Feast your eyes upon the wellbeing delights to recharge, revitalise and relax mind, body and soul. Nourish yourself for one day with love, laughter, food and wonderful activities in a community of wonderful humans. Concessions are available, as per usual.
Winter time can be exhausting and for some, a little depressing and daunting. During our one day retreat we will gently energise, practice deep restorative relaxation to really top up our batteries and allow ourselves time and space to 'be'.
IMPORTANT INFORMATION FOR ATTENDEES
There are five amazing teachers joining us on Sunday and we are all really looking forward to seeing you. Here is some more info for you :)
St Gregory The Great School, Cricket Road OX4 3DR
Loads of parking. Please walk all the way down through the school to the main assembly hall. Arrive early to make sure you don’t get lost.
Please arrive for 9.15am at the very latest.
We will be leaving at 5.45pm
There will be two stalls for you to buy lush things from. My beautiful sister in law, Susie, is brining her incredible collection of organic bath and beauty products. My darling friend Molly is selling her hand made non-toxic candles. All of these products are ethical and gorgeous.
Please bring a bowl and a spoon for your food at lunch time. Food is all vegan gluten free ;) Herbal teas are provided also.
Please also bring a flask for tea if you’d like a hot herbal tea. Mugs aren’t ideal since they spill. If you prefer to just have normal water, by all means bring a regular bottle with you. There are no cups or glasses at the venue since it is a school hall.
NOTE: IF YOU DONT BRING A PLATE OR A FLASK YOU WONT BE ABLE TO EAT OR DRINK ANYTHING XXXX
What to bring:
*PLENTY OF WARM THINGS
*Don’t be shy! Bring many blankets, cushions, pillows, sleeping bag, hot water bottle etc. Slippers and super thick socks win. Hat and scarf are always a good idea too. Many layers are key.
