Overcoming stress and anxiety

Imagine living without stress and tension – a life free from worry, anxiety and the many daily problems these negative states of mind create. On this course we will look at how meditation can beat stress and help you to be more relaxed, peaceful and positive in daily life.

The retreat will include:

simple guided meditations that can be reproduced at home

practical instructions for a happy life

time to relax in the woodland & enjoy a peaceful walk

opportunity to ask the teacher questions

browse our bookshop

Stunning setting for meditation and very well organised. We really enjoyed the teaching and lots of new tools learnt. I’m looking forward to the next one!


A perfect way to take time out and experience the benefits of light, relaxed and guided meditations.  Set in unique and special surroundings with opportunities to explore the tranquil woodland.


I’m not sure if it’s the sunshine pouring through the large windows, or feeling surrounded by peaceful woodland, or simply the warmth and practical advice from the experienced nun, but the fact is that I love these meditation retreats. What a treat!


The Woodland setting is always a tranquil place, but with a gentle covering of snow and bright sunshine along with the mindful teachings and meditations, it took on a ‘magical’ feel. Thoroughly recommended.
