Hey, I’m Faith and I’m an author, coach and guardian of Project Roots.  I have recovered from Chronic Fatigue Syndrome/ME, depression, IBS, eating disorders, body hate and fighting myself and life.  I wanted to create a space where others can affordably take time out of that crazy-ass World out there and reconnect with what’s important, their bodies, each other and nature (life).  And, I feel I have done this right here.  


If you are just feeling a bit drained/run down, in need of detox, what to run away from it all or just need a break or some time out from society to recharge and reboot, without spending a fortune on fancy-ass retreats that are only running on specific dates, then this could be what you are looking for.  


These self-guided retreats are just that.  We nourish and nurture you here at Project Roots with beautiful and healing foods and drinks, whilst allowing you to submerge yourself in nature on our quartz hill.  You choose how to fill your days.  So, maybe you practice yoga on our yoga deck, meditate, walk in nature, rest in a hammock, swim, ground, read or anything else that takes your fancy.  We hold the space in this beautiful place and you do the rest.   


Three nourishing meals will be provided each day, with the possibility of cookery classes and workshops in anything from fermenting to making your own skin care products (these can be discussed separately). 


 We are available for these self-guided retreats, Sept, Oct, April, May & June and they generally all last a week, 12.00 Sat – 12.00 Sat unless discussed and agreed upon separately.
