Group Retreats


As well as offering private and exclusive retreats all year round in Cinderford, I also offer ‘pop-up’ Group Retreats at carefully selected venues, both local to me in the Forest of Dean, and also further afield around the UK.  These retreats are an amazing way to get away from the every day stresses of life, connect with like minded people, and allow yourself to switch off and recharge.

Photos and testimonials from previous retreats can be found further down the page, including the two most recent retreats which I have run with my partner Sarah Hoare – “Head, Heart & Hara” at The Wilderness Centre in December 2020, and “Because You Matter Most” in June 2021 – part of our ‘RETREAT TO RESTORE’ series.  

Our next ‘RETREAT TO RESTORE’ collaboration is ‘Slowing Into Stillness’ – which we are holding at the Open Pathway Retreat Centre, Queen Camel (nr Yeovil) in Somerset, from 29th to 31st October 2021 (with optional extensions to 1st or 3rd November 2021 – meaning people can join us for 2, 3 or 5 nights, depending on their availability). 

I am particularly excited about this retreat as it is being held at the retreat centre that I have been going to myself for the last 10 years!  To be running a retreat there myself feels wonderful and I’m looking forward to introducing all the retreatants to this fabulous place.  🙂


From Friday 29th to Sunday 31st October we are offering:

  • gentle movement, mindfulness and meditation sessions 
  • a private treatment (massage or reiki) included in the price
  • exclusive group use of the pool, gardens and comfy ‘home from home’ lounge with log fire, armchairs and blankets

We are planning an agenda that will be suitable for both beginners and those new to our retreats, but that also caters for those who’ve been before – with techniques and exercises focussed on stillness, and slowing down both body and mind.


For those staying over on ‘Sleepy Sunday’, we will be offering a special Satsang group discussion around manifestation and creating your own reality, before ‘Settling Into Silence’ to reflect and go within from Monday 1st to Wednesday 3rd November. You will have a totally private slot in the pool during this silent retreat – for you / your pair – and the option to book a (second) private treatment at an additional cost (£50).

Please see the flyers below, and photos I have taken on previous visits to the Open Pathway Retreat Centre.  Get in touch with any queries, for more information or to book.  There are limited places available, with some private ensuite options which will be allocated on a first come first serve basis.  

Previous Retreats

I have been running group retreats and workshops since 2010 at a number of local venues – such as The Asha Centre, The Wilderness Centre and Flanesford Priory – as well as elsewhere in the UK – e.g. Fynn Valley Lodges. 

I often do this in collaboration with other practitioners like Sarah, with whom I have shared values and synergy, including Tanya Carter of Crystal Conscious, Exploring Raw and Sundara, and Ciara Roberts from Wholly Aligned.  Between us we can bring more skills, as well as naturally bringing different perspectives on the same topics.

See photos, posters and reviews of previous retreats below, and get in touch if you’d like to be added to our mailing list for future retreats.


An outstanding experience that’s welcoming to all.”
Everything was put together so well. Our hosts were welcoming, wonderful and warm.
I was nervous before coming but very soon felt relaxed and at ease.
I didn’t know what to expect but everything was explained beautifully. Excellent organising!
It has given me the chance to completely reset myself.
I feel refreshed, reawakened and truly relaxed.
