I’ve never experienced anything quite like it in my life and will never forget it. I am a changed woman. I am calmer and nicer to not just other people, but to myself. I had a major meltdown (which is one of the reasons that I began meditating). After the the maelstrom passed, there was a sea of calm and an openness in my heart that I haven’t felt for many years and it has persisted ever since. It’s only been a week but that is a huge opening for me and gives me a lot of hope for the future. Tears are falling as I write.

Rounding Retreats: The ultimate boost
‘Rounding’ constitutes 3 main parts: asana (yoga postures, designed to trigger deep transcendance), pranayama (breathing exercises) and meditation. When cycled together in a tailor-made programme, we experience deep relaxation from where our body can heal and re-boot from its very core. Supported by classes in Vedic knowledge and beautiful organic ayurvedically prepared food, all within the setting of an Edwardian country home, these retreats are very special to participate in.
Once learned, this technique can then be taken home and integrated into your daily practice.
Retreat pre-requisite: The only prerequisite for the Rounding Retreat is that you have learnt Vedic meditation. Anyone who has learned TM is also welcome.
- The retreat provides a unique opportunity for you to remove deeply embedded layers of stress, tiredness and negative patterns.
- The bounty of benefits is extremely profound and experienced by all participants.
- It is estimated that a weekend’s retreat delivers as much rest as 9-10 months of twice-daily meditation.
- A rounding retreat is considered one of the most effective ways to establish oneself in a higher state of consciousness.
Nobody is more surprised than me at how profound this has been to my life, so thanks to Will and Jess for showing us a more fulfilling way of living.

The retreat takes place in a beautiful Edwardian country house in Sussex, near the country town of Arundel, 1.5 hours direct train from London Victoria.
Spacious light-filled rooms, open fires and sweeping grounds provide the perfect backdrop for these weekends.
Accommodation for the retreat is in one of the many beautiful twin, double or 4-man rooms. With 10 bathrooms to 14 bedrooms, it is wonderfully comfortable. There’s even a heated outdoor pool for you to soak up those beautiful rays throughout summer.
All meals are prepared with local and fresh organic and biodynamic ingredients. Each dish is specifically designed to support the rounding programme at any given time so after each meal you’ll be wonderfully satisfied and purring with goodness.
Dearest Jess and Will, I am wanting to say thank you for an unforgettable BEAUTIFUL weekend held by you both. There was such an overwhelming sense of support, love and nurturing and humour all rolled into one, that we could trust entirely the experience of 'rounding' and where it would take us. I feel blessed to be part of this amazing experience, and to have been there with such a great bunch of people this weekend.

Thank you SO much for this lovely retreat. I did not really have time to think about what to expect and I was just hoping to push my meditation skills. It just went far beyond. Not only the house was incredibly charming and welcoming, the dear fellow meditators a pure joy to be around, but you have equipped us with such a precious knowledge. I feel like I am leaving with gold in my backpack. I cannot thank you enough and will treasure this.
