New Events


We are very pleased and excited to be able to offer what we hope will be the first of many weekend courses.

 May 15th – 17th & Sept 25th – 27th

 Join us The Sanctuary for a weekend introduction to Reiki. This will focus on Level One, and will be taught by Sheila Read, a Reiki Master who we are lucky to have living in the Village.

 As we are only a small venue, we have just 8 spaces available for residential guests, sharing a twin room, or 4 guests on a single occupancy. We can also offer a few spaces to non residents – how many will depend on residential guest numbers.

 For those who would like to know a little more about Reiki……. Sheila explains…….

 When you are drawn to learn and practice Reiki you begin to travel the path to your true self. Reiki gives you a step up to your spiritual development, no matter where your starting point is. During your two days of tuition you will be attuned to the Reiki energy and learn how to use it on yourself, to help balance and heal, and also to help animals, plants and the planet. You will be taught about the history of this ancient practice and its wide range of applications in our modern, fast paced world. Meditation will be part of our weekend to bring balance and clarity to our body, mind and spirit.

Understanding the energy of ourselves and the world we live in is an important step to harmonising and balancing our lives, and to helping others and the planet we love.

Come and join us in the peaceful setting of The Sanctuary and spend time in the wonderful world of Reiki Energy.”

 The weekend includes all meals – vegetarian based, (special diets catered for, please let us know) with teas, coffee, cakes etc available all day. There will also be some free time to be able to rest, relax or explore our 12 acres and the surrounding countryside. We also have a pub in the village if guests would prefer to eat there instead (at the guest’s own expense).

 Arrival is on Friday night, sharing a meal and getting to meet your fellow students.

Saturday classes begin after Breakfast, with a break for lunch, continuing until about 4pm. You will then have free time until the evening meal.

Sunday classes continue after Breakfast, stopping for lunch and ending about 4pm.

Guests have the option of leaving after the course or staying on for another night’s bed and breakfast (at an extra charge).

 The Sanctuary is an offgrid, ecolodge set in 12 acres of mixed wood and pasture overlooking the Fowey Estuary. We have four beautiful ensuite rooms, with large floor to ceiling doors opening out onto your own seating area on the terrace. You can watch the tide flow in and out, hear curlews and owls, watch bats flying at dusk and settle into the rhythm of nature. We have no TVs or WiFi (some 4G) but we hope you will be so enchanted with your surroundings you won’t notice! Our emphasis is on sustainable living, thinking about how we use resources and retuning our lives to a gentler, slower pace of life – a perfect fit with the principals of Reiki.
