Nature is always lovely, invincible, glad, whatever is done and suffered by her creatures. All scars she heals, whether in rocks or water or sky or hearts. {John Muir}


Fire & Rain Soul Spas® are inspiring self-care retreats we’ve put together carefully and with much thought, to offer widows and widowers (dislike those words but use them for clarity) a safe space to just be and enjoy as much as they can. Just as everybody is different, every grief journey is different too. So what works for one person may not work for another. But there are certain things that rarely fail at having a feelgood effect.

We’ve created the kinds of experiences we would enjoy and find helpful ourselves – the main navigation tool being good quality of life. The greatest healer, relaxer, inspirer and therapist is nature herself, which is why we’ve chosen locations of great natural beauty.  The programme integrates powerful mindfulness techniques through fun, creative and relaxing activities. Imagine some very special, high quality accommodation, delicious food and drink, inspiring reads and chats, candles and woodfire, beach and mountain walks, a little creative touch…to get an idea what our soul spa packages offer.

It’s up to you to decide how you spend your days. We will have some yummy things planned where you can join in whenever you feel like it – a hike, island tours, guided mindfulness meditation, joint yoga practice or something arty.

21-26 February 2021 Còsagach ~ Self-care & Nature Soul Spa at Calgary Bay, Isle of Mull  New!

The Hebrides are beautiful at any time of year! The still quite dark months are a good time for taking another wee break, one that is totally dedicated to self-care and enjoyment, without any pressures. The stunning natural environment of Calgary Bay with its white beach and inspiring art trail and the tasteful spaces that are our accommodation offer the ideal surroundings for exploring things we may want to have in our lives going forward.

11-16 April 2021 Nature Nurture Soul Spa on the East Coast of Scotland – fully booked

This retreat is fully booked, but we’re keeping a waiting list (just in case the guests from overseas can’t join because of covid disruption)

As are all of our soul spas, this week is all about self-care and re-treating yourself. Yoga, walks, delicious food and drink, creative writing, a herbalist session and lots of other creative things are on offer whenever you feel like it. Our beautiful venue is right on the beach and the Fife Coastal Path. Think picnics on the beach, sunny yoga in the lush private garden, collecting pebbles, learning how to make your own natural skincare, and much more. Find out more
