Residential Retreat

We will be doing deep inner work together in this retreat. To support this, and the sense of community and retreat ‘container’, we ask that you live on site for the duration of the retreat. If you have a strong need to stay off-site, please contact Tracy Adams (retreat organiser) to discuss your situation.


These retreats assume an understanding of NVC. Throughout the retreat we will be using and building on the basic concepts and practices of Nonviolent Communication such as empathic receiving, honest self-expression, self-connection, feelings and needs literacy.

If you want to expand your understanding of NVC before the retreat, contact Tracy  ASAP to discuss options.
