About Healing Tree Retreats

Patrick - your facilitator

Patrick has a kindly compassionate and honestly direct way of guiding people to a place of clarity and self-understanding. His strength, knowledge, experience and sense of fun while supporting others is pretty evident from your initial contact by telephone, email, or on arrival. 

Your experience at Healing Tree Retreats

Your time will be filled with pleasant relaxing therapies and strategies that can be integrated into your everyday living. A unique combination of practices and therapies will be tailored to your needs. The informal and welcoming atmosphere at the centre will immediately put you at ease.

Retreats can be as short as a half-day or up to four nights/five days in duration. You will be provided with everything you need, a single or double bed in your own private chalet, as well as all meals and therapies. All food is freshly prepared for you here at the cottage, meals are vegetarian and vegan diets are easily catered for. To be clear again all retreats here are private, you will not be asked to share with anyone at any stage of your visit unless of course you have brought a friend.

Personal Retreats

Perhaps life has made you a little tired lost or confused, a change in health or personal circumstances can be withering for all of us.

You might be in a difficult role as a carer for a dependent relative and just need to rest.

Would you like help, room and support to work out other challenges financial, medical, relationship or spiritual?

These retreats are based on people coming alone or with a friend or partner. Please note that if you book to come alone then you will not be asked to share the facility with anyone else you will have complete privacy. While people visit for many reasons, there is one common purpose for everyone here and in life, that is the pursuit of inner peace and to grow in happiness.   

Other Retreats

Events are created to suit your needs: Yoga Retreats, Shamanic Retreats, Healing Retreats, Rest & Restore Retreats, Nature Retreats, Retreats to recover from loss, Retreats to release addictions. Perhaps you just want to RETREAT from the world for a while to take a rest and not bother with too much fuss, that's also on offer. A very popular event here is a retreat to help therapists renew their enthusiasm and connection to source regardless of their original training. Whatever your need I am pretty sure we can help you.

Mindfulness, Meditation, Mind Management Retreats

These are beautiful, well-presented one, two, three or four-day events. There is also the follow-up option of booking a series of weekly ninety-minute sessions here or shorter sessions by phone The retreat is an opportunity to explore and develop strategies and techniques to put you in control of your mind rather than it being in control of you. You will learn how to master your reactivity and as a result also your happiness state. Perhaps you wish to develop your existing practice, or you might simply like to explore with a view to beginning a new personal practice at home. A magical 'time out' for you is assured, be it for a ninety-minute appointment, a day, a two-day or three-day or four-day booking. Suitable for all - and all are welcome.

See you soon, Hafsa

Thank you for a truly beautiful time on my retreat. I am very grateful for your presence in my life. I think you may be the only person on this planet who really knows me :). I look forward to visiting you and Ela in the near future. Lots of Love & Hugs, Mary

Just a little token to say thank you so much for your kindness, hospitality and care. I really appreciate it. It's a lovely place and you were so good and kind to have me. Thank you once again.

Lots of Love, the girl of the Murphys :)

I am so happy to call you now my friend. This world would be so much better if there were more like you to teach the gentle ways of kindness that you share with your guests on 'The Hill'. I love this magical place and your kind heart. Patrick, words will never be enough to express how you have blessed my life, my journey, my heart. My warmest regards and most respectful affection I send you now and always,
