This is what CEO Brett had to say – October 2020

Call me Kate’s Guinea Pig, happily so and accepted the challenge of Kate’s Working Retreat.

I had little commitment except a deep desire to have some quiet time and with 2020 working out the way it has, there was no break envisioned, so I joined Kate’s invitation to retreat.

I was skeptical but decided to give it my all, ready to accept that the retreat during a working week would never work.

Utterly surprised I managed to carve out some time on Sunday, pretty easy even after looking after my aging father, Sunday was a breeze but once the working week started, it was a different story. Monday came and went and my irritation levels grew exponentially. On Tuesday Kate sent a gentle reminder that the universe would push endless needs onto me and that broke me, my frustration levels of not having the authority in my own life to take some time out in my own business for myself truly upset me.

By Wednesday I forced time away from the office and told everyone to manage without me, fully expecting the company to spiral into total chaos.

By Friday I took the day off. The time I carved out for myself, no social media, no TV, no calls, no WhatsApp during the week it transformed my ego and the thought that all would fall apart without me.

Even messages of support from Kate were read and not replied to, my time alone was real, flavourful and exhilarating, my utopia retreat within my week was mine and mine alone and my entire being soaked up the peace and rejuvenation, surging through my body.

It’s been 2 weeks since my retreat and now I still have time between 7 pm and 10 pm to myself, the habit hooked into my flesh and took root like a fisherman’s barb, I take Friday afternoons off and additional time during the week.

My staff are more empowered without me managing them, the office has a sense of calm and sales are increasing, not because of me but because they know I  have entrusted them.

I was the greatest skeptic, now I’m the foremost advocate for Kates Working Retreat!

If you don’t believe you can do this, or you don’t think you need it, you are an ideal candidate, YOU NEED TO JUST DO IT!

It will change your life.
Thank you Kate, thank you for forever changing my life and outlook.

Interested in BESPOKE 1:1 RETREATS?

Imagine finding a way to experience a supported retreat from the comfort of your home?
Yes, even while you are still working and have other life commitments. We always feel we have to go away in order to be on retreat – but it’s not that easy now, right?  Travel restrictions, work demands, home life pulling at you… that list of obligations is endless.

Did you perhaps read my personal account and insights from my own Iona Retreat earlier this year in July 2020?

I understand retreats and what unfolds when you embark on them…
The wondering if you can?
What if life challenges, habits and fear rear their head?
Wondering how to create boundaries and gift yourself some time to sit quietly and go within?
Feel desperate ‘wanting to’ coupled with  ‘not good enough to let say yes’ syndrome
What unfolds day by day in your head, heart and body as you experience a retreat
And finally the reward of energy and bliss by  finding a way through all the noise and clutter

It’s too easy to give up on your own and just get back to work – the default position

I will guide, prep and support you to do this, EVEN if you are working full time. Or if you cannot travel for obvious restrictions, or just can’t afford to take 100% time off right now? We can work from anywhere in the world.





When thinking about retreats, folk are initially:
* A bit unsure of what a retreat entails?
* Anxious about what might be expected -too much touchy-feely stuff?
* Wonder what all the ‘buzz’ is about?
* Is it honestly worth the investment?
* Wondering if you will gel with the retreat leader?

Or the following niggles at you:
* PERMISSION: Are you battling to give yourself permission to take time off and invest in yourself?
* GROUPS: Desperate to go on a retreat but do NOT want to do it with other people
* RESTRICTED TRAVEL: Need to stop the external noise but CANNOT get away – with Kate you can retreat from home
* WORK PRIORITIES: too much going on at work to take time off. Kate helps you set up a retreat right now, no matter how much is going on.
