Sacred Yoga and Shamanic Wisdom Retreats
Ellasfield the family run retreat space specialises in the private retreat experience, whether you are a solo traveller or have gathered a few friends or family together for a private retreat.
Retreats at Ellasfield take you on a journey around the ancient medicine wheel of these lands, long forgotten wisdom that will reconnect you with yourself, help heal ancestral wounds and will lead you back to that ineffable spirit of life, reemerging refreshed, re-invigorated and in touch with the raw intensity and power of life.
All Retreats in the Sussex countryside are easily accessible from London, Essex, Kent, Surrey, Hampshire, Berkshire, and all surrounding areas and include daily sacred yoga ( elements of Hatha, Kundalini, Restorative, Nidra and Vinyasa flow) as well as deep-working meditation practice, infused with unique guided workshops focused on the Halo Method, Shamanic Healing and Spirit Animal Journeys. Each day you will savour nourishing, fresh meals and free time to connect with nature and enjoy the many walks nearby or enjoy your hot tub, swim spa.

Its time to shift down a gear and arrive into this moment with the spirit of Cacao. Working with the medicine wheel of these lands we create a sacred space to quieten the mind and sink into the heart; to connect to your authentic power, creativity and connection to all.
Each ceremony is created for your specific event.
12.30 ~ Halo Method Mindfulness Workshop
Wherever we walk, we can practice meditation. This means that we know that we are walking, we walk just for walking. We walk with freedom and solidity, no longer in a hurry. We are present with each step and when we wish to talk we stop our movement and give our full attention to the other person, to our words and to listening. Each step is nourishing and healing. As we walk, imprint our gratitude and our love on the earth.

'We are very thankful for an amazing experience
during our weekend at Ellasfield. It has been lovely
to be able to connect with the nature, be close to
the animals and to experience all that Kim and Lee
had prepared for us and guided us through. We had
an opportunity to learn more about ourselves, we
have been reminded what is important and what to
pay attention to in our body and mind and
educated on what else there is that we did not
think of before. The place was full of love, we were
welcomed and taken care of but given space
at the same time. We will definitely come back as
this experience has taught us a loT.'
Beata and Joanna Bernatowicz
KIM AND LEE were so welcoming and it was genuinely a real privilege to spend time with them, talk to them, and learn from them. two very calm, generous and kind hosts. the food was out of this world amazing vegetarian and vegan choices - from cooked breakfasts to chocolate cake - they were all delicious, nutritious and plentiful. highlights for me were an evening yoga session with kim and an early morning stretch in the peaceful yoga studioand the spirit animal meditation with lee around a cosy fire in the tipi which was just so cool on its own!
we left with huge smiles on our faces and warmed, open hearts

"I came to EllasField for a personal retreat after a particularly stressful couple of years culminating in me leaving my job. On arrival I was welcomed by Kim, who simply exudes loving kindness, and I immediately relaxed. My shepherd's hut was so lovely and comfortable with a real homely feel to it and the setting is perfect - I very much enjoyed looking over the fields and watching the ponies, as well as petting the friendly pigs! I received all food and refreshments as part of the retreat and I couldn't have wanted for more - the food was nutritious, delicious, plentiful and presented with real love and care. It was delivered to my hut which added to my sense of relaxation. Healthy snacks were always available. Kim has a fantastic yurt where she led me through personally tailored meditations, yoga, shamanic healing and cacao ceremonies over 3 days. I was able to be totally myself, talk about my issues, and accept healing. I also worked with Lee, who again listened with attention to what I was experiencing and offered healing to me in the form of guided meditations and the halo mindfulness method. His sense of calm and steady confidence with no judgment enabled open dialogue and honesty and led me to new thought patterns about myself and my life. On top of all this amazing stuff, I had use of the swim spa and wood fired hot tub, so I could chill out in between healing sessions. There are beautiful countryside walks from the door and I was given time to myself to read, sit outside the hut and relax or do whatever I wanted. I can't speak highly enough of my time at EllasField - it was a real gift - thank you Kim and Lee"
