Is this retreat for you?

The retreat

Awaken your feminine energy and embrace your wild woman within as we connect deeply with nature, slow down, and create space for inner reflection. When we create space to connect with nature it invites stillness, oneness, and intuition into our lives. It allows us to hear our inner truth and listen to our callings. By aligning with the rhythms of the Earth, Mother Nature, the moon, and the sun, we discover our natural way of being. This is the Feminine Way, who we are at our deepest core.

Join us in experiencing the magic of this world-renowned retreat destination, graced by countless celebrities and now open for us to discover its transformative offerings!

Here, we’ll embark on a journey of self-discovery and empowerment, tapping into our inner wisdom and embracing our divine feminine energy. We will learn how to harmonise with our cyclical nature in both our personal and professional lives.

This is the key to unlocking our creative power as we come back home to ourselves and deepen our connection to Self, ‘The Feminine Way’.

Imagine an evening filled with the warmth of a cacao ceremony at the fire temple, where we’ll engage in a powerful ritual to release what no longer serves us. As the night deepens, we’ll continue in ceremony with a Goddess Celebration, igniting our inner power and embracing our divine feminine essence. It is time to activate your Queen energy!

But that’s not all! Indulge in the luxurious spa, immerse yourself in the healing embrace of forest bathing, and join us for a variety of holistic wellness classes, like breathwork, yoga, somatic movement, wild swimming, all surrounded by the breathtaking beauty of nature.

This is your opportunity to connect deeper, not just with your Self but with your fellow sisters too and create space for radical growth and expansion in every area of your life!

During the retreat, you will be staying on a stunning 3,000-acre estate, home to the magnificent 16th century Broughton Hall. Accommodations include a range of beautifully restored cottages and lodges, as well as charming holiday homes, each lovingly maintained to offer a blend of comfort and elegance. The estate provides a variety of facilities designed to help you connect with nature, from stargazing under the vast night sky to exploring the ancient, storied land.

the food

A big part of our retreats is the food, and we put a lot of love and care into planning it. Utopia at Avalon will be serving a fully vegetarian menu that’s sure to be incredibly delicious. If you’ve been on my retreats before, you know how much I value great food.  There will also be a coffee, juice and fresh fruit bar.

We can of course cater to any dietary requirements, please just let us know when booking!

The dance and embodiment practices are a favourite amongst the ladies as they really help you to feel liberated, full of joy, energised and at home in your own beautiful body. You may have thoughts flooding through your mind right now, like, ‘I can’t dance or I’m not dancing’ but trust me when I say this, you will LOVE the movement practices. They are so empowering and you will have moments where smiles and laughter will be beaming out of you! There is no right or wrong way to move, it’s all about allowing your body to move exactly how she wants to move, following the impulses of your unique body. I will guide you through the process as you rise in your own self confidence and feel liberated to unleash all the crazy and fun moves. Your future self is thanking you already! Dancing is also a great way to release stagnant energy, shift your energy and vibe on a whole new level that leaves you feeling so incredible from the inside out.

We will be practicing yoga (perfect for beginner’s too) which is a form of movement meditation. As you focus on your movement and breath you allow your thoughts to grow still as you bring unity to your body, mind and spirit. You will feel wonderfully energised, warmed-up and at peace in your body after the practice.

Meditating in the morning is the best time to alchemise your intentions in the rest of your day and future life. It will help you to feel more at peace, relaxed and present in this moment. I will teach you simple techniques to really quiet your mind, focus on your breath so you can hear the still small voice of your intuition and higher self. Meditation has transformed my life and I can’t wait for it to do the same in yours. When you meditate it helps you to connect to the vibration of the universe which is the very energy you need to be to manifest your true hearts desires. Get ready for amazing visions, mindset shifts and to welcome in ALL the things your heart desires. It’s already happening, I can feel it, you just need to claim it as your reality.

Sister Circles; when women come together in true sisterhood we feel empowered, heard, seen and accepted for all of who we are. When one sister rises in her truth, it’s like a ripple effect that gives permission for another sister along side her to rise in her truth. When women come together in this way radical self-acceptance happens, forgiveness, healing and we shift from being the victim of our story to the victor. We practice non-judgement and see each others journeys as beautifully unique. Sister Circles are so powerful, so loving and nurturing and you will create lasting friendships as you surround yourself with like-minded women. Let the Goddess within you rise up, take her place and radiate her unapologetic Self Love. It’s time to put your crown on Queen and if it slips we will fix it. This is what we will be embracing, women empowering women. Are you ready to meet your new soul sisters?

Grounding practices like Earthing; walking in nature whether it’s in the gardens, mountains, or waters near-by, this will help you to feel so connected to the earth’s healing energy. There are so many benefits to walking barefoot in nature and we’ll be embracing a lot of this during our weekend together.

 These workshops are hugely transformational as I help you discover what’s holding you back from fully accepting and loving yourself exactly how you are, right now, in this moment. I will guide you on a process that will help you fully let go of the things that are holding you back, heal past hurts and pains so you can create new positive and lasting change in your life. These are the parts of the retreats where you begin to awaken to the patterns that have been repeating and playing out in your life time and time again but enough is enough, no more, it’s time to connect with your truth again, know your worth and know that you are good enough to do all the things your heart desires. I will be using a range of practices I am fully trained and qualified in to help you through these sessions like EFT (Emotional Freedom Technique / The Tapping Method), Belief Coding, Inner child healing and Somatic Therapy. Through doing this work you will leave feeling so much lighter and so much more in tune with your true Self. You are so worthy, always have been and always will be. You absolutely deserve to be free from any ‘thing, thought or feeling’ holding you back. Are you ready to live the life of your dreams?

Meet your HOST

Hey, I'm Sally

As a passionate advocate for women’s empowerment, I am dedicated to guiding women on their journey of self-discovery and awakening through embodiment practices. My mission is to help women embody the truest essence of who they are and ignite their inner power from within.

With a diverse range of training in various modalities, I bring a rich toolkit to my retreats and one-on-one sessions with women. From EFT Tapping to Yoga, Somatic Movement & Dance, Coaching and facilitating Women’s Circles, each practice serves as a gateway for women to reconnect with their authenticity and step into their power.

Based in North West Lancashire, UK, I am a proud Mumpreneur driven by the desire to support women in tapping into their authentic truth. Together, we work to cultivate lives aligned with their essence, empowering them to shine their light and make the impact they are destined for.

My own journey of transformation began with a soul-enriching mission to overcome a destructive eating disorder rooted in anxiety, comparison, and self-hate.

“I’ve stood on the edge, engulfed by the darkest corners of my being, feeling trapped, broken, and desperate. Yet, amidst the pain and hopelessness, a whisper urged me not to give up.

To embark on this journey of transformation, I had to confront my truth – no more hiding behind facades of false okayness. Recognising the need for support, I invested in coaching, courses, and therapies that taught me the art of self-love. It was during a transformative experience in America through somatic practice that I truly saw myself  – beautiful inside and out, deserving of love. I embraced this truth and now, I’m here to help you claim yours.”

Through my teachings, I empower others to rise in self-love, break free from destructive patterns, and live authentically. Together, we embark on a journey towards realising dreams, actioning them into our reality, while embracing unapologetic self-love along the way!

“The retreat was pure magic. So so so so so so so incredible. An insane experience where you meet like-minded women looking to grow spiritually, heal their wounds and connect to their highest self. Through dance, yoga, meditation and wellness practises it allowed you to connect to your soul, helped to ground you and allowed you to connect with the inner wisdom and magic that is within each of us, to tap into the answers that are already there. Sally creates a magical place where she is able to hold the space to allow you to do that. ”
