Spa for the Soul Retreat

Weekend Retreat

2019 dates to be confirmed


Shekinah Centre, Newchurch in Pendle


This weekend offers participants the opportunity to ask themselves questions and seek honest answers.   The weekend is structured to encourage individuals to explore their life and look at how the past can sometimes impact upon current life choices; participants are then encouraged to apply this learning with the hope of moving forward in their lives.   


Aim: The aim is to reflect upon values and beliefs, explore the life choices and gain some insight into individual life scripts; the hope is that individuals begin to reawaken a passion and interest for life. Participants will be encouraged to suspend any current worries and acknowledge any fears, this then allows individuals to centre themselves and become ready to experience the weekend.  Participants will then be encouraged to reflect upon their experiences and consider how sometime the past might  still  shape their future.  This then provides an opportunity for participants to ask themselves where they are going and what they want from their life.


The participants:  we generally accept up to 8participants for each week-end, this is to ensure that all individuals have space to reflect and share in a safe environment


The Venue: Shekinah is set in peaceful grounds with eight acres of woodland and gardens offering a quiet place to retreat relax and reflect. The Centre nestles on the side of a beautiful 'hidden valley' in the foothills of Pendle in rural Lancashire.
