RETREATS

HART Holistic Support quote

Your living is determined not so much by what life brings you as by the attitude you bring to life; not so much by what happens to you as by the way your mind looks at what happens.

Kahlil Gibran

This year I am hosting a series of retreats – based on the HART Process – for women working through various milestones, namely:

Women Without Children
Women Approaching Menopause
Women Adjusting to Life with Chronic Diagnosis

Each retreat will offer dedicated and nurturing time to build confidence and community with peers. They are designed to give holistic support to empower you to rise above the label of being “childless”, “menopausal”, “ill”. We will meet in a country house hotel and, together, create a safe environment where you can honour your story and come to accept its impact on your life. You will find the tools to release limiting beliefs and trust that you can live your best life.

HOW DOES IT WORK?

There will be one day mini-retreats, intensive week-long retreats and a year-long programme of four retreats with support in between.

HART Holistic Support quote

The HART process has helped me develop ways to deal with old and new experiences using my own knowledge and self-awareness.

– Smiya

You will be invited to participate in a mixture of group work, individual reflection, one-to-one discussion and ceremonial observation.

There are several topics that come up time and time again when I speak to women that we will explore, including:

  • Finding your voice in explaining your situation
  • Managing triggers
  • Creating a legacy
  • Planning for the future

Of course, there will also be the opportunity to address anything you are specifically interested in.

WHAT IS INCLUDED?

HART Holistic Support Emotional Transformation heart condensation glass
HART Holistic Support Birth Mentoring

This is a holistic experience and will cater for your mind, body and spirit.

IS THIS FOR ME?

The following statements summarise some of the reasons why other women have said they are drawn to the kind of work we do during the HART process.

I invite you to sit quietly, take a deep breath and take a look at the statements, ticking as many as resonate with you. There is no right or wrong answer, it’s just good to connect with how you are feeling about where you find yourself right now. You might like to do this analogue and have the list printed off in hard copy. You can download it here: Download Checklist.

  • I feel overwhelmed by my situation and I’m not sure where to go for help.
  • I want things to be different but I have been reluctant to make changes.
  • I don’t feel connected to the people around me. I often feel like I’m the only one in this situation.
  • I would like to rise above the label of not having children / being a menopausal woman / having a chronic illness.
  • I am coming up to a significant birthday and I want to make some changes in my life.
  • I know there is another way to tackle this situation but I don’t know how to access it.
  • I would like to understand how my future can acknowledge my past…without being defined by it.
  • I am approaching menopause and would like to embark upon the aging process, on my own terms.
  • I want to expand the possibilities in my life but I feel as though something is holding me back.
  • I want to recognise and commemorate this as an important phase in my life.
  • I am often triggered by the things people say or do and I would like to find a way to feel stronger.
  • I would like to find a way of telling my story that feels more empowering.
  • I’ve read self-help books, taken courses and tried different therapies but I feel like I need support that is more personalised to me.
  • I am willing to do what it takes to stand taller, feel calmer and be more connected with myself and others.

Well done, you’ve taken your first step. You have begun to acknowledge this as an important milestone and started to think about how you might like to tackle it.

If you have ticked one or more of the statements, a HART Retreat may, very well, be the right for you. Get in touch and let’s set up some time to talk about taking the next positive step forwards.
