Where the Mind Grows - Leadership Retreats with JK



These Retreats are ideal for…

Compassionately crafted for leaders. You are aware that your Mental Health & well-being is currently being impacted by the challenges you face in work & life. 


 Being a leader is demanding & ever changing, meaning you have to be constantly adapting. 

2020 has bought new challenges for you and your team (both personally and professionally)

You find yourself feeling like all the hard work and effort you have put in to help your team thrive has fallen at the wayside, amidst Covid-19. 

Those visions of being profound and inspiring have wavered. Instead you find your self plate-spinning, overwhelmed & exhausted.

Over-worked, stressed out, restless.

Wishing things could be different. 


Two days with JK  will provide a safe, nurturing space to learn new ways to navigate your  life & leadership, putting your well-being & resilience as priority. 

After a short consultation JK will provide you with a tailored retreat experience that balances coaching, down time and space to restore in the beautiful eco-retreat and woodland. 

Get back a sense of self and take with you new ways to stay resourced in work and life.
