You deserve time and space for yourself. To think about the things you'd love to do, to be creative and to move your body and mind in tranquil, coastal surroundings here in beautiful Cornwall. Let me provide this space for you, with my newest retreat; Wild Words and Water.

Wild Words and Water

This retreat is a route to write. It's a unique, special alchemy of the outdoors and its inherent ability to coax your creativity to the fore if you give it a little time and the right gentle prompting.

There are often so many things in our lives that hold us back from putting ourselves first; family, work, chores and just the day-to-day pressures of our busy lives. These mean that the space we need to think is consumed, and when we finally grab moments we are low on energy and short on inspiration. Creativity is the first thing to be shelved, but no longer. 

With this magical team, you'll be guided to relax with peers, collaborate, and allow your creativity to emerge. You will create writing you are proud of, whether you choose to share it with us or just enjoy the time to put pen to paper privately, and begin the process of bringing your ideas to life. 

Gently throw in some guided sea dips at one of the estate's private beaches with our team's professional swimming coach, some blissful Yin Yoga and Yoga Nidra, body movement and coastal walks, as well as nourishing home-made food from Chef Jasmine... and this just might be the escape you've always wanted. 

You'll be hosted by me, Gail Muller, and my amazing team. Alongside us will be two very special guests:

Sunday Times Bestselling author and founder of the breast cancer charity Coppafeel; Kris Hallenga.

Amongst her many incredible talents, Kris also knows about the power of the outdoors and creativity. In fact, we hiked the West Highland Way together last year as we put the finishing touches to our debut books, and used the movement and immersion in nature to stir and hone our words.  I can't wait for her to share her journey through the written word with you, regardless of whether you ever want to publish your work or not.

Esteemed and highly experienced publisher and editor of bestselling fiction; Claire Bord.

Claire has worked with Penguin, Harper Collins and most recently Bookouture, where she leads their non-fiction list. She is an encouraging, positive and extremely talented publishing professional, who is perfectly placed to share about getting your writing to readers, and the sometimes rollercoaster process of editing and finalising your work!

I'll be waiting to meet you at our stunning private Helford estate on the afternoon of Tuesday 4th October. You'll enjoy a very special few days here, amongst our 50 acres of meadow and woodland, on two private beaches and in both wings of the beautiful house. Then, you'll depart late morning on Friday 7th October after a nourishing breakfast and a final trip down to the sea should you choose. 

A more detailed itinerary of the week's activities will follow, but you can look forward to writing workshops, creative prompt sessions and Q&As with special guests. There will of course be time to write, draft, share (optional), as well as to give and receive feedback should you wish. 

These creative elements of the retreat are interspersed with activities deliberately tailored to stir your imagination, stimulate ideas and to bring you gently back into your body whilst allowing the natural world to relax you. There will be Yin Yoga and Yoga Nidra with our wonderful teacher Heinke, guided walks along the coast, meadows and woodland with myself, gentle movement, posture and strength building workshops with Josh and sea swimming sessions with our highly qualified coach Gemma.  You can join in as much or as little as you feel you'd like to, whilst taking plenty of down time for yourself to walk the grounds, read or just think and daydream. 

I can't wait to meet you there, to hear all about who you are and what you would love to create. 

"A very well thought through retreat of like-minded women. Gail has created a supportive network. I have never been on a retreat, and to not know people around me takes me out of my comfort zone. From the moment I walked through the door on Friday to leaving on Sunday, I have loved it. We have been challenged within a safe environment. We have discovered we can surprise ourselves. All in the Cornish sunshine, in glorious settings. Gails infectious. Thank you x"

"We had the most wonderful weekend and met some amazing people who have been relaxed, fun, and very easy company. We have been so lucky with weather which has made the activities and being outside so accessible. Brilliant staff, easy group, efficient and fun. It's trundled on apparently effortlessly!
