Retreat Overview

Starting on Friday evening we’ll begin our weekend adventure by relaxing and unwinding and beginning to listen in to the unique language of our bodies, followed by a good night’s dream-informed sleep.

On Saturday and Sunday, you have the option to begin each day with a walk in the grounds, meditation, or a lie-in, whatever your body is asking for in each moment. Delicious home-cooked meals and refreshments give rhythm and nourishment to the retreat.


"My first experience of [this course] completely blew me away. It's truly revolutionary and something we all need to know about. The idea is simple and accessible to everybody yet so effective and profound. The body is more conscious then we ever knew, and can heal far more effortlessly then previously thought. The workshop felt sacred , beautiful, holding and transformational. I feel honoured to have had the opportunity to rediscover such important ancient wisdom. For our children's children's sake we need to pass this on to many."



Content & Approach

Listen to a new language of body awareness as you tune in to the sensations of the sixty trillion co-ordinated chemical events happening every moment. Our bodies are the physical form of our spirits and souls, take the time to find out what is stirring and resonating within you to hear their direction more deeply. Come and find out what your own somatic wisdom is telling you, what unique voices you can hear sourced in your own life and tissue. Develop fluency in understanding how your body communicates its wisdom through physical sensation and movement.

Body Harmony is the safest, most in-depth conversation you will ever have, led by the consent of your body. It can lead you to a pleasurable sense of home and connection as an integral part of the responsive environment that is the universe. Continuum is the most integrated way of applying the precepts to your own body. Its qualities are movement, fluidity, sound, stillness, nuance, curiosity and ease.

This weekend we have the opportunity to begin to re-learn how to blossom in reciprocal relationship to all life. A perfect Solstice celebration.

What is Body Harmony?

Deciphering the stories of our body

This practice recognises that each person’s body stores memory and the intellectual and emotional responses attached to that memory

Works on the principle that your body has a unique pathway to finding the memory and unwinding the attached emotion

Uses a synthesis of breath, gravity, awareness, intention, movement, embodiment and responsive and attentive touch, involving an understanding of quantum physics, epigenetics and neural science

A journey of exploration; of the physical, mental, emotional, psychological and our energy as an integral part of the world’s energy.
