Residencies & Retreats

Our lives are not predestined, the world is not done, and we are not puppets in it. We are made genetically to be able to be happy in an imperfect world that is endlessly unfolding.

the way home

a 4-day transformational retreat in Cornwall


Monday 20 March at 5 pm to 11 am on Friday 24 March 2023


We are starting where all good stories begin ….

Rosemerryn Wood is set in beautiful woodland near Lamorna Cove, in the ancient heart of Cornwall. This former artist’s house is the perfect place for our four-day retreat.

“Rosemerryn woods is very healing and just the right space for a healing workshop”.

In fairy tales, it’s often in the woods where the magic happens, and in this magical setting, you can invite more playfulness into your life and discover parts of you, you didn’t know were there.

We believe creativity is not what you do; it’s a state of being; it is who you are.  The most important journey in our lives is learning to reconnect and reintegrate this natural state to enjoy a greater sense of self, more pleasure, joy and satisfaction.

This retreat is designed to provide stepping stones on the way, and maybe you can take some leaps. Are you willing to dive deep?

Over the four days, we will work creatively with Fairy Stories, exploring the relevance of archetypes, myths and stories to our lives. We will also use a powerful mind-body therapy (Pesso-Boyden Psychomotor System), which will help us go deeper into ourselves and heal and resolve the obstacles and wounds from our past to focus on the present.

Our programme starts before you arrive, an online coaching session with you will help us understand where you are and what you are looking for in life. After you leave, we will follow up with a personal coaching session to help you integrate what you have learnt into your life.

The Way Home is an investment in yourself, in your life. We know it will demand a commitment from you, but if this feels right for you, do not hesitate. Reserve your place with a deposit or contact us and we will arrange a telephone session to talk to you, answer your questions and help you decide whether to sign up for this programme.



Last year participants were invited to undertake their hero/heroine’s journey.

The retreat gave me time to reflect on specific beliefs that hinder me from living a more fulfilled life.

I addressed deeper issues that I haven’t yet been able to do in a very safe, supportive space.

 I found the beautiful house and surroundings very uplifting. 

Absolutely beautiful and with wonderful peaceful energy. I would attend again just for the location! 

 Experiencing Pesso Boyden was brilliant!

The retreat was very powerful and with such a lovely group of people.

Rosemerryn woods is very healing and just a beautiful space for a healing workshop.

A very healing experience.
