“AHN will challenge what you think you know about nutrition and open your mind to a whole new school of thought. You will learn to reconnect your mind - body - spirit. I think about this today and wonder how I could’ve ever seen these as three separate entities. The moment I started to draw connections was the moment where things started to make sense and click both internally and externally. I am profoundly grateful to AHN for showing me the way.”

About Broughton Sanctuary

The Longevity Wellness Retreat will be held at the 3000-acre Broughton Sanctuary, situated in the very centre of the UK, in the foothills of The Yorkshire Dales and one of the most picturesque parts of the country. Established in 1097, Broughton Hall has been home to the Tempest family for over 900 years and enjoys a rich history stretching back over the millennium. Surrounding the historic Broughton Hall are formal gardens studded with statues, ponds, parterres and fountains offering a glimpse of 18th century fashion all set against contemporary architecture making the location a truly unique experience. The Broughton Sanctuary is home to one of Britain’s most exciting nature recovery projects, with an extensive tree-planting and rewilding programme. Broughton is a place dedicated to the journey of coming home and rewilding the spirit.


About Avalon Wellbeing

The retreat will take place at Avalon, a state-of-the-art wellbeing centre and beating heart of the Broughton Sanctuary. This stunning building is based on biophillic (organic) design with sacred geometry and the Fibonacci incorporated throughout. During your stay, you will have the opportunity to experience the unique Pool Suite: a low-chemical swimming pool looking out onto the adjacent woodland, a sauna, a steam room and hydrotherapy pool. There are many places beyond the building itself in the Sanctuary grounds to return to source, from meditation labyrinths, wild swimming reservoirs, a cosmic garden and much more.
