Solas School of Complementary Therapies Horsenden Farm, Perivale, Middlesex

Spring Wellness Retreat Sunday 28th April 2024

'Most of us walk without chains, yet we aren’t free. We’re tethered to regret and sorrow from the past. We return to the past and continue to suffer. The past is a prison. But now you have the key to unlock the door and arrive in the present moment. You breathe in, you bring your mind home to your body, you make a step, and you arrive in the here and the now. There is the sunshine, the beautiful trees, and the songs of the birds'.

– Thich Nhat Hanh.


Living in the present moment.


The busyness of our mind is an easy distraction from who we are, overthinking and meaningless thoughts, that we allow to occupy our time, prevent us from being truly present.

On this retreat day we will look at what it really means to be living in the moment. How, being more aware of our thoughts, and recognising where our attention goes, can help us become more focused and in harmony with ourself.

The smallest of changes in our thinking, can have a huge benefit to how we live, what we want to achieve, and our overall health and wellbeing.


What to expect on the day:
  • The day will begin with a mindful walk into Horsenden woods (weather permitting), some simple movement and breathing techniques, followed by a Grounding Meditation.

"Walk as if you are kissing the Earth with your feet".  Thich Nhat Hanh

“ I have allowed myself to lead this little life, when inside me there was so much more. And it's all gone unused. And now it never will be. Why do we get all this life if we don't ever use it?"  Shirley Valentine


Opening with a caring Meditation to ease you into the day, in preparation for a day of self-reflection and awareness.

This Retreat Day will focus on the day-to-day impacts of Energy and Thought.

We will discuss the importance of keeping your energy field clear, how powerful your thoughts are and ways to stay focused and in the moment.

We will introduce Crystals, explore their energetic vibrations and discuss the benefits of how crystals can play a part in self-care.

The day will end with a soothing Sound Bath, a space to experience the healing vibrations of Tibetan Bowls, Quartz Singing Bowls, Koshi Chimes and Gongs.
