I was probably quite scared before I came. I didn’t know what to expect and I was confused about the changes that my body (and mind) are going through. It was welcoming and safe space and I instantly felt at ease. The mixture of journaling, yoga, yoga nidra and talking felt just right. I have come away feeling braver, more connected to myself and more accepting of who I am and the changes I am going through. S, Exeter
I found the day really enlightening. It clarified many things that I have worrying about and not fully understood. It’s been an engaging process that opened thoughts I didn’t know I had. I enjoyed the varied structure of the day, which included specific yoga practices to open up our hearts and our minds, a bit of jounaling, a walk in gorgeous countryside and a delicious lunch S, Zeal Monachorum
Thank you for a truly wonderful day: beautiful, magical and a deeply spiritual experience. I was surprised with what came up for me. I will take home so much from the experience. Sharing with other women about our lives thus far, similar symptoms, emotions and feelings in such a safe and held space was very healing. I really enjoyed the process and structure of the day which was very well planned: combining journalling, sharing, yin yoga (which I love) and yoga nidra was perfect. The food was delicious and the meditaion walk was a very moving and heartfelt experience. I will be back for more for sure. R, Oxford
The day created a safe space for me to step out of my deep trauma mindset and into the embodiment of my divine self that until now I considered an unreachable construct. The structure, patience, kindness and love, alongside meditative pracitce, deep soulful release have given me insight and knowledge to embrace who I can truly am and I have begun to reimagine myself. I have away with a feeling of peace, clarity and a clearer outlook. It may be the first step on the ladder but it’s the best. S, Moretonhampstead
