If Spring is a time of Renewal & Growth, then head to The Bridge to discover what’s holding you back

Spring is typically the time to clear out the clutter and cobwebs that gather in our home and our lives, but for many, clarity and optimism can only come when our mental house is in order.

The Bridge, a six day personal development experience, helps individuals feeling stuck, fearful or stressed to rid themselves of negative thoughts and habits that continue to hold them back from achieving new energy and a positive outlook. Often described as an emotional bootcamp, the retreats offer life transformation through deep healing.

Based at 42 Acres in Somerset, this idyllic location is incredibly welcoming in Springtime when it cleverly balances cosiness with space and immersion in 700 acres of nature.

The Bridge is different to other therapies through its combination of highly effective therapeutic techniques alongside ancient African ritual practices. The retreats unfold in three phases – the Past, the Present and the Future – and the programme helps remove the masks and defences built up over time to allow people to get back to who they really are. Within a group environment, participants are guided through a beautifully choreographed series of experiences, without any of the usual daily distractions, using a powerful mixture of silence, catharsis, meditation, visualisation, witnessing, ritual, expressive breath and bodywork, movement, dance, touch and the healing power of love. There is plenty of individual focus too.

Upcoming Spring retreats run on 10 – 16 April and 22 – 28 May 2018. The six night retreat costs from £2,650 (incl. VAT) for accommodation sharing in a twin room. All prices include tuition, pre and post retreat support, full board and refreshments.  

The Bridge is not a quick fix but provides a model to take into daily life. After six days, participants leave with the tools to continue their healing and become happier in themselves. As Donna stresses, “Healing to me is not only about recovering from pain, be it physical, psychological, emotional or spiritual, but also to be able to extract the wisdom and gifts from within the pain.”
