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 personal mythologies, learning tools to enrich and empower our lives, and nourishing our souls with friendship, delicious food and, above all else, fun!
Tuesday 4th – Sunday 9th November 2014
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 eat and connect, time to explore the countryside. Time to recharge and REST.
- Five days to focus solely on YOU.
- Five days to rest, learn and grow.
- Five days to set your course for the next chapter of your life.
- Five days to get clarity on what you bring to the world.
- Five days to sink into the wonder of community.
- Five days to be looked after in a safe supportive space.
- Five days to unravel in the best possible way.
We’re creating a space for you to explore and disocver your true self.
We truly believe that we carry all the answers we need inside of ourselves — Unravel Your Story will help you find them.
“Firstly, I need to say how completely transforming just signing up for this retreat was for me. I knew it would be so awesome with you three, but it took me a long time to convince myself I was worth it. But then I arrived, and the transformation that occurred beforehand was nothing to the experience of being with all these fabulous women, people who I knew and loved completely by the first evening. I think that was one of the main gifts our leading vixens gave us, a safe space in which we could see the light of others and allow ourselves to be seen.
The strength I got from these few days was unbelievable – I felt so much more able to tackle my life when I went home and so inspired to direct my life consciously towards my soul’s desire. It did nothing less than accelerate my emotional growth by a few months. When I left, I felt freer, lighter and so clear in my vision for my life.
Also the Facebook group has been a revelation in the weeks afterward. Everyone is so happy to hold the space for those who need it that day, for good or bad, and after posting I always return to a sprinkling of kindnesses. Everyone is so eager to keep the party going, and I can feel it in my bones that these are lifelong friendships I’ve just made. When I look back on the days we spent at the retreat, the hope I feel almost bursts out of my chest.”

“Are you thinking about attending the Redfox Retreat? Allow me to whisper in your ear . . . go! Seriously. Don’t hesitate. Although I do understand first-hand what it is like to go back and forth over such a big decision — I was in your shoes — but now, I can tell you I am so deeply grateful that I simply closed my eyes and jumped.
So grateful. Sus, Sas & Meghan combined forces to create a gentle, restorative, deeply nurturing retreat that also popped me out of my ruts and got me realigned with my best path. I am no stranger to gatherings and have a fair understanding of what it takes to create a magical one and I can tell you these three women have it going on. (Plus? The setting and food are aces!)
This is a magical event. If it is calling you, answer the call. For me, it was one of the absolute best things I did in 2013″

What to expect
We’ll gather on Tuesday afternoon, have dinner and begin with an opening ceremony. Wednesday and Thursday are workshops. On Friday we’ll take a day trip to the nearby magical town of Glastonbury. Saturday we’re back at the house workshopping, with a final big dinner. Farewells on sunday.
Where we’re staying
Picture a gorgeous manor house set deep in the English countryside, complete with yurts and stone buddhas in the grounds. Once a working farm, the house is now a retreat centre with an organic walled garden and stables converted into spa treatment rooms. We’ll gather for meals in the dining room, toast crumpets by the open fire in the library and drink endless cups of tea around the farmhouse kitchen table.
Where we’re sleeping
Our beloved Georgian manor has 12 spacious bedrooms, each individually decorated and in keeping with the period of the house. All the bedrooms have super-comfortable large beds, thick duvets, quality bed linen, hanging space, drawers and plenty of beautiful touches. 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!
“Going to the Redfox retreat is one of the most self-loving things that I’ve ever done. I went with expectations for clarity and I got that and so much more. Because, although I was away, I was home. I felt comfortable in my skin, being myself, being the authentic me. No need to apologize, no need to strive, no need to doing anything but, be. I came away physically and emotionally restored, feeling healed and a part of a circle of Vixen sisters.”
