Myself and Debra Wotton who co hosts the Mid Devon Reiki and Meditation Group with me are running 4 workshops in 2022 at the Rosebud Ranch Retreat near Kings Nympton. All workshops are designed to help you feel relaxed and deepen your connection with nature and the beings we share our lives with.
The workshops are set in a beautiful valley surrounded by countryside, woods and with views over to the moors providing an oasis of peace, tranquility and serenity. We are surrounded by wonderful wildlife and the animals that live on the land including sheep, alpacas, chickens, Mustang Horse Cassie, Quarter Horse Chic and Wolf Dog Jim.
We aim to develop our care and connection for all living beings as well as ourselves through Meditation and Mindful Living.
Come rain or shine we will be grounding ourselves in the present moment through Meditation, Mindfulness and Meditation in Nature.
Enjoy the peace and tranquility at the Rosebud Ranch Retreat as you take some time for you!
You will need to bring your own lunch and refreshments. A compost toilet is available on location. Please wear sturdy footwear. You will need to be able to walk along the fields and up a slight hill to the alpaca paddock. We request a £15 deposit on booking to secure your place. If we have to cancel due to severe weather or Covid restrictions you will be fully refunded. You can book by emailing email@example.com
Meditation, Mindfulness & Nature Connection
22nd May 2022 – 11am-3pm - £50
During our first workshop of the year we will introduce you to the concept of mindfulness and how you can work with it to connect with the nature around us. The day will include meditation, mindful walking, tree connection and journaling.
We will provide guidance to help you reach a higher level of consciousness, self-understanding and inner peace. Meditation allows you to take time out of your daily life and to learn how to relax, readjust and recalibrate. It is a one day workshop that will give you tools that will be useful for the rest of your life.
This is the perfect opportunity to get away from your daily routine and learn how to connect with nature on a different level which can help you overcome stress and allow you time to relax.
Reiki Healing & Meditation
24th July 2022 – 11am-3pm - £50
This workshop is about taking time out for you to relax, meditate and receive a Reiki healing. In our busy lives, we often forget to stop and take some time out. Meditation can help you tap into your inner peace and calmness, whilst connecting with the natural world around us. A Reiki treatment adds to this by centering you, cleansing your energy and allowing you to feel refreshed.
This is a chance for you to beat the stress of everyday life and steep yourself in nature and look after your own wellbeing, physically, emotionally and spiritually.
We will begin the day with a grounding meditation and then take a walk around the land and introduce you to the animals who live there, we will take time to notice everything that is around us, the day is about slowing down and taking time out.
We will then do a further meditation to connect with your spirit guides and share what we feel comfortable with sharing amongst the group. Participants will then take it in turns to receive a Reiki healing from a Reiki Master whilst the others enjoy more time on the land connecting and journaling. We will end the day with a further meditation and discussions if you feel drawn to share any of your experiences.

An Introduction to Animal Healing and Communication
14th August – 10am-4pm - £60
Kathryn Hulland has worked as an animal healer and communicator for a number of years. During this workshop, alongside Debra, they will introduce you to the concept and help you open up to your own healing and communication abilities – everyone has them. At the Ranch you will work with horses, chickens, sheep, alpacas and possibly Wolf dog Jim! There will not be any direct handling of the animals but we will connect from a distance, observing them in their surroundings.
During the day there will be meditation, discussion on healing concepts, the chakras and how we can work on ourselves to ensure we are in the best possible position to hear and help the animals in our lives.
The Alpaca Connection
4th September 2022 – 11am-3pm - £50

Closing down and last thoughts
In between the meditations you will have the opportunity to walk and sit with the herd, you will be encouraged to sit with a journal and make notes about what comes up for you whilst with them, this might be words, feelings or even drawing a picture. We will give you some prompts of things you could focus on. In between time with the alpacas we will sit as a group to share what you feel comfortable sharing with one another.
