We all know what it can be like to get caught on the hamster wheel of activity, losing perspective and finding it hard to step off and relax. Some of us may feel we are not too far from chronic stress and burnout, and sometimes may wonder what all this frenetic activity is for.
Are we living to work, or working to live?
Stepping back from the daily pressures of our ‘to do’ list allows us to reconnect with the bigger picture of our lives – with what energises us and gives us a sense of meaning and purpose. It is surprising how quickly we do unwind and feel full of energy when we find the space to nurture ourselves. A retreat offers the perfect opportunity to reflect on patterns in your life from a different angle, and help you rediscover the wellsprings of vitality within.
For this reason we invite you to join us for a three-day wellbeing retreat in the beautiful, restful surroundings of Tofte Manor.
The retreat will take place from Friday afternoon to Monday afternoon of the late May Bank Holiday, 25-28th May 2018.
We've created a special wellbeing programme that will leave you rejuvenated yet calm, and with greater zest for life. This is a chance to
- Look after your body through yoga practices and delicious, home-made food for physical health
- Learn to relate wisely to your thoughts and feelings through mindfulness practice
- Align with what matters to you in life through personal development coaching workshop.
