A really beautiful and special setting for a retreat. The outdoor space envelops you in nature and indoors is spotless, comfortable and well considered. The food was delicious and the retreat was thoughtfully delivered. I would highly recommend.
This was a wonderful retreat, I had a amazing experience here. Sharpham is a beautiful house in a stunning location. The retreat leader was kind and gentle in her approach and this supported me immensely in my first introduction to mindfulness. The food was divine!!! I would definitely recommend this retreat for anyone embarking on their first journey into mindful meditation.
I attended the 5 night ‘Find Your Peace’ retreat led by Ethan Pollock and Nina Jankelson, who were both inspiring, holding, kind, and also brought a sense of light and humour! As well as having some rest, one of my aims was to bring a fresh perspective to my meditation practice, and in both senses, I got what I needed from the five days. Staying in Sharpham house was a nourishing and luxurious experience, especially having a dip in the small open air swimming pool every day! Ethan offered great teaching and in particular helped to bring a sense of acceptance and kindness into my meditation practice. I was also very grateful to Nina for encouraging a more direct experience of nature and belonging to the earth with the option of outdoor sitting meditation, and a wonderful practice laying on the ground under a beautiful tree which is estimated to be 1000 years old! Food and accommodation were superb and only added to a sense of being well and cared for.
Attended evening session in September 2021 learning about bats and the night sky.
Nicely presented by Lisa of the Sharpham team together with Dartmoor Skies.
Fascinating and left us wanting to learn more. Thank you.

Thoroughly recommend the 3 day Mindfulness & Meditation course to ignite or develop an existing interest. The setting is beautiful, food excellent, and the leaders friendly and helpful. I really appreciated my time at Sharpham, and think anyone with an open mind would benefit from what it has to offer.
