A Retreat for You and about You

Retreats allow us to physically and mentally get away from our daily roles and routines, literally have a ‘re-treat’, a break”.  They are an opportunity to have space and time to recharge our batteries, away from the busyness and our usual distractions, in a supportive and beautiful environment.  We have time to reflect and focus on ourselves, our thoughts, and feelings which can then help us to regain perspective on our lives and give clarity to make day to day decisions. The experience can empower and inspire us to gain new ideas to practise or to think about in order to reconnect to our inner selves and our spiritual lives bringing more calm and fulfilment.


The focus of the retreats is on Enhancing Self-Care and Well-being The retreats provide an exploration into way to effectively deal with the personal and professional pressures of life by building spiritual skills into your self-care and personal development programme. Participants will have an opportunity to discover or further develop skills including mindfulness, resilience, self-compassion, meditation and relaxation.
