    You will also learn the life-changing teachings that sit at the heart of the technique including:-

    The hidden causes of a busy mind
    The difference between ‘peace of mind’ and ‘peace with mind’
    Why you are what you want and what you want is already inside you
    How there is a silent solution to any problem
    How to meditate using the 3-Step Mind Calm Method
    The optimum meditation mind-set
    What to expect (and allow) to happen when you meditate
    Extra Mind Calm Games you can play with to enhance your results

    You will also have opportunities to meditate for short periods of time with the group and ask any questions you may have about meditation, ‘peace with mind’, being happier and spiritual awakening.

    Create Space Retreats

    Create Space Retreats provide an opportunity and environment where you will be able to enhance your practice and deepen your knowledge of yoga.

    All of our retreats to date have been in beautiful rural locations. For our 10th retreat, we are breaking with tradition and we have carefully chosen this beautiful coastal site in Seaford.

    Seaford Head is a Local Nature Reserve within the Sussex Downs Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. On the brow of Seaford Head sits Florence House set in 6 acres on the edge of the South Downs National Park. It stands rock solid in the sea air and surrounding wild landscape. In many ways it’s location is a metaphor for it’s life’s purpose – a haven for the spirit; however the wind blows.

    It’s a much loved venue for life enhancing workshops and retreats as it lovingly embraces divine inspiration, the sacredness and potential of each individual, and the healing power of the landscape in which it sits.

    About the Retreat

    The retreat leaders will introduce you to aspects of philosophy and practices that are often overlooked during general classes, and there will be the opportunity for you to have direct contact with the teachers and receive guidance for your personal practice.

    The program will include 2 x Yoga classes per day; early morning, evening meditation & satsang, a walking meditation, guided walks and talks/workshops on Yoga philosophy – plus free time to appreciate the gardens and local area.

    The Mind Detox Method is a remarkable way to discover and heal the hidden mind-based causes of physical, emotional and life problems. Quite simply, if something negative is happening in your body or life and you don’t know why, then this method can help.

    sandy c newbiggingDuring this fun and informative talk, the creator of the method, Sandy C. Newbigging will speak about how by making peace with your past; chronic stress is reduced, allowing the body to heal, and by clearing your self-limiting beliefs, you can use your mind to achieve brilliant success in business and life. 

    He will also share background into how the Mind Detox Method works, what he believes is the hidden cause of stress (it’s not what you might think!) and also  reveal some of the most common beliefs that he’s found to be the hidden cause of countless problems – so you can make sure you don’t have any of them!

    People from around the world have seen skin conditions clear up, chronic pain vanish and digestion disorders disappear, to name a few self-healing success stories, along with improved levels of wealth and well-being.

  • Aspects of Love – An Exclusive Weekend Retreat with Mike George & Lucinda Drayton

    Posted Jan 22nd, 2012 By in Archives With | Comments Off flame-wings-of-love-banner
    Sedgwick Park
    West Sussex
    Fri 27th – Sun 29th July 2012

    Millions obsess over it.   Thousands have died for it.   We all seek it.   Few will find it.

    Even fewer will live it.

    It is LOVE!

    It seems we are compulsively obsessed, yet slightly confused…about love. While many of us think we know love so well we often find it hard to be unconditionally loving.

    So what is love… actually?

    Where is love…exactly?

    And how do you love…precisely?

    * Is it something that should come naturally?   * Do we have to earn it?   * Or will it just show up?   * Can we expect to be loved?   * Or is that just the fortune of a fated few?   * Should we ‘feel’ love all the time or just occasionally, in some ‘emotional high’?   * And how are we to teach our children about true love in the face of so many illusions?

    YouTube Preview Image

    During this exclusive weekend retreat with Mike George & Lucinda Drayton, you will explore:

    • The wrong turns that we take in our search for love
    • The one and only thing that blocks every human heart and stands in the way of our rediscovery of love
    • How to bring the light and power of love into all your relationships
    • Why you may not be aware that your heart has been sabotaged in many ways
    • Why happiness is impossible until you know the ‘truth about love’
    • The secrets of how to ‘feel’ love anywhere anytime
    • Why, in truth, you can never ‘fall’ in love

    “Infinite and yet indestructible, it is only when you understand LOVE that you will fully understand your life. Unlimited and yet invisible, it is only when you know LOVE that you will know how powerful you really are.” Mike George

    The Retreat Leader – Mike George

    Mike George is a best selling author, spiritual teacher, management tutor and an inspirational speaker.

    Mike is one if the leading voices in the ‘awakening spirituality’ that is now happening in many parts of the world.  He guides, coaches and facilitates the personal and executive development of people in communities and companies in over thirty countries.

    Guest Facilitor/Performer – Lucinda Drayton

    Lucinda Drayton is a successful singer/songwriter. She has written a number one hit song and sold over 100,000 albums on her own label Blissful Records.

    Lucinda is well known for co- writing and performing the spiritual classic “A Hundred Thousand Angels.” She performs live all over the world playing both stadiums and living rooms with well known UK musicians.

    *** Lucinda Drayton 
    will be leading the weekend’s meditation sessions and will be creating a very special musical journey on the Saturday evening ***

    The Structure & Flow of the Retreat

    ASPECT One – WHAT is Love?
    Rediscovering the Power of the Heart

    Ask one hundred people, “What IS Love?” and it seems there are a hundred different answers! It appears that few know love as it truly is.  Perhaps that is why love so often seems to be lost in a stressful world filled with conflicted relationships. In this session: why love is lost in the mists of many illusions, why love cannot ever be ‘found’ wherever we look; what love is ‘in reality’, and what happens when love is present.

    ASPECT Two – WHERE is Love?
    Untangling our Emotions so that we may Feel Love

    With so much confusion about the true nature of love it’s no surprise we find it hard to recognise our own emotions and choose our feelings.  In this session: what’s is the difference between our emotions and feelings…exactly; why love is lost when we ‘emote’; how to ‘feel’ love anywhere anytime.

    ASPECT Three – WHY is Love?
    How to Play the Relationship Game

    While relationship is both the context and the fabric of all our lives how do we know love is present?  Why does love often disappear so rapidly after the honeymoon period?  In this session: what are the signs and symptoms of an authentically loving relationship; why what’s IN the way IS the way; love or fear – why are you together with another?

    ASPECT Four – HOW to Love?
    Bringing Love back to Every Day Life

    It’s only when we fully realise that we are the creators of our own destiny that we can restore our awareness that love is the only game in town.  Some say that we return to love or that love returns to us but, others say that ‘in reality’, love never left.  In this session: how to maintain the vision of love and ensure your decisions are shaped by love…despite those who would glorify all that is unloving!
