    Vegan lunch, teas and coffees included.

    Gaunts House, Scania, Heike and Gaby would like to invite you to a day of deeper connection to nature and self. Drawing on the therapeutic power of mindfulness, ecotherapy, meditation and Sound.

    The day will begin by harnessing the therapeutic power of the natural world by exploring the grounds of Gaunts House using nature based activities. Being in natural surroundings has a positive effect on our wellbeing. In modern day, nature and human minds have traditionally been separated… so the day begins exploring, connecting and bringing the inner child into play…

    We will move on to Forest Bathing (walking meditation in woods) this is “shinrin-Yoku” (taking the atmosphere of the forest) recent research has shown that people that forest bathe experience lower levels of the stress hormones cortisol after their walks in the forest.

    We then come back together to enjoy a Vegan Lunch (included in the price of the ticket)

    In the afternoon we Join Heike and her amazing drums and percussion instruments for a drumming circle and end the day with Scania and the Gongs

    The Gong and Drum provides an psychoacoustic gateway to heightened states of awareness and consciousness. It is an ideal tool for stress reduction, stimulation of the glandular system, and to break up emotional blockages. When skilfully played, gongs stimulate and resonate all cells in the human body simultaneously and recalibrate the parasympathetic nervous system.

    The Gongs and Drums will create a sacred space, they may allow us to attune our energies and link with our higher selves. During this Gong and Drum afternoon we can be reminded of the fact that in spite of outward appearances, we are really beings of light occupying physical bodies. The gong and drum sessions will allow time and space to connect with that divine-light energy in order to recharge our “spiritual batteries”

    Spaces limited. Booking essential through iamscania.com

    What is happiness and can you have a happier life – YES you can………….. Yes, happiness can be a passing feeling, but as this course explores, true, deep long-lasting happiness is much more than that.

    The Formula for Success and Happiness Retreat is a super intensive, interactive course designed to help you discover what truly makes you happy. Over the course of the weekend you will experience a number of profound ‘aha moments’, dig deeper into your psyche than ever before and ultimately, learn how to move forward in life and be the happiest and most successful version of yourself that you could ever have hoped to be.

    In recent years psychologists have done a lot of research particularly in positive psychology to investigate the kinds of intervention activities that help us not only understand what happiness is but how to influence that and to impact that for the better. So for example some discoveries find that nurturing relationships, forgiveness, gratitude, taking notice of nature, discovering meaning and purpose in our lives are a few ways that we can create more happiness. These things have been known to make a significant difference so scientists have proven we can indeed be happier.

    Everybody comes to the group with their own experience and life stories and I start the course by sharing mine. From experience I have noticed how my openness and honesty allows others to do the same. When everyone feels safe to share their own experience it always brings a great richness and texture where may people may start to see their own pitfalls and habits that could be keeping them stuck in a negative spiral.
