The Winter Well-Being Retreat

~mindful listening for everyday life~

FEB 23rd -25th 2018

Riverside Cottage, Barton Stacey, Winchester, Hampshire

We welcome you to join us for a weekend where you can completely get away from the hub-bub, pause for breath, and create space to give yourself a good listening to. This residential retreat will consist of a mix of group workshops, informal discussions, and one-on-one coaching. There will be periods of individual self-discovery, as well as periods of time for rest and personal journaling, writing, photography, painting, whatever makes your heart sing. We invite you to come and be part of a retreat experience in which you can take some well – earned ‘me’ time and get your ‘shift’ together.


What’s Happening

The theme of this retreat is mindful listening, and allowing ourselves to slow down and truly listen to ourselves. The constant busyness of today’s whirlwind paced world, creates stress and physical tension, as well as hampering creativity and joy in all areas of life. We are creating a space for you to pause for breath, and listen to yourself and others, assisted by our three minfulness experts, adept at putting people at ease and bringing joy into the lives of those around them.


Glorious accommodation is on offer at Riverside Cottage. The bedrooms are all quirky, with sloping ceilings, exposed beams, little hatches to chat to people in other rooms and plenty of bathrooms and en suites dotted around the cottage.


All food is included. Locally sourced, wholesome, fresh, and delicious meals will be served three times a day, tailored to your dietary requirements.
