24hr Reset Retreat At May Hill Gloucs

With Danny Shmulevitch

RESET RETREAT MAY HILL
THE GATEWAY TO A DEEPER CONNECTION

The Reset Retreat at May Hill provides a gateway to deeper connection – to yourself, to nature, and to your colleagues. What you’ll learn in these precious hours can be used to inform your decision-making at work as well as at home and enable you to more easily access your intuition wherever you are.

​Your team will spend 24 hours in Danny’s company as he shares the timeless wisdom gained during forty years spent living and working among indigenous tribespeople. You will experience what it feels like to reconnect with your instinctual self by dissolving the separation between you and nature and explore a deeper, more physical way of feeling and connecting with the world.

What to expect

The environment is not separate from ourselves;
we are inside it and it is inside us; we make it and it makes us.” ​​

Davi Kopenawa, Yanomami tribesman

Arrival

You’ll arrive to a beautifully restored farmhouse in Gloucestershire, at the foot of May Hill, where you’ll be made to feel at home and well-cared for in every sense. We travel from from here, on foot, to the beautiful woodland and wild and open grassland of May Hill, a Site of Special Scientific Interest, with its spectacular views and natural green cathedral.

​Schedule

Arrive at May Hill Farm at 11.30am, where you’re invited for a delicious, locally-sourced lunch. You can either arrange your own travel independently, or we can arrange this for you. Danny will provide compelling insights, based on the wisdom of the indigenous people of Sinai and Kalahari, that underpin the purpose of this retreat.

After lunch, we’ll walk for a mile and half to our basecamp. Along the way, you’ll understand the orientation of the energy field, and the impacts of the way we live today on our ability to feel and connect with it.

You’ll spend the night sleeping under the stars in comfort, held by the beauty of the ancient woodland. Ideally, we recommend an overnight fast (no eating from lunch to breakfast the following morning). Our experience has shown that this is the best way to gain clarity in both mind and body. This is optional and we will support you if you choose note to take part.

At dawn, we’ll make our way to the top of May Hill to celebrate the expansion that is possible when we dissolve our separation from nature.

​We’ll break the fast with a vegetarian breakfast by the fire back at May Hill Farm. Here, there will be the opportunity to discuss the experience and explore the everyday ways in which we can use what we’ve learned to tune in and reconnect to our environment in our every day lives.

What to bring

Comfortable backpack
Good shoes
Sleeping bag
Torch
Appropriate clothing for the weather and
overnight stay in the forest
Notebook and pen
Water bottle

We’ll provide

Lunch on arrival day and breakfast the following morning, as well as herbal teas and water throughout your time with us.

Dates

The Reset Retreat at May Hill is organised as a bespoke group event for a team of up to 8 people within an agency or organisation. Contact us to discuss your requirements and for prices.

 

Active Listening

With Colin D Smith

“I wonder how many people I have heard in all my life and not listened to them”   John Steinbeck

Introduction

There is an irony in even talking about listening, after all, it is something we all do, right?  Most people would react to this by saying that there is nothing more they need to know. Yet, they would probably struggle to think of someone who listens to them very well.  Whilst it is recognised that being an active listener is crucial for building relationships and communicating effectively, research shows that 94% of us simply hear what others are saying and only 6% actively listen. We spend years learning to read, write and speak, yet little, if any, time is given to listening – our most used communication medium.  In a recent study by Korn Ferry, (a Global coaching company), developing ‘listening and empathy skills’ was either the first or second most sought after skill for coaching with CEOs, Senior Managers and Junior Managers.

Agency Series: Ancient Wisdom For The Modern Agency

With Katie Brindle

Think Chinese medicine is all acupuncture and herbs? If so, then think again…

Yang sheng is a huge part of Chinese medicine and a self-healing system which is over 5000 years old. It directly translates as ‘nourish life’ and is a self-healing system of simple methods which can easily be done before you leave for work, or at your desk. They are quick to learn and will put you back in the driving seat of good health. All in all, it’s a definitive health solution you never knew existed. This workshop is aimed specifically at marketing agency staff and is based on Katie Brindle’s best-selling book, Yang sheng – the art of Chinese self-healing.

What is it & how will it help?

Agency work is fast-paced and knowledge-based, so preserving your emotional health is paramount. And because it works very much with an ‘always on’ culture, the pressure can be immense in an environment dictated by budgetary restraints, constant deadlines, on-demand creativity and calculated risks.

Learning the simple techniques of yang sheng will dramatically improve your energy, boost your mood and restore your balance and calm. It’s about more than de-stressing. It’s about keeping your body and mind well, to stop you getting sick in the first place.  Chinese medicine is ancient, yet more relevant today than ever. Life has evolved, but the mechanisms of our body haven’t really changed.

Despite having such ancient roots, this yang sheng workshop deals with the very modern challenges of a career in marketing – from stress to sleeplessness and anxiety to poor digestion. That’s because it’s based on a holistic and sophisticated understanding of how we function and how our mental and physical health are intimately connected.

We’ll teach you how to safeguard mental health in your agency by equipping you with a simple, yet hugely effective coping strategies. You’ll learn how to carve out minutes during the work day to calm your nervous system and instantly switch your mind off for quick, yet effective re-boots. These techniques are not only powerfully effective, they’re fun and soothing, too.

During this workshop, acclaimed practitioner of Chinese medicine Katie Brindle will reveal ground-breaking techniques to transform the way you look after your agency staff’s health. We’ll teach you daily rituals that are as quick and simple as brushing your teeth. They fit perfectly into a hectic schedule, enabling you to deal with stress as it happens, rather than letting it build up in the body.

The Yang sheng techniques you’ll learn will help:

*Boost your energy levels
*Calm your nervous system
*Restore balance
*Reduce stress
*Relax and rejuvenate

Some of the techniques will be new to you, some may seem unusual, some you will instantly love. But they are all simple to learn and quick to do. This experience can be delivered from a 2 hour workshop to a day-long masterclass with qigong and gua sha experts, fully tailored to your requirements. You’ll have access to ongoing support as well: in the form of tools, online clinics and live feeds.

A drop of prevention is better than a bucket load of cure.’

Agency Series: Overcoming Imposter Syndrome

With The Life Adventure

Ever felt like a fraud at the agency? You’re not alone and it’s more common than you think. Over 70% of people have experienced the feeling of being a fake at one time in their life. Take these quotes for example

You think, “Why would anyone want to see me again in a movie? And I don’t know how to act anyway, so why am I doing this?

– Meryl Streep

The philosopher Bertrand Russell wrote:

The whole problem with the world is that fools and fanatics are always so certain of themselves, and wiser people so full of doubts

The vast array of problems we face as human beings require the best people to step up. But many hold back because they feel that luck, rather than ability, lies behind their successes. They dread that one day, some person or event will expose them for the fraud that deep down they believe themselves to be. This often gets worse around pitch time. Far from being a realistic self-assessment, the impostor syndrome mind-trap prevents people from believing in themselves, to the detriment of us all.

When I was younger, I just did it. I just acted. It was just there. So now when I receive recognition for my acting, I feel incredibly uncomfortable. I tend to turn in on myself. I feel like an impostor. It was just something I did.

– Emma Watson

Session Outline

Have you had that nagging feeling that you’ll be found out, or are you waiting to feel more confident before you realise your ambitions? In this interactive session, delivered as 1.5 hour workshop (and can also be run for a longer durations if required), we’ll dive into uncovering the keys to confidence and overcoming imposter syndrome. You will uncover what drives you, learn how to identify, challenge and replace unhelpful limiting thoughts and beliefs and be introduced to the concept of imposter syndrome. You’ll come away with new strategies, tools and an action plan and uncover an altogether more confident you.

In a 1.5 hour session specific to marketing agencies we’ll cover:

  • Introduction to the session and a definition of imposter syndrome, with an explanation of the difference between a healthy self-image and imposter syndrome.
  • An ice breaker focused on building confidence and relaxing into the session so everyone feels comfortable
  • Imposter Syndrome – a self assessment quiz and group discussion
  • Sharing examples of imposter syndrome – TEDx video and discussion or, if possible, we encourage senior staff from the organisation to share their personal experience of imposter syndrome including some questions and answers
  • Building on the pre-work we’ve done, you’ll be introduced to the unconscious inner divers that could be fuelling your imposter syndrome
  • Learn how to identify, challenge, and replace unhelpful thoughts and beliefs
  • Introduction to the REBT tool and practice in pairs to counter imposter syndrome
  • Action planning and take aways

When I won the Oscar, I thought it was a fluke. I thought everybody would find out, and they’d take it back. They’d come to my house, knocking on the door, “Excuse me, we meant to give that to someone else. That was going to Meryl Streep” – Jodie Foster

Ancient Wisdom For A Modern Workplace

With Katie Brindle

Always considered Chinese medicine was just acupuncture and herbs? If so, then think again…

This workshop has been created specifically for our business series and is based on the best-selling new book Yang sheng – the art of Chinese self-healing.  And despite being thousands of years old, it’s hugely relevant to people today in the modern workplace. Why? Because it has an incredibly sophisticated understanding of how your body works and offers a vast array of phenomenally powerful every day self-healing techniques which you can easily use to help alleviate stress whilst at work.

What is it & how will it help?

Life has undoubtedly evolved.  But the mechanisms of our body haven’t really changed over thousands of years and despite having such ancient roots, yang sheng helps us deal with the challenges of modern life – from stress to sleeplessness and anxiety to poor digestion. That’s because it’s based on a holistic and sophisticated understanding of how we function – and how our mental and physical health are intimately connected.

Little-known in the West, and even in modern-day China, Yang sheng is a 5000 year old self-healing system with proven, ancient methods that help us deal with modern day life. We believe it’s actually the definitive preventative health solution that most of us never even knew existed.

Consider this

Are you sleeping well? You may not be a hardcore insomniac, but do you wake up exhausted? You may not be sick, but are you on top form every day? Do you feel strong in yourself? Are you calm in stressful situation? Do you bounce out of bed each morning, ready for action? Sadly, the stresses of corporate life leaves most of us feeling under par at least some of the time.

Learning the simple techniques of yang sheng that we’ll teach you in this session will dramatically improve your energy, boost your mood and restore your balance and calm. It’s about more than de-stressing. It’s about understanding how to keep your body in such good condition that you won’t get ill in the first place.

During this workshop, acclaimed practitioner of Chinese medicine Katie Brindle will reveal ground-breaking techniques to transform the way you look after your health. You’ll learn daily rituals to use both at home and in the office which are as simple as brushing your teeth. They’ll fit perfectly into a hectic schedule of life and work, enabling you to deal with stress as it happens, rather than letting it build up in the body.

The Yang sheng techniques you’ll learn will help:

*Boost your energy levels
*Calm your nervous system
*Restore balance
*Reduce stress
*Relax and rejuvenate

Some of the techniques will be new to you, some may seem unusual, some you will instantly love. But they are all simple to learn and quick to do. This experience can be delivered from a 2 hour workshop to a day-long masterclass with qigong and gua sha experts, fully tailored to your requirements. You’ll have access to ongoing support as well: in the form of tools, online clinics and live feeds.

A drop of prevention is better than a bucket load of cure.’

Ancient Chinese proverb 

Awe & Wonder

With Francesco Dimitri

A sense of wonder has been the foundation of industry, art, and science: people as different as Einstein, Picasso, and Steve Jobs were guided by wonder.

The notion of this ties in with recent psychology studies which have demonstrated that learning to regain a sense of wonder makes us better at teamwork. But while wonder comes naturally to children, it becomes harder to hold on to it as we grow up.  When we lose our sense of wonder, we lose engagement with our work, becoming less effective, and more vulnerable to stress and anxiety.

Awe & Wonder can be delivered as a one hour talk or half/full day workshop for organisations and will help you reconnect with wonder in a work environment, bringing together the wisdom of adulthood with the fertile foolishness of childhood.

Francesco’s latest book on the subject, called ‘That Sense of Wonder’ is one of the best books we’ve ever read in a long time.

Breath Retreat In Lanzarote (3-7 nights)

With Alan Dolan
What’s it all about and why go on this life-changing retreat?

Have you ever watched a small child at play? Completely absorbed in the moment and totally unselfconscious. Perfect authenticity. No facades. Simply being. It’s a great reminder of our inherent ability to live this way. So when did we lose that ability and how do we get back there?

From a very early age we are taught how NOT to be authentic. Parents give children signals as to what is ‘ok’ and ‘not-ok’, and children adopt strategies in order to regain approval. For children, non-authentic behaviour has a short term gain. Over time however it becomes the norm, leading us further and further away from who we really are.

Our relationships with others are a direct reflection of the one we have with ourselves. You can’t hope for intimacy with another person if you aren’t intimate with yourself. If you’re looking for authenticity you need to be authentic with yourself. If you want respect from others you need to be respectful with yourself. If you’d like to see through the facades of others you must get behind your own facade first.

Breathwork is your ticket back to the remembrance of your authentic self, a journey which can open you further than you ever imagined possible. It’s the best adventure you will ever have, and unlike even the most fabulous holiday it doesn’t stop when you get back home. It’s literally the ultimate trip.

Breathwork allows you to lighten up, and realise that you are already ok as you are. The facade you’ve spent years constructing will simply fall away, allowing you to spend time with your true self, learning your needs and wants. You can disengage from the drama, find your centre, find joy inside yourself – and consciously create a life you are happy to be a part of.

The Healing Power of Breath

Humans have been aware of the healing power of their breath for millennia. Through the centuries we’ve developed a vast array of breathing practices, all designed to bring about physical and emotional wellbeing and connect with our deeper selves.

But in today’s society, we often neglect our bodies’ built-in capabilities. Imagine owning the highest specification TV in existence, keeping it plugged in on standby and then living with it for years and years without ever actually turning it on. The fact is, most of us live in ‘standby mode’ most of the time. The most powerful mechanism is literally right beneath our noses waiting to be explored, yet we rarely give it more than a passing thought.

Conscious breathing is a powerful and safe way to infuse the body with oxygen and energy, recharging our own (often depleted) systems to work to their healing capacity. And it facilitates openings to higher levels of consciousness, allowing us to tap into our deeper resources and live better, easy, more joyful lives.

With breathwork we can enjoy optimum health, mental and emotional clarity, and experience an ever-deepening relationship with ourselves. It’s the means by which we can embark upon the ultimate journey: the one where we discover who we really are. And it can facilitate the growth needed in order for us to transform into who we’re capable of becoming.

What you’ll gain (and we’ve experienced it ourselves, so know all of these to be true)
  • Be the healthiest you’ve ever been
  • Feel completely energised
  • Experience deeply nourishing peace and relaxation
  • Move beyond whatever is standing between you and your happiness
  • Become aware of emotions halting your personal growth
  • Let go of emotional baggage permanently and easily
  • Release anxiety and alleviate depression
  • Develop a new dimension to your yoga and/or spiritual practice
  • Understand the nature of spirit
  • Open your breath and expand your life
The Technique

All of Alan Dolan’s work is based around one simple breathing technique, which you can vary depending on how you want to feel or what you’d like to achieve. You’ll be taught how to use conscious breathing effectively and be guided and supervised as you go along – paving the way for really transformative experiences.

Lanzarote and the villa where you’ll be staying

Situated just 79 miles off the coast of Africa, Lanzarote is the most easterly of the Canary Islands and has been Alan’s home for the past 11 years. In 2011, after more than a year of searching, Alan found the ‘Dream Place’ for these retreats – a sanctuary of peace and seclusion in a rural location with sea and volcano views, ten minutes from the beautiful beach at Famara.

The villa is in an elevated position, with terraced patio areas and private, shady spots to lounge. The 5-star accommodation is mostly arranged around the sheltered private pool, with two of the rooms opening directly out to it. Nearby, you can soak in the hot tub after your twice-daily breath sessions and drink in the awe-inspiring vistas as the sunsets.

Your 1-1 breath sessions with Alan always take place in the complete privacy of the therapy room. And as there are only ever a maximum of four guests staying at any one time, you can be as private or as involved as you wish to be – most people choosing to do both at different times during their stay. Those attending often say the other people present during their stay really add to their experience.

The Rooms

THE LOFT

The Loft

A light and airy double room with floor to ceiling windows, sea/volcano views and direct access to the pool terrace. The space has been furnished using a mixture of Indonesian, Spanish and Turkish pieces, resulting in a relaxed, stylish environment. The teak four-poster bed and ensuite bathroom/dressing area complements the living space beautifully.

THE SUITE

The Suite

The spacious Suite is made up of a double bedroom, bathroom and lounge. Both the bedroom and the lounge have patio doors opening directly onto the pool area. The lounge can also be used as a second bedroom, making The Suite ideal for friends or family who wish to visit the retreat together.

SKYVIEW

Skyview Room

A double bedroom with ensuite bathroom, with an atrium skylight perfect for watching the stars. The high-spec bathroom also features a shower/steam room.

The Food

Delicious and healthy, Alan’s vegetarian cuisine is prepared by his resident chef from local, seasonal produce.

Other information

Hiring a car is recommended as the villa is in a rural location, and if you really want to explore the island it’s a must. Car hire is very reasonably priced and can be arranged on your behalf, but you will still be met at the airport irrespective of whether or not you hire a car. It’s remarkably easy to drive around the island; there is very little traffic and it’s a great way to experience the incredible landscapes.

If you don’t want to drive, don’t worry – Alan is happy to drop you at the beach, and half or full island day tours are also available. You can walk on pristine sandy beaches, surf at Famara or swim in the crystal clear ocean, go on nature walks or volcano climbs, or soak up the local culture at fiestas; Lanzarote really is the most magical of islands. It enjoys a mild dry climate with average daytime temperatures ranging from about 21°C in January to 29°C in August. With total annual rainfall at just 140mm, so your time on this retreat is likely to be bathed in warm, dry weather whatever time of year you visit.

What’s included
  • One 60-minute 1-1 breath session each day (ex. arrival + departure days)
  • One 60-minute group breath session each day (ex. arrival + departure days)
  • Full board vegetarian meals and drinks prepared by our chef
  • Airport transfers

Prices

Having experienced this retreat personally, we can affirm that the longer your stay, the greater your experience. While 4 nights is enough for a taste of breathwork, 6 nights is the average length of stay – and it allows you the time and space to tap in to your deeper resources.

All prices are in GB Pounds. You can plan in additional breath sessions at £100 each – let us know when booking. Also ask us about massages and volcano excursions.

If you’d like us to arrange flights for you, we can, otherwise you’re free to organise your own.

 

My Breathing Space retreat was just that… space for myself to focus on me, just me. Alan’s experience, natural compassion and intuition enabled me to learn about myself and to ‘clear’ emotionally and physically. At the end of the week I felt stronger, clearer, spiritually and literally ‘lighter’… a life changing week. I am resolved to make it an annual retreat. Worth every penny and more.”

Emma, Cambridge

Alan Dolan is one of the best alternative practitioners/ breathworkers I’ve had the privilege to work with. His level of care for and intuitive understanding about the needs of his clients is second to none and I highly recommend him to any and everyone embarking on a journey of self discovery and/or looking for a way to live a happier, healthier and more peaceful life”

 Naomie Harris, Oscar, Bafta & Golden Globe nominee

I have practiced yoga for 8 years and meditation for 5 years and have always struggled with breathing and connecting the breath. I felt constricted across the chest and stuck. I knew I wasn’t breathing to my full capacity and that was the motivating factor for my initial interest in transformational breath. My actual experience extended way beyond any expectations I ever believed for what could be achieved through breathing! The breath work took me on a huge healing journey in 5 days and for the first time in my life I could feel my heart softening and opening. The work Alan does is incredible, truly life changing and transformative – Thank you for an amazing experience, Alan.”

Building Better Relationships

With Samantha Clarke

This can be delivered as a talk or we can create fully bespoke workshops and training programs for your organisation, if you are looking to resolve a specific challenge.

As individuals we may be highly brilliant, talented, witty and caring but few of us live or work in a vacuum; no one is an island. So it pays to learn how to cultivate and nurture relationships with others. Doing so can help us lead enriched and deeper lives, as well as be successful in the workplace.

Humans are social beings. We long to be understood, accepted and feel that we belong. However we are not born with natural relationship building abilities but like all skills it can be learned and mastered if we are willing to recognise the need and that this takes time and effort.

This session will showcase the tools to help build better relationships with everyone by:

  • revealing the key elements of healthy relationships
  • enhancing effective emotional communication and connection skills
  • providing insights on how to respond better to others
  • identifying how to regulate conflict with others

Prices and more details available once we know your requirements. Please contact us to discuss.

 

Canadian Wilderness of Wonders

With The Life Adventure

Imagine the magic of being whisked away from your busy everyday life to remote peace and solitude amid the magnificence of the Canadian Cariboo Mountains wilderness. This is a really special adventure, accessible only to a very lucky few, in spectacular remote high mountain valleys with beautiful lakes, grizzly bears and wildlife and spectacular mountain scenery.

Let it touch your soul – invigorate and recharge your inner being. This pure life experience in a place where your only neighbours are mountain goats, mountain caribou, grizzlies and blackbears, moose and wolves. It’s just you and the wilderness. It’s a rustic yet satisfyingly complete spirit quest and way of interacting with nature on its own terms where time is seemingly endless.

This signature wilderness adventure destination in the Cariboo Mountains in central British Columbia offers you the rare opportunity to connect with nature and “see through the eyes of the forest”. We work with one of Canada’s top bear and wildlife specialists in bear, recognised as the pioneer in the bear viewing industry traversing the same paths as the bears and wildlife from the salmon bearing rivers of a rare interior rainforest to the alpine beauty of the Cariboo Mountains.

Deep in British Columbia’s remote Cariboo Mountains lies a brand new floating ‘glampsite’, the only one of its kind in Canada. Moored on Quesnel Lake (the deepest known fjord lake in the world) it’s run by our guide who is known as the Bear Whisperer due to his special relationship with the area’s numerous grizzlies. The camp is small but comfortable and holds two smart safari-style tents containing double beds and loo fixed to a floating platform around 20 metres from the shoreline. And it’s the only place operating on this basis almost exclusively in an area the size of Switzerland. So what we really love about this is that it puts you deep into a place that few humans ever get to go.

Each morning you’ll head out on a boat through the Mitchell River system, a mist-bloated place where garlands of lichen hang wet and heavy from centuries-old red cedars and colossal bull moose crash through the forest.  The interior forest also has its very own climate.  At certain times of the year, too, nearby ice fjords are ablaze with sockeye salmon ploughing steadily upstream on their migration route to spawn. And as you drift along, huge bald eagles float down on to willowy tree branches and the screeches of stellar jays fills the air.

And the bears, oh the bears. They come thick and fast as you meander upstream.  From huge males crossing the river in front of you, to sows with cubs, fully submerged, feasting on the hoards of salmon. Gary, your guide, spends his life with these bears and knows them by name and can second-guess their behaviours.

Floating Glamping Lodge

 

The floating glamping lodge, is in a quiet bay on the deepest fjord lake on earth near the mouth of one of the major salmon spawning rivers. From here you’ll experience a wide diversity of incredible adventures that include exceptional bear and wildlife viewing, birding, walking safaris through the rare interior rainforest with trees over 1000 years old, kayaking, forest bathing, hiking in rich boreal forests and alpine, exploring unique ecosystems with rare plants and spectacular wild flowers.

The lodge equipped with luxury wall tents gives you 360 degree mountain views where you can see bears and other wildlife from dawn to dark. And don’t forget a view like this ensures the brilliance of the nighttime skies where the stars that brighten the heavens are only dimmed when the Northern Lights/Aurora Borealis dance across the skies. It’s the ideal place to disconnect from real life, reinvigorate and re-energise. You’ll feel the freedom and exhilaration of breathing fresh pure mountain air and the everyday stresses of life slowly ebb away in the peaceful quiet of this mountain paradise.

From the lodge you’ll have:

  • Magical 360-degree mountain views, star gazing, northern lights at night; wake to the haunting early morning call of the loon.
  • Forest Bathing (known as Shinrin-Yoku – connecting with nature with all your senses bringing a sense of balance and well being, re-energizing and reinvigorating your body, soul creating mindful peace). Otherwise known as “seeing with the eyes of the forest”.
  • Walking through a rare ancient interior rainforest to grizzly bear viewing sites.
  • Wildlife that may be seen includes grizzlies, black bears, mountain goat, moose, Mountain Caribou, wolf, mule deer, lynx, wolverine, birds.
  • Grizzly bears and salmon on wilderness rivers by jet boat, wildlife, birds and nature.
  • Walking safari through rare ancient old growth forest to grizzly/wildlife viewing sites.
  • Hiking from old growth forest through boreal forest and into the alpine.
  • Kayaking the world’s deepest fjord lake, exploring ancient old growth forest and limestone caves.
  • Raw nature, wild flowers and plants, and unique ecosystems.
  • Guides with over 30 years experience guiding the wilderness traveller

Durations and itineraries are totally flexible. We can add city stays to either side if you wish, or you can simply fly in to the wild and remain there for the duration of your stay. Contact us to discuss details and we’ll provide you with a cost to include or exclude flights.

Many of us make choices that are influenced by the conditions surrounding us – our family, friends, peers, organisations and society. Many of these choices serve to undermine our resilience.

This workshop is available as part of a corporate subscription package. Contact us for details.

Presenter Danny Shmulevitch

Danny’s search for stillness began as a young child growing up in the Sinai desert. He lived with the semi-nomadic Sawad tribe near his family home in Galilee; his formative years spent sleeping fireside under the stars - free from the physical and human confines most of us accept as our reality. ​For over two decades, Danny worked with the Bedouin tribes to lead retreats and longer journeys in the Sinai desert. They were attended by ecological and spiritual leaders and other people who came to witness how we expand when we connect deeply with ourselves in nature. He set up the The Makhad Trust in 2002 to support the preservation of the natural heritage of the Bedouin and other nomadic communities of the world. He also led the restoration of oasis gardens throughout the Sinai region and built community wells, as well as a school. In the remote Amdo region of Tibet, he worked with indigenous communities to restore the murals in the Lukhang garden, built by Dalai Lama VI in the 17th century, and the Mani Walls near the Terton Chogar Monastery.

Presenter Colin D Smith

Colin D Smith is known as ‘The Listener'. He is one of the UK’s foremost listening skills specialists, working both with individuals, as well as for teams within organisations who want to be heard, think smarter, and transform their business and personal relationships through active listening. He has an innate ability to actively listen to people, enabling them to articulate their creative ideas, address their personal concerns, express their feelings more easily, and to achieve their personal, professional and life goals. Having had a varied and successful career in consultancy, business development, IT and customer support across many sectors, including finance, motor, retail and the NHS, in looking back he realised that much of his success was due to his listening and connecting abilities. This led him to develop a series of programmes to develop these skills in others, the importance of which organisations are now waking up to. His inquisitive and curious mind leads him to explore unusual, thought provoking, yet grounded observations and alternative approaches to business, people, systems, change and innovation.

Presenter Katie Brindle

Katie has been on a long journey, from patient to acclaimed Chinese medicine practitioner, best-selling author and founder of the Hayo’u Method. After a car accident ended her dreams of becoming an opera singer, she was eventually healed by Chinese medicine. Indeed, she was so inspired that Katie decided to train as a practitioner. Her mission in life became to help others using the remarkable healing system of yang sheng, the self-care part of Chinese medicine. Whilst Western medicine has transformed health care as we know it, there’s a gap that it doesn’t address and that’s the ‘almost-well’, the ‘not feeling so good’, the tired out and over-stressed. This is a gap she has seen Chinese medicine – specifically yang sheng – fill beautifully. She founded the award-winning Hayo’u Method and published her best-selling book: both of which distil ancient Chinese medicine techniques into simple daily rituals. Katie has been working in Chinese medicine since 2002. Alongside practising massage and reflexology, she studied TCM and qualified as a Five Elements Chinese medical practitioner, graduating from the UK’s Integrated College of Chinese Medicine. She’s now committed to increasing awareness of this ancient wisdom and encouraging people to master their own health. Her aim is to make Chinese medicine achievable and accessible. And as habitual as brushing your teeth.

Presenter Dr Shomit Mitter

Shomit comes from an intellectual perspective, with a M.Phil from Oxford University and a Ph.D from Cambridge University. He trained as a hypnotherapist under Dr. Keith Hearne and Dr. Roger Woolger, and has spent 30 years studying ancient Indian, Chinese, Egyptian and Shamanic systems of healing. Much of his work over the years has involved an amalgamation of these systems with cutting edge modern western hypnotherapy. The results are both powerful and easy to use. If you get the chance to enroll in some of his mind-blowing workshops, take it. The meditations are some of the most powerful we’ve ever experienced and the stories of his mother’s friendship with Mother Teresa remind you that you’re in the presence of a unique individual who’s giving you a unique insight into the world. If you ever need reminding that the world is a stage and we are merely actors taking up our roles, then best let Shomitt lead you through it, with intelligence, awe and finesse.

Presenter Samantha Clarke

Over the past exciting and varied 13 years plus of experience, Samantha has worked as a brand and strategy consultant, trend and innovation researcher, emerging markets connector, style and personal brand educator and lecturer on personal and work development.

Basically all things to do with providing happiness, ideas and change. As a result she has developed a portfolio career between lecturer & changemaker, happiness consultant and style educator, so needless to say, we’re delighted to have Samantha as part of our team.
