Join us for an Adventure Retreat on the beautiful island of Mull. As well as Qi Gong & Mindfulness, we will be kayaking, sailing, learning survival skills and self-defence. This is a totally new way to explore Mull and Iona.

Susie & Phil from Pause & Breathe CIC are partnering with Jon from Bendoran Watersports and Hakan - ex-Special Forces to bring you a taste of adventure.

We stay in two connecting cottages on Saorphin Farm, on the Ross of Mull – the south-western part of the island. The cottages are really peaceful – overlooking Loch Assapol, our closest neighbours are sheep and deer. We can walk to a local beach from the farm, and it’s usually deserted.

During the retreat, we will bookend each day with Qi Gong or Mindfulness. each day will be different, but we'll be kayaking, outside doing survival skills, swimming in the sea and learning self-defence skills. We plan to have a day on the Isle of Iona too.

The retreat runs from Monday 28th August until Saturday 2nd September. Arrival is from 3pm onwards, and we leave the cottages at 9am. Retreatants are responsible for their own travel arrangements to and from the cottage, although if you are arriving by public transport, we can arrange to pick you up and drop you off at the ferry port on Mull for a small additional charge.

The cost of the retreat varies, depending on the type of room you choose. For one person in a shared room, it is £1095 per person, a single supplement is £1295. There are also some rooms with double beds, for two people booking in a double room it's £2050. This includes full board accommodation for 5 nights, and all sessions (kayaking, sailing, etc).

If you would like to book, we will send you terms and conditions and take a deposit, which is 20% of the full cost. The deposit is non-refundable. We will be in contact to arrange payment. Full payment needs to be made by 5th June 2023, if you are booking after this date we will be in contact to discuss making the remaining payment as soon as possible.
