A five-night retreat with Greg & Julie
True power is within us all – it is the realisation of our true nature.
A truth that has become obscured by the mental, emotional and physical imbalances caused by our experiences and traumas over many lifetimes.
But that truth is still there (it’s who we are!), and to regain our awareness of it – to consciously embody the loving, still, peaceful, power within – just requires that we awaken to that which lies at the core of our being.
There’s nothing to achieve or gain; empowerment is already within, waiting to be discovered.
Which is, after all, our birthright and our destiny.
During this retreat of inner discovery we will open to the power of our Divine nature by: –
Letting go of the fears and desires that trap us in the past
Journeying to the shamanic realms to discover and heal our mental, emotional, and physical wounds.
Practicing meditations that open us to the loving power within ourselves.
Working with the ancient arts of Tai Chi and Chi Gung.
Learning how to incorporate mindfulness into our daily life.
Connecting with the healing power of nature (including nature spirits).
Opening to our intuitive wisdom.
Deepening awareness of ourself, others and the mystical realms of reality.
Enjoying each other’s company (and great food) in the extraordinary energy of the spiritual heart of UK.
There will also be plenty of time each day to explore and connect with the local area and its energies, including the Tor, Chalice Well and gardens, Glastonbury Abbey, Holy Thorn, Wells cathedral, the ancient oaks Gog and Magog, and the eclectic mix of shops and eateries in the town. You can also enjoy relaxing in your cottage on this beautiful complex; perhaps making use of the on-site heated indoor swimming pool, steam room or the spa (offering an extensive range of healing, massage and beauty treatments), or by walking in the beautiful countryside on the doorstep.
Suitable for beginners and those with experience.
Price: £775 for 5-nights in a twin room in holiday cottage accommodation (which includes a kitchen and lounge) within walking distance of the Tor. There are a limited number of single rooms available for a supplement of £100. The price includes accommodation, all teachings, and a 2-course evening meal each day. It excludes breakfast, lunch, and transport.
Location: Middlewick Cottages, Wick Lane, Glastonbury, BA6 8JW.
Dates: 10th November (arrive 4pm to start at 5pm) – 15th November 2023 (finish at 10am)

Feedback from previous Glastonbury retreats
“What a brilliant retreat in Glastonbury – thank you so much. Everything seemed perfect – the teaching, the cottages, the company, the food and even the wind on the Tor. Plus a beautiful full moon.” Wendy
“As I left and drove home I was feeling so much calmer and more at peace inside after your healing retreat… and still do. Feeling much more connected to myself. Thank you to you and Greg for holding a healing space for us, filled with wise and loving energy.” Ann
“I’ve thoroughly enjoyed the retreat at Glastonbury and felt a real deepening. It’s been lovely to connect with old friends and new as well. I so love how you and Greg work together- you really live and epitomise the words ‘all you need is love’.” Angela
“Thank you for everything and all that you gave us this week, it was absolutely wonderful.” Liz
“Thank you for such a wonderful retreat! It’s been so nice to take time out and go deeper, and although very hard -the death ceremony on the first night was the best reboot! It is always so beautiful to meditate in a group. The insights have been powerful, and I think they’ll have lasting benefits. Having that combination of outdoors and indoor sessions was wonderful!” Resh
“Thank you for giving your time, energy and hearts to share your knowledge and wisdom. It was a privilege to meet you both and I feel very thankful and humbled. I am home now and will continue to assimilate and process all I have learned. For perhaps the first time in my life I have no questions, no fights to pick, no explanations needed. No desire to rebel. I feel like I have come home and that all that is left is love and self-awareness.” Charlotte

“Thank you for holding such an inspirational retreat. Yet again I return home energised and knowing more about myself than I did before.
Samye Ling is an amazing place. Holy ground indeed. Wild spaces touch my soul and likewise touch those of all around too. I feel it. The Night Sky and the contented ducks just confirm this.
I am full of gratitude to you both for sharing your time and wisdom. I hope to be a conduit and pass it on to all who wish to know. My work colleagues are all so interested. I tell them stories and share insights as they present themselves. I throw in a bit of humour too. We laugh a lot. I share because I can and because they are curious.” Charlotte
