Carving time to recharge and rejuvenate. Slow down & unwind in a spacious, creative two day retreat, live in your own home.

Feeling burnt out, overwhelmed or in need of a safe held space to recharge your batteries this summer?

Join Lian Wilson RSMT/RSME in the annual Tamalpa UK summer retreat.

The Tamalpa UK online Summer Retreat is facilitated live with a well balanced mixture of screen time and facilitated creative activities away from the screen to support participants to have time to reflect, reconnect with their bodies and reignite their own joy & zest for life. 

“I found the Tamalpa tools helped me to cut through the clutter of everyday life and be kind to myself for a couple of days. I had time to relax and evaluate what was important to me and create some positive ideas to make space in my life for the things that have real meaning to me, amazing!” ~ 2020 retreat participant

The core intention of the Summer Retreat is to support participants to leave the weekend feeling recharged and equipped with practical, creative resources to support personal or professional work/life balance in their lives.

The online Summer Retreat is a dynamic embodied experience of the Tamalpa Life Art Process®, it can be used as a stand alone experience or can also be used as an introduction to the larger Tamalpa trainings.

No art or dance experience required to attend.

“I was surprised how my own home transformed in to my very own retreat space , I will never view my front room the same again. I can now recreate space for my own wellbeing at home ~ Tamalpa UK retreat participant
