About the event

This is a unique retreat, with a programme that has been developed by an experienced clinical psychologist. It has been designed to help you relax and recharge on the day and also leave with a range of psychological skills and insights that will help you connect with what's important to you and overcome any internal barriers to living the life you long for. You will leave with the strategies you need to develop new habits, feel more confident and content and create a better balance in your life over the next year and beyond. 

Special offer during May: Bring a friend and save £15. Use discount code FRIEND15 when purchasing two tickets.

Would you like to:

1. Relax your body by better understanding your nervous system and gaining evidence-based strategies (one example being breathwork practices) that you can use to change your physiology and help yourself feel calmer. We will also take a mindful walk around the sculpture park.

2. Rebalance the way you spend your time by tuning in to what's important to you and what a rich and full life would look like, then gaining psychological skills to address the internal barriers that are holding you back. We will be sharing evidence-based strategies to overcome the main ways that we get in our own way. We are also including a 2-hour "Sculptural Vessels" clay workshop with local artist Sally Storr, specially chosen to help you move out of your busy mind and focus on your senses, notice what it's like to be more present in the moment and tune into the more creative parts of yourself.  Sally will fire and glaze your vessel after the retreat, for your later collection. (More details here.)

3. Recharge your sense of vitality so that you can leave with new ideas, intentions and a sense of purpose to create a more fulfilling life and feel more content. We will talk about the science of decision-making and focus on the things many of us struggle with like saying yes to requests that we'd like to say no to, getting overwhelmed with responsibilities and tasks, and feeling stuck in jobs, situations or relationships that no longer serve us. We will use techniques from Acceptance and Commitment Therapy to help you identify and overcome any internal barriers to your proposed changes. You will leave with a personalised map and, we hope, a new sense of vitality to help you reach your goals for 2024.
