A life-changing week. Over the last year, I had been getting gradually more anxious and stressed, eating badly and barely pausing for breath. Since the retreat, I have felt like a different person: calmer, more level headed and healthier. This retreat should be on prescription for anyone struggling to cope.

Steph and Jaz thought very carefully to provide us with a complete balanced package of activities, food, rest and play, which was perfect. In addition to which we benefited by enjoying the company of a collection of wonderful friendly, non-judgemental women. We could want for nothing more.

Genuinely transformed my outlook on life in a busy world. I now get up earlier to take time for myself to stretch and appreciate my body before the day. I feel, in myself, less frustrated by things I can’t control and more in control of things I can. Physically I feel looser and more energetic! Mentally and emotionally I have so much more motivation, I feel so much more relaxed.

Besides from the obvious stagnant grief and stress that has been released, I think my creativity has been stagnant for way longer than I realised. My entire flight home has been full of journaling creative thoughts and ideas that I can’t wait to go and explore further. So I think really it has also freed my creativity too. I think something has been unlocked… thank you both
