The Deep Awakening 2020

Thursday 7th - Sunday 10th May 2020

In these times of rapid transformation, you are invited to come together with philosopher Tim Freke and other awakening souls to bring about a profound positive shift of perspective in your life and our world.



Tim can help you experience a ‘deep awakening’ for yourself … and that changes everything! He explains “It feels like being immersed in limitless love with a wonderful sense of connection with everyone and everything, and it leads to a genuine faith in the essential goodness of existence. Once you experience it, you’ll never forget it.”

Listen to Tim read the first chapter of his audiobook Deep Awake:



Tim has been exploring spirituality since a spontaneous awakening aged 12. He is the author of 35 books translated into more than 15 languages, including a Sunday Times bestseller and Daily Telegraph "Book of the Year". Tim is a spiritual guide not a guru, who wants to personally connect with you to explore the depths of this bittersweet experience of life.

Watch Tim talk about the most important experience of his life:



For 20 years Tim has been pioneering ‘Gazing Meditation’ and other ‘Deep Connection ‘practises as natural ways to awaken. During the retreat, he will create a safe space in which you can experience how beautiful, transformative and deeply moving these practises are.

Listen to inspiring testimonials from previous Deep Awakening participants. 



Tim is internationally respected as an original thinker who shares life-changing ideas with clarity and humour. He will explore a new understanding of the evolving cosmos, the nature of death and the purpose of existence, which unites science and spirituality. He teaches that we are presently undergoing an evolutionary leap from ‘individuals’ into ‘unividuals’ (individuals who experience oneness with the universe).

Watch Tim’s inspiring talk at TEDx Berkeley:



Participants return home from the Deep Awakening retreat feeling more conscious, compassionate and ready to start a new chapter in their lives. But the adventure doesn’t end there, because you’ll be invited to join a free online meet-up on May 17 (6.30pm UK time) to reconnect with your new friends, catch up with how we've been since sharing this special experience, and discover how to become part of Tim’s international online community of life-explorers.

The venue for this retreat is magnificent Broughton Hall. The views are beautiful, the food is wonderful, and the accommodation options vary from camping to staying in a four-poster bed in a stately home!

The afternoons of this retreat are free to allow time for the experience sink in while exploring the 3000-acre sanctuary or relaxing in the state-of-the-art Avalon Wellbeing Centre, including use of the Pool Suite (20m indoor Clear Pool, Hydromassage Pool, organically designed Sauna & Steam Rooms).
