Where is the training held?
Venue: West Lexham Manor. Nr. King’s Lynn, Norfolk, PE32 2QN.
Half a world away (but just a short hop from London) the tranquil haven of West Lexham is a hub for connectivity and inspiration, a holistic and healing retreat venue set in an idyllic river valley replete, with ancient trees and abundant wildlife. Almost entirely powered by renewables, their ethos is one of optimal living.
The amazing natural energy of the land and beautiful scenery is the perfect setting for a healing and learning, with a calmness which invites focus and inquiry. Other activities at the venue include; paddle boarding, wild swimming, lawn games or rowing on the lake.
The majority of the training will take place in the Orangery – an indoor space overlooking the lake. This is a new and special venue, offering a very tranquil experience – the gentle flow of the water and the birdsong backing track set the scene for coming to your centre and growth. We will also use the various outside spaces around the venue for learning sessions (weather permitting). Meals and downtime will take place in a separate space within the Village hall.
Rooms are available on either a single or shared double occupancy basis. There is also one triple room available. Rooms will be in both the Village Hall. If you have someone who you would like to share a room with, please let us know this when booking.
