The Stories We Tell

personal insight workshops with



This week-long residential workshop brings together the main themes from the two weekends, Appreciating Who I Am and Living Life To The Full (see Weekends). We will look at past history, family stories and our own experiences, along with the inner critic and the compassionate self, and what creativity and purpose mean to us—all with the aim of opening fresh vistas and nourishing the spirit.

As always, the stories we tell about ourselves and our lives, and the insights we can gain by revisiting them, are at the heart of this week. As with the weekends, we also bring a mix of writing and other creative and therapeutic exercises together with shared conversation, in pairs and in the group, to our exploration of how we can connect more strongly and live more fully.

Over the course of a whole week there is also plenty of time and space to attend to mind, body and spirit. Cortijo Romero has a lovely circular meditation room, and the house programme includes tai chi and yoga, massage and aromatherapy, mountain walks, visits to market, and talks and cultural events of local interest.

Last but not least, Cortijo Romeo has a beautiful palm-fringed swimming pool, and the most delicious, locally-sourced vegetarian food you can imagine!
