As I leave the ‘Space to Grow’ team this week I’m feeling deep gratitude. With an open heart I journeyed through the week of meditation, somatic healing, yoga and stunning nature walks. Feeling grounded and totally immersed in the moment as we shared, laughed, cried, sang and danced. I built deep, long lasting connections to all attending the retreat. ‘Space to Grow’ and Arillas in Corfu has a way of opening your heart, capturing your spirit and transforming your soul.

I booked this trip quite last minute, knowing I needed a break, a retreat and to be held in space by someone when I am usually the one holding the space. Having known James for many years I trusted him and knew he had a wealth of experience behind him that would no doubt shine through in the time we spent together and that I would feel safe and held within the container he created and he delivered with grace, kindness, empathy, humour and an un-confrontational, soft yet powerful masculinity. Each day offered a new experience logistically, physically, spiritually and emotionally. From connecting deeply with nature in the olive groves, exploring sacred sites, swimming in the clear turquoise waters found by hiking to hidden coves, to diving deeply into our inner world with breath work, somatic experiencing (led by Margit a beautiful and talented space holder, assisting James in providing a wonderful and full retreat experience), meditations and inner journeys. Absolutely transformational: the practices, support and guidance given allowed deep inner shifts and realisations, creating space for new personal growth. Whilst a new sisterhood was formed in the group of strangers brought together and sharing not only a stunning villa but inner truths, deep revelations, tears, laughter, delicious food and beautiful places. James has created an absolutely incredible retreat from the knowledge and experience of his own explorations of the island and the practices he uses. With allergies and food intolerances James went to great lengths to ensure I was catered for and this is not and easy task and I am eternally grateful for the care taken. The deepest love and gratitude for simply stunning experience. Thank you.

I had been drawn to James and his online presence for a few years and when I saw he was offering retreats, a deep spark of resonance settled into my body. After having gone through many big courses and retreats involving big, cathartic processes, I was drawn to the gentle, embodied energy James brings and the thread of nature and softness he weaves through his offerings. I wanted to rest deeply into myself and have some space to listen to my Soul. I was also really wanting to be held in a space by a male facilitator. This is often so powerful for me as a woman who's still building trust and working on wounds around the masculine (inside and out). The retreat really exceeded what I expected and was looking for. The days were rich, but not too full. The food was incredible, creating this sense of abundance and nourishment. The practices we were guided through by James and Margit, brought both a depth and a gentleness, allowing a nurturing quality to be felt and a spaciousness to emerge from inside. I'm returning home having rediscovered a place within myself I had been overriding with so much doing and analysing. I feel reconnected to my body. My mind feels calmer. I feel more clear about my next steps. I feel re- rooted into trust and love for myself and life- elements that had been somehow wavering without me knowing. Corfu is a such a magical place for this all to take place. The people, the land and the ocean add immense value to the whole experience. It was really special sharing space with a group of women I didn't know. Being able to journey the 5 days alongside others who are also o the path of finding themselves, to witness and be witnessed, added a potent and profound element to what we all moved through. I also found space to be by myself when needed and to take time when I needed to reflect. I really do feel forever changed from this week of sheer yumminess and self connection. I cannot recommend these retreats enough. If you're feeling burnt out, heavy and unsure of how to meet the path you're on, or if you simply want a beautiful, gentle but alchemical space to be held in, outside of all the busyness of your day to day life.
