Autumn seemed slow coming this year with all the summer activities,
but it is truly with us now.
Time to harvest the last of the tomatoes, potatoes, courgettes,
make the most out of the still abundant blackberries.
This is also the time to think about what needs to be harvested in our lives,
what has ripened in us in the last months and needs to be harvested this season?
Have you been learning a new skill for example that needs to be brought to action?
We all have many harvests in our lives.
But if we miss a particular one, that harvest will go to waste..
just like the forgotten radishes, which nobody picked and are now too woody to eat…
Now is the time to reflect..
My personal focus over the last six months has been detoxification.
After my 60 day juice fast, which I finished in July, I have a new sensitivity and approach to how I eat. My journey of trying to eat in a way that is healing for my body, has lead me to mostly raw plant-based diet, and I am looking for ways to share my knowledge with others. We will be focussing on detoxification retreats more in the future.

Autumn is beautiful here at Eagles Rock Retreat.. our favorite time of the year!
We have many exciting events coming up this season and you can see the full schedule
For those of you who are teachers and are looking for a venue to run your own events next year, now is the time to get in touch as we are putting together schedule for 2023.
We are really looking forward to our annual Samhain Retreat. It is a 3 night – bank hol weekend, where you get a chance to wind down and go deeper.. you will of course enjoy a lot of transformational yoga, meditation mornings, the best plant based food, great company … and we will have an evening by the bonfire too!
We have Sharon Ni Chulibin (Simrit Kaur) coming to teach
Women’s Healing Retreat
for the first time on the 11th November.
Sharon is a gentle soul with so much to offer. She is a song writer, musician, singer, kundalini yoga teacher and a meditation teacher.
If you are looking for some TLC, this is the weekend for you!
After his very successful retreat in August,
are delighted to welcome
back to teach his second retreat at
Eagles Rock Retreat on November 25 – 27th.
James is an international Yoga teacher, Sanskrit scholar, singer and lover of life.
Through story telling, mantra singing, functional movement, humour and play,
James has the rare gift of making ancient yoga practices fun and alive
in our busy modern lives.
We have to also mention our popular
Christmas & New Year Retreat –
28 – 2nd January.
This is a five day immersion into Iyengar yoga, tasty healthy food,
beautiful walks, morning meditations, lots of fresh air and a great company.
Lots of time for reflecting on the year gone by the fire,
and making intentions for the New Year..
And if you can not make it to this one,
we also have the shorter –
New Year Healthy Start
weekend on the 6-8th January.
We must have been complimented on the food we offer to our guests about 100s of times!
So now you can come and dine at Eagles Rock Retreat to experience
our delicious plant-based meals.
The kind of a dining experience that we have been missing in our region for a long time!
There will be more dates added soon.
Our Day Retreats
have been selling out fast. What a wonderful way to recharge, relax,
get that after-retreat feeling again…
or check us out before committing to a longer retreat!
