Creacon is delighted to welcome back Michelle Gupta for her fabulous Tai Chi and Meditation retreats. Michelle is very excited to invite you to join her for an all-inclusive weekend of Tai Chi, Chi Kung, Meditation and more.

We’ve enjoyed eight, fully-booked Tai Chi weekends with Michelle so far with a number of guests returning again and again. Places are limited so book now to avoid disappointment.

Everyone is welcome and no experience is required to enjoy and benefit from mindful meditation and movement – Tai Chi, Chi Kung and mindful walking – all inspired by the stunning, luxurious and tranquil surroundings of Creacon Wellness Retreat. Be kind to your body and mind with these flowing, slow and gentle movements which are suitable for all ages, shapes and sizes! And if you’re new to meditation, rest assured that each session will be relaxed and guided. We’ll also be exploring the theme of “Loving Kindness” and techniques including meditations, self-Indian Head massage and a nourishing Tibetan Singing Bowl session.

If you fancy a weekend of ‘kindfulness’, serene surroundings, refreshing greenery, open spaces, room to breathe, an energy boost, deluxe accommodation, nutritious, gourmet ‘Soulful Food’ meals designed by a master chef as well as a de-cluttered and refreshed mind and body – then this is the weekend for you!!

Retreat includes:

  • 2-nights en-suite, deluxe accommodation.
  • Full board – with x6 delicious ‘Soulful Food’ gourmet meals. Including tea and coffee.
