Wild-ness Retreats

Immersive Lifestyle Medicine Retreats

A New Approach to Medical Education

Wild-Ness facilitates life-enhancing wilderness retreats in the Highlands for clinicians and therapists seeking to make positive changes in their life, whilst at the same time nurturing their professional development.

How does it work?

The retreats are delivered by a community of doctors and holistic therapists, offering a unique blend of lifestyle medicine, evidence-based ancient therapies, creative flow activities, and immersion in nature.

What are the benefits to me?

Our aim is to create a safe space in which you can rest and recover, increase your sense of agency for your own wellbeing, and learn about new techniques and local resources for supporting people with long-term conditions.

The Principle

Lifestyle Medicine is an emerging medical specialty which uses evidence-based interventions focusing on behaviour change, to prevent, treat, and reverse long-term conditions primarily caused by lifestyle factors.

The Purpose

  • Create a safe space for clinicians & therapists to reflect on personal health & values
  • Raise awareness of new strategies and resources for supporting people with long-term conditions
  • Hear inspirational stories from members of the local community with lived experience of recovery
