Sacred Pause Retreat

A restorative weekend retreat for healers

Relax, Re-new, Review and leave feeling Rejuvenated

2024 Dates: 22nd-24th March & 18th-20th October

If you work (paid or voluntarily) in any kind of healing capacity, then I know that you're a natural giver.

And as a giver, I know that you're probably not that good at giving to yourself!

If you're ready to RECEIVE more, so that you are fully 'topped-up' with positive vibes and healing energy then join me for this deeply renewing and relaxing retreat.

Its time.

Time to replenish.

You can't keep pouring from an empty cup - as the saying goes!

The more you give to others, the more you need to give to yourself too. 

If you don’t, you're potentially going to find another way to get the rest that you need….. through sickness, anxiety, accidents etc - and I'm sure you don't want that!

It’s time to re-new, to re-connect with your soul & re-juvenate

I invite you to join me on the Sacred Pause Retreat.

A full weekend to pause, reflect, re-group and re-focus.

As healers, giving ourselves the gift of being fully nurtured can be hard to do. We feel that we're too busy, that everyone else's needs come first.

This is your chance to ALLOW YOURELF TO RECEIVE.


There will be: guided reflection time, ceremonies and rituals, future visioning processes AND you will receive a healing therapy such as reiki or indian head massage. 

Allow yourself to be fully catered for with nourishing home cooked meals.

Take time out (weather permitting!) to walk on the beach and re-connect with nature.

Included in the fee is my Soul Secrets for Self-Love Journal (valued at £49).

Testimonial from a very similar retreat

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

You’ll leave the weekend feeling refreshed, re-newed and re-energised. Excited about what the rest of 2024 and beyond holds for you, and fully connected to your inner, intuitive guidance.

We'll get started at 7pm on the Friday (with dinner beforehand at 6pm and arrival from 4pm) and from then until approx. 2pm on Sunday you will be fully supported and guided with everything taken care of for you - no cooking, no cleaning, nothing to do except focus on yourself and your dreams.


In addition to the retreat itself, you will also receive a Soul Secrets Journal (value £49) - you can see these at:

Hi, I'm Dawn Petherick,

I support 'women on the edge' (and some men too!).

You'll know if you're a 'woman on the edge' because you'll likely be feeling stuck in life, or a bit lost. Not sure where you're heading but at the same time feeling an inner longing to change and for something more. 

This was me twenty years ago and I've spent the time since then raising my self awareness, getting to know ME and what I value, connecting to my divine, higher self and my spiritual guides. I've invested £000's in my own personal and spiritual development and have been supporting women to do the same for the last 10 years. 

It's an ongoing journey as we continually grow and develop and I still pinch myself that this now my full time 'work' - not that it feels like work! 

I support you through retreats, my Soulfull Living Sanctuary monthly membership group, 1:1 therapeutic sessions and workshops/trainings.

I look forward to meeting you on retreat soon!
