With the modern-day professional pressure to always be ‘on’, it doesn’t leave much time for self reflection. Lisa Connell tells of how checking in to a weekend retreat helped her check back in with herself.
“The retreat specialises in relaxing yoga and meditative getaways — perfect for sceptical city types like ourselves… From the moment we stepped inside the lodge, we felt immediately welcomed and soothed.”
Day 1: We are here for a one night/two day stay to discover what the Creacon Wellness experience feels like so that we can share it with you here on Happy Magazine.
Day 2: After an absolutely silent night tucked up in our comfortable beds at Creacon, we both woke before our 7am alarm this morning feeling refreshed – how wonderful.
On arrival at Creacon, we were immediately impressed by the manicured grounds and the imposing façade of this country manor style premises.
On entering the little driveway, a cute Buddha welcomed me with a smile from the garden, and as I parked, my eye was drawn to a sign that said, ‘it’s a wonderful life.’ My usual frantic adrenalin immediately began to settle itself.

Break those busy patterns. As the old saying goes, ‘if you are too busy to meditate, that’s when you really need to meditate’. After a rest, you return to your tasks with a clearer mind. You get a lot more done and your brain is in much better shape when it’s had a break.

“I highly recommend the 6 month retreat program at Creacon as there were so many wonderful and enlightening benefits that I have experienced on a personal level.” – Kathy
“In the real world, I had been in therapy for years due to depression and had major self-confidence issues. I have gone through huge inner transformations during my six months at Creacon. I never dreamed it would be possible for the traumatic experiences of my life to be healed like they have been.”
“Like a house of mirrors, your inner issues are reflected back to recognize, contemplate and release. The incredible light and love that at Creacon truly offers an adventure in self discovery and the education and opening of the heart.”
