What to expect
Before you arrive
We start the experience with self-reflection exercises and a 2-hour pre-retreat coaching session with Caitlin where you’ll delve into the values and experiences that make you feel fully alive. You’ll set clear, personal intentions for your Summer Flourishing and prepare to bring your full self to the retreat.
A journey into the wild
Like all our Back to Nature retreats, this Summer Flourishing is a personal development experience that combines deep curiosity about your inner world with nature, movement, learning and human connection. It involves coaching conversations (1-1 and in group), hiking between 5– 20km per day, daily meditation and yoga, nourishing food, a luxurious place to call home and sharing stories among strangers who quickly become friends.
Expect to connect with your passions and values, to explore freely, to delight all the senses, and quite simply, to HAVE FUN!!!
An Inspired & Supported Way Forward
All too often, the holiday-glow fades moments after we return to life as usual. Our Back to Nature retreats don’t end when you pack your bags and leave the chalet.
With integration homework, useful tools to deepen your outdoor reflection practice, an in-depth post-retreat coaching session and discounted ongoing offers, we continue to support you as you take your path forwards.

For those ready to walk into nature's alpine garden and bloom large among the wildflowers
Temperatures rise, the days stretch out and all living things open up to be energised by the sun. If you’re ready to take your bold and beautiful place in the vast, interconnected network of living things, let this summer experience call you into the wilderness.
Summer in the Alps is when the mountains gift us greater access, inviting us deeper to marvel and participant in their glory. At this time of year, we will climb higher, dare to try new things, cool off in lakes and rivers and bask in the present moment.
12th - 16th October 2022
This retreat is for those in momentous transition
At this time of year, nature reflects to us a bit of everything – abundant resources, colourful celebration, loss, decay and transformation, daylight retreating, temperatures dropping. It is surely the time when we get to feel it all – gratitude, nostalgia, quiet contemplation and joyful steps into the unknown.
Autumn in the Alps does not disappoint. The cows descend the mountains, ringing in this time to ready ourselves for winter; the food gets richer and comforts us deeply after a day out in fresh air; and the colours are breathtaking
