Why should I attend your retreat?

Our programme has been meticulously designed over a two year period to help people to transform their lives. It draws upon our studies of neuroscience at Harvard as well as psychology and mental health from The University of Liverpool and wisdom we have gained from cherished friends and influencers.

What is included in the cost of the retreat?

As well as the programme itself, included in the cost of the retreat is your accommodation, plus meals and drinks for the duration of the retreat. You'll also receive a pack to take home with you, which contains various tools to help you practice what you've learned on the retreat. Travel to and from the retreat is not included, but we will provide full details on how to arrive by road or rail.

How many people attend each retreat?

Our retreats are intimate events, with just ten guests gathering to nourish their souls and their bodies. We find that this is just the right number of people to get the right balance. Small enough for each person to benefit and to feel special, large enough to create a spirit of community, with the sharing of stories and wisdom.

Do you offer your programme to businesses as well as individuals?

Yes, our Wellness at Work programme helps large or small businesses to reduce stress and sick days of their staff as well as increase their productivity. Click here for full details.
