Practical Magic Weekend Retreat Spring 2020
 

After the long hibernation of winter slumber, Spring feels tantalisingly close. You sense the green shoots of possibility, you peek out from under the duvet with one eye open… but life’s got you feeling like you’re not sure you’ve got the energy to burst into the possibilities of the new season, let alone get you motivated for the rest of the year.

That’s where the Practical Magic weekend comes in. This curated experience is a life-enriching weekend of re-connection, and re-invigoration designed to bring you back to your true technicolour shine. It’s also a weekend dedicated to donning that much-need oxygen mask so you can relax and enjoy some time out from your busy life. It’s the ultimate re-set button so you can re-imagine your vitality and creativity.



Replenish your energy and zest for life


Through Practical Magic – a blended melting pot of creativity and well-being self-care mastery— you will enjoy a mixtape worthy variety of good stuff, including soul-enriching meditation, deep healing relaxation with a divine candlelight Yoga Nidra & healing sound bath experience, forest bathing and getting grounded in nature, and a shake up of your wise, wild and free self with Qoya.

Be inspired and nourished in equal measure by beautiful surroundings, beautiful self-care rituals and carefully crafted food. Enjoy meaningful conversation with the collective inspiration of other women who offer support, trust and magical connection when we gather together.

This is an experience like no other.

Expect peace and tranquillity combined with a disco ball and sequins vibe in equal measure.

What a crazyass fabulous weekend, I’m still smiling!

WHERE YOU WILL RELAX AND RESTORE

This is one of the most unique places you can get for a weekend of soul-full living. Located on the outskirts of an ancient forest on the beautiful Isle of Wight, your accommodation is a stay in an award-winning Tiny Home. These quirky eco-friendly homes may be tiny, but they feel anything but, they’ve been designed with space and comfort in mind. Think cozy nooks, wood burners, lush interiors, outside decks and plenty of crisp white linen and towels.

Decelerate your life and get back to the simple things

Each home is beautifully, and cleverly designed and crafted and has its own kitchen, shower and toilet, wood-burning stove and outside deck.

The Homes:

Eilidh is the Gaelic word for ‘light’ with clean lines and natural textures.

Choosing to go to the Practical Magic Spring Retreat was one of the best things I've ever done for myself. It was wonderful - the space, the people, the rituals, the food, everything was just amazing.  I left with a full heart, a deeper understanding of myself and such a sense of calm and clarity. I can't thank Kate enough for the weekend.

Kate Taylor’s retreats are always beautifully curated and support deep, transformational work with a lightness of touch that is rare.

Tiny Homes on the Isle of Wight is the perfect location for a weekend retreat. The little self-contained eco homes provide cosy accommodation, while the studio space is light and airy, and nutritious, wholesome food, always prepared with immense love, supports the work of the retreat. I will definitely book again.

To say it was life changing sounds like a cliché but really it was. Meeting people you'd wish you'd known all your life, but then kind of feeling like you have. Making connections in body, mind and spirit.  Having everything you've been working on come together and understanding yourself a bit better. It was such an incredible weekend where a beautiful safe space was created and held.  I danced, laughed, cried, had set backs and breakthroughs.  I learnt I can heal in body and mind and was supported by the most amazing women in doing this. I left understanding more about myself than I knew there was to learn.
