What it is


Do you long for some “me time”? Space to relax and connect more deeply with yourself? Do you wish that you could receive with Grace, rather than always giving?

On the Sole to Soul Retreat, you will explore practices that will help make your life even healthier and more fulfilling

You will receive gentle guidance into:
  • daily meditations
  • learning and sharing foot massages
  • self-enquiry
  • qigong
These may be practices, which you are already familiar with and which you wish to develop further, or they may be completely new to you. You will be guided each step of the way. They are simple tools, which you can incorporate into your life and may even transform it. This course is open to everyone, wherever you are right now.

Meditation is the bedrock, and we will start and finish the day with moving or sitting meditation.

Massage brings in the connecting power of touch and we begin with our own hands. We then turn to our feet, which carry us through our lives and are a point of connection to the earth, to ourselves and to others; sole to soul. Applying reflexology techniques, you will learn how to give and receive a simple foot massage.

You will also explore enquiry practices, as sharing our experiences is a powerful way to integrate all the tools you will be learning. We will use this practice to help us stop and reflect throughout the day.

You will be supported throughout this retreat, by the practice of qigong.

To help you in your desire to receive with Grace, you will also have the option, during the breaks, of booking a healing session with an accredited spiritual healer.

 You can listen to Siân, Pamela and Sybil discussing the topic of connections and their upcoming Soul to Sole retreat here:
