Join us on our deeply nurturing and restorative, one day retreat, in luxurious surroundings, in the heart of Suffolk.
♦ Does it bother you, when the same trigger resurfaces?
♦ Do you feel overwhelmed, when trying to find balance between life, health, relationships and career?
♦ Is it difficult to speak about emotional struggles?
♦ Do you need help understanding, why you may face the same personal blocks in life?
♦ Are you under pressure to deliver workloads, whilst simultaneously dealing with repetitive burnout or insomnia?
♦ Are you anxious to ask for support, with your mental and spiritual well-being?
♦ Are you going through trauma, grief, loss, have suicidal tendencies or feel “lost” and have no-one to talk to?
♦ Do you consider yourself to have high stress, extreme fatigue and feelings of emptiness?
♦ Do you have a lack of financial well-being and feel as if you’re failing to make progress or be successful?
♦ Do you find that you’re unable to concentrate or focus and act impulsively or indecisively?
♦ Are you worried about the future?
If any of these are relatable to you or perhaps even a friend, family member or loved one, then this retreat may be the perfect space for healing, to learn self help techniques and form long-lasting companionships, with people going through similar experiences or who are facing the same inner challenges.
The all-male retreat focuses on enabling self-insight and empowerment. Learning points will cover the psychology of self-development and personality, including strengths psychology. The retreat will combine Inner Child Therapy and Shadow Work. Learning how to reconnect with your inner child and re-parent yourself, is a powerful and quick technique, to free you from emotional and mental issues, that are not serving your highest good and purpose. We’ll also be exploring what healthy masculinity means and shine a spotlight on the masculine and feminine energies that reside in us all, in order to tap into the innate power of both. This will help you lead an even more fulfilling and authentic expression of who you are.
This retreat is designed to empower you, with greater knowledge of the “psychology of the mind”, as well as focusing on the importance of spiritual health. Combining both, is the bridge that forms optimum health and well-being.
We are building a network of corporate companies and businesses who would like to sponsor a space. This means that our retreat, is accessible to those who otherwise, may not be able to finance the day.
Mental health tool kit
When the effect of events in our life, are unresolved, many people feel isolated. This can be due to there being no template, in which to navigate one’s inner landscape and geography of emotions and feelings. You will go away from the day, with a mental health tool kit, to help you address the unique challenges that you face.
The purpose of holding a day retreat, for 26 guests, is so that a true brotherhood is formed, to build a long-lasting network of support. This is a safe and non-judgemental environment, to encourage the sharing of knowledge and personal development.
Retreat Leader, Melissa Day’s life work, is to bring people back home to themselves. This retreat will appeal to those who have a willingness, to lead a conscious life – being intentional with one’s actions, with maximum awareness of self and the world at large. Therefore, this retreat is perfect, for those wishing to do the “inner work” and who ultimately want to learn, grow and transform.
Giving yourself permission to let go…
Our retreats, are a space in which you’ll be lovingly held, above the hardness and muddiness of the world so you can just be. You’ll have a feeling of being breathed back to life. If you have hidden deep anguish, rage, pain and unshed tears, our dedicated team of professionals, will guide you to release these safely. It’s time to put the weapons of the warrior down and quiet the mind.

♦ Morning workshop facilitated by Business Psychologist, Jan P. de Jonge: attendees complete an online questionnaire (up to 5 days prior to the retreat) which leads to results that each individual receives, in the shape of a “Strengths Report”. This will show an overview of their top strengths and how they might overuse or underuse these. Attendees each receive a personalised, confidential online report (and handed in print on the day). This is often an aspect, that people really love and find fascinating.
♦ Afternoon workshop facilitated by Business Psychologist, Jan P. de Jonge: We also cover strengths psychology (people like this a lot!) and as part of this aspect, we include a strengths exercise on the day. This element gives people some self-insight and they typically love finding out how they are perceived, by others around them. This covers such aspects as first impressions, management of the self, stereotypes and non-verbal behaviour.
