to a variety of off grid living knowledge and taught ancient naturopathic techniques of wellness and longevity, in the setting of an ancient coppice and conifer woodland in Shropshire, England. This is the home of OhmBrella and runs as a conservation site for nature learning and development of human creative expression.

The retreat is focused on inspiration and empowerment of mind, body and spirit. The space will allow you to reflect, restore, repair, and expand your horizons. Apart from an array of detoxyfying and embodiment practices available in workshop and class format, you will collaborate to create pathways, structures, communal areas and ancient forest living technology as part of your supervised time. While the rest you engage in movement sessions, talks, forest bathing, meditations, sound baths and much more.

Led by (up to 5) practitioners, coaches, teachers and guides of ancient living, mental health, spiritual health, forestry, food and conservation; you will have the opportunity to learn and decide what creativity, sustainability, life purpose and wellbeing truly mean for you, and how you want to embody them.

You will also work with an artist from our "line up" to realise a common goal and create a functional art piece in the forest. Involvement here artistically will stand as part of your legacy and contribution, and will embody the philosophies you learn along your weeks journey.

The experience won't just change your mind STATE. It’s designed to help you find the next PHASE or STAGE. The curated journey will help you develop the natural tools and techniques within to embody your next stage.


Jacob, founder of OhmBrella, has spent seven years arranging to allow this vision to take flight, and these first groups of people will be part of building the community around OhmBrella, and work directly alongside Jacob throughout, in the creation of this world - a celebration of our connection to nature and a protected centre for human alchemy and creativity. If you want to know more about Jacob, please ask away - but he'll be guiding the whole show, and focusing on queslity control of every part of your experience that he has curated.

You will also be joined and supervised by site operator Alec "Eden" Schiemann - an experienced conservationist, arborist and landscaper, with incredible talent for mycology, no dig food operations and rewilding. Alec has already an intimate relationship with Badger woods and will be guiding the clearing and forestry work, lacing it with knowledge, inspiration and wisdom. Alec will be on site throughout and is there to teach you all he can during your time with us.

The Food Alchemist owner, Matt, will be onsite organising and fulfilling the food experiences and keeping everyone fed. Matt has a thriving streetfood business, was fine dining trained as a chef from a young age and has been used to working on micro nutrient rich diets for athletes and professional sportpersons. This is a particularly exciting collaboration, as Jacob and Matt have been fine tuning their cooperative food experiences for the last six months. The aim in to create unique visual and sensory eating experiences, while keeping the food sourcing and prep to the highest level of nutritional standards. There will be superfoods flying, fermentations and live cultures flowing, live open fire cooking and some extra special magic tricks along the way, that ony a chef can get away with. 

Jacob's master guide and mentor of the last five years will join each group to tune in, give a talk and provide her incredible wisdom and outlook, and perhaps she'll has some other tricks up her sleeve too! Her name will kept private for the time being to protect integrity.

There will be other members of Jacob’s team on site helping to create flow and texture to the experience, as well as practitioners giving you the odd treatment here and there. For more information or special requests from our team on the subject of massage, reiki, sound or psychotherapy, just contact us in advance. We will have First Aiders on site, but also visitations from qualified mental health nurses and practitioners for light observation and feedback work, and for any urgent matters too, and just because these particular friends of Jacob just really want to be involved!


Comfortable glamping insuring excellent nights sleep.

A luxury bell tent accommodation will be provided for each guest, with a little storage and enough room to have some privacy too. More visuals will be provided once bookings are made.

The outdoor showers are hot and powered by rainwater.

The toilets are composting units. All arrivals will be taught how showers and toilets work during orientation.


Fully catered high nutrition detoxifying food. All diets can be accounted for specifically and a nutritional form can be requested on application.  

3 meals per day and unlimited infused water at 'hydration station'.

There will also be bottomless tea and mushroom coffees available at intervals, along with Musrhoom tea ceremonies from Richard Enion of Enrichd! More information on that here - 


We ask you to put your devices for connecting with the outside world into our safe keeping while you are with us. We do allow you to check your devices daily, but we strongly encourage against this unless for emergencies. We can also provide a contact for your loved ones, in case they need to get hold of you in an emergency. This is much for the fellow companion as it is for protection of nature. But of course, to ensure the depth and richness of experience goes undisturbed.


One artist at a time at least from our collective will be on site creating installations and structures.

Your group will be creating pathways and communal areas to interact with the art pieces, some of which may be cabins and hanging structures.

Liam Hopkins, founder of Lazerian is one artist in residence, known for his geometric animals, and landscape installations, will be stealing the show with his plans it seems. (READ MORE ABOUT LIAM HERE)

Members of RCA and LCC alumni, creating installations as bathrooms, toilets and integrated artworks among the trees. (READ MORE ABOUT DORA HERE)

Sam Apley of Circus Kinetics among the team. Sam has been an integral part of the UK makers community for 20 years, building artworks and interactive areas at an endless list of festivals such as Burning Man, Secret Garden Party and Glastonbury. (TBC)

Angry Dan will be leading us on a mural-making journey (TBC)

Singer/songwriter Sam Lee story telling and songwriting expedition, to bring out the story within you. (READ MORE ABOUT SAM HERE)

All of this will be experienced across the separate weeks as the overall OhmBrella journey grows and welcomes you to join in.

There will be briefings on this artisan part of the journey, on the days that you’ll be working on your piece, and regular briefiengs on the clearing, forestry and concervation work you'll be engaged with. There will be no limit to how much you are allowed to achieve in this packed week, and you'll be given as many of the tools and directions as posssible to help you achieve your tasks.

As there is a need for some mystery, and lack of clarity in format, simply in order to create a rich experience for al participants, it is requested that once booked you do not share any of the finer details online on social media or otherwise for the protection of other participants. We have however provided an extensive list here of all things you will have the oppportunity or be directly exposed to during your time on site.
