Introducing an insightfully rich program of spirituality, creativity, embodied practices and inner wisdom

to help you explore and be guided by your own unique layers of spirit, wonder and presence.

Our aim is to empower you to fully embrace the essence of who you truly are.

To live in harmony with yourself, others and our planet.



“ Do not feel lonely, the entire universe is inside you”



The program spans over ten months in which you will be compassionately supported, nurtured and nourished

on your path of deep connection with self and others.

Become part of the truly beautiful Acorn Community of Practitioners



From the moment I booked onto the Acorn Journey of Wisdom course I have felt welcomed, accepted and held. Each session has been a balance of learning alongside meditation/other practices and a sense of feeling safe and nurtured. So far it has given me the opportunity to build on the practices I had started doing, and enabled me to begin to firmly embed them in my life. Working on a separate chakra each time has been particularly beneficial. I also have to mention the food. It has blown me away in all honesty!” (Course member)


What this program offers you


This program is designed to give you the space and time to find peace of mind, to experience a vast array of wellness practices, to discover a better relationship with yourself and others, to embody a calmer outlook, to feel a greater sense of well-being, to embed life-long healing methods, and develop an awareness of your greater potential.  We particularly focus on your creative nature, what energizes and fulfills you and your innate ability to flourish and thrive.

You will learn to expand your awareness and focus fully on self-care, self-discovery and life purpose. You have the chance to feel greater balance, improved vitality, enhanced feelings of contentment, joy and a stronger body-mind-spirit connection.

Our Unique Approach

This immersive mind-body-spirit program includes a full retreat day once a month with further opportunities to embed specific practices, techniques and ways of being. You are encouraged and supported in attending further individual and group sessions throughout the weeks if this suits your needs. You will be regularly updated with comprehensive hand-outs, related links, references. You will be offered personally focused attention and guidance.   

Integrated Energy Wisdom

We have chosen to extensively focus on a particular energy centre (a chakra) each month, working from the earth (root) chakra to the crown aligning each one as you progress.

This simply gives a structured and a delightful way in which to mindfully access all areas which affect your wellbeing and aid in re-alignment and adjustment.  It is an all-embracing and compassionate approach which encompasses a great deal of the methods that we champion and offer at the Acorn Wellness Retreat including yoga, mindfulness and ancient wisdom.     

“Chakras are energy centres which give us a unique insight into how we are functioning in mind-body-spirit at any given time”


Retreat Days

Each retreat day includes:

An introduction to a particular chakra and associated mind-body-spirit connections through an understanding of the ancient wisdom, self-discovery questionnaires and methodologies.

Specialist knowledge from an expert in the field of one of the associated methods such as forest bathing, essential oils, herbal medicine. You will be given the tools, insights and wonderful ways in which to integrate these remedies and practices into your daily life.

A practice session in which to embed and settle into the arising wisdom of your vital energy centres.

A plant-based lunch in which to also gain insights into intuitive nutritive habits and new ways of choosing, preparing and enjoying nutritious foods to support your energy system.

Personal guidance and signposting to classes and therapies at the Acorn which enhance and support this journey.

Including time to relax, explore and connect with each other.

Follow-up notes, handouts and audios which accumulate into a comprehensive (life-time) reference manual, video and audio collection.


In a time of extreme busyness, we can find ourselves on the treadmill of life where we’re exhausted, but the scenery hasn’t changed! The Acorn Retreat has encouraged me to slow down and focus with intention on my mind, body and spirit. It has encouraged me to listen intuitively to what is needed and I’ve been educated in nourishing both my soul and my body. I’ve been absolutely delighted with the information and inspiration on offer and how kindly and compassionately it is shared with the group. It really has been powerful, purposeful and profound.
