The Garden of the Heart

A Creative Retreat Journey into Abundance 

The Garden painted by Jo-Ann Egerton

What To Expect


To allow safe passage into the garden of your heart where depth and intimacy with Yahweh & others can be shared. The journey is designed for six people & involves attending 11 retreat days over the course of a year starting April 2023. 

We will explore the themes of the nine fruits of the spirit that we live & move & have our being in, using creative mediums, ie mixed media, movement, sound etc. Allowing for personal creative meditation on retreat days & life journey learning with the healing codes.


Retreat days will be based in the beautiful area of Helford Passage in Cornwall in a garden that is part of the Quiet Garden Movement. A charming rustic chapel and a themed prayer station garden will be the perfect companion through the seasons of the year. The setting offers us individually & as a group the opportunity to connect with the garden environment to inspire & develop a creative dialogue to deepen & enhance intimacy with Yahweh.


No previous experience of creativity is needed just your heart saying, “yes I love you Yahweh, show me how deep & wide your love is,” & being open to explore this through your senses and imagination that can open up many possibilities.

My Desire


I really want this to be a safe & life giving experience that sets you up into a wonderfully new and expanded place with Yahweh. I ask you to prayerfully consider if this is the right time for you to make this journey. 


You would need to be free for the 11 retreats days, able to give yourself the time and space to meditate, reflect & record the out working of each fruit of the spirit across the twelve months.


It's a commitment and act of love to yourself and it is also a commitment that would honour the other five people and myself who will accompany you. We will learn & grow together. I look forward to hearing from you.
