"The magic of "Musical Medicine" will come into its own.
The application of such healing potencies will not be limited just to man's body and mind. It will be an agency for building and healing his soul as well."
Corinne Heline - Author and Mystic (1882-1975)
Open to Reiki II Students and above - all lineages welcome
This five day (four nights) retreat combines the sacred marriage of sound and Reiki healing techniques, the intention being for participants to find, awaken and embrace their own inner Divine harmony. Divine Harmony is the balanced and elevated state where our emotions, mind and bodies are in tune with our intentions. This retreat has been created to take place around the Summer Solstice, a very special time of light and maximum potential in the natural world and we will be also exploring those aspects of ourselves at this special time. The retreat will combine Usui (both Western and traditional Eastern) Reiki practises such as working with the Precepts, Reiju, Japanese Techniques, Reiki Treatments, Shamanic Reiki, Reiki Drumming, Kotodama (sacred chants of the Usui Reiki System), Sacred Chant & Mantra from other disciplines, Toning, Gong / Sound Bath Performance, Fire Ceremony, Journeying, Meditation and Silence, and will give all of the participants the opportunity to bring harmony and healing into their lives, a balance between doing and being and the opportunity to find personal liberation through sound and light. Everything is adding up to a wonderful few days of insight, mystical happenings, magic, healing, self-realisation, love, light, connection, friendship and joy!

We are fortunate to be staying at the magnificent and magical Buckland Hall. This incredible property has an ancient history stemming back to the time of the Normans, Saxons and Romans and more information can be found in our brochure. Since 1999 Buckland Hall has been a holistic retreat and conference centre as well as a wedding venue due in part to the magnificence of the venue and its beautiful surroundings and is internationally renowned as one of the UK's finest retreat destinations. The house is stunning with incredible wood carvings throughout, large teaching and conference spaces and many different breakout rooms all with individual and unique energy. There is a very high vibrational energy here. Large windows look out onto the beautiful scenery which surrounds the opulent mansion and there are many areas for relaxation. Bedrooms are well appointed with their own en-suites. Bedroom accommodation is shared on this retreat, either in dormitories of four beds or twin/double rooms and it is also possible to book a few single rooms at extra cost (see tariff).
One of the things that singles Buckland Hall out from other centres and venues is its vegetarian menu. Anyone attending any of the events at this space gets the opportunity to taste the gastronomic vegetarian delights with continental breakfasts, two-course lunches and three course dinners, all being served in the magnificent dining room. They also cater for gluten free and vegan diets.
Buckland Hall is set in the spectacular countryside of the Brecon Beacons National Park, surrounded by mountains with views along the Usk Valley. There are 60 acres of gardens, parkland and miles of country walks along the River Usk. Some of the specimen trees in the arboretum are over 400 years old. There are many beautiful spaces to roam and unwind in during the free time allocated. The ornamental lake with its graceful swans is a particular haven of tranquillity. Buckland Hall is the perfect venue for our retreat and will really support and nurture us during our healing and self exploration over the course of our stay. It is only 3 hours from Central London by road or rail, 2 hours from Birmingham and 1 hour from Cardiff. Easily accessible it has ample free parking on site.

Quotes from past retreat participants:
"Thank you very much for the wonderful retreat - I really loved it. It was a great group of people and I loved all the new practices which you introduced me to. I am feeling great today and am starting to incorporate some new practices. The whole experience was more powerful than any recent healings I have received. I do not feel it was too much though - it's true that it's never more than we can handle! I feel I have much food for assimilation, which is very exciting."
"Just to say thank you for last week's retreat. It was such a special weekend and beautiful place, despite the weather! As usual all of the people were lovely and I found the whole weekend to be very clearing."
"First let me thank you for the intriguing and beautiful time I had on the retreat. Some parts were very moving indeed. The most memorable part was the Community Reiki Healing. That was gripping and wonderful and the programme was very helpful to me."
"Thank you, it has been a wonderful, life changing experience."
"The beauty I experienced, both during the weekend & since, is stunning ... bringing me to tears of joy each day since."
"The weekend gave me an unforced sense of 'this is what I am meant to be doing' i.e. working with sound. It was so wonderful to play without expectations, to receive healing from others and to experience your teaching and holding space; you offer from a place of deep humility and wisdom. And of course the venue and its energy was the perfect support for our inner work."
"Thank you for the wonderful experience this weekend it truly was inspiring. A big thank you for all your support throughout. Your warmth and compassion really helped as did the amazing support from everyone in the space."
"Very many heartfelt thanks for a fabulous week. Coming back down to earth now gradually. It was marvellous from start to finish and I loved the beautiful space you created for us to work in. Thank you again for such an amazing healing and transformative week."
"Thank you Sarah for putting together an amazing set of vibrations, love, soul and heart with wonderful people. I have come away feeling blessed to be in such magic company and inspiring environment."
"Thank You for a wonder-filled week. Filled with beautiful souls. Deepening my Heart, Soul and Spiritual practice. Many things to contemplate in the coming weeks and months. I feel fully restored and rested, and ready for the next phase of my journey."
"A big thank you again for such a magical retreat, and for all your hard work in master-minding it. It was a privilege to be involved in such a vibrant and supportive group. I am still assimilating all the experiences. It took a fair bit of will power to drag myself away from the magnetic environment yesterday."
