A place for you to rest and reflect, free from pressure. Be looked after, walk in beautiful countryside, 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, exploring creativity, even looking at your future differently...
Meals are vegetarian or vegan, freshly prepared from ingredients that are organic and locally sourced where possible.
See website for details, and do get in touch!
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.
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.
Includes: 5 nights. Two 90-minute sessions a day, and a shorter evening session. 2 follow-up sessions by phone or skype.
The intermediate retreat suits you if the full intensive retreat is not needed. Do get in touch so we can see if this is the case and how we can best assist you in your journey.
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 or by the woodburning stove in the cozy sitting room, and read, draw or listen to music. In the evenings you may wish to join us for meditation.
