About us


Facilitated by: Colette Savage
Date: 3rd - 4th November 

Room: Yellow Rose Room / Meditation Hall
Cost: 1 person €250, 2 people sharing €420

Aimed at equipping teachers and parents with practical effective tools to use for both themselves and children.

A wonderful weekend relaxing and experiencing some of the best mindfulness techniques, with a talk on the neuroscience of mindfulness.

Walk away refreshed, rejuvenated and equipped to face life’s challenges and support our kids.

Mindfulness gives you a choice in every moment to replace fear, frustration, stress and anxiety with  compassion, concentration, emotional balance, and greater joy.

Low level chronic anxiety and stress is wearing out both our minds and our bodies, constantly releasing small amounts of adrenaline and cortisol into our system and we are simply not wired to cope with this and neither are our kids! There are ways to combat this and drive down the levels of anxiety we experience.

Spend a weekend switching off and experiencing each of the three main mindfulness techniques which provide a specific tool to help us and our kids develop a peaceful mind and a more relaxed body.

We will listen to some relaxing music, Tibetan singing bowls and learn to colour mindfully a remarkable relaxing technique to develop!

Colette is a lecturer in Mindfulness at the School of Education, University of Aberdeen and has run workshops for hundreds of teachers and parents. She has been practicing mindfulness and meditation for over 20 years and has visited India numerous times to sit with wise monks and teachers and develop her practice and understanding.

“In the real world, I had been in therapy for years due to depression and had major self confidence issues. I have gone through huge inner transformations during my six months at Creacon. I never dreamed it would be possible for the traumatic experiences of my life to be healed like they have been.” – Cindy

Why Retreat?

We asked people why they go on retreat, here's what they said:

After participating in more yoga classes and events this year than in my entire life, I am yearning for the opportunity to attend a professional retreat. The opportunity to grow my practice, learn from talented students and teachers, and immerse myself in this gorgeous Red Feather Lakes sanctuary is the dream of a lifetime! Sara

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.
