The Journey Retreat

Journey Retreat At Sandhill House

The Journey Retreat is a transformative retreat experience of connection and wellbeing for women. We will go on a journey with our body and breath, with movement and stillness, to balance our energy and remember our wisdom and strength.

On The Journey Retreat, the destination is here, not there. We will immerse ourselves in the beauty of Donegal and the ambience of Sandhill House as we relax into timeless presence,

Take some time just for you to rest, reset and restore, to relieve stress, calm your body, to come back to centre; to feel centred and strong.

The Journey Retreat will be carefully curated to include a beautiful blend of:

  • Movement: to strengthen and align. (Yoga, Pilates and intuitive movement)
  • Stillness: to rest and restore. ( Meditation and Mindful connection in nature )
  • Forest bathing and optional sea dips.
  • Fireside Gathering 
  • Time in our hot tub and relaxation area
  • Journaling and wisdom practices to embody our feminine energy and strength.
  • Beautiful, wholesome food to nourish and fuel us on our journey within.


The Journey Retreat

The journey retreat will include a beautiful balance of movement and rest, time in nature and connection with each other. We are made to share experiences and our capacity for growth is so much greater when we undergo these transformative experiences together.

We honour the innate connection between the mind and body, using the body as a gateway to healing and wellbeing. Tuning into the body’s sensations, processing and releasing trapped energy, fostering a return to balance and equilibrium.

Connecting with the energy of nature can be the antidote to our stress-filled lives, supporting our body’s natural capacity for wellbeing and healing.


You will leave Sandhill House with new habits to take home and continue with, so your journey doesn’t end when The Journey retreat does so.

Come join me on this special journey back home to yourself, to feel more aligned and connected, trusting your inner wisdom as you focus on your health and wellbeing.
