Presentation: Spring Forward With The Retreat People

The green shoots of Spring are emerging and the days are getting that little bit longer so perhaps it’s time to peek out and take a fresh look at life as we move into 2020.

For the very last time The Retreat People would love you to join us for a mini Relaxation Retreat taster session at the end of your inspiring Spring Change Camp day.

As ever it will be a real opportunity for renewal and fresh starts, or at least a time to breathe fresh life into old projects, attitudes and our approach to life.

Our mini retreat is the only workshop today in which you are expected to do nothing – what’s not to like – a power point free zone where no thinking is needed …. just time to really relax and blow away the cobwebs so we can make space to welcome in that much needed peace of mind.

In our workshop we might use guided relaxation, mindfulness & meditation techniques drawn from our expertise utilising Hypnotherapy, EFT, NLP, Performance Coaching & maybe even a little bit of Laughter Yoga to help everyone relax, drift off to who knows where and simply enjoy the moment.

So ready to welcome in the joys of Spring?

To Enjoy Your Session Please Bring:

  • Comfortable clothing you feel relaxed in
  • Lightweight cosy blanket or cover – some people like to lie on floor although chairs will also be available
  • Your Teddy Bear & Slippers as ever are optional!
  • Just bring your desire to relax, chill out & simply enjoy yourself.

Once again we look forward to welcoming friends old & new to our very last Change Camp workshop so we can relax & revive together big style.

As the seasons change it’s time to turn our attention yet again to the opportunities and gifts of Autumn ahead. Where has 2019 gone? It’s been such a busy year! Does it feel like there’s been no time to stop and catch your breath. What with juggling family, home, business & work demands pulling us in different directions, stress just seems to finds a way to take hold and get a grip before we know it!

Time to down tools & retreat in mind. 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 priceless in managing that unhelpful or overwhelming stress which so easily takes root in these hectic & challenging times.

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
