Spring Awakening Retreat

11-15 May 2022 - Holistic Mountain Wellness Retreat in Morzine

As part of our back to nature series, this spring awakening retreat is for those ready to nurture the beginning of another cycle of life. If a shift in work or life is urging you to sew fresh seeds, let nature remind you of the promise and potential of a new growing season.

Spring in the Alps is a powerful force. All of a sudden, what was once barren and covered with snow brings forward the most vibrant of life forces. Rushing rivers and glorious waterfalls; new shoots poking out of warming soil; about a million shades of green delighting the eyes and filling our hearts; baby animals finding their feet; and the sound of cowbells echoing through the valleys as herds head into the mountains for their grazing season… It is truly the best time to awaken the senses!

Summer Simmer Retreat

23-27 June 2022 - Holistic Mountain Wellness Retreat in Morzine

As part of our back to nature series, this summer flourishing retreat is for those ready to walk into nature’s alpine garden and bloom large among the wildflowers. Temperatures rise, the days stretch out and all living things open up to be energised by the sun. If you’re ready to take your bold and beautiful place in the vast, interconnected network of living things, let this summer experience call you into the wilderness.

Summer in the Alps is when the mountains gift us greater access, inviting us deeper to marvel and participant in their glory. It’s time to play, time to come to fruition and fulfil your promises to live as you want. At this time of year, we will climb higher, dare to try new things, cool off in lakes and rivers and bask in the present moment.

Autumn Harvest Retreat

12-15 October 2022 -Holistic Mountain Wellness Retreat in Morzine

As part of our back to nature series, this autumn retreat is for those in momentous transition. At this time of year, nature reflects to us a bit of everything – abundant resources, ripe for savouring; colourful celebration; changeable weather; loss, decay and transformation; daylight retreating, temperatures dropping; and wonderous new growth. It is surely the time when we get to feel it all – gratitude, nostalgia, quiet contemplation and joyful steps into the unknown.

Autumn in the Alps does not disappoint in this multifaceted display. The cows descend the mountains, ringing in this time to ready ourselves for winter; the food gets richer and comforts us deeply after a day out in fresh air; and the colours… Well, let’s just say it may be the mountains at their most awe-inspiring.

“I went into the weekend with an open mind, open heart, ready for whatever the elements and Caitlin had in store for us. I wasn't disappointed by either! It was truly a working out for body, mind and soul - revitalising to the core. I feel nourished from the time in nature, new connections and delicious journey from beginning to end. Thank you Caitlin!” - Tara, Business Founder, 33

“Caitlin and her team brought us together as participants in their retreat but turned us into friends. I feel that I could travel with this group in many more occasions. Great Heights Pathways made me realise that a weekend like this can make the difference between ruminating at home on the abstract and taking feelings and reflections into ideas for action.” – Gracia, Art Education Consultant, 50

The Coach

Caitlin Cockerton

A rough-and-tumble Canadian, I was raised on a 100-acre farm in rural Ontario. Time spent wandering through rugged landscapes, swimming in wild waters and riding horses was how my appreciation for nature, space, and adventure was born.

I’ve been coaching and mentoring for six years. I’m a Certified Professional Co-Active Coach, having completed my qualifications with one of the most internationally renowned coaching educators, the Co-Active Training Institute. Moreover, I’m a committed, life-long learner of the philosophies and practices that support human flourishing - constantly adding a diverse set of leadership, mindfulness, and embodiment tools to my work.

I live in a quiet hamlet in the French Alps with my husband, daughter, dog, chickens, and fruitful garden.
