If so read on.

Our Residential Learning Intensives present a rare opportunity for you to develop a new perspective on your mind and body, bringing about a sense of renewal and cultivating deep internal change.

Realeasing Deeply Held Patterns of Tension

Holidays and breaks often catch busy working people by surprise. Anticipating relaxation they are often distressed to discover that deep patterns of tension that were held in check are suddenly rising to the surface!

This unbound tension, habitually held at bay by the routines of everyday life, can make holidays, sabbaticals and breaks stressful rather than relaxing.Recognising this many people opt for activity and learning holidays which effectively keep these unconscious patterns of tension at bay.

Holidays for active people

If you are the kind of person who prefers activity or learning holidays then our Residential Learning Intensives can present you with a unique opportunity to learn something new and combat those deep patterns of tension at the same time!

This will allow you to return to your routine genuinely refreshed and truly energised.

Clare's story

Clare gives up using walking stick during retreat!......


"In June this year I participated in a five day intensive retreat, and during the course of the week became aware of profound changes occurring in my fascia and muscles; I actually felt as if I had a new body! I felt confident enough to try walking without my stick, and am still managing without it now that I am back at home in London. I have been able to stop taking morphine for the first time in eight years and am not on any other regular medication for pain. I can also enjoy the very simple, but important, pleasure of being able to go for a walk with my husband and hold his hand, for the first time in twenty years. I have also noticed that I have some energy and stamina; these are things I thought I would never regain, and had resigned myself to feeling tired all the time for the rest of my life. I consider this amazing transformation to be nothing short of miraculous; yes, there have been times when I have struggled and suffered in my practice, it is not always easy and not always pain free, I have had to apply myself, but the benefits from my first class on were enough to encourage me to keep trying. I now practice for about forty minutes a day and have found enormous mental/spiritual benefits in addition to the physical ones. I would urge anyone who has suffered from a chronic illness or any kind of disability to try chi gung, you may benefit in many ways, some of them totally unexpected!"
