Do you...

- feel overwhelmed with life's demands?

- need a break from it all?

- just need some time-out?

- want to connect meaningfully with like-minded people?

- want to learn new tools and techniques for self-care?

What to expect

Your day will include:

- mindfulness/relaxation techniques

- a silent walking meditation (the venue is part of a country park)

- a look at what self-care means for all of us

- creative activities to help with letting go of stress

- ritual to celebrate the transition from winter to spring

- lunch and refreshments

- a gift bag to take away with you


This retreat will provide you with a pause on life, one from which you will come away with a new perspective on how you look after yourself on different levels. You will learn different techniques that you can easily employ as part of your self-care. You will experience relaxation, visioning, nurturing and ritual. All in one day.

This one-day retreat offers the perfect space for such an experience. You will be watered, fed and nurtured and take part in a range of activities throughout the day.

From time to time, we just need some time-out to take stock, recalibrate and just to chill out. We seem to lead extraordinarily busy lives and unless we’re able to occasionally press ‘pause’ even for just a day, then we run the risk of creating different problems for our long-suffering bodies and minds.

Many people have said to us that they worry that if they take some time to themselves, that their whole world might collapse as they’re trying to hold it all together. And whilst that’s understandable, the truth is that the other option is to continue living life on auto-pilot, tired all the time, unable to think clearly or make decisions aligned with what serves us best.

The Venue

Hellingly Community Hub is a modern, wheelchair-friendly community centre that sits on the edge of the lovely Hellingly Country Park. It is located below the High Weald Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, providing tranquil vistas. Together with plenty of parking spaces and kitchen facilities, this is truly an excellent venue.


Read what some retreat participants have said after coming along to our retreats:

Su made me feel so safe and secure straight away, allowing me to really fulfil my need to relax and de stress. Revisiting and refreshing myself with techniques I am aware of was very useful to ground me and re focus on my well being. I learnt a range of new techniques that were both interesting and effective. Before this retreat I had been unwell for two months and also been suffering with increased anxiety and stress levels. I could not believe the difference this day made, the following day I felt so energised it was as though I had cleared all the negative energy and re started myself, it also allowed me to deal with two highly stressful meetings with a calm and positive attitude. I cannot recommend Su enough and am so looking forward to attend the signature workshop!’ SM

Fantastic!! Thank you so much – today has impacted me more than I ever thought it would. I no longer feel like the swan gliding on top and swimming like hell underneath. Now I’m taking my time to happily glide and sometimes just be still’. SP

Truly wonderful nurturing experience giving validation to my own needs and allowing time to meet those needs. Thank you so much Su for a great day!!’ KT

A wonderful calming day. Really useful tools to take away. Great venue and lunch. Thank you so much Su, for enabling me to experience so much of value to my self care and wellbeing and feeling that I can give myself permission to be ‘self’ish whilst in the company of wonderful people’. LC
