13 – 15 November 2020: Autumn Untamed

A woman’s retreat exploring the richest season of the soul

Bee and Su (Women’s Space Holder, Holistic Counsellor and Yoga Teacher) invite you to gather with them and explore the autumn energy of our cycle, our lives and our season.  Autumn is the great truth telling time.  The leaves fall away and we are left with the bare bones.  It is an opportunity to find our authentic voice; to explore the shadow side of autumn and step more fully into our power.
Show more…

To find a balance between the sacred feminine and masculine.  A chance to nourish ourselves and listen to the call to rest.  A chance to come together, to be held, to support each other, to stand together, to be welcomed in our entirety.

An opportunity to reconnect to our inner lamp as the light fades outside.
An opportunity to release and renew, ready to face the winter ahead.
To leave nourished, stronger, unified.

Join us at Holycombe Holistic Retreat Centre in the Cotswolds  (https://www.holycombe.com/) on Friday, 13th November in the late afternoon and stay till late afternoon on Sunday, 15th November

Holycombe is a wonderful sanctuary, offering us beautiful accommodation and living spaces for exclusive use by our group.  Wholesome, delicious and nourishing vegetarian meals and refreshments will be provided all day Saturday and Sunday.  We plan to open the space on Friday evening with a bring and share evening meal and welcoming ceremony.

The full weekend, including accommodation, meals, workshops and goodie bags is offered on the following exchange basis:

Double room with single occupancy – £380
Twin room (shared) in main house – £350
Twin room (shared) in annex – £330

Autumn untamed involves:

  • Gaining a deeper understanding of the gifts of autumn
  • Receiving guidance from your own inner autumn
  • Gaining support to step into your authentic self and express your inner voice with love, conviction and power
  • Receiving an opportunity to hone your autumn intuition and cut away what no longer serves you
  • Delving deep with sisterly support and being held in a circle of women
  • Being provided with an opportunity to rest and embrace the land
  • Exploring who you are in the growing darkness of Autumn, where you are and feeling out your next steps

To book please get in touch with Su or Bee and confirm your place via an £80 deposit payment.  The remainder of the exchange can be split into two equal payments, one is due by the end of June and the other by the end of August.
