I went on the Hebden Retreat last September. I remember being reluctant to give up the time or the money and almost didn’t go. All I can say is that my life has been changed, and I know it is the start of so many adventures.
The weekend itself was so much fun and I met a real diverse group of amazing but down-to-earth, warm-hearted women whom I know will be friends for life. It lifted the lid on some limiting beliefs and fears that I can now see have possibly held me back in what I really want out of life. Once your eyes are opened, the following months will keep getting better and better, especially with the support of the other group members. It unleashes you… the world is full of new possibilities and I feel truly energised.
Beth and Angela are so insightful, talented and most importantly, they really care about making a difference to the lives of us, the women on the retreat, not just in the short-term but for a long time after. There’s no intimidation, in fact quite the opposite. I would never have felt I could be so honest and show my vulnerable side (scary!) if the group wasn’t so supportive.
So when I think about nearly missing this extraordinary weekend I am just so grateful that I took that step. I’ve booked on the next stage retreat – Hebden 2 – and cannot wait! Investing in yourself may seem indulgent, if you have other priorities, but I can honestly say it will benefit not just you, but everyone around you. Give yourself this gift, you deserve it!
