Feeling the need to be inspired in the kitchen?
Leading busy lives and juggling commitments can often mean that rustling up a healthy meal is the last thing on your mind. The Mindful Cook food and well-being retreat is based in the kitchen, but is not a traditional cookery course. You will learn new skills, watch some demonstrations, take part in simple food preparation, and leave feeling inspired to create healthy dishes at home. You will leave with a folder stuffed full of recipes and inspiration. But that’s not all! You will get some practical advice and guidance on how to create a healthy lifestyle without sacrificing the enjoyment of great food and leave with an understanding of how to truly look after yourself from the inside out
This food and well-being weekend features some creative foodie activities, the opportunity to take part in morning yoga, a guided meditation session and free time to do whatever you want. It will get you thinking about your own experiences with food and how food features in your life. But don’t worry! We won’t be stroking a pear for hours on end, this retreat is designed to provide you with realistic, usable techniques that you can use every day.
You will get to take time out in a beautiful place, get inspired, leave the retreat with the recipes and know-how to recreate some healthy meals at home, and reset, raring to go!

Creative Retreat with LUCINDA DRAYTON (BACP accred)
May 3rd-6th 2019
I have run a Theatre company that took values education to schools, I’ve taken creative work into prisons, I’ve run groups worldwide and regularly use the creative medium in my one to one private practice. I love working with creativity. It saved me and has saved many others.
CREATIVITY is the doorway to the unconscious and to a deeper sense of connection.
We live in a rational left brained world and most of us have a highly developed conceptual side. However this over- development can dull our intuition, our ability to tune into the feelings of those around us but more importantly perhaps, to really understand ourselves deeply.
Creativity invites us to let go of the need to understand everything, only so much can be understood using logic and reason. We will be exploring the other world. The world of silence, the world of pictures, archetypes and magic
Through movement, art, poetry, drama voice-work and music you will be given the chance to explore the self, to give voice to that which has been kept quiet. You will be given the chance to take risks in a safe supportive environment and in doing so reclaim some of your power.
This is your weekend, nobody is expected to do anything, there is no pressure or force, just an invitation to explore, to play, to have fun and to let go.
Lucinda is a professional musician and a trained counsellor. She uses the model created by REACH (www.thereachapproach.co.uk)and this holistic approach underpins her therapeutic work.
What deepens the work is her ability to create a safe space and she of course brings to the table and incredible musicality so love music will figure in the weekend.
Come alone, we will take care of you, come open, you will be filled with interesting ideas, come as you are, you will be so accepted.
‘Lets laugh, Letsdance. Letsplay, lets learn
see you there, love Lucinda’
