Switch off, breathe deeply and ‘just be’! - Sound healing, yoga and meditation retreat.
Friday 11th Sunday -13th September 2020
I’d love to invite you to join me and a wonderful small community of like-minded folk this September in the gorgeous Devonshire Hills… to ‘just be’!
There’s something truly magical about September! The golden light, fresher mornings and a sense of calm as the high energies of the summer months start to slow down and soften in preparation for the cooler stillness of Autumn. It’s a wonderful time to be immersed in natures vibrations… to connect with the land, to reflect and ‘just be’!
A luxuriously rustic, restful and nourishing few days with candle-lit sound journeys, nature meditation, mantra, restorative yoga and sound healing immersions (we will be joined by ‘Dominique Preston Yoga’ Saturday and Sunday morning), Yoga nidra, woodland and river walks, campfires, journaling, fresh water swimming and lots more soulful goodness and magic for folk to embrace and enjoy as they please.
These beautiful few days will be offering you a home from home kind of feeling, a time to connect with nature, reconnect with yourselves and enjoy making new connections with other like-minded souls. The weekend will be relaxed and informal with plenty of time for yourself if you choose. You’ll be most welcome to get involved by stoking the fire or helping to cook up a few eggs for breakfast if you wish, but you are equally as welcome to swing in a hammock and get stuck into your book for the entire weekend if this is your happy place!
This will be your time. An opportunity to reconnect with own amazing self… to switch off, breathe deeply and simply ‘just be!’
Hungerhill Retreat is our home for the weekend. It’s set in a glorious meadow overlooking the stunning Devonshire countryside and located just a few minutes walk from beautiful woodland, the swimming holes of the Otter River and the RSPB nature reserve of Aylesbeare Common.
You’ll be staying in a cosy 4 bed yurt, beautifully decorated with ethnic furnishings from all over the world and a log burner to keep you toasty if the nights are getting cool. The beds are super comfy and hot showers are just a few steps away across the meadow. Maximum 2-3 people per yurt.
We have a beautiful bright and airy yoga studio for our morning sessions, but will be hunkering down for cosy candlelit evening sound journeys to the crackle of the log burner in a gorgeous traditional yurt.
Meals will be rustic, relaxed, nourishing and hearty ‘feel good’ vegetarian affairs. We will endeavour to accommodate dietary requirements, but you’ll also be most welcome to bring your own snacks or use the facilities should you wish to cook up your own delights.
About Kate - ‘The Healing Sounds’
Kate's journey with the ancient practice of sound healing began in 2012 after her own first-hand experience whilst recovering from a ‘lifetime’ diagnosis of ME. At this time, she experienced the powerful benefits of sound and vibration and became passionate to learn more, dive deeper and share the healing magic of sound and vibration with others. Kate qualified as a sound healing practitioner with the Suara Sound Academy in 2015 and has since furthered her training with Sheila Whittaker (Gong training) and the Colour of Sound Institute.
Kate offers weekly sound journeys and private sessions around North Cornwall and enjoys both collaborating and facilitating her own unique sound healing based workshops and retreats in the UK and Europe on a regular basis. As a qualified hypnotherapist, NLP, and Rahanni energy healing practitioner, she loves to regularly weave these practices into her meditations and sound journeys.
With a strong affinity for the natural world, Kate spends the summer months living closely with the elements in her campervan, choosing the remote cliff tops, beaches, caves and ancient woodland of the North Cornwall coast to offer sound journeys and private healing sessions.
The transformational and healing vibrations of the crystal and Himalayan singing bowls, sun gong, rattles, rain-stick, tuning forks, chimes and drums will be intuitively woven into each session. You’ll find yourself dropping into a deep and peaceful meditative journey as the vibrations wash over you, entraining with your own unique frequencies to improve inner balance and harmony and enable healing to naturally start taking place from within.
Sound healing is beneficial for many conditions, but is particularly effective should you be experiencing any element of stress, depression or anxiety in your life. These wonderful frequencies encourage the ‘feel good’ emotions and feelings to return, they help to stoke that inner fire and flood your being with inspiration, motivation, positivity, joy, love etc… all the good stuff!
Restorative Yoga & Sound Healing Immersion
These two morning classes offer you a divine combination of two fabulous healing practices. Not only will the healing frequencies of the instruments gently encourage your body to relax and sink just that little bit deeper into your practice, they will also be offering you a powerful, beautiful and unique healing experience. These sessions are suitable for all abilities.

I recognise that now perhaps feels like a difficult or strange time to commit to anything, or to think about spending money. However, how lovely would it be to have something lovely to look forward to?
