Edinburgh Retreat

1st & 2nd February 2020

This is a very special weekend retreat with Lesley McDonald & Vicky Gumley. A relaxing, restorative weekend, which will be gentle yet powerful. Allowing you up to return home with a greater sense of peace, confidence, and innate wellbeing.

Edinburgh Retreat

Having spent the past 25 years studying many different approaches to personal development, coaching, and change, I have explore many different approaches to personal and professional development. I have studied NLP, clean language, non-violent communication, and so on.

Many of these tools and techniques have been (and continue to be) incredibly valuable, nonetheless I have always had a sense of something missing something, which I now realise, was driving the search.

And all the while I was facing my own challenges; relationship breakups, financial challenges, personal grief, as well as ups and downs in self-confidence and peace of mind.

At times I questioned whether it was worth the energy of continuing to train and coach others, even while valuing the results my coaching clients and those attending trainings achieved.

A few years ago I found yet another approach, at first it seemed a bit old hat. It seemed to point towards much of what I already knew. Yet at the same time I saw incredible shifts others were making through it and so, even though I was a bit sceptical, I stuck with it.

I am incredibly glad I did. It has turned out to be a game changer for me, for my clients, and for friends and colleagues I have shared it with. Not only has this approach been transformational for me.

I now understand both the value and the limitations of previous approaches, and have a sense of a solid foundation for both my work and my personal life.

 Beyond Personal Development

My relationships are richer, freer, more satisfying and more rewarding, I am less stressed, and have a greater sense of inner peace and confidence, even in the face of life’s inevitable challenges.

I generally have more patience when dealing with difficult circumstances and people, and my sense of humour even seems to hold our more often in the face difficulty times and challenges.

All in all this approach has transformed my experience of life, in subtle, yet deeply life-enhancing ways. I have seen similar transformations for others who have found their way to this work.

It has taken quite some time for me to feel ready to share what I have learned so far but I would now love to do just that with you at this very special retreat weekend in Edinburgh.

We are planning a relaxed, restorative and fun weekend, which we hope will be both gentle yet powerful. Allowing you up to return home with a greater sense of peace, confidence, and innate wellbeing.

The venue is Addiston Mains Farm, which is situated on the very edge of the city, yet within easy access of the heart of the Edinburgh.

Addiston Mains is a beautifully converted farmhouse, set around a tranquil courtyard, which is in turn surrounded by open rolling farmland. It is a special location offering an oasis in a busy world.
