The support I received has been amazing since my first e-mail! I have felt well loved and looked after and have felt safe. I am thankful for all that you have shared with your own story and all these amazing healing gifts you have. Its really helped knowing how you understand trauma and healing that helps.
The whole set-up of the retreat made me feel relaxed and safe. I now feel more empowered and do have more clarity with how to move forward both in healing and life. I saw how detached I am from my body and my yoni, that emotions are moving energy to be released through breath, sound and movement, and that self pleasure is a way to connect to my body and that brings healing.
I have learned techniques that I can take forward to work into healing and integration feels really great. ~ Laura
The entire retreat was hugely valuable and transformational for me. It came at just the right time and was exactly what I needed. It was so good just to be able to talk at length with two people who are so understanding and wise and who are prepared to invest so much of themselves in helping me deal with my issues; and also who create the environment where I felt able to face up to these issues and accept that help. Which, given where I started from, is no mean feat! Also, both of your words of encouragement and acknowledgement of the progress I have made mean a tremendous amount to me. -John M
Throughout the retreat the space was so perfectly attuned to my need that it was difficult to see who led and who responded as the programme unfolded. No matter where I moved in my process, I felt deeply held in a place where nothing was too much and Catherine and her team brought such generosity and depth and richness and wisdom.- JR
How I found My Way Home
The time had come for me to turn and face myself. The space provided on this week long retreat has enabled me to do just that and to dive deep into my being and to stay in that depth exploring, discovering, remembering, healing and transforming.
I felt totally welcomed throughout the retreat from my preparation, through my arrival, through each day, through the retreat ending and through the integration process afterwards.. At all times there was so much care and attention to every detail.
Throughout the retreat the space was so perfectly attuned to my need that it was difficult to see who led and who responded as the programme unfolded. No matter where I moved in my process, I felt deeply held in a place where nothing was too much and Catherine and her team brought such generosity and depth and richness and wisdom. Catherine, her team and the space they created were steeped in tenderness, encouragement and invitation. All elements of my being felt deeply supported and nurtured including the physical environment of the beautiful workspace and accommodation and food.
I felt heard with everything I brought to the retreat – every word, every movement, every gesture, every piece of my story – all deeply listened to and woven into the process of my intensive. I discovered how to witness my life in a whole new way and my being felt so witnessed throughout the intensive. The guides and the space they created for me was filled with insights and profound experience and transformation.
Previously, I have experienced a variety of other personal development programmes which worked at depth, but I have never been able to reach such personal depth and to be held at every level of my being – physically, emotionally, my thinking and spiritually. Never before, have I left a programme so richly resourced and empowered to support my being going forward.
This retreat is life changing and it continues to support my changing life. It was as if my being was made of blotting paper throughout the retreat. I felt so safe and held and so I could totally open up and absorb my experiences and deepen into my wise being and into the mystery.
Catherine and her team shared so generously of themselves and their home I felt at ease. The space I encountered was open, trusting, generous, abundant and sacred. This intensive experience has brought my being to life in a way that I would never have imagined. I found my way home and I now have a deep sense of clarity, peace and the freedom to make choices about my life going forward…
I will forever be grateful to all that I experienced on this retreat. I emerged, resourced, deeply healed and able to really see the bigger story of my life in the past, present and future possibility. I would describe this retreat as unique and I believe that, going forward, my life cannot and will not ever be the same again… THANK YOU! – Fiona
