What to expect

Participants are gently guided through a carefully choreographed series of experiences, with the aim of processing deeply-held emotions, to remove conscious and unconscious blocks that prevent you from living an authentically joyful life. This unique journey incorporates a mixture of silence, catharsis, meditation, visualisation, witnessing, ritual, expressive breath and bodywork, movement, dance, touch and the healing power of love.

Each day begins with a body-based experience using movement and music to support you to drop deeply into your senses. At The Bridge Retreat, we focus on feeling rather than thinking, experiencing rather than analysing. You will then work in the group to explore and share on subjects including grief, loss, childhood wounding, unmet needs, intimacy and love, spirituality and service.

In the afternoons, you are given time for personal reflection, rest, and enquiry. Silence, meditation, and written work support this process. At certain times, we offer the opportunity for you to be witnessed by the group which is a key part of the healing process; to be seen, heard, validated, and understood. These sessions then prepare you for some evening rituals which are varied and hold an element of surprise. They can include chanting, fire, movement, and touch. All rituals have a specific purpose and proven methodology to support deep-healing.

Throughout each day you will be supported by the highly-experienced The Bridge facilitators. They will guide you through your own journey, gently nudging and encouraging you to confront and heal the parts of yourself that may have remained unconscious.

This combination of individual, group, and body work alongside profound ancient ritual practices provides you with a safe healing space to go deeper than you imagined possible. You can expect to reconnect with your true self, reaffirm your purpose, and experience life from a place of peace, love and freedom.
