Sometimes we just need a little adventure… This retreat aims to take you out of your life for a few days to give you a full body and mind reset. Our adventuring will take us out into nature as well as inwards, towards our fully embodied center. We will explore our outer and inner landscapes, our bodies, mind and spirits. Our intention is to provide a space to know and nourish yourself, supporting your strength, clarity and vision for the months ahead.
