Words from Sophie Bolton – yoga teacher of our most recent retreat.
The Lime House hosted a beautiful Creative Freedom Retreat this weekend with Sophie Bolton and Tallulah Rendall – UK practitioners specialising in Qi Gong, Yoga and Freestyle dance (Dancing Freedom). www.yogasophie.co.uk and www.soundofqi.com.
The serenity of the surrounding countryside, the organic farmland and the cleanest freshest air provided a safe and sacred atmosphere in which to delve into the hearts of those present. Lasting memories are of low hanging mists over the valley, silhouetted Crows perched on gateways as the sun rose for morning Qi Gong practice – so beautiful! The Rock Farm team couldn’t have been more welcoming, accessible and efficient. A big thank you to them for making our retreat flow so smoothly. Thanks to our cook Mary who flew over from England and provided delicious vegetarian meals from the Rock Farm’s harvest of Chard, Beetroot, salads, herbs, potatoes, as well as thanks to the chickens for providing us the freshest of eggs!
The retreat ended with a magical day on the Sunday for The Rock Farm’s Straw Festival. UK based Helen Yeoman’s acapella choir aka Song Camp provided our retreaters and festival guests an stunning opportunity to open the festival and connect through the healing and joyous medium of song! Helen is a gifted Songstress and Choir leader. www.helenyeomans.co.uk.
The stormy unpredictable weather on Sunday only added to the magic of the weekend. Crystal clear skies fell over the amazing Rock Farm project for a farmers market full of delicious local goodies, a pig roast, pizzas from the clay hand made pizza oven, horse and cart rides, tree climbing and tours of the Organic Farm, Lime House and Glamp-site from Carina and Alex Mount Charles.
Such a cracker of a weekend up there on the Farm – PEACE, FUN, SERENITY, RESTED MINDS AND BODIES, FULL TUMMIES AND BIG SMILES.
Thank you to Carina, Alex, Michelle and all the Rock Farm for all the love and energy you have put into this project to make it something very unique and special.
