Connect and listen to your inner voice

Treat yourself this Summer Solstice to a day of mindfulness and inspiration in the beautiful heart of Exmoor National Park where the Timber Cabin will be our haven. With a blend of home-cooking, storytelling, a walk, Gong bath, fresh air – including some solo time in Nature, you will come away feeling re-charged, re-vitalised and ready for the path ahead.

Deeply relaxing with space to come back to my centre … stillness, flow, silence, gentleness, authenticity, effortless – thank you.

This summer retreat offers you the space to listen to your inner voice and time to connect with what is important to you. Most importantly, all participants are provided with the space, inspiration and permission to open up to meaningful experience and new perspectives.

What to expect from a Gong Bath:

Gong Baths are soothing, relaxing, rejuvenating, cleansing and holistic.
You are not expected to do anything, just to be as comfortable as possible.
This is your time to relax and release stress – to enjoy the magic of the Gong Space.

You can receive a Gong Bath either lying down or seated on a chair. Using vibrational sound, a gong bath is a sound massage for the body and mind (wonderful for those who like the idea of a massage without taking off any clothes!) For more information on the Gong Space and benefits of Gongbaths please click here.

The gong bath was amazing! I had no idea it could make those sounds – the best experience I’ve had in a long time and definitely in my top ten of all time.

Why mindfulness?

Mindfulness is about actively paying attention to what is actually happening in the moment, in order to respond with integrity. This enhances our ability to feel happier and more confident in today’s ever increasing dynamic and complex world.

Evidence suggests that those who practice mindfulness techniques are more resilient and more emotionally intelligent – better able to ‘read’ themselves and others. Those who are more mindful have a greater capacity to flex their own mental and emotional states, which benefits themselves as well as their communities and organisations. This retreat has been created to enable people to become more relaxed, more trusting and consequently more authentic, emotionally intelligent and resilient.

By taking responsibility for our personal wellbeing it becomes easier to open up to life and it’s opportunities, to reconnect to our innate creativity and enthusiasm. It also helps us to develop greater sustainability, prevent burnout, as well as improving our ability to communicate with clarity.
