Discovery Retreat 2024

MONDAY 22nd APRIL 2024, 3pm to FRIDAY 26th APRIL, 11am

Do you have a project or pathway that has tangled in your mind or become stuck in some way?

Inviting individuals or teams with great ideas to our Embodied Spirit Discovery Retreat in beautiful South West Wales

A four night stay on the coast of Wales for individuals and teams looking to unblock creativity and create new pathways

We invite you to simply come as you are, or to come together with your team to work through a sticking point or a tough problem you are facing. Perhaps it’s simply a feeling of being stuck that you haven’t been able to shift, or a practical issue that you can’t get your head around.

We believe in the seamless fusion of wellbeing practices and design thinking methodologies to create and cultivate an environment ripe for breakthroughs, and discovery.

Back to Nature, Back to Basics

When you bring together the power of nature, simplicity, creativity, and wellbeing tools, you can ignite profound transformation. Our retreat is a sanctuary designed for individuals and teams seeking to break free from the daily grind, reconnect with their essence, and find innovative solutions while fostering unity and connection.

Rediscover, Reconnect, Rejuvenate

You will have ample opportunities for rejuvenation and introspection. Time outside, coastal walks, yoga, meditation, breathwork, and workshop sessions, are all curated for you to find quiet moments of stillness that allow your creative brain to come online and open to what is beyond the ordinary. Of course there will be time to relax in the sauna and hot tub (and the possibility to book massages) too!

Strategic Development, Ideation and Prototyping

Together, we’ll explore unconventional pathways, disrupt norms, and forge new directions using storytelling, and holistic tools that unlock deeper creative insights. Through nature walks and reflective sessions, gain insights that fuel empathetic understanding—the bedrock of impactful ideation. Translate these insights into tangible prototypes using simple tools like cards, paper, and scissors, fostering an iterative process that aligns with the design thinking framework.

Embracing Discomfort for Growth

Embrace discomfort as a catalyst for growth. Sharing spaces that are curated and outside of what is familiar, encourages you to step out of your comfort zone and allow yourself to be challenged in a different way, fostering resilience and adaptability. We create an environment where personal and professional growth intertwine.

The breathwork session in the middle of the day was beyond anything I have done before.  It was more impactful than any other mindfulness and breathing exercises I have tried.  It was both a body and mind experience and provided a unique bonding experience.
