During this time of the pandemic, we are collectively traversing through the territories of death, loss and grief in a way many of us never have done before. Many of us are experiencing loss first hand and all of us are feeling the collective grief and loss on a societal level. On top of it all, many of us are feeling isolated at home during our bereavement without a sense of closure, community or spiritual support. 

Join us for a transformative journey through the transformative challenges of death, loss and grief. During this online day retreat you will be guided through a variety of self care practices and techniques that help to navigate the many layers of grief and to help bring personal closure over a death or loss. Tree Carr and Kye Gambin will provide a safe space and guide the group focusing on transpersonal and compassionate approaches to bereavement through intention setting, meditations, rituals, plant work, breathwork and cathartic practises.

Purchase the event care package for £7 in the ticket section:  includes Cacao and Bobinsana to partake in the day retreat.

As a young adult, Kye spent most of his time as a decorated Rifleman in the Australian infantry, with multiple postings and deployments across Australia and the Globe. After his discharge from service in 2012, Kye found himself unexpectedly navigating the murky waters of depression, loss, and PTSD. This hardship led Kye to seek truth and give-in to universal guidance, which led to his profound spiritual awakening in 2019. Turning to natural healing methods, calling on ancient wisdom and diving into the esoteric arts, Kye now finds himself guiding and inspiring those struggling with substance abuse and destructive personality traits. He creates a safe and loving space for people to pay obeisance to profoundly distressing and disturbing events while stepping into the playful, childlike versions of themselves.


Kye is self-taught in the heart activating magick of Cacao, Breathwork and Experimental Child’s-play, he creates a safe and intimate space where everyone’s fears, hopes and dreams can be explored, unpacked and shared. His experience with Ultra-endurance racing has forged potent mental toughness and fierce drive and determination. Kye believes that by combining ritualistic practises, spiritual introspection and trance-like physical activity; we can all reach self-transcendence.

Under the guidance of Tree Carr, Kye has activated his intuition, deepened his connection with spirituality, consciousness and the Tarot.
