I run weekend retreats in the beautiful surroundings of Argyll in Scotland... or if you're pushed for time you can design a bespoke 1 or half day retreat.

When I was going through a major shift in my life many years ago, I had the vision of a retreat building where I could offer what I most needed back then…. space, downtime, healing, support and guidance, and now I’ve brought that into reality, in a small way.

With a sea view at the front and backing onto the woods behind the garden at the back, plus a stream running alongside, you have the perfect mix of energy in which to relax, unwind and re-focus.

For most retreats, from Autumn 2023 onwards your overnight accommodation will be just along the road from me in the community owned Saddles & Paddles self-catering flat. All meals (except breakfast) and the retreat content will still be at my home  and your accomodation still has a sea view from the lounge. Please note that the apartment is on the first floor.

I was part of the SCCE committee which purchased The Lido shop, post office and flat in Innellan and put a lot of work into the smooth running of the shop when we took it over. I love the fact that I can now continue to support it's use through booking the flat for my retreats :) 

In 2024 I am hoping to take some retreats 'on the road' in which case I will be booking a retreat house for us :) 

Join me on a scheduled group retreat or you can also arrange your own bespoke, tailor-made retreat, just get in touch to explore what you want to achieve.... why not buddy up with a friend (or your partner) and plan a retreat for you both? 


"I have just come off an amazing weekend retreat that Dawn hosted near Ashbourne. I can’t recommend Dawn highly enough. Her compassion, ability to hold space for myself and other participants to go through their stuff and come out the other side. Her understanding of what we all went though, as well as all the thoughtful preparations that went into organising and running the whole event, including fabulous high vibrational nurturing food was incredible. If you are looking to get rid of the daily struggles that stop you from living the dream without having to regurgitate it time and time again then I would definitely recommend talking to and seeing Dawn. Thank you Dawn x"

"Engaging, welcoming, warming experience held by Dawn. The whole experience from the moment I walked through the door took me on a journey I will always remember. Thank you so much Dawn for helping me to birth my first drum."
