Testimonial - Nov 2022
What people enjoyed...
"Time for myself, away from the distractions of home and work. Beautiful countryside,fresh air and walks, meditation, mindfulness and story telling sessions. Wonderful supportive faculty and lovely group of people. Food was just superb!"
A beautiful varied vegetarian menu - all prepared on site. "incredible - thanks Catriona!"
A new experience. So relaxing.
Time spent outside in nature
Guided group walks or space to roam on your own if you wish
I found the stories the most powerful and I least expected this. I learned a lot from other people’s human lived experiences
"I loved the walking and the quiet of the countryside, the time stargazing, meeting lovely people. Sound bath, yoga and massage and creative writing workshop were all fantastic. Beautiful location, loved the wood burning stove and the cosy and relaxed atmosphere"
"I was suprised by. how I really enjoyed the social aspects like dinners and walks. The conversations which emerged were serious and inspiring and hilarious and wonderful. I quite often don’t like enforced time with strangers over meals etc (as you get at conferences etc)... (but it) was all real and brilliant."
"The writing workshop was particularly useful. Extremely powerful and intense session for me."
