With her unique Healing Tents as an exquisite backdrop, Sophie will offer you deep sanctuary in the healing energies, sacred wisdom and ancient initiations of the goddess.

Sophie's retreats are intimate events and places are limited. 

"It goes beyond any imagination what huge deep work you have done: this unique, sacred and very safe space you have created. Starting many weeks, months, even years before the retreat, and will continue to hold us long after."

The Retreat at Garth Barns, Wales

Each day, you will take part in a morning and afternoon session led by Sophie, held in the luxurious yoga studio, with stunning views over the Welsh hills. 

There will be plenty of time during the week, to relax and integrate the work done in sessions. 

Early morning meditations & evening social times are optional. 

You will eat your nourishing home-cooked meals with the group, in the cosy farmhouse kitchen.

The Retreat Experience

Many participants of Sophie's Retreats describe them as life-changing experiences. 

It is not essential to have previous experience of retreats or workshops to be a part of this week. What is vital is a willingness to open up to an encounter with your Soul that may stretch you. 

These events are designed to take you into new levels of intimacy with your Self and others. Many retreat members find that they create very deep bonds, and heal fears around openness, trust and connection. 

The Retreat is for both men and women.

"If you are a man on the spiritual path wanting to evolve into the next level of your purpose and beyond, I thoroughly recommend attending one of Sophie's retreats. 

Follow your instinct and take the step into this unknown, beautiful will awaken your heart, your soul and your senses!"

Day-to-Day Routine

The deeply intuitive nature of Sophie's work means that each day is different. 

This allows Sophie to be a channel for a pure flow of spiritual gifts which are tailored to each participant, as well as deeply supporting the group as a whole. 

Within a clearly-defined daily routine, you will receive a varied programme of spiritual and healing content.

The sessions comprise techniques such as guided meditations, supported & therapeutic sharing, divine energy attunement from Sophie's guides and more.
