At the heart of the Sharpham Trust ethos is our desire to connect people with nature and to promote mindfulness and well-being. Located in a designated area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, with superb views over the steeply wooded river Dart, the Sharpham estate makes for a very special location to come on a retreat. Retreatants benefit from the opportunity to enjoy the peaceful, reflective and life-enriching environment of the estate and many people return, having developed a strong emotional connection to the place.
We asked people why they go on retreat, here's what they said:
To be in my highest self.
Retreat Guru's Vision
We believe human beings are innately wise, strong and kind. This wisdom, although not always experienced, is always present. Going on retreat is a beautiful way to reconnect to our basic sanity and health. Our aspiration at Retreat Guru is to inspire people to experience authentic retreats and reconnect with their innate wisdom, strength and kindness.
