Want to press pause and rest in the space? Sometimes a short break can revitalise our energy and reconnect us with our true selves. This realigning gives us the clarity to return to daily life with resilience and new tools to use.

Our retreats are experiential events that take many different forms – from one day local mini-breaks to weekend regional getaways or even international retreats.

Retreats are as dynamic or as quiet as you like. We have a range of activities from reflective personal practices to creative workshops, yoga classes, meditation groups and mindful eating experiences. We recommend a post retreat one on one debriefing with one of our team which we offer at a retreat discounted rate.

Upcoming Retreats

Retreat Dubai
28 – 30 September
No need to take leave – this local retreat runs from Thursday night to Saturday evening in Dubai!

Following the wonderful experience of our first local retreat at the XVA Art Hotel in April we are so thrilled to be returning at the end of September to bring a new retreat programme to this welcoming and quiet space. This time around we will be exploring Helen’s creative and reflective Authentic Living programme alongside mindful meditation.

“Until you make the unconscious conscious, it will direct your life and you will call it fate.”

– Carl Jung

We will begin with a mindful curiosity of our own stories and build an awareness of how these narratives shape our physical, emotional and intuitive lives. The weekend retreat, in the inspiring XVA Art Hotel space, will include mindful activities including restorative yoga, meditation, mindfulness learning, creative journelling, mindful eating, walking and more. This retreat is for exploring and connecting with your authentic self and will help you make the space to do that.

“Consciousness is a vast ocean and thinking is the waves & ripples on the surface of the ocean. Every wave & ripple has a very short lived life – it is very fleeting.”
