About This Event

Free Your Voice and connect with your soul Retreats are an opportunity to listen to your own authentic voice and then to make deep contact with your inner self. Journeying together in a safe and supportive group, you will gain a greater understanding of the healing power of sound, your own voice and its ability to transform and empower.   Your voice is the expression of your soul and represents your energy and life force.                                                     Voice work is not about singing; it is about using your voice as a profound healing instrument. Your own personal sound is a sacred and transformative tool and by harnessing its power you can expand your ability to express yourselves and deepen your understanding of your personal route to happiness. 

This expression of your inner self brings with it the potential for real and lasting change.

Review Anita Bingham at our very first CHILL OUT retreat - (Facebook 5 star April 2018) Having never been to a retreat I wasn’t sure quite what to expect, but I was delighted with my 8 day experience starting the day having breakfast outside listening to Birds singing and the wind chimes chiming over looking the pool no forced conversation or demanding schedule . Shirley offered and taken up through choice chakra dancing , open conversation, beautiful walks, creativit , treatments on a daily basis and trips out if desired eg lavender farm and Ancient hill top town, Motovun . The tranquil setting in a beautiful location gave you the choice to be at peace relaxing, or share in uplifting conversation . The rooms were clean and charming and the food delicious. I enjoyed this experience so much that I would like to share it with my daughter maybe another women who wants change on retreat.

Venue Highlights

We are in the heart of Istria within 20 minutes of the Venetian coastal town of Porec. We have views of the Ucka mountain range and surrounded by vineyards and other small villages with beautiful country walks along unmade roads.

Built in the 1800s, this beautiful, traditional stonehouse was renovated in 2006.
Four luxury rooms with en-suite wetrooms and WC in each room, allows for a gathering of up to 10 men and/or women to relax and enjoy the beautiful surroundings while experiencing life enhancing workshops, with wholesome food, often grown in the village.

Swim in our private egg shaped pool, representing, REBIRTH and have fun in the evening and relax.
Allow wellness with a complementary therapy.

We are within easy reach of Pula airport with regular flights in Spring and Summer from UK and Europe and organised taxis bringing you to our restful destination.


The LOUNGE has a lovley warm log burner, leads to an open plan hallway and oak staircase, into the handmade Oak kitchen. There is a door to the utility and downstairs toilet.
On cooler days, we can use this area for workshops and activities.
There are 4 bedrooms all have there own en-suite and separate WC.
2 doubles will sleep two people in twin beds each. (4)
2 trebles will sleep three people in each.

The house is surrounded by a large terrace with tables and chairs and we also have a lovely area of lawns and a paved area around the pool for workshops. We have access and use of some land next to the house where we have cut a grass path to a circle of trees that have grown naturally after one tree was taken down, like a Phoenix rising from the ashes of the burnt stump, we can do some lovely meditations and circle work in there. A gravelled area in the garden now has a circle of large stones and a fire in the centre for lovely Shamanic and meditation work and fun around the fire in the evenings, star gazing etc.

The garden has lawns with tree coverage on one side, lots of mature shrubs, flowers and fruit trees.

The pool is Egg shaped to represent REBIRTH to a higher consciousness. It has wide steps into a shallow end leading to a deeper part up to shoulder height, so is lovely for workshop activities with this theme, as well as for fun play and swimming of course! The pool is surrounded by a lovely natural stone terrace where we have sunbeds to lie and read inbetween any of the activities on offer, which may be around the pool sometimes.
The small garden house is Shirley's studio apartment, giving participants the house to themselves.
Workshop leaders have accommodation in a local house with it's own private bathroom. All meals are together at the house.

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

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.
