BE Uniquely You

Transformational Knowledge Retreats

Do you feel out of balance? Stressed, tired, unhappy, unhealthy, or like you just don’t know why you are here or what you are doing?

This is simply a symptom of disconnection with who you are and your unique purpose.

All the great teachers of philosophy and spirituality have stated for eons that “we are all one”. However (like each individual cell that makes up the whole of the body) we are also uniquely individual, with a particular role to play and a certain purpose to fulfill within that one great whole.

Disconnection with this unique purpose, through our modern lives filled with media, no down time to reflect, unhealthy habits causing illness or the general demands and responsibilities of family life, relationships or career can easily pull us out of ourselves, even if we are doing the very things we have always dreamed of doing.

How would it be to know yourself better, to have a clearer sense of who you are and your unique purpose while at the same time feeling more grounded and connected to the whole?

Time and space to breathe, reflect, think and take care of your mental, physical and spiritual health is an essential part of “living the dream”. Without the clarity of thought and feelings of well being that come from this we simply are lost in our struggles to keep moving in an ever faster world, losing our balance and connection the faster we go.

On “BE Uniquely You” Courses and Retreats we help you to take a moment in time to reflect on some really important questions so that you are able to hear your inner voice and bring yourself back into balance to face the daily life of the outside world with renewed purpose and inner strength.

We call our courses Retreats because the origin of the word “retreat” (according to the Meriam Webster Dictionary) is: “1.) To withdraw away from a dangerous or unpleasant situation. 2.) A place of privacy or safety . 3.) A period of group withdrawal for prayer, meditation, study or instruction under a director”. And “transformation” means: “A complete or major change in someone’s or something’s appearance, form etc.”

BE Uniquely You Courses and Retreats (for one single day, a weekend, a week or a longer ongoing time) aim to imbue you with the knowledge and tools to transform your life and circles of influence through the sharing of ancient understandings, knowledge and modern interpretations on reflection, self love, healthy lifestyle and natural therapy techniques. While also giving you plenty of space to breathe, live and reflect.

Knowledge, and indeed self- knowledge specifically, leads to acceptance of others, a sense of freedom, connectedness and peace. For health practitioners it is essential to have this time to expand your knowledge and grow as an individual so that you can help your clients to do this.

The nature of your transformational process is ongoing, if you want to keep developing and growing as an individual and to continue to have sustained results. This is why, outside the Retreat space, your personal development is supported through one to one sessions and group meetings. Any time you need to dip back into the Retreat we are there to help.
