"It changed my life for ever. Something dropped away during the self-enquiry circle, an old issue faced and made peace with. I feel completely different. I can’t thank you enough."

With Marion Young, Gillian Lenane & Jan Collis

This retreat is a powerful combination of deep healing rest, self enquiry and therapeutic silence. Marion, Gillian & Jan’s years of combined experience creates a very nurturing and sacred space in which to connect with the source of your peace and happiness.

The cosy yet spacious venue is in an ideal location that exudes a sense of peace and tranquillity, it is set in 25 acres of grounds in the beautiful Hampshire countryside, with good transport links. All the bedrooms are on the first floor of the house, are beautifully furnished and have their own basin, and there is an ample supply of bathrooms, toilets and shower rooms.

Offering you a deep immersion into the silence and stillness

Silence really is ‘golden’

There is a long spiritual tradition of ‘entering the silence’ as a means of connecting with the energy that created you. Here it is possible to access a life changing power, higher and purer than anything else – ‘the peace that passes all understanding’

A tech-free time

Time spent without technology is surprisingly liberating. To reap the full benefits of being in silence and stillness, we will be disconnecting from all technology, including phones (there is be a 24-hour contact number that you can give to your friends and family, so you can be contacted if needed).

What people have said about previous Silent Retreats

“Still on a high after the silent retreat. That was so lovely. Honestly, you can forget fancy holidays, wining and dining, high living etc…I can’t think of anywhere else I’d rather be than at your guided retreat. It was sublime.”

“The silent retreat more than met my expectations! I thought it would be calm and soothing but wasn’t expecting to leave with such a deep sense of peace.”

“I have felt held and nurtured so deeply, yet so utterly free to be in stillness. I wish it could go on and on. I leave knowing part of it shall remain with me, within me. All I need to do is pause and be still and reconnect.”

“The retreat changed my life for ever. Something dropped away during the self enquiry circle, an old issue faced and made peace with. I feel completely different. I can’t thank you enough”

“The care and attention and love that was put into this retreat was felt and very appreciated. I loved all of it.”

“The retreat went beyond my expectations of deep peace, relaxation and personal development, it was an opportunity to go deep within, to nourish the body and soul and rest the mind.”
