Further Information & How to Book

Screen Shot 2018-03-20 at 10.42.51Our deep wish is to bring people together in community, to curate what it means to live and work with coherence and integrity. Recognising that this can be joyful but usually not straightforward work, we are committed to providing a supportive and nourishing environment in which people can connect with themselves and each other, and with their next steps.

Some people will choose to sign up for the full series, as a gift to themselves and their work for the year ahead. Others will choose to join retreats on an ad hoc basis. Whichever path you choose, you will be warmly welcomed into the flow and spirit of the series.

Each residential retreat is designed for up to 12 people and runs from 4.30pm on Day 1 to 4.30pm on Day 2.

In addition to your time in the wood, one-to-one support is available between retreats. Please ask for further details.

Basic accommodation is in shared sleeping lofts in Hazel Hill’s beautiful off-grid eco-buildings.  If you prefer a private room, an additional £30 applies; please specify at time of booking.

The food we eat is an important part of the retreat. All meals are vegetarian and – to the extent possible – locally sourced and organic.

Learn more about Hazel Hill Wood.


The per person cost for each retreat is £340 + VAT. This includes all food and basic, single room accommodation.

An early bird rate of £280 + VAT applies for bookings made 8 weeks or more in advance (20 & 21 May 2020 – book by 25 March, 9 & 10 Sept 2020 – book by 15 July, 24 & 25 Nov 2020 – book by 29 Sept, 9 & 10 Feb 2021 – book by 22 Dec 2020).

For those working in public sector and charitable organisations, and for anyone who is self-funding through a non VAT registered business, a 10% discount on the £340/£280 rates applies.
