A break away in a timeless setting to get back in touch with what matters most.
Our setting for Vision and Vitality 2019 is a venue that is close to my heart in the Cotswolds.
The Guildhouse is a simple but stunning Grade II listed home away from home tucked in the Vale of Evesham with breathtaking views over the countryside.
Set in the timeless village of Stanton with it's picture-book Cotswold stone cottages, it first captured by heart in 2005 when I hosted a retreat there. Coming back year after year for retreats before and after I had the children, the Guildhouse is home to many happy memories and is a truly transformational space.
So much is possible when you take yourself away somewhere beautiful and truly immerse yourself in an experience away from the rigours of everyday.
Nourishment for mind body and soul
I get so much joy from holding a space where you can feel truly nurtured and supported to develop yourself and your business in inspirational surroundings. With good food and good company almost anything is possible!
We will be joined on this retreat by the lovely Bex Partridge of Botanical Tales. Not only is Bex a stunning floral artist and kindred creative, nature-loving spirit but she is also a rather fabulous chef, and will be cooking delicious vegetarian food for us over the two days.
connect, be inspired, and tap into your authentic wisdom
The beauty of a retreat is that you have time away from the hustle of everyday to reconnect with what really matters. Morning and evening optional yoga and meditation sessions are available to you if you’d like to give your body and mind a real treat and tap in more deeply to your inner wisdom.
At the end of our workshop sessions on day one you will also have plenty of time before supper to enjoy our beautiful surroundings, take a walk, take a rest or take time to get to know your fellow participants.
