About you…. YES, YOU!

Why go on a retreat?

Retreats offer you the benefit of physical, emotional and psychological withdrawal from the stresses and strains of everyday life: a chance to escape from the toxic effects of noise, information overload, unrealistic demands and the frantic busy-ness of 21st century living; to enjoy a safe haven in which to start to recover from trauma and to heal on all levels.

On retreat, life is simple. Every aspect of each day allows you to relax in a quiet environment in beautiful surroundings, often with walks and some form of meditation/quiet contemplation enabling you to go into a deeper, often ignored, part of yourself. They provide space in which to regain a sense of self, of calm, of sanity. 

A Retreat can be a wonderful experience, a booster and an accelerator. Much can be realized in a short time in shifting perception and re-establishing what really matters. 

We are each unique, with individual preferences and needs. No one Retreat can possibly suit all. And indeed, that is why at Souliology, we aim to offer several retreats a year to suit your particular interest or need. We hope you are drawn to joining us and experiencing one of the delights of a Retreat for yourself.


We wish you joy in doing so and all of the holistic benefits that can be derived. 

Benefits of a retreat

The benefits of treating yourself to a Retreat are many and varied, depending upon the type of retreat chosen. In the main, they can be:​

  • Wonderfully rewarding on many levels 
    A Retreat can be a life-changing experience providing true 'me time' to reconnect with your authentic self, to remember what brings you joy, and to achieve the clarity to start creating the means to have it;

  • Refreshing, rejuvenating, re-energising and re-empowering
    So often we are at the limit of our endurance when we take a break (and for many a holiday with 'loved ones' is far from a relaxing experience). A retreat can recharge batteries on many levels and bring new insights for positive life change; 

  • Deep relaxation and peace of mind
    A retreat can bring physical, mental and emotional benefits and also help you disconnect from all the demands and pressures at home or at work that pull you in so many directions. It is impossible to put a price on the profound benefit of being helped to connect with you inner self. A retreat can provide a pause in the constant, unremitting demands of daily life. Time to reflect, renew and restore. 

  • A shift in perception with a healthier perspective
    After a Retreat people tend to return to their busy, demanding lives with enthusiasm and clarity, with a fresh and healthier perspective – in effect, a sense of a 'new, empowered me' which changes their relationships with others, with life and with the world; 

  • Sacred space and spiritual connection
    When you experience the profound inner connection with the Divine within yourself, all of life makes much more sense, and is much more fun! 

  • Transferable skills
    When you treat yourself to a Retreat, you often find that the holistic benefits you derive creep into your every day life, aiding clearer perception and balanced perspective, helping you keep stress overload at bay. You often learn to factor in healthy relaxation without feeling guilty about taking time out for yourself.
