After 18 years on Isle of Man, me and my hubby decided to follow our dreams and move back to Somerset, UK in pursuit of a more earthy, 'good life'. A major part of the transition for me was moving away from my corporate life as a personal and leadership development trainer and coach - a huge shift.
As I hibernated and began a profoundly healing metamorphosis - I felt myself shedding my 'old life' skin and starting to reconnect with my authentic self. I woke up from the edge and saw how I could start living my life more fully and passionately. You can read more about my Awakening at the Edge story by clicking here.
Through this transformation, Conversations with a Butterfly was conceived, I found a renewed inspiration for helping people and created an uplifting channel through which I could serve others. Through my writing, coaching, training and meditations, I now dream of helping you to reach your potential, find your authentic voice, build an unerring self-belief and live the happy life you truly deserve.
This 'Celebration of Me' Retreat is all about putting yourself at the top of the list - at least just for one day. Amongst our many roles of parent, teacher, child, employee, carer, sibling, taxi driver and too many others to mention, we rarely create time for ourselves to rest, restore and focus on our needs. Sometimes we just need to take time out in a very organised fashion to still our frenetic lives and our busy minds. And when we can find the space and stillness, we become better able to deal with life's stresses and begin to find hope and peace amongst the arms of mediocrity that shield us from life's rich experiences.
Back by popular demand, this one-day experience is so much more than a workshop. It's a small piece of heavenly self-nourishment, that starts the very moment you press the 'Buy Now' Button, signalling that you ready for and deserve some 'you' time. From this moment you ignite a small flame of self-respect that we will build on throughout the day, nourishing you with beautiful food, supporting you with like-minded souls who will share the day with you and leave you with a comforting sense of how you can continue to honour yourself back in the busy-ness of your daily life. Restored, renewed, rejuvenated and hopeful, you will feel calm and uplifted from your retreat, helping you return with an inner strength and resolve that nourishes your very soul.
As a trained meditation teacher, I will guide you through relaxing and insightful visualisations and help you enter into the world of mindfulness and stillness brining you a touchable peace. Supported by highly talented Yoga Teacher Heidi Danaher, you will experience the elegance of yoga movement, stillness and breathing that tunes you into the very fabric of your body in a highly restorative way. Heidi has been teaching for well over a decade on the Island as well as at UK yoga retreats and has trained extensively with the British Wheel of Yoga, as well as with the Karuna Yoga school. Heidi has also trained in mindful meditation and has a special interest in using yoga nidra deep relaxation in order to induce profound relaxation, promote health and eliminate stress.
Deeply nurturing and supportive exercises will help you safely navigate your inner self, uplift you with the realisation of your inner qualities and restore a sense of belief about yourself in a light and playful way. All of which is nourished by the beautiful and peaceful surroundings of Old Lonan Church Farm in Baldrine, where you will eat great food, experience timeless tranquility, only interrupted by the sound of the bubbling fish pond or occasional bleating sheep and the luxury of a hydrotherapy spa pool that you are invited to indulge in, at the end of our day.
I hope that this day you will leave you feeling:
* Aware and awakened
