Journey Into Stillness: An Autumn Equinox wellness retreat

When was the last time you took time for your self and listened to your inner knowing? Take time to “just be” on this mini journey of self-discovery.  Immersed in the natural surroundings of Elmfield Estate’s magnificent trees and peaceful gardens, you will be guided to connect with your stillness within. Held by the natural world, totally secluded from the outside and from everyday life, guests are taken through a series of simple practices, to reconnect with themselves, each other, and their natural environment.

After an afternoon of slowing down and attuning to the rhythms of nature under the gentle care of Jane Shaw and her Elmfield team, guests feel like they have stepped off the fast turning wheels of life to recharge and restore, inspired by the connection to the Elmfield land and the stories it holds.

The family-owned estate which dates back to the 1700’s, has a wonderful history of evolving buildings and families who have lived there. You can’t help but notice the tranquillity of the estate, with its majestic trees holding space for every guest.

“I left with the most beautiful, calm feeling, and am working to recreate that in day to day life as much as possible...thank you for reminding me what I was missing”


The retreat is led by international educator Jane Shaw whose family home is Elmfield Estate. She is passionate about health and wellbeing, as well as each tree and flower in the estate gardens. Her team listen with care and attention to each visitor, sharing their valuable knowledge and research-based mindfulness practices. Jane Shaw’s style of facilitation has been described as bardic in nature, weaving poetry, music, eco-psychology and embodied practices.  Jane has many years’ experience running retreats, creating the content from her continued clinical practice and academic research.
