During this retreat, we will help you connect with mind, body and place. Throughout the weekend, we will engage you in a variety of carefully curated moments. From personalised check-ins with how your body moves, through abseiling, exploring the local environment and reflection activities, you will leave the retreat with a new found, or rediscovered, sense of adventure.
