CULTURE
The Gut is a community for collective pause and immersion. Through talks, retreats, meals, and gatherings, we make the sharing of knowledge ADVENTUROUS and beautifully delicious.
THE GUT is about the ritual of coming together around ´the table´, be it on a mountain, a rug, around a fire, a kitchen counter, or digitally.
Via talks, dinners, retreats and gatherings, our desire is to make healing insightful, playful, beautiful and delicious.
Coming from personal challenges and journeys of self exploration, we learnt that by addressing the emotional, physical, and spiritual, we address environmental and cultural health as a whole. 
As it is important that we maintain a microbial balance within our guts, it is key that we exist in equilibrium with our ecosystem. We have become disconnected from our surroundings. We need to ground and reconnect.
Through spiritually and scientifically rooted practices, THE GUT encourages healthy living and offline healing.
We team up with the most creative and progressive minds, to bring food, health and culture to the table.
We host city dinners and events, and both online and offline talks to empower each other towards healthier and more fulfilling lives.
We team up with chefs, herbalists, nutritionists, scientists, writers, thinkers, artists and tribes, to bring cross-culturally relevant conversations, and wonderful memories to life.

THE GUT loves good company, organic food and wine, tinctures and teas, soil, sea, and fire, biodynamic farming and permaculture, hiking, surfing, yoga and wild swimming.
COMING UP
I have suffered from stomach issues since I was a teenager. The first doctor I saw was our family GP who said it was down to my stress and anxiety. I dismissed this, not understanding the mind-body connection. Having spent years seeing every possible specialist, I since realised he was right, the brain does influence the gut, and vice versa. 

I learnt about the vagus nerve and how it constricts when agitated. I learnt about food and that vital saying ‘we are what we eat’. What I put into my body affects my wellbeing, as much as my thoughts and feelings do. The further I researched, the more I learnt about interconnection and how the quality of the soil — from the food that we eat — affects our guts. 

I spent the past decade immersed in refining ‘the journey’ for guests through sensory events. Struggling with my own imbalances and fascinated by the mind-body connection, I closed my production company, and redirected my passion for healing, and bringing people together through the experience of a new journey, THE GUT

My family’s tradition of Sunday lunch, with all the characters who populate our table, has played a huge part in my education. Our Italian and Australian heritage perfectly marries feeding and warmth, and has deeply rooted us into British culture. THE GUT is simply following this thread, bringing people together through food and conversation. We are family, supporting each other, and when our guests join us at the ‘table’, they instantly become part of the family, giving meaning and strength to what we do.

None of this would be without my family of origin and close friends, who help influence and shape THE GUT. Petersham Nurseries are a huge inspiration, and continue to be an essential partner. My beautiful friend and spiritual ally Billie De Melo co-curates workshops and retreats. studio.xyz allows us to realise our wildest dreams, and mentors us on what can sometimes be a daunting adventure.
