Being of Service in Changing Times - ConsciousCafe Retreat

20 September - 22 September

“They like a willing servant rather than a servant willing”.
From a wise old man in conversation about the spirit world.

We have all chosen to be on Earth during these pivotal times and many souls have incarnated with an intention to be of service to others. There are many ways to serve, and each is important as we connect with those around us.

Come and join us at a special Conscious Café retreat in the beautiful border lands of the Welsh/Shropshire hills. This land is peaceful, inspiring, and deeply connected to ancient ways of being. This time is for you to expand, raise your vibration and reflect.

Through a combination of meditation, discussion, practical experiences, and time in nature, we hold space for you to connect with yourself and explore why you are here. We invite you to surrender to your calling because what you thought you were here to do might not be what your soul intended.

This retreat is offered specifically for Conscious Café members by Charlie & Ingrid who also offer retreats through their organisation – Starfish Space.

Your Hosts Charlie & Ingrid

Charlie ran one of the first Conscious café groups in Oundle and has been on a journey of spiritual exploration for many years. He brings balance, calm, and an ability to explain complex information in simple terms. He is a good listener and has noticed that his energy seems to stimulate people to make changes in their lives. He and Ingrid married in 2021.

Ingrid lived in Hong Kong for over 30 years and found her tribe in the international spiritual community there. She was drawn to shamanism and has trained as shamanic practitioner working with shamans in Glastonbury, Mongolia, and Columbia. She works closely with her guides and through ceremony, provides a safe space for people to connect with their guides, power animals and elementals.



The retreat starts at 2.00 pm on Friday 20th and finishes around 4.30 pm on Sunday 22nd. On Friday we will provide a buffet supper and probably finish around 9.00 pm. Weather permitting we will light the fire pit and create time for people to connect more deeply with each other.
On Saturday we will finish around 5.30 pm

We provide lunch and refreshments on Saturday and Sunday and an evening buffet and refreshments on Friday. Unfortunately, we cannot provide accommodation, but there are lots of local options.
