Soul Retreats – One Day Saturday Retreats for Women in Surrey

Unplug, unwind, take time out to rest, relax and reconnect with your soul

Many of us lead very stressful lives and we do not give ourselves the chance, either to rest, or to review what might need changing to reduce stress in our lives. We have often lost touch with our ability to relax and with our internal intuitive resources.

 A retreat offers you the opportunity for deep relaxation, self-healing and a chance to reflect on your lifestyle away from the hustle and bustle of normal life. This facilitates access to your own innate source of wisdom, a place where you can find supportive answers to any current dilemmas.

 One Day Retreats offer you the opportunity to enter into deep stillness and relaxation, completely switching off for a whole day. The experience is like being wrapped in a loving, all embracing cloak so you can let go and be yourself. By the end, you will feel deeply refreshed and restored.

Dates & Times

Each Saturday retreat begins at 9.30am and finishes at 4.30pm. They take place in the dedicated sacred space of my Epsom studio with access to our lovely garden and home that also becomes a sacred space.

Included are light refreshments for the breaks and soup at lunch and you are invited to bring your own packed lunch. It is recommended that you wear warm comfortable clothing and bring outdoor wear and shoes, as well as slippers or socks.

There are a maximum of 6 places to ensure plenty of space for deep rest and relaxation.

What people have said about the One Day Retreats…

“The atmosphere that Gillian creates on her Retreats is very caring and supportive. The Vision Retreat I attended in January was well organised but more than that it was very inclusive and caring. Her hospitality (the Retreat was run in an annex to her home in the garden) was gracious and freely given with lots of lovely things that made the experience that bit more enjoyable; log fires in her sitting room, a massive selection of teas, infusions and coffee, hot soup at lunchtime (even though she asks you bring a packed lunch). She has an openness that encourages more generosity of spirit which produced a very supportive and creative time for me. I would highly recommend Gillian’s Retreats—this day has really helped me to expand my thinking and also to focus on where I am right now and where I want to be!”

“Thank you for such a joyful day. The day gave me much needed space to be still and reflective but also be inspired by shared laughter and creative play. Gillian, you have a warm, nurturing presence”

Heather

“What a truly lovely and inspiring day Saturday was! I turned up feeling my usual anxious and stressed out self and left feeling so calm, relaxed, and up lifted!”
