Bespoke; advanced level

I want you to get the most out of this week and for all of you to have a deeply fulfilling learning and growing experience.
In order to facilitate this, this is an application only retreat. We’ll have an exploratory talk first – so I can assess where you are – professionally, personally, spiritually – and what your needs and expectations are.
I will tailor the content of the retreat to individual and group needs.
This retreat is not for you if you are just starting out on the path of discovering personal development, nor is it a therapy group.
