Mending Hearts launches their first ever relationship retreat. This will deliver a truly unique three n experience that includes both individual and group coaching along with meditation, luxury activities, healthy nutrition in a beautiful idyllic setting in Sussex, England.
The group nature of the is probably the most beneficial aspect of the healing process. There’s a profound sense of loneliness to a breakup, she says. Beyond the loss of a partner, people tend to isolate themselves further by thinking no one else could possibly understand what they are going through. At Mending Hearts, the heartbroken are surrounded by like-minded people and there’s a comfort in knowing they are not alone.
Experts say getting over a relationship can be as hard as coming off drugs. No one enters into a marriage expecting it to fail. Still, more than 20 percent of first marriages end in divorce within five years, and 48 percent of marriages dissolve by the 20-year mark, according to 2006-2010 data from the government’s National Survey of Family Growth. The changes brought on by separation and divorce can be overwhelming. But now more than ever, it’s important for people to take care of themselves.
Hosted at a luxury country house in Sussex, the tech-free retreat includes bbq fire pits, meditation, gourmet meals and one-on-one therapy sessions with a trained psychologist. But the bigger draw might be the group sessions with trained therapists, where participants talk through their failed relationships, analysing what went wrong, and how to avoid issues in the future.
Life coach and Founder, Gilly Da Silva says,' I noticed that a lot of my friends had either broken up with their partners or about to including myself. I realised there was a gap in the market for somewhere for people to get help and support along with share their experiences with strangers who are going through a similar experience without being judged. I want people to leave with a new positive mind set and hopefully work at mending their friendships with their ex partners and spouses so they're able to move onto the next step more amicable for the sake of their kids and families.'
Taking place from 16th-19th October 2020, this all inclusive retreat runs across three days and four nights and includes luxury accommodation, meals and full use of the resorts amenities and activities. The days will be split between talks from a range of coaches from life, divorce and dating. In addition, group counselling sessions will be run by Mending Hearts registered psychotherapist's also allowing guests to have one-to-one sessions upon request. For those that would perhaps prefer not to stay the night, Mending Hearts welcomes a day visit which runs from 10am-6pm.
