.

Just imagine waking up slowly, with rays of warm sunshine peaking through the shutters… You take a full body stretch + eventually roll out of the soft white covers, moving your body towards your bedroom door… There you find a warm drink + a nutritious morning snack, to gently wake you up + nourish you at the start of the day

.

You faintly smell incense already burning + hear the soft sounds of Tibetan singing bowls… Or maybe it is the deeply resonant chant of Om quietly carried upon the air to your sleepy chamber… It is the background music that is gently moving your energy, already encouraging you into the healing space that you are about to step into…

.

But there is no rush… You can take your time… You sip the warming tonic, break-the-fast, allow your body to absorb all the goodness…

.

One by one everyone starts to emerge into the space, quietly coming together into the light, white, open barn… You smile at each other as you take your places on yoga mats + meditation cushions… but you are still waking slowly, still honouring what you need… and that’s more than OK…

.

You sit in silent meditation, focusing on the breath… Whatever comes up in this space is absolutely fine, it is a safe space… You have complete permission to just be yourself, be however you need to be, working with a beautiful mix of yin yoga, breath work, guided meditation, visualisation, yoga nidra + Chinese Medicine wisdom…

.

You barely move off the mat – laying or sitting or fully supported – nothing is too challenging, nothing is too much… You don’t have to be an expert at anything, you don’t have to do anything you don’t want to, there is no pressure, no perfectionism… It is all super gentle, mindfully healing + beautifully chilled…

.

You then go to the outdoor brunch table on the bright warm terrace… It’s groaning under the weight of all the colourful produce – the fruit, the veggies, the French delights + you get stuck in, your body welcoming the vegan-vegetarian goodness…

.

Lunch + dinner are a purely joyful repeat – including delicious dessert + a warming nightcap (with tiny treats) in the evening…

.

And when your time is your own… you rest, sleep, breathe, read, journal, lay down on the sun loungers, take a dip in the salt water pool, listen to inspirational podcasts, chat to the other people (or not), walk for miles in the countryside amongst the fields of smiley yellow sunflowers…

.

Whatever YOU need, whatever your body wants, whatever your soul craves, whatever your spirit desires…

.

THIS is sacred rest + it is ALL your own…

.

So, will you join me? Will you honour yourself + the deep, transformational rest that you are seeking?

As someone who travels alone a LOT (read: all the time), I know how tricky single supplements can be… So for this retreat I have decided to have one rate per person of £799, whether you have a room to yourself, or whether you share with your sister, your bestie, your mum, or your mastermind buddy…

.

However, there are only 6 en-suite twin rooms available – so the only thing I wholeheartedly request is, that if you do come with someone that you could share a room with, I would please kindly ask that you DO share, thereby honouring the opportunity for as many beautiful souls to attend as possible… UPDATE: only 2 rooms left in farmhouse (not en-suite, but shared family-style bathroom, with beautiful roll-top bath)

.

And if you are travelling by yourself, then I totally get it, because I do it super often – it’s all good, you’re not alone, I’ve got you, no worries…

.

Additionally, there are other rooms available in the main farm house, away from the main retreat barn, but these are NOT en-suite + they share a family-style bathroom… Rooms will be allocated on a first come, first serve basis – so get in quick! Also grab a longer payment plan by signing up straight away, this month! UPDATE: only 2 rooms left in farmhouse (not en-suite, but shared family-style bathroom, with beautiful roll-top bath)
