In the world of Business and Academia, we need to be able to concentrate on the work in hand. To concentrate is to be mindfully aware of what we are doing. This is the reason companies and universities train their staff in mindfulness. They reap the rewards! People who have any form of mental health issues: memory loss for whatever reason, Parkinson's disease or senile dementia benefit from the regular practice of Mindfulness. It promotes neuroplasticity, the ability of the brain to change throughout an individual's life. On a metaphysical level, Mindfulness is a way of getting to know who you really are: Consciousness. It takes time to develop the practice of being continuously in the present moment when you are aware of your immense presence in the Universal here and the Eternal now.

These tailor-made therapeutic holidays take place in our venue, not far from the sea mid-way between Bournemouth and Poole. It is just about a ten-minute car ride to the sea or the town centres of Bournemouth or Poole where you will find a variety of shops and eateries. The famously upmarket area of Sandbanks in Poole is approximately a 5 minute drive from Penn Hill and a 15 minute drive from Bournmouth with its white sandy beaches, palms and stunning coastline. A visit to Poole Quay with its many fine restaurants, boats and marina and under cover shopping centre makes for a very pleasant day out. A ferry from Sandbanks can also be taken across to Brownsea Island.
