This is a weekend retreat for men.

Men are often in their heads a lot, hard work, rushing to complete things, keeping stress in? Or retired and unsure of what you are and where your place is?

This retreat will help you connect with your emotions. A weekend of time away, time for you!


Retreat to deluxe accommodation, nutritious meals and workshops for the body and mind, with views of mountains and tranquility of the gardens will help to take the pressure off and let you relax.

A weekend of powerful yet easy to do exercises, combined with Silent time will greatly enhance the mind, body and help you to connect with yourself.


With the silence as part of the retreat you will get the space to process feelings and gain a deeper understanding of yourself. This emotional awareness can lead to greater emotional stability and resilience in the face of life’s challenges.


You will be thought the practice of Qi Gong and Tai Chi, simple yet very powerful form of exercise and healing. 5 Tibetan Rites Yoga is also on the itinerary – an easy to follow yoga with 5 Asanas that you can continue practicing and getting benefits from after the retreat.


Learn grounding and breathing techniques, as well as Japa Meditation for a positive focus and Sound Bowls Meditation that will leave you relaxed and feeling free.

To bring the retreat to a close and help you carry all you have learned out into the every-day life, we will have a fire ceremony where everyone can burn all the notes and let it all go. If they choose to.
