Now that the dust has settled after the Autumn ChangeCamp 2018 the ChangeCamp website is going to hibernate for a while.

There will still be the occasional posting of future events and workshops which will also come to you via the ChangeCamp Courier.

You can sign up for the newsletter to the right of this article.

At the end of this year I will start the process of waking up the website for the Spring ChangeCamp 2019 scheduled for 9th March 2019.

I hope to see you then.

In the meantime I wish you a snug winter.

Andy Hunt, ChangeCamp Coordinator

Retreat In Mind …..

,Autumn Retreat

Hello To All Our Ace Stress Busters,

It was great to press pause with you all yesterday at our mini retreat in mind, thank you for taking the time at the end of your day to join me in downing tools to luxuriate in quite powerfully doing not very much at all. It’s lovely to hear that so many of you slept so well last night & that others have woken up today with a sense of renewed energy & get up & go! funny how this works isn’t it! Do let me know how things progress. Our workshop was fully booked yesterday so if you didn’t get the chance to sign up & retreat, please do join us for a Pre Festive Retreat Day at Linden Hall on Sunday 9th December – there will be a roaring log fire & a big cosy armchair waiting to welcome you & a whole day to relax & reclaim our peace of mind ready to really enjoy the holiday season ahead.

See you soon,

Chris @ The Retreat People

 

Nearly Time To Retreat ……

I’m looking forward to welcoming you all to our relax & revive mini retreat in mind at the end of the day. We are fully booked but don’t worry we can always make space for you to stretch out & relax.

I know you know but remember to wear clothes that you feel comfortable relaxing in & indulge yourself & bring along your favorite Autumn cosy blanket to help you drift away.

See you tomorrow for another great Change Camp

Best Regards

Chris @ The Retreat People

Presentation: Brief Grief Therapy

Death is part of life and bereavement is universal.

Most of us manage to find our way through our loss and pick up the pieces of our lives.

For some of us however, the way out seems eternal and a belief can develop that there can be, or will be, no way out for them.

In this workshop, Harry Knox, NLP Master Practitioner,Trainer,Counselling Supervisor and founder of the Brief Grief Therapy method, will introduce you as to how best to use the process that he has created and developed over the past ten years.

It is possible and achievable to enable someone to grieve, mourn and to arrive at the place of acceptance that they wish to be at. What is just as important, is that it does not have to take weeks or months to achieve.

This workshop will be particularly relevant to those people who, either professionally or otherwise work with grieving people.

As per usual with Harry’s sessions, it is a rule that participants have to have fun during the workshop.

Presentation: An Autumn Retreat In Mind

Autumn RetreatWhat a wonderful Summer!

But as the seasons change it’s time to turn our attention yet again to the opportunities and gifts of Autumn ahead.

It seems that in a blink of an eye 2018 has run away with us it’s been such a busy year. It can feel like there’s been no time to stop and catch your breath.

With family, home & work demands pulling us in all directions stress finds a way to take hold and build up before we know it!

But never fear The Retreat People are back at Change Camp to help get things back on track with a mini retreat in mind so you can just relax and fully enjoy the fruits of the Autumn season.

Allowing yourself time to pause and be still is a gift in managing any unhelpful & overwhelming stress that has taken root in these hectic & challenging times.

As ever our relaxation workshop is perfectly timed at the end of the Autumn Change Camp day to give you time to simply pause, take a breath & reflect on your day. So are you ready just to relax in mind?

Our Autumn Mini Retreat session is simple – your time to just let go, you don’t have to do a thing ….. no thinking involved, just come along, switch off and enjoy some simply powerful relaxation & stress management mindfulness techniques designed to recover that all important balance & peace of mind.

As ever The Retreat People look forward to relaxing to revive with friends old & new at Autumn Change Camp 2018.

We Know You Know but Remember – To Enjoy Your Relaxation Retreat Please Bring:

  • Lightweight cosy blanket or cover – some people like to lie on the floor although chairs will also be available (You already know – We always say, Teddy Bears & Slippers are optional!)
  • Your desire to relax, chill out & just enjoy yourself at the end of a busy day.

Looking Forward To Pressing Pause With You Very Soon.

Presentation: Havening Power Circle

An opportunity to explore the practical use of Havening Techniques

Join this workshop and learn how to use Havening to empower yourself and others in practical, effective and comfortable ways.

Our focus will be on exploring how we can change our perspective and emotional responses more easily and pleasantly than we might imagine; and in increasing our wellbeing, through accessing pleasant memories, sharing our experiences and utilising Havening Touch and several Havening Techniques.

About Havening: a better way of living through neuroscience

Through research and development, Drs Ronald and Steven Ruden were able to share a new system grounded in neuroscience and clinical observation.

They called this system ‘Havening’, meaning ‘to put one in a safe place’, a safe haven. People who have experienced the techniques say that they are ‘effective’ and ‘easy and pleasant to use’.

A study at King’s College London showed that after just one session of Havening nearly all of the participants were able to concentrate better, let go of disturbing thoughts and eliminate worry, and were able to boost their self-esteem. The results also showed that most of the participants were still benefiting from those changes two months after the single session of Havening.
