Just back from "Autumn Nurture Retreat"
Came to Sharpham with concrete boots and left with air cushioned soles.
The glorious landscape can speak for itself but all of the staff / teachers gave so much care, knowledge and passion.
Within 5 days my soul ignited, my mind expanded and I felt true emotion and nurturing.
How they do it so naturally is magical and my heart now has a large and special place forever Sharpham. x
Having spent 3 nights on a woodland retreat in September at Sharpham I would highly recommend to anyone wanting to get away from it all and spend some time in nature. Everything was amazing. Ollie and Israh guided us all the way and so caring. Food was exceptional. Loved everything about Sharpham and I will definitely be returning next year. Thank you.
I have just returned from a 5 night Woodland retreat at Sharpham - I though I was going for a bit of nice camping, meditation and relax time - I got all of that but SO much more. It was the most immersive and amazing 5 days and I have returned home feeling so connected with nature and fellow humans and alive and nourished. It was so so nurturing and has really helped me deal with some suppressed inner emotions. Thank you so much Sharpham for getting these retreats up and running again during 2020.
The full integration of the trust's vision in every area, of the experience that you will participate in, is tangible.
Wholistic! Overused, but actually appropriate here.
Kind, Compassionate, Tolerant & Nurturing.
Inspiring hope in the future of the human race.
Set in hundreds of acres of the most wonderful land. Managed with a lightness of touch & an eye for the symbiosis of birth, life, decay & death. Truly a natural work of art & a tonic for the soul.
Sell the family silver & go. You won't regret it!
I recently attended a Mindfulness for Beginners retreat and highly recommend it if you are interested in exploring meditation and mindfulness. The teachers (Ramiro and Patti) were very welcoming and kind, as were the rest of the staff, and the food is brilliant and very generous! I enjoyed the mixture of meditation and teaching sessions with personal time for reflection, rest or exploring. Sharpham have also put a lot of effort into running the retreats in line with Covid-19. If you arrive by train to Totnes I'd also recommend walking from the station if you have a backpack - it takes about an hour, through stunning scenery, and marked a lovely beginning and end to the retreat.
