“Just as the hand, held before the eye, can hide the tallest mountains, so the routine of everyday life can keep us from seeing the vast radiance and the secret wonders that fill the world.”
Nachman of Breslov
This is your invitation to leave the dull routine of everyday life behind and step into the extraordinary realm hidden in plain sight on the streets of London. Discover a sense of wonder as you get to know this extraordinary city and see it through fresh eyes. What a wonderful place to imagine and set into motion new possibilities for your life.
“Thank you for waking our senses to all around us, a new and deeper way of looking at the world… So many discoveries all over London. This was a wonderful experience.” Geneviève
London is an ancient city built up layer upon layer over centuries. It is a crossroads where cultures converge, where old meets new and where discoveries await around every corner.
A fashion mecca London is also a feast for all the senses. Walking on the streets is to connect with hundreds of years of history. And strolling through the plentiful green spaces in the very centre of the city nourishes the spirit.
You’ll join a small group of women. A beautiful townhouse in Belgravia will be your home away from home. From here we will make daily forays out to London’s palaces, gardens, galleries, markets, alleyways, waterways, eccentric collections and hidden curiosities.
The London Experience
This experience is unique. Co-created in 2019 with Darlene Chrissley it has been carefully crafted and curated by a Brit who called London home for many years. My name is Sarah Sedcole, and I will be your host and guide. I have a life-long love affair with this city, and with personal transformation. This retreat is the culmination of all things that I have come to cherish. I would love to share them, and my favourite city in the world with you.
This year we will be a small group of women. The program is designed to give each woman a truly magical, life-enhancing and fun experience. In addition to getting to know London intimately, you will learn how to fire up your inner compass to guide you toward experiencing a meaningful life full of wonder.
Whether you are coming for a break, a personal breakthrough or to have an immersive experience in London this is for you.
“The trip was well organized and you made us feel pampered and at home….(I took home) a heightened sense of awareness and I find myself going back to bits and pieces of it. (I look) at things differently when exploring, even during a vacation after the London trip; taking it in with more focus and purpose…Mostly I enjoyed a sense of peacefulness in spite of bustling and touristy London. Remarkable!” Louise
My wish is to offer you 6 days of exploration that will transform how you see London, and yourself.
“You made this week a magical one for all of us.” Michèle
Dates for The London Experience
2020 CANCELLED. STAY SAFE AND SEE YOU NEXT YEAR!
The retreat is structured in such a way as to give you organized activities and time to yourselves. There will be 5 days of forays into favourite areas of London, late afternoons and evenings to do as you choose and a full bonus day at the end for your own exploration. Each day we will stretch our bodies and reflect on the day ahead before we set out. I will be on hand to ensure you all have the best possible time.
Our home base will be a gorgeous house in the heart of exclusive Belgravia. This is the perfect hopping off spot for our adventures many of which are walking distance away. Central and well connected by transit, Buckingham Palace, The Mall, The Houses of Parliament, King’s Road, Westminster Abbey, the Tate Gallery, Physic Garden, National Gallery are all within easy striking distance by foot. There are neighbourhood markets, some great pubs and local restaurants on our doorstep. This is also the place where this week away was conceived.
The house itself has a beautiful large living area where we can relax or do yoga, ELDOA and stretches. It has plenty of space to chill, read or talk, with a large kitchen, terrace, sitting room, garden and well-appointed bedrooms. It’s situated close to cafes, restaurants, supermarkets, delicatessens, a public gym with a pool, and close to the River Thames, Hyde Park and St. James Park (great for any of you runners!). It is very near the Victoria overground and underground station, Pimlico underground, a 15-minute walk to Sloane Square and only 10 minutes to Buckingham Palace.
