Do you find you achieve the balance between your competing commitments that you desire?

Have you been rocking your many roles in life the way you want to?

Designed for busy working women, employed or running their own business. We will deep dive into your year and craft the balance you desire for your year ahead.

Is there never enough time?

Do you feel that those you care about get the exhausted, grumpy you, instead of the loving patient you?

Is ME time something you dream of?


You will leave the retreat with:

  • Time out to move out of overwhelm, refresh and reflect on your life balance
  • A clear, achievable plan for your year ahead that looks at your personal as well as professional life.
  • A network of like-minded, supportive working women to help you.
  • A reconnection with your playful self
  • A feeling of being refreshed, revived and supported
  • A deep sense of taking back control

I can’t recommend it highly enough. Being here for the two days, I have come back energised and transformed. For me the difference has been that all those negative thoughts that I had, have somehow just disappeared and now I have a clear plan on what I need to do with the focus of looking after myself and also moving forward with my idea.

– Katherine Gale –


  • Being in the same old environment creates the same thinking and the same results, taking your self out of that creates the opportunity for new thinking, for creativity and to unlock your deep knowing.
  • Taking time out isn’t selfish, it means that you will be able to be more present, energetic and be a nicer person to be around in the long term.
  • According to the Chopra Centre Research – It can be difficult for people to break away from their lives for more than a few days but the longer you can spend away at a retreat, the more likely you are to keep up your new practices when you get back.

Our retreats use the idea of the four rooms, inspired by the work of late author, Rumer Godden.

Everyone is a House with Four Rooms: A Spiritual, a Physical, a Mental, and an Emotional room. Most of us tend to live in one room most of the time, but unless we go into every room, every day, even if only to keep it aired, we are not complete.

Through engaging exercises, encounters with nature, unlocked creativity, deep reflection and the support of a sisterhood of women, coaches with decades of experience will guide you to take the steps you need to come home to yourself.

To get the most out of the retreat, we believe it’s important to be in beautiful and inspiring surroundings. Being in the same old environment creates the same thinking and the same results, taking yourself out of that creates the opportunity for new thinking, for creativity and to unlock your deep knowing.

We have chosen Down Hall Country House Hotel, because it’s surrounded by enchanting grounds, with aged trees, secret gardens and lush greenery – the perfect space for reflection. The hotel facilities and grounds are the perfect place to focus, relax and re-discover yourself with like minded people.

The rooms are spacious, comfortable and quiet. The bathrooms are huge if you want a long soak or just to spend a bit of extra time preening in front of the mirror.

There is a sauna and a steam room that you can access free of charge, with time built into day 2 of the retreat to do so. You can release those aching muscles, knead those knots in your shoulders and cleanse your skin and soul.

The food and drinks are truly scrumptious, three course meals that don’t just dance beautifully on the tongue but are a feast for the eyes as well.

Space is designed into the weekend to relax and recharge, whether that be over delicious meals or meditative walks through the grounds. Precious time without the usual demands of life means that women can prioritorise themselves for a change, which was is really appreciated and much needed.

The retreat takes place over 2 days.

SATURDAY 10th November

10am Your Inner Compass

We begin with a powerful visualisation connecting you with your inner compass and then guiding you to consider the rooms you spend time in and the ones that you don’t, why that is and how you want it to change.

The Spiritual Room
Most of the shadows of life are caused by standing in our own sunshine.

This experiential session, facilitated by Coach Jackee Holder, will explore the relationship between your inner and outer nature. Drawing from the nature on your doorstep and the wonderful trees in the retreat grounds, you will set off with a series of writing prompts designed to explore your levels of self-awareness and connection.

1pm Lunch

2pm The Physical Room
How daily activities impact changes in persons physical, emotional and mental stress.

Whether your physical body is a well-oiled machine, or needs attention, High Performance Energy Coach Izabella Niewiadomska, will help you plan the steps to a healthier, fitter, happier, balanced and fulfilled life.

The Mental Room
Thoughts have energy. Make sure your thoughts are positive and powerful.

Coach Jenny Garrett begins the exploration of your four rooms, looking at your limiting thoughts and beliefs, assumptions and thinking patterns and guiding you to create your new and inspiring truth.

5.30pm Close

7.30pm Group Dinner

SUNDAY 11th November

9-11am A Date with Yourself

 Grab this opportunity to have a date with yourself. You can explore the sumptuous grounds in a meditative walk, curl up in a corner on a comfy sofa and reflect, or take the opportunity to use the spa. You will be provided with some tools to guide your reflection and make the most of this time of this important ‘me’ time.

11am The Emotional Room
Our feelings are not there to be cast out or conquered. They’re there to be engaged and expressed with imagination and intelligence.

Coach Jenny Garrett will guide you to a re-connection with your feelings and emotions and uncover how they impact you. Your feelings are a precious and powerful life navigation system. When you listen to your emotions you can more easily recognise what you need, what you are called to and what we need to let go of.

12.30pm Lunch

1.30pm Intentions in Action

Lastly, Coach Jenny Garrett will move you effortlessly to setting your new intentions, on how you will intentionally visit your four rooms – Spiritual, Physical, Mental and Emotional – daily. You will make a commitment to yourself and others, anticipating what you will need to keep yourself on track; such as the accountability groups and online support you desire to stay intentional in daily life.

3.30pm Departure
