Get Wise, Get Creative!
A Transformational 5 day Retreat
the magnificent
Broughton Hall
in Yorkshire

with Malcolm Stern & Sarah Warwick

Broughton Hall Estate in Yorkshire


A unique opportunity to spend five days over Easter at this historic country house and spa, set in 3000 acres of stunning nature, with state-of-the-art facilities.

Event Description

In response to the challenging times we are now living in, we are offering a dynamic and creative exploration into the essence of who we are, with the aim of helping participants to thrive in the face of adversity.


In this retreat we will create a safe and supportive community in which to explore the simple yet profound skills that will equip us in navigating the unknown path we find ourselves on. We will be teaching therapeutic and creative practices and encouraging each other to bring forth our gifts of imagination and innate knowing.


We will learn to listen and reflect for ourselves and each other, find ways to live in greater integrity, and ultimately to connect with the wisdom that lives inside each one of us.


We will navigate from the humdrum to the sublime as we access our soul purpose and dive into the wellspring of our creativity.


Malcolm will work in his inimitable and brilliant way as mentor and therapist, offering daily group sessions which will include psychodrama and Gestalt practices.


Sarah will be bringing her unique talents as someone who has lived her life immersed in music, art and healing, inspiring our journey with creativity and song, and helping us to connect with our inner wisdom and guidance. 


The creative practices will include conscious writing, sound meditation, the magic of mantra,  and mandala making.

The Venue

The 17 bedrooms are all wonderfully furnished, and each with its own character.


The wood-paneled Victorian Oak Room, the quirkiness of the Old Nursery, the elegance of Portico, and the regal grandeur of the North Room are just a few examples.


The deluxe rooms are extra special with four-poster beds, huge bathrooms, and stunning views. If need be we will also have use of beautiful cottages on site.

You will have time to relax and explore the diverse and magical nature within the 3000 acre Broughton Hall Estate. 

Broughton Hall is full of quirky and pleasurable things to do!
