Bore Place Nurturing Winter Retreat 2023
This retreat is the perfect way to "retreat" one last time during the long winter months, preparing you to remerge into the World and the warmer, lighter months ahead. Our retreats really are a sheer sensory delight, full of nurturing, restoring and renewing the mind- body-soul connection.
This stunning venue is located just outside the quaint village of Chiddingstone in the heart of the Kent Countryside. Six miles from Sevenoaks or Tonbridge mainline stations and approximately 19 miles from Chislehurst.
Bore Place is a beautiful historical building set in 500 acres of organic farmland. You can feel the vision and passion of the founders Neil and Jennifer Wates who purchased Bore Place in 1976, as soon as you drive through the gates of this stunning piece of countryside. They set up the Commonwork Trust and Commonwork Organic Farm, to explore and work towards sustainability in all aspects of farming, education and food. The farm now encompasses an organic dairy farm, organic market gardens, local artisans as well as an environmental education centre. Not forgetting the beautiful Bore Place house which will be our home for the weekend. Bore Place is holding the same values as Deva Yoga, another reason why we have chosen this stunning place.
To be able to share this amazing venue with you, whilst offering a weekend of yoga, meditation, holding space to deliver a real sense of belonging, rounded off with the most delicious vegetarian/vegan food, simply fills us with joy.
There will be opportunities to take one of the Bore Place walks weaving through the fields and woodlands of the 500-acre organic dairy farm, offering stunning panoramic views across the area or to simply spend time by yourself. The choice is yours.
To top off this weekend of pure nurturing, there will also be the option to book a massage, reiki or aromatherapy treatment with our very own Kristy Smith of KMS therapies.
