Calm for the journey

The journey of life takes us in to, and out of, so many different experiences. Some anticipated and expected. Others abrupt and stormy. Some exhilarate, inspire. Others challenge and drain us. Some require forward planning. Others cause unanticipated rapid adaption. Whatever comes our way, we can make it through by learning how to adjust and trim our sails for the voyage ahead.

Time out

We often think time is in shorter supply today than ever before. We have, however, 24 hours in every day (as, I think,  has always been the case!). It's how we choose to spend our time and energy that is the issue. Do we value time enough to regularly spend some of it deeply considering how we habitually apply our selves and energy within such a precious resource as time? When we take time out to: recover; be thankful; plan for change; reflect and refresh, energy is redirected towards smoother transitions in changing horizons.


Sanctum Retreats offers supported reflective space and warm hospitality, in a beautifully spacious rural setting. Quiet days providing the opportunity for you to step back and take time for yourself, to maintain inner well-being and balance perspective.

Whether, individual, couple, or small group, we offer refreshing one-day retreats, thoughtfully  designed with simplicity, silence, and quiet guided reflection, exclusively for you.

These can be booked as a regular quiet day, or a 'now and then ' event, to recharge and inspire physical, spiritual, and creative batteries.
