and at the same time, be fully in the calm abiding centre.” ~ Stephen Cope

- Guidance, discussion and support to feed mind, body and soul.
- Self Compassion Re-charge – ‘Kindfulness’ Neuroscience

“Re-vitalizing and healing…having the luxury of time to be reflective, to remember myself, and trust that person” ~ Amber
“This weekend allowed me to really listen to my body and feel how tired I am. It was the perfect way to unplug and replenish myself, the perfect balance between practice, information and free time. I have lately been having difficulty feeling love/compassion towards myself and I feel like I have been bathed in it all weekend. Thank you for holding the space and allowing me to be there just as I am.” ~ Alison
