Autumn 2017 Programme

We welcome you for 5 days of uninterrupted bliss! Raw food prep classes with Kate Magic, raw dining by Anna Middleton, morning yoga classes, talks from visiting guests, evening discussion groups, plus a day trip walking on the Brecon Beacons, will mean your days are as full as you want them to be. This is not a traditional detox retreat! This week is about having fun and indulging yourself while still eating clean and healthy, and doing so in the company of like-minded individuals who completely understand your preference for green juice over red wine, and Sun Salutations over cigarettes.

It’s over all too quickly. We ask you to vacate the premises by midday. We will serve you breakfast, and also provide you with a goody bag for your journey home.

Our aim with the retreat is to send you into winter with that raw magic glow of confidence, serenity, wisdom and graciousness, that only comes from really taking time out to be at one with yourself and nurture yourself with the healthiest foods on the planet.

The Evening Activities

We will bring a selection of movies that you may choose to watch in the TV room at any time – movies on the related theme of health eg The Sacred Science, Take Back Your Power, Cowspiracy, Forks Over Knives, Raw for 30 Days, Vegucated.

On Friday, we will host an opening party, with an Intentional Equinox Ceremony where we will meditate on what the previous six months has brought us and where the next cycle of our lives may lead us.

On Saturday, we will be treated to an amazing sound healing bath from Brigid Brightfire.

We will host a sharing circle on Sunday and Monday nights. We will give the group a theme to discuss, which will hopefully evolve into some lively and mind-expanding conversations.

Sunday’s theme is – Gratitude. What does gratitude mean to you? What do you have to be grateful for? Do you have a gratitude practice in your day? What differences do you notice when you operate from gratitude?

Monday’s theme is – Positive Futures. How do we imagine the world for the next generation? In what realistic ways could our society evolve to be more aware and conscious? What needs to happen within the next couple of decades to avert disaster? Do you have any great ideas or inventions that you know would be easy to implement that would make a big difference to people’s lives? How can we go about taking action now to make those futures a reality?

On Tuesday, it’s a 5-course Dinner Party from our star chef, Anna Middleton.

If you’ve been to any of Kate’s pop-up dinner parties, you know what to expect, as this will be along very similar lines. Gourmet cuisine of the highest standard, and generous portions at that. Cocktails, starters, entrees, desserts, and after-dinner elixirs, all beautifully presented, and guaranteed to leave you feeling high on life.

 

 

 

Everything is optional! If you prefer to just take off for a walk or stay reading in your room at any point, you are most welcome. It’s your holiday, and you are free to come and go as you please.

There is an outdoor hot tub for guests’ use. We will also have massage therapists available if you wish to book a treatment.
