In November 2014, we're gathering with 19 women in the autumnal splendour of Somerset, England, to reflect, renew and reconnect to our truest most powerful selves. We'll be exploring our own personal mythologies, learning tools to enrich and empower our lives, and nourishing our souls with friendship, delicious food and, above all else, fun!
Unravel Your Story is a chance to explore where you've come from, where you are right now, and where you want to go next. We'll dig deep into the stories we tell ourselves and rewrite our tales to reflect the truest essence of who we are. Using a powerful blend of writing, story-telling, visualisation and group coaching you'll learn new ways to consciously choose your story for the next part of your life.
For five days you'll be held in a community of women who are ready and open to discovering more about who they are. You'll have all the space you need to unravel – time to read and write, time to take photographs, time to connect, time to explore the countryside. Time to recharge and REST.
We’re creating a safe, supportive space for you to explore and discover your true self.
- Five days to breathe out and focus on YOU.
- Five days to rest, heal and grow.
- Five days to reconnect with the light in you.
- Five days to get clarity on who you are and what you bring to the world.
- Five days to sink into the wonder of a community of women.
- Five days to be nourished and looked after.
- Five days to unravel in the best possible way.
We truly believe that we carry all the answers we need inside of ourselves – Unravel Your Story will help you find them.
What to expect
We’ll gather on Tuesday afternoon and after supper we’ll begin with an opening ceremony. Wednesday and Thursday we’ll have a programme of workshops, with time to reflect, connect and nap. On Friday we’ll take a day trip to the nearby town of Glastonbury to soak up the magic of the Chalice Well and the Tor, plus you’ll have free time to explore. Saturday we’re back at the house workshopping for the day, before a celebratory dinner in the evening followed by the closing ceremony. Sunday morning we’ll say our goodbyes after breakfast.
Where we’re staying
Picture a gorgeous Georgian manor house set deep in the English countryside, complete with elegant antiques and open fireplaces. Once a working farm, there is an organic garden and stables converted into spa treatment rooms. In the grounds are stone Buddhas, apple orchards, and a few roaming llamas! We’ll gather for meals in the dining room, toast crumpets by the fire in the library and drink endless cups of tea around the farmhouse kitchen table.
Where we’re sleeping
There’s a choice of rooms, including twin rooms, communal, and three deluxe singles. All bedrooms have their own bathroom, big cosy beds, thick duvets and crisp white sheets. You’ll be warm, rested and well looked after.
What we’re eating
Our in-house chef will prepare three gourmet meals a day made from locally-sourced ingredients with plenty of vegetarian and gluten-free options. Healthy snacks and drinks will be available all day, as well as all the crumpets and cake you can eat!
