During these turbulent times, many people feel a deep longing within themselves to return to their natural way of being; calm, centred and at peace. They also recognise, now more than ever, the need for a deeper connection to life. A desire to develop or strengthen their spiritual resilience, in order to face the joys and challenges that lie ahead. In daring to turn towards our deepest needs and fears, our historical wounding and self limiting beliefs, it becomes truly possible to live from a place of love, lightness and truth.
The Co-founders of The Bridge Retreat, Gabi Krueger and Donna Lancaster are offering this rare opportunity to benefit from their extensive experience, guidance and wisdom within the comfort and privacy of your own home, whilst in connection with a virtual community. Donna and Gabi will safely guide you through a process of deep grieving and release of the associated emotions, in order to free yourself from any emotional blocks holding you back or hijacking your life, so that you may return to, and be guided by your true authentic self.
In this online experience we will be following the original course outline, with each day focusing on a particular theme supported by well established therapeutic exercises, rituals and practices. The programme offered will include working with grief and loss as part of the human condition, anger as life force, strengthening the body, mind and spirit connections and exploring our ancestral legacies. We will work with healing the inner child and building resilience for happier healthier relationships. Especially the one with yourself. As we work together through this well established and powerful healing process, you will slowly begin to feel your innate Joy and playfulness returning.
During this personal retreat to be held over 2 long weekends Friday to Sunday, each morning will begin with a centring body work or meditation practice, followed by an educational piece on the theme of the day. You will then have a chance to ask questions and further explore the subjects in relation to your own life’s journey. The afternoons are a time to deepen the community aspect of the retreat by working in small groups to share and be witnessed. As well as time for silent contemplation, connection to nature and rituals to support your healing process.

These requirements are a very important part of your experience, allowing you to drop deeply and go beyond the mind, with nature, stillness and solitude offering their own medicine.
