Retreats

Rest, Recharge & Reset ready for Summer!

Join us for a unique and exclusive retreat experience in the Derbyshire Peak District.

Relax in the beautiful natural surroundings of a working farm balancing an introduction to gut health and practical cookery sessions with mindful movement, breathwork, river side walks and fireside rituals.

You’ll also have time to reflect on 2024, exploring your goals and intentions for the rest of the year and turning these creatively into a beautiful vision board. We keep our retreats small to create a special and safe experience. 

 

“I had never attended a retreat weekend however from the moment I crossed the threshold, any apprehension melted with the warm and wonderful welcome received. ”

The retreat team

Meet your guides

Cara Wheatley-McGrain
Gut Health Expert and Somatic Coach

I founded The Mindful Gut to share my passion for gut health. As a Hay House author of ‘Calm Your Gut’ and an accredited coach my work integrates self-compassion in holistic healing. My approach draws on my lived experience of living with anxiety and a chronic gut condition towards well-being and inner transformation. Working with Julie is the perfect synergy of holistic and practical skills for your life and work!

Julie Mather
Business Growth Coach

As a coach I work with businesses, but my work focuses on the whole person supporting people to be truly effective and enabling them to achieve their goals and intentions at work and personally. The absolute joy of my collaboration with Cara is that we take this a step further and include gut health and self-care, which are so important to how we all feel and our energy levels. Together we create a compelling partnership that balances creative practices for both and welcome all individuals.
