The Alchemy Spring Rejuvenation Retreat from £435



Set in the beautiful Tilton House nestled within the South Downs National Park, this reviving 2 day retreat run by nutritional therapist and Alchemy founder Karen Newby will be centred on replenishing our tired souls with the help of nourishing plant based food, nutrition talks, a luxurious 2 hour hypnotherapy session, restorative yoga and a foraging walk.  The focus will be to re-connect us with ourselves again using the power of plants and nature.  Join Karen and some of her esteemed naturopathic friends to guide you through 48 hours of blissful nourishment for mind and body this Spring.

Expected results:
Increased energy, especially on waking
Increased mindfulness
Overall sense of improved happiness
Deeper sleep
Loss of sugar cravings…plant based food cravings instead!

“Eat food. Mostly plants. Not too much.”
Michael Pollan’s wise words sum up how I approach nutritional therapy. Following these 7 simple words can make a huge difference to our health.  My clients continue to be surprised at how often quite simple changes to their diet and lifestyle can impact their feeling of wellbeing.  Health is not the absence of disease but the feeling of energy and vitality.  When was the last time you felt refreshed on waking?  When was the last time you felt truly well?  I’m looking forward to revitalising 12 special guests over the course of this weekend through the power of plants!  I’ll also be sharing my blends with organic juices to help boost your nutrient intake and introducing you to some of my friends I’ve met along the way to help nourish the body and soul even further.


Feel free to do as little or as much as you like!
