A place for you to rest and reflect, free from pressure. Be looked after, walk in beautiful countryside, maybe spend time with someone who will listen and help make sense of things that are happening in your life.
Your retreat is tailored to suit you: relaxed, intermediate, or a truly intensive full programme which may include counselling, meditation, relaxation, visualisation, emotional release and healing, developing your thinking skills, and exploring creativity.
Meals are rich, vegetarian or vegan, freshly prepared from ingredients that are organic and locally sourced where possible.
See website for details, and do get in touch!

Relaxed retreat

With the relaxed retreat, you will have space and time to rest, relax and be looked after. You can take walks by the sea or in Mabie forest, which is a short drive from here. You can enjoy our peaceful garden, sit in the sunroom and read, draw or listen to music. In the evenings you may wish to join us for meditation.

Intensive retreat

In this retreat we help you to explore your life, become free of painful past experiences, understand and release emotion, and learn to question unhelpful thoughts and beliefs.

Through this process, which includes learning meditation, you will learn to enjoy being in the present moment, with the calmness and clarity that this brings.

Mostly it’s about getting in touch with the fact that your true self is greater than your thoughts, feelings, beliefs and stories, and discovering that you have more choices.
