Every now and again, I'm lucky enough to have a window available to go on retreat. It's hard to over-state the value of a few days away for some deep self-care and a change of scene (and perspective).
Having been in the wellbeing and retreats industry for some while now, and having reviewed different retreats as journalist before this, I have a very clear understanding of what kind of experience I'm looking for.
Yet despite (or because of?) the vast choice now available, both at home and abroad, I usually struggle to find my 'perfect' retreat.
I realised only a few days ago that our new Norfolk-based Mindfulness for Wellbeing weekends are in fact my person vision of a 'perfect retreat', 20 years after I took my first yoga and meditation classes, and almost ten years after we launched Satvada Retreats.
