Join a relaxing, rejuvenating and reenergising weekend of Movement, Meditation & Contemplation in the serene and tranquil setting of Creacon.
As Winter ends and we move into Spring we have the opportunity to review and renew our intentions for ourselves.

During this unique retreat you will experience three different forms of movement - QiGong, Tai Chi & 5 Tibetans Vitality yoga, learning some simple exercises which can be practised daily.
We'll utilise EFT - Emotional Freedom Technique - a  simple yet very effective means of reducing stress, anxiety etc. - moving through and releasing what may be keeping us stuck and create new space in moving forward.
We will enjoy the benefits of Japa Mala Meditation, Heartful Meditation and guided visualisation, along with journaling.

As a Clinical Hypnotherapist, NLP (Neuro Linguistic Programming) practitioner, & EFT (Emotional Freedom Technique) practitioner, Phil works with clients in transforming the cause of the issue presented. Sensitive and kind, she builds an easy rapport with clients - essential for trust and the integrity of the work.

Phil expresses herself creatively with Mala making (used for Japa Meditation) which has over time evolved into facilitating Mala making workshops, which are fun and meditative. She loves nature and walking, taking the time to quietly Be.
