Primrose Haven Retreats

 The Magical Resonance of Celtic & Druidic Sounds with Ceremony and an optional Sweat Lodge

12-14 April 2019 and 6-8 September 2019 - Weekend Retreat   Cost: £205 including food & 2 nights' single accommodation or £255 with 3 nights' single accommodation and Sweat Lodge

6.30pm Friday - 2.00pm Sunday or 10.00 am Monday

We will be sharing some of the practices and deep wisdom of our Celtic and Druidic ancestors, looking at the symbolism that guided their lives and spiritual practices, ways in which they would have connected with the great megalithic monuments and the magical sounding that they embraced to honour and connect with their environment and spirit worlds.  This can be an opening to begin the journey to discover our indigenous souls. There will be particular focus on working with spirals and spiral consciousness, which the Celtic and Druidic people held in great reverence. There will also be a focus on ceremony and an option to attend a sweat lodge Sunday afternoon and stay Sunday night.

Feedback:

"The retreat was amazing. I have been on several workshops at Paul's. This time to have the privilege of being part of the first group to walk the new triple spiral labyrinth and then a sweat lodge was just beautiful. Jan's food as always was wonderful and the shepherd's hut really cosy. I will be back." Jenni - Sept 2018

"Thank you Paul and Jan for another magical weekend with you in the Garden of Eden that you have co-created. A time of sacred union with the nature spirits of the land and my Celtic & Druid ancestors; walking & toning your new 3-fold labyrinth with the trees being the whispering, wise witnesses; making our sounds in the Sound Chamber & toning them to a state of blissful stillness; finally sweating out and releasing all that had been evoked for transformation into the womb of the Goddess and her inner fire. Wonderful, deep healing and letting go all the tight woundings of my past that had been held in, clenched in my solar plexus. Thank you so much for a wonderful weekend of restoration of my true, authentic self. Blessing and love." Carolin - Sept 2018

"The whole Primrose Haven Centre is an oasis of earth connection in pristine pure energies of Gaia. Earth is truly alive here and it is deeply relaxing and healing to simply be here. The facilities here are awesome: the Triple Spiral Labyrinth is a powerful place for ancestral connection, healing and connection with Mother Earth; the Tetrahedral Earth Mandala is a place to ground deep and high; the Sound Chamber built into the earth is a great space for workshops and sound healing and the Celtic Sweat Lodge rounds off the wonderful offerings of Primrose Haven Centre - a real hidden gem in the idyllic Welsh countryside near the Black Mountains. Come and refresh yourself in the well of the pristine, pure and unpolluted Gaia,as it used to be and deepen into yourself. I highly recommend it!" Padma - Sept 2018

"Thank you. I think things were done in a beautiful way over the weekend. Many thanks for your care over the food. I would also like to think this sharing journey will continue." Clive - Sept 2018

"This whole experience completely exceeded my expectations and opened up my heart to the beauty and infinite connections that can be found within nature and within my own being, thanks to the Incredible teachings of Jan and Paul throughout the weekend. I will keep this whole experience deep within my heart forever and will take everything I've learned with me everywhere I go. Infinite gratitude and blessings to Paul and his sacred land which opened so much within me. Thank you." Bethan - Sept 2018

"I never came with any expectation as you can miss the subtle offerings... this weekend, from my initial meeting of lovely, warm Jan to stepping out of my comfort zone with sound and the beautiful, heartfelt teachings from Paul, I can honestly say something has changed and shifted within me and this is all down to the safe and loving environment... I have learnt, I have felt and I have loved this weekend. Thank you very much." Alex - Sept 2018

"It was amazing to experience some of the Celtic rituals, so connected with the forces of nature. It makes me want to know more and more about this ancient culture. I also received some very interesting inspiration during the weekend about future activities I'd like to create. Thank you for sharing all this wonderful knowledge." (Andrea - May 2018)

"A revelation to me. I've always wanted to find a way to connect with the land and especially the trees and the number Three I've always felt connected to. Great food and great environment." (Steve - May 2018)

"Thank you for a wonderful introduction to the Celtic/Druidic world. I enjoyed the mixture of theory and practice and have much to explore in the future. Green blessings to you and Jan." (Carole - May 2018)

"A beautiful weekend in lovely surroundings with wonderful people. Not only an insight into Celtic and Druidic spirituality and symbolism, but a deeper insight into the core principles of our entire life quest. Much to ponder. Many thanks indeed. (Alison - May 2018)

"Really inspiring. Beginning of a journey. Thank you Paul and Jan xxx (Rachel - May 2018)

"Wonderful, peaceful weekend. Beautiful shepherd's huts. Really special sacred song. Loved visiting Arthur's Stone; and food was of course, delicious. Many thanks for special teachings too. (Hilary - May 2018)

"I loved the mix of activities and the beautiful environment & connection to the sacred sounds. We had a lovely group and fantastic weekend and beautiful food". (Sian - May 2018)

"The workshop was just divine and perfectly timed for me. The love and enthusiasm with which Paul shared his huge knowledge on the subject was infectious. I have been feeling a pull to connect with the mysticism or wisdom that is closer to my roots and he opened my eyes, ears and heart to the depth of the Celtic Druidic tradition. The content was deeply enriching and it was wonderful to get out into nature to experience the energies of the Celtic ancestors. During the workshop I felt some inner shifts around my understanding and use of voice which are now being shared in my work." (Ali 2017)

"Something very special happens on Paul's workshops. He holds the space well and senses people's needs at all levels. During the Celtic Sounds course we were taken deep into the wonders of the Celtic and Druidic lore. The physical side, from the snug accommodation to the wonderful home-cooked food made by Jan just adds to the overall wellbeing one feels during the weekend. Then coming away renewed and regenerated, ready to integrate into life, somehow changed. (Jenni 2017)

"Beautiful venue, amazing food and powerful healing from the sound activities. Gorgeous people and energy and I recommend Paul and Jan one hundred percent." (Najwa 2017)

"Loved it. Beautiful space, so much to learn, delicious food, Sound Chamber is amazing, the chakra sounds deeply healing. Thank you so much." (Deborah 2017)

"Amazing weekend and lovely retreat. Everything just flowed whether in the rain, sun or by candlelight. Paul was like a storyteller - which is as I suspect what in his heart he is. Jan's food is spectacular, like she is herself. Hugs in abundance." (Jane 2017)
