The pandemic has impacted many in their mental, emotional and physical health. In addition there is a significant increase in symptoms of post traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) as a result of  lockdowns, insecurity and isolation. According to Governments reports (1) "The impact of the COVID-19 pandemic is a significant public health concern, with a growing body of research describing the effects on the population since March 2020."


Everyone is in need of an opportunity to now restore balance in their autonomic nervous system, to strengthen their parasympathetic nervous system and switch off their flight-fight response system to restore your health and wellbeing and undo the unhealthy negative impact of the pandemic. 


Join our recovery and regeneration holistic health retreat in the outstandingly beautiful Shropshire hills; over three days, you will embark on a practical journey of self-healing through carefully curated classes and workshops led by world class experts in fields of cutting edge science, integral health, mind and consciousness. 


Building on our 20+ years experience of running health and wellbeing retreats worldwide, The Flame Retreats® have uniquely brought together world class expertise, authentic ancient wisdom and the latest science in human development to deliver a profound retreat experience with positive and transformative impact on our health, wellbeing and personal development.

  • The COVID-19 pandemic led to increased adolescent depressive symptoms and decreased life satisfaction

  • If the COVID-19 pandemic had not occurred, estimates suggest that we would observe 6% fewer adolescents with high depressive symptoms which is a difference of 1.6% in prevalence (27.1% to 25.4%)

  • There was no overall effect of the COVID-19 pandemic on adolescent externalising difficulties

  • Girls’ mental health may have been more negatively impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic than boys

This weekend getaway is an engaging and transformational experience that not only offers a physical rest, psychological, emotional contentment and rejuvenation, but also offers us the knowledge and practical approach to self-compassion and self-care, food as medicine and movement to cultivate both internal health and increasing agility and energy.
