MIDWINTER SOUL WARMER

with Cathy Williams of Chilled Mama

 

In the middle of the darkness of winter is a time to turn in, to reflect, to gather strength. The turning of the year, the tipping from the depth of winder towards spring, growth, change, is a time to prepare, to plan, to start anew.

 

Immerse yourself in the beautiful surroundings of Tofte Manor for a day of deep relaxation and personal reflection. Of cold and warmth. Of ice and fire. Of breathing deep and walking slow.

Activities include walking the labyrinth, and a fire ceremony, in which we can release some things, and wish for others.

Open to all.

£109. Early bird £69 open till 31st October. Reduction for couples and group bookings.

PREGNANCY RETREAT DAY

with Cathy Williams of Chilled Mama

Did you know that at nine months pregnant your heart will be working as hard as someone running a marathon?!

 

You deserve a day to relax!

"I feel very relaxed now. The day was just what I needed for time for myself and baby. Lovely food and drinks provided too."

 

Are you feeling a bit overwhelmed? A bit stressed by everything that needs to be sorted? Or getting anxious about coping?

 

If it your second or third baby, maybe you are feeling a bit guilty that you haven't had much time to think about this baby?

This is just what you need. A day to have time to focus on your baby, and yourself. In stunning setting. Where you can sink into deep relaxation, and enjoy peace. Learning tools that will help you every day after, to help you to sleep, to de-stress, and to help with labour.

"I was surprised how much I got out of the labyrinth. The relaxations really worked and I felt that I recognised the tensions in my body and noticed them leaving. I had time to relax and had time with my husband to reflect on life and look to the future."

I am an antenatal teacher & doula. I will be teaching you tools that I know work. You can pick my brains on anything birth and baby related.

 

£129/£169 for a couple. Early bird prices available - check website.

CHILLED MAMA RETREAT DAY

with Cathy Williams of Chilled Mama

Mothers hold up the world. Who holds up mothers?

Every now and then you need a day off!

 

"Amazing Mama Retreat Day, led by the warm, nurturing and inspiring Cathy at the truly beautiful Tofte Manor. I left feeling energised, relaxed and inspired. Highly recommend!"

 

As mums we barely get time to think, let alone properly recharge. So busy looking after everybody, everything; juggling family, work, house, and trying to be the Chilled Mama we want to be. This is just what you need: a day to totally relax and unwind. Slow down and sink into deep relaxation. Time to think and find yourself again. Beautiful and peaceful setting; yummy food; and great company.

 

We all have our own journeys, experiences, approaches, but motherhood has some universal truths that link us together. It can be hard, and sometimes lonely, and we, our inner selves, can get lost or simply worn out. Come and recharge your soul.

"I have been struggling for a while with negative feelings towards myself, but today I really felt like I CAN and WILL love myself, as I am."

For new mums right through to grandmothers. Bring your mum, you sister, your best friend, and share this special day together. Babes in arms welcome.

Unique experiences including walking the labyrinth and closing the bones, a Central American postnatal ceremony that works however long ago you gave birth, and possibly a dip in the pool. See website for more information and reviews.

Early bird: £69. Discount for groups.  Book early, as these tend to book up months in advance.
