We made a tough decision a few weeks ago – we’re moving back to the UK so we can help Claire with her business and our grand-daughters. The good news is that we’re now able to concentrate on getting our beautiful farmhouse up and running as a well-being retreat. I’m flying out of Perth at the end of May and we’re really excited about our new project.
Here’s my conceptual statement for our new retreat:
Raw Horizons Retreat – Refuel, Refresh, Restart…
A well-being retreat for mind, body & soul focussing on empowering women (& men) to reclaim their life, health, vitality and sexuality.
By providing an elegant, luxurious, peaceful and safe environment for women (& men) we enable people to:
- Explore their inner beliefs and values ,
- Connect with their emotions and capabilities,
- Evaluate their goals and ambitions,
- Develop behaviour & thinking to assist them in attaining these new goals
- Reach their raw horizons…
Our concept centres on the holistic approach to reaching one’s full potential, based on:
- atmosphere & surroundings – our retreat is located in the beautiful North Yorkshire countryside where calm and serenity prevail providing a peaceful environment for reflective personal contemplation.
- Luxury & elegance – our 250 year old farm house has been beautifully restored with every modern convenience to provide sophistication, luxury and comfort.
- Eco-conscious – our food is organic or biodynamic – home grown where possible – and our toiletries are made from 100% natural ingredients, free of parabens, sulphates and other nasty ingredients.
- Food & diet – our cuisine is based on the living food concept using organic and provenance certified produce. We show how what you eat affects your mood and emotions. By removing highly processed food from your diet your thought processes clear and you become aware of your beliefs and feelings once again. Recipe demonstrations & classes show you how simple and easy these healthy meals are to prepare.
- Body – the health of your body is of utmost importance to reaching your new goals. By offering yoga, tai chi and pilates classes your inner core strength and general well-being is improved and enhanced by a gentle, low impact process. Pampering time is also important, so massages and pedicures are also essential offerings…
- Mind & Soul – by providing life coaching we help you explore your inner beliefs and values, assisting you to rediscover your goals and ambitions. Utilising NLP techniques and personal development coaching, you develop positive behaviour patterns to achieve your goals and aspirations.
I hope that sounds as exciting & interesting to you as it does to me!
