Come and join us for a wonderful New Years experience - If you fancy something different from the usual crowds and tipsy revellers then why not join us ?
This course is open to all, all you need is a curious mind, looking to explore new things.
We will be recognising the effect of Dusk and Dawn to help bring the future into light using visualising and meditation techniques with Hedge Shaman extraordinaire Sarah Fox.
If you wish to find out more about Sarah please see her YouTube https://youtu.be/p55QEr2ajZQ?si=3VNeTAGMRVG9Hrqo
This retreat includes a powerful fire pit ceremony celebrating the last day of Yule, giving you practical meditation tools for reviewing the past to let go of what you don`t need anymore and focus on bringing new energy in for 2024.
Using Shamanic practices, along with various techniques such as art and meditation, we`ll delve into our past, examining what we aim to leave behind in 2023. Harnessing the elemental forces of fire and nature, we`ll facilitate the release of these aspects. Subsequently, we`ll focus on envisioning what we desire to invite into our lives in 2024 and beyond – embracing new light and charting new directions.
Endings & New Beginnings: Yule is the twelve days from the equinox where the sun appears to stand still. The 12 days seem to be the same length with long nights and short days. On 30th and 31st we will work on letting go of our darkness. The evening of the 31st will be a celebration of the transition from the old to the new light. The first day which is noticeably longer – the dawning of the new light - is 1st January. On 1st and 2nd we will plan for the future and take steps to bring new light into our lives.
Also included a Despachio , which is a big ceremony where a bundle of offerings are burned with the accompaniment of payers and drumming performed by all on the course ( drums will be provided).
We are also exploring Veganism. You don`t need to be vegan, or go away fully converted. We will cook and serve delicious home cooked vegan dishes. Included will be chats on nutrition, tips and a fun cooking session. We will also give you some delicious recipes to takeaway.
Fancy a longer stay? Join the `Escape to Tranquillity` Retreat running 27-30th
for additional 1 or 2 nights prior to NYE retreat, or consider BnB afterwards.
If you wish to stay longer, or start your stay earlier, please contact us about availability.

We would not hesitate to return... everyone has fallen in love with this place - it is truly a healing environment
Returning to Claridge House after the pandemic pause, everything inside has changed.
And yet ... paradoxically, nothing has changed.

Just a little note of thanks for a wonderful time this past week on a personal retreat. Your kindness helped me to ease back into `real life` after the past two years of isolation. I hope to see you all again soon. JC Mar 2022
