    Detox Your Life and Open the Door to Your Beautiful Future

    Door - Can Vital
    When I began creating this retreat, I sat down and asked myself what it was that I have always wanted to experience during one of the many retreats I have attended in the past where I’d hoped to rest, recharge and reset, but left feeling more stressed and tired than when I’d first arrived!

    This is the retreat I’ve always wanted to create for myself and if this also sounds like the type of retreat you would enjoy, do come and join me this May Bank Holiday in a glorious part of the Penedès for this Transformational Spring Detox and Chillout Experience.

    I look forward to welcoming you to Spain in May!

    With love,

    Views - Can Vital 400

    This retreat is all about having time for you in a beautiful calm space where you can let go of what no longer serves you, reconnect with your dreams and set new intentions for the future.

    This is your opportunity to step out of Clock Time into ME TIME!

    Time to Unplug, Tune In, Chillout…and Simply Be

    This is a fabulous opportunity to take some time out and to totally relax into your space and simply enjoy being you

    Time to Focus on YOU

    When was the last time you focused completely on yourself for more than a few moments? If you aren’t already the most important person in your world, now is the time to get reconnected with beautiful YOU!

    Time to Detox Mind and Body

    During the Spring Detox experience, we will reclaim ourselves by letting go of what no longer serves us in all areas of our lives including; our food choices, our dependency upon social media, our relationships, how we choose to spend our time, our addiction to filling our lives with ‘stuff’, our friendships and our lifestyle choices.

     Time to Detox the Digital Clutter

    This week is all about pressing the reset button and detoxing your life on levels. This will begin with a digital detox, which can often be quite a challenge as we realise just how dependant we have become on our modern technology.

    Time to Create a Plan for Detoxing External Clutter at Home

    Letting go of our ‘stuff’ is sometimes easier said than done and this is a great opportunity to take a look at those areas of our lives in which we feel stuck and to create a plan for releasing and letting go of our clutter when we return home.

    Time to Relax and Go With the Flow

    During the day there will be plenty of time to swim, explore the locality or to simply chill out with a good book next to the pool or in a shady spot. As we slowly relax into our being we will begin to let go of the everyday demands on our time that we have become so used to that we have forgotten how good it feels to be in the flow with life.

    The True Spirit of Christmas
    Sat 7th Dec 2019
    Kew – SW London

    Annual Christmas Concert at Kew

    This year, Lucinda will be joined by her old BLISS writing and production partner, the wonderful Andrew Blissett, offering the perfect opportunity for a BLISS reunion gig at the beautiful Barn Church in Kew, a hidden gem of a venue which is perfect for Lucinda’s hauntingly beautiful music.

    Lucinda and Andy

    Music expresses that which cannot be put into words and cannot remain silent ~ Victor Hugo

    We  live in a world increasingly dominated by technology  world so why not switch off and  take an evening out to relax  and detox.

    Be transported by the heavenly sound of Lucinda’s voice as she takes us through a selection of moving arrangements. Both of  traditional carols  and original songs.

    This will be an evening of depth and beauty, a time for reflection and peace as well as the chance to sing along with some of your favourite Carols.

    An evening of both great musicianship and heart.

    The Magic of Christmas

    Lucinda and Andy both love Christmas and their favourite Christmas carols mean a lot to them. Lucinda says that they remind her of family times; being with people she loves, lighting the fire, sledging when we are lucky enough to have snow, eating too much and walking to Midnight mass in Cornwall to sing and remember the birth of Christ.

    Black and White Fireplace

    So, come and enjoy some quiet respite time before the madness of shopping and planning and cooking takes over. Let us be together and remember the real spirit of Christmas and what real giving is all about.

    Sacred Spaces

    Stained Glass Window Barn Church KewChurches have always held a special place in Lucinda’s heart having been in the Church choir as a child and she has always loved visiting sacred places all over the world.

    Lucinda says…”The Barn Church Kew is a hidden gem of a venue and our hosts at Naked Dragon Events always attract a warm and friendly crowd. See you in Church! Lucinda x 

    Words of Love
