Calming the anxious mind

Mindfulness can be a powerful tool for handling stress and anxiety in everyday life. During the mindfulness and self-care retreat, you will learn the practice of mindfulness, allowing you to find some peace from your busy thoughts.

These simple practices can help you to take things one day at a time so you can learn to focus more easily on the present, rather than worrying about the past or fearing the future.

Vision Boarding

During the retreat, participants will be given the opportunity to create a vision board.

A vision board is a tool to help clarify, concentrate and focus the mind on the journey ahead. It is a collage of images, pictures, and affirmations of your dreams, goals and things that make you happy.

Time for reflection

Participants will be given time and space to reflect on where they have been, where they are now and how they want to go forward. There will be time to be alongside other women who understand.

There will be time to walk in the grounds of the fort. Taking in the beauty and the wonder of what nature has to offer.

Leaning into the support on offer

Being alongside other women, who truly  understand, can be an enriching experience. The retreat is an opportunity for women to be together, share experiences and reconnect to their inner and outer feminine.

Beautiful place to stay.  The retreat felt held by Julie. A good mix of structured mindfulness sessions, reflections, sharing and free time. Julie has so much wisdom, love, and care which feels shared with the group. The retreat felt very relaxed, safe and welcome. Thank you. TD Aug 2017   

The retreat has provided me with an opportunity to progress on my journey in beautiful surroundings.  I have felt nurtured on a physical, emotional and spiritual level. I very much appreciated all the energy that has gone into organizing it, including all the attention to detail. I have really benefited from the input on Buddhism, self-care and the poems have been very beautiful.  Many Thanks, appreciation and love. Sue M Aug 17
