My wife and I offer short healing retreats. We have a beautiful self- contained building ('Birch Bothy'), in our garden and it looks out over a herb garden and open fields. It has a small kitchen area, shower room, wood burning stove and a double bed.

We are both interfaith ministers and can offer sessions of spiritual counselling / accompaniment or meditation if this feels helpful. The retreats can also include herbal medicine consultations and dietary advice if needed. For some people a little structure and support can be really helpful, others choose simply to take time out on their own and enjoy the beautiful countryside. We can provide evening meals if arranged in advance.

Why not get in touch and we can help you create exactly the right retreat for you, at this point in your life.
