Summer Solstice Well-being Retreat | June 2023

dates & venue | schedule | accommodation options & pricing

Celebrate the Solstice, immerse yourself in nature, escape the demands of day-to-day life and ‘treat’ your’self’ to some well-deserved down time and breathing SPACE as you re-connect to centre whilst having some fun in the process!

Relax and rejuvenate at this beautiful modern eco-home in Sussex, surrounded by wild-flower meadows and bluebell woods in a rewilded wonderland. The invitation is to relax, restore, rejuvinate, replenish, re-energise and reconnect with yourself and nature…

There’s nearly ten acres to explore, two ponds, 2 fire pits and your own woods. Maybe the deer will pass by. Listen to the birdsong, a blackbird or maybe the woodpecker.

Explore healing meditations, mindful movement, somatic yoga, yoga nidra (deep relaxation) and Yin Yoga along with some more uplifting and energising practices in the mornings, led by Harmonise Founder, yoga teacher trainer and energy coach in progress Clare Francis. All practices are accessible and open to all.

Delight yourself and your body with healthy, nourishing, plant based & vegan food, all chef prepared by a qualified & experienced retreat chef.

The yang energy of summer is the perfect time of year for dancing! Raise your vibrations with a fire pit gathering and cacao ceremony as we welcome the forthcoming Summer Solstice (longest day of the year) on Saturday evening, with optional ‘free movement’ exploration and dancing outdoors (weather permitting).
