Whether you are starting out together, passing through a crisis, or simply wishing to explore further possibilities in your life, we provide space, guidance and processes to look at yourselves, your relationship, and the bigger picture of your lives. We help you find clarity and peace, as you learn to release old limiting patterns of fear, guilt and conflict. We support you as you increase your ability to communicate with honesty and love, even in stressful situations. And we work with you to explore new ways forward.
Each of you would participate in two 90-minute sessions a day, including relaxation, counselling, guided visualisation, and learning new tools to build vision and take action. The sessions are organised flexibly to suit you: some will be as individuals and some as a couple, depending on your choice.
Everyday there’s also a shorter evening session, with deep relaxation and meditation if you wish. We also include 2 follow-up sessions by phone or Skype.
Retreats are 3 nights (£700). You can add up to 2 extra nights, without sessions, at £100 per night. Prices are per couple.
This includes full board (in separate bedrooms if you prefer) with shared bathroom which has shower but no bath. Meals are vegetarian, freshly made from organic locally sourced ingredients as far as possible. We have high-speed Wi-Fi but please note there is no television.
There are also walks, near the house or to the sea (Carsethorn). In the area, it’s possible to drive to the beach, bird reserve, and forest or hill walks.
