Within us all is an abundant caring compassionate presence, full of unconditional love and tenderness. Yet how does that equate with a world full of conflict, war, fear, terror, abuse and suffering. We may all experience at times great suffering, lack of love, a spiritual emptiness within, conflict at home, work or with ourselves and see great abuse around us and in the newspapers and maybe to us personally.

So where is the Compassion? Where is the Peace? Where is the Love? Is anything really possible without being too ethereal? How do we find that unconditional love inside and outside of us?

These retreats offer an introduction to the path of the Deep Heart, to access that deep Love within ourselves, unravelling without judgement all that appears to get in the way, to give us an opportunity to open the doors to our own Heart Consciousness to help bring Unconditional Love to ourselves, others and the environment – bringing deep healing.

Our spiritual retreats are only very small groups (6 or less) and are a mixture of teaching simple “take-home” skills along with opportunities to practice simple supported meditations.

You will have your own room (unless you want to share), delicious home cooked meals (special diets possible) and lots of individual care and attention if needed. All the food we serve is organic and homemade where possible and we use local produce, some of which we grow locally. We have a well renowned reputation for creating delicious plant based meals where our omnivorous guests don’t even miss meat or dairy! See our Reviews

Over the retreat there are a variety of daily group led exercises, teaching simple tools and one-to-one support sessions to bring deep relaxation, personal awareness and access to that peace within that we all crave amongst our busy lives. There are organised activities during the day, yet still with plenty of space for time to yourself, to rest, or to explore the beautiful sea and coast here in Devon, or relaxation time with the other retreat guests. The retreat has plenty of activities, yet feels spacious, relaxed with no rushing or “have-to’s”.

(We remain neutral though and do not teach or focus on any particular religion or spiritual path).
