Being In Heart: Urban Retreat

I feel like a huge shift has happened for me. An unearthing of something I cannot quite put into words and an energetic power feeling that is very very new to me. It was an honour to be in the presence of so much transformation. Such a special sacred weekend (Sarah, Retreat Participant)

In our busy full lives, it is essential to take time to take stock.  To reconnect to that stillness that lies within each and every one of us and reconnect to our authentic heart within. Over this two day retreat we will dive deeply into our heart space and begin to make ‘whole’ anything that is unwhole there.  Softening any hard edges and holding around our heart caused from past pain, protection and resistence, so that our beautiful alive fire energy and passion can begin to flow abundantly through our lives. Feeding our dreams, bringing forth magic and childhood wonder once more.

Date: Saturday 24th and Sunday 25th March 2018
Time: 9am-5.30pm (Both Days)
Venue: 42 Acres
Address: 66 Leonard Street, London, EC2A 4LW
Cost: Email Me for Full Details

My intention for you over these two days is to begin to break free of the restrictions from the story that has been living your life. To drop deeply into your sacred heart space and reconnect to the alive, magic and joy that has always been waiting there to be set free. My intention is for you to begin to let go of what has been blocking your heart and to feel safe enough to soften, release and heal. My intention for you is to leave on Sunday feeling lighter, freer and more deeply connected to the magic that is around you, to your visions, dreams and to love.

Through body, heart, mind and soul this retreat will be a fully immersive healing experience to nourish and feed, restore and heal on every possible level.

Through yoga, dance, meditation, macrobiotic food, transformational circles, ceremony, vision work and group heart connection, we will break free of anything and everything that is holding us back and stand together in power, love and freedom.

I do genuinely feel this retreat has transformed me. I feel a sense of release that I have never felt before. It just feels like something has shifted and I am a new improved, more important version of myself. I can’t thank you enough Nicky. (Anna, Retreat Participant)
In the craziness of life this was just the tonic to slow down and bring back perspective to my life. Not only do you mentally feel lighter, your body feels like it has had years taken off of it. The face glows for all the realease work that has taken place. It’s prescriptive and vital to our well being. It’s definately going to be part of my life moving forward. (Claudia, Retreat Participant)

This was a very, magical, healing weekend. Nicky has a real gift in creating a loving, safe and nourishing environment so that transformative work can take place. With her guidance I was able to gain many insights into limiting beliefs and behaviours, develop a greater awareness of self and begin to truly listen to my heart. It felt like a true awakening! I finished the weekend feeling lighter and full of love and joy. Thank you Nicky from the bottom of my heart. (Claire, Retreat Participant)
