Testimonials:

It was an exquisite day in all respects. Have never experienced nature so deeply. Have never been so earthed. Lynne

Wonderful. The flow was ideal. I felt held and carried by you Alex and the group. It was gentle and nurturing. A bringing together and meeting of wonderful people. An affirmation of the power and good of storytelling and meditation and good food and reflection. I have so many thoughts and words without wanting or being able to articulate them! It was deep inner work, difficult to articulate.

Given permission to be open - to nurture yourself in a very safe place. It is a gift to yourself - a reminder to care for yourself.

A day to be with yourself in a safe and beautiful surroundings. A very friendly and open atmosphere. Ami

Safe, friendly, well focused with room to adapt and 'be'. A little bit of everything, joyous, playful and great food! Karen

It was a gift to myself. So much given from the day in thoughtful, skillful preparations - allowing for personal growth. Without doubt its uplifting and we all found it beautiful in our own ways. Alex you made it extremely lovely; from the venue, your welcome, the clarity of what we were to expect/or do - the stream of experiences and the lovely mindfulness, walking, sharing, storytelling and gong bath. For all of the above and also for your pace, your voice, the transitions between activities, reflections, tasks... it was a beautiful day. Thank you so much. Jane

A light way to realign your thoughts true to what it is that you want and to achieve out of life. Perfect day!

Beautiful and transformational. Relaxing and stories. Incredible gong bath - went very deep and shifted something. Its been a very stressful time in my life without much peace, finally regained a sense of grounding - didn't think it was possible.

I wanted to write (with a pen on paper) to tell you how much I enjoyed the retreat on Friday. It was pitched so perfectly. A beautiful space both physically and emotionally and I know that there is much put in by you to hold that space. So thank you. I really, really love it when people tell stories and truly feel that it is a gift given from one to the other. Sitting round the fire, warm, together, safe and feeling fed physically and spiritually was very special.

Deeply relaxing, space to be alone to cmoe back to my centre, heart centred connection to nature. A coming back to me. Stillness, flow, silence, gentleness, authenticity, effortless, - thank you from my heart to yours. Jess

Feeling my feet in the grass and the sun and wind on my skin. Sitting alone by the lake and walking and observing in silence. I slept so well after the gong bath it was incredible. Kate

It was perfect! Just what I needed: a warmly, lovingly-held sacred space for silence, nature, open-heartedness, peace and the deliciousness of a gong bath, wonderful food and location. Thank you! Magdalena

I was unsure what to expect and was a bit apprehensive as I not a 'spiritual' person. I enjoyed every aspect of the day and the gong bath was even better than I'd hoped. You are unusually able to to support people and allow them to be themselves. Nesta

The gong bath was amazing! I had no idea it could make those sounds - the best experience I've had in a long while and definitely in my top ten of all time. Aubrey

I highly recommend this experience. An opportunity to enjoy nature and reconnect with self and regain life balance. Jayne

A gentle day which encouraged reconnection to my senses in a beautiful setting facilitated with sensitivity and insight.

It was a day which encouraged and facilitated connection to nature and our quiet inner self, self nurture, and to be present in the now. Lorraine

It is a day I will hold in my memory for ever. Julia

I can't put it into words - apart from I really needed this special day - allowed me to feel and 'be'. Just 'Be'. Thank you 😍
