Soul seekers club: The retreat

Time out to rest, to breathe, heal and reflect


Gift yourself the time and space to COCOON in the magic of the west. Connect with a tribe of like minded souls


Yourself in ancient nature based practices, meditation guidance and inner soul reflection.


Your past, your mind, your patterns & beliefs, even your cells….so that you can...


emerge enriched, VIBRANT, renewed and attuned to your inner guidance.

"Going on retreat is a time to cocoon so that we may emerge ready to return to our lives with a new perspective."

Are you looking for some time out to stop, press pause and clear your mind? Maybe it’s time to let go of the past and turn your attention to the future with clear, empowered intention?

This weekend retreat has been designed to help you do this. It is a space for you to turn off all distractions, put everything aside and focus on YOU.

In doing so you will emerge refreshed, renewed and ready to meet your life in a new way. 

Over the weekend we will explore..

Life Coaching

Soul reflections

“The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over expecting different results” Albert Einstein

Using reflective questions you will have space to reflect on what’s working and what’s not. What, if any changes need to be made and discover what’s important to you for the weeks ahead. In doing this you will know what’s most important for you helping you take intentional, purposeful action while remaining calm, centered and present.




You will be guided through healing meditations designed to help you let go of any emotions, energetic debris and anxiety from the past year and a half, helping you to clear your mind and body, open your heart and listen to the guidance within. 



Reiki Healing

I have been teaching Reiki and energy workshops for the past 16 years and so you will be bathed in healing energy for the day allowing you to cleanse your chakras and fill up your energy cup! 


Connect with nature

Labyrinth walking, sea swiming (optional), ceremony & ritual. Connecting with nature to receive her guidance will be an integral part of the weekend. 



Two external teachers will guide us through two very different workshops that will show you ways to connect with the deepest part of who you are and will give you the opportunity to express it beautifully. 🙂 



Cosy blankets, herbal teas, like minded people.  There will be lots of opportunities to connect with your fellow retreaters, that is, like minded people. Fire side chats. walks to the beach, sharing meals and this unique experience. The retreat is limited to 10 people making it even more intimate and special. 

Your Host: Ellen Shilling

I have read, studied and practiced wellness for the past 15 years. During that time I have trained with some of the leading experts, gone on retreats all over the world and held some of my own.

I am passionate about anything that helps me to live an easier life! I have studied Life Coaching, Shamanism, Kinesiology, Meditation, Mindfulness, the Celtic Calendar, EFT, TAT and many more! 

I can honestly say that all of them has changed my life! I know that can sound very OTT at times and it wasn’t this sudden flash of light that came down and I was enlightened. Sitting lotus position, emanating love (wouldn’t that be wonderful!) No, it was over time and with patience and commitment I found that old behaviours that didn’t serve me well melted away, negative beliefs no longer held me captive and I wasn’t a victim of my emotions. 

Finally I could breathe and access a peace within I had never felt before and has stayed with me since.
