Immersion Retreat

22 - 27 September 2024

Join an immersive 5-day retreat designed to create deep and lasting transformation in your life. With Alex Howard as your personal guide, you will be taken on a powerful inner journey to discover and reclaim your deepest potential.

The Immersion Retreat is only available to those who have completed the RESET Program, Awakening Program, OHC Psychology program, or are undertaking Therapeutic Coaching practitioner training. It builds upon the core principles in both of these programs, to take you on a deeper dive into your ultimate potential.

At the heart of the Immersion Retreat is one simple but life changing idea - trauma in its many forms means we lose contact with our ultimate gifts and potential in life - when we are guided to reclaim this, a whole new world of possibility can open up for us.

The Immersion Retreat brings together the best of live teaching, with therapeutic inquiry, small group coaching, and immersive experiences. Much more than just an intellectual learning experience, this retreat is designed to give you the felt experience of your potential to heal, transform and live your life to the fullest.

This Retreat is for you if...

You’ve tried to do it on your own…
You’ve done online programs and struggled to complete them, or have watched intellectually, but not really put the tools into action

...and you realise how important support is
You recognise that for you to really create change you need a highly experienced practitioner to guide you through and keep you on track

You know (or hope!) you are capable of more
Deep down, you know change is possible and you dream of your life being much more than it currently is

"Create deep and meaningful change in your life, supported by a leading practitioner."


About Broughton Sanctuary

The Immersion 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.
