‘Find your sacred Space’
We run residential retreats throughout the year in Caithness on the award winning tourist route, the North Coast 500. Our residential retreats are based at the gorgeous Forse of Nature. Each retreat is themed and all include life coaching, yoga, mindfulness, nature walks, mindful crafts, delicious vegetarian food and lots of tea and cake. Special dietary requirements catered for by request.
Rooms are twins with a limited number of singles. A larger room for four people is available by request.
During the retreats you will also have full use of the grounds, three private lounges and a yoga / meditation room.
Although our retreats are in ‘the land beyond the Highlands’, it is very accessible either by driving the stunning NC500, flying into Inverness or Wick and by bus or train. Wick is only a 20 min taxi ride away and the bus will drop you at the end of the drive where someone will collect you.
Spaces are very limited and early booking is essential.
Deposits are not refundable and full cost of retreat must be paid in full at least six weeks prior. After that date, if you are unable to attend, you are very welcome to transfer your space to someone else or if we are able to fill the space, we will offer a refund minus a £50 administration fee. Unfortunately due to the time and costs involved in spend organising the retreats, we have had no choice but to introduce this policy. Thank you so much for your understanding.
With Love – Donna x
30th November 10am – 7.30pm (Residential Optional)
Would you like a little calm before the storm of the Holiday season?
You’ll arrive for 10am Saturday morning and will spend the day enjoying restorative yoga, woodland walks, Christmas crafting, yoga nidra and cuddles with Frank the Christmas Pug. There will be free time to chill in front of the log fires with hot chocolate and cake and you can enjoy a delicious lunch and dinner before home time.
Our gorgeous venue, Forse of Nature, has offered a very generous discount on rooms for the evening before and after the retreat. Please contact them directly to arrange and explain you are attending the Christmas Retreat.

Winter Fire Retreat
10th – 12th January 2020 (2 nights)
Join us to say Goodbye to 2019 and welcome 2020 with fire ceremonies, vision boards and timeline walking.
You’ll arrive late Friday afternoon in time to settle in and get to know everyone. We have a relaxed first evening of delicious food, followed by stories round the fire, yoga nidra and an evening of star gazing and northern lights spotting.
Saturday is all about releasing the old and welcoming in the new. As well as our usual retreat goodies of yoga, meditation, nature walks and lots of cake, we’ll spend some time reviewing your previous year and preparing for the year ahead. As well as group coaching sessions, there will be an opportunity for one to one sessions with Donna. We’ll finish the day with a fire ceremony, smores and stories around the firepit.
Sunday morning is free to journal and prepare for your year ahead, to relax by the fire, explore the nearby Pictish ruins or go seaglass hunting. We’ll make sure you are well fed before we say Goodbye after lunch.
Rooms are shared with a limited number of twins and singles.
Our Day Retreat is a day of bliss – a full day of meditation (seated, eating, working), yoga, nature walks, mindfulness and yoga nidra. The whole day takes place in silence so no need to introduce yourself, share your story or feel any obligation to entertain your fellow attendees.
Attendees should bring something for working meditation – drawing, writing, knitting etc or are free to work in the garden.
Retreats are limited to eight attendees and run from 10am-4pm.
Our day retreats are run in the beautiful, peaceful surroundings of Newton Croft in Caithness.
