FEEL & HEAL TO
FLOW & GROW

- SUNDAY 24th OCTOBER TO FRIDAY 29th OCTOBER 2021 -

"The roots of trauma lie in our instinctual physiologies. As a result, it is through our bodies, as well as our minds that we discover the key to its healing.
Each of us must find these roots, realising we have a choice- perhaps one of the greatest of our lives.
The healing of trauma is a natural process that can be accessed through an inner awareness of the body"
- PETER LEVINE

What is Body Truth


Body Truth is a healing retreat. It will help restore, rebalance and recentre your mind body and spirit to its natural healthy state.
Through movement and connection with each other.

Have you ever woken up in the morning overwhelmed by your thoughts and feelings?

Do you have unexplained physical symptoms?

Or a nagging feeling there is something unexplored, undigested or unresolved?


You will leave the retreat with a ‘toolkit’ full of helpful practices and the notion of how best to use them for your own wellbeing. Our hope is for you to continue exploring the ideas and techniques introduced and to develop your own daily practice that will support you in your quest to stay connected; listening to your body, mind and spirit, and learning to love and honour the messages you receive.

ABOUT BODY TRUTH

It is our mission to help guests develop an awareness of the wholeness of mind, body and spirit. In our natural, healthy state these three elements are interconnected and balanced.

Because of our evolutionary past as prey, we humans are equipped with a highly sensitive nervous system that can easily trigger our primal ‘fight, flight or freeze’ instincts. Instead of processing these intense bursts of adrenaline like our ancestors would have done; our modern lifestyle has taught us to repress our emotions – and they can become stuck in our bodies.


When undigested energy or trauma, remains in the body, it can present itself in a variety of physical and psychological conditions such as headaches, IBS, anxiety, low self-worth and unhealthy behaviours.


At the Body Truth Retreat, we help you to recognise these ‘frozen’ traumas or emotions and provide you with a toolkit of simple daily practices to help release them in a safe way. We will work to restore your connection between body, mind and spirit, and teach you how to tap into your intuition daily so you can achieve transformative change.


In a supportive and accepting group environment , this healing process can be a positive and joyful experience that will help you enhance your sense of self and boost your self-worth. You will leave the retreat with an array of new knowledge and simple techniques to incorporate into your routine, so you can continue your inner growth back at home.

The Effects of Trauma on Your Wellbeing

Trauma can be defined as anything that makes us feel unsafe, from having a near-death experience to not being validated by a parent.
When we experience trauma, we are often unable to process the ensuing emotions in a healthy way.
If such emotions are not processed to become ‘safe’, they can remain something that we subconsciously fear. This means that even when we are not being exposed to the original trauma, we are constantly living in a state of fearful anticipation. Unless these emotions are properly processed, the memories of the original trauma remain a source of distress and anxiety.

The Body Truth Retreat will suit you if you are looking to work towards lasting change within a safe, transformative group setting and prepared to remain honest, open-minded and willing throughout the process.
Could long term trauma be affecting your relationships?
Are repressed emotions holding you back from living your best life?
Could your mind be creating pain in your body?
If your answer is Yes to any of these questions, this retreat could be for you.

THE BODY TRUTH RETREAT PROGRAMME
At the beginning of the retreat, each participant will have a one-to-one session with a team member to share their reasons for joining, assess their feelings and set their intentions for the week.
At the end of the retreat, we will check back in with each guest so they can share any movement or experience of body, mind and spirit energy.

Each guest will then take away a toolkit of daily practices and techniques to apply to their routine back at home. These can be mixed and matched to suit your personal daily needs.

During the retreat, we will work daily with a variety of methods and techniques such as mindful movement, meditation, breathwork, yoga, creative workshops, group sharing and more. All sessions and activities are underpinned by the Spiritual Principles, which form an important foundation underpinning the well-known 12 Steps Recovery Programme.

Group Work
Our group will be a safe place, surrounded by nature, high up and away from the stresses and strains of our lives. We will be in a creative space where there is room to listen and respond.
From this place of external beauty, we will feel enabled to look within, finding the dark and the light, accepting all, releasing what no longer serves us. This happens mainly through gentle body movements but also from daring to share with HONESTY, OPEN-MINDEDNESS and WILLINGNESS - the HOW mentioned in the 12 Steps recovery program.
The group energy will be an important aspect of the process.

The power of the group can be very transformative as long as there are very clear boundaries and guidelines.
These boundaries will be agreed by the group at the start of the retreat.
Each session will begin with a group sharing of feelings, followed by an activity, and ending with a short debrief. It will take courage and commitment to benefit from the process


We will provide a nurturing and safe environment infused with love, humour, (self ) compassion, tolerance and honesty to create a group where individuals experiencing anxiety, pain or numbness can safely explore, uncover and discard the stuck traumatic energy that is at the root of their suffering, and fill themselves with love.
