Retreats 
 

A retreat is time away. Time to step back from the busyness, distractions and obligations of our daily lives.  It is time and space that you take for yourself; time to re-connect and re- create; to rest, think and heal. 

 

It may be something specific is happening in your life or it may be that you just need a break. 

Whatever the reason, we meet people where they are, offering space for rest and reflection,

sound guidance and support, as requested, in a nurturing, peaceful environment.

Day Retreats

If you do not have the time for a residential retreat, you may like to make a day retreat.

Day retreats run from 10.00 am until 4.30 pm and include a period of  led meditation, prayer or devotion, a one to one spiritual guidance session, lunch, drinks and snacks.  

 

Spiritual guidance

 

One to one spiritual guidance is offered both for those who live locally on a session by session basis and for retreat guests who may book sessions as often as feels appropriate during their retreat. Each session is an hour.

 

Spiritual guidance sessions are a time when a guest can openly explore their relationships with themselves and the divine - however they like to express that. They can bring whatever is on their mind to the session in safety and confidentiality without judgment. We work together to help the discernment process and to connect more deeply with ourselves.  

 
We are here to support and guide you.  Please ask if you do not see what you need.
