We hope you enjoy browsing our retreats. Feel free to email with any questions.
This is a special invitation for you to join Maison Fish for a midweek retreat in celebration of your talents - because we recognise what it means to be a Creative Creature of this world.
To pour your heart, soul and vision into everything you do.
To carve a path for yourself when all the arrows are spinning in all the directions at once, or perhaps there’s nothing spinning at all and your creative world feels flat.
Sometimes we can feel like we’re ruling the world, then the next minute sliding off the world. We can feel like we have all our shit together, then the next day splat - but we’re always learning how to pick ourselves back up with even more super sonic force to become stronger sovereign beings.
Because that’s the way of the creative heart.
Often we are the head of all departments and exploring how to balance all life’s ‘lifeyness’ to maintain creative health. We understand sacrifice, dedication, risk taking, vulnerability and how important it is to immerse in creative community.
So what better medicine is there than to come together in nature with other humans that make stuff. To learn from each other and enjoy each other’s talents.
To recognise that this whole world has been built by humans who are brave enough to use their imaginations.
Who recognise the alchemical power that’s brewed when imagination becomes a reality that other people can touch, wear, eat, read, listen to, groove to, feel with and heal with.
There is nothing more divine than human beings who are courageous enough to put their creative selves out into this wolrd over and over again. Who are willing to take risks, fuck up, get playful with their talents until they find the sweet spot.
We praise you.
This retreats starts on Monday 28th, when the sky is ink black for October’s new moon.
We will immerse in wilderness and our creative lives in the days before the old pagan festival of Samhain on Thursday 31st October.
This is a potent time to breathe life into the forgotten ways of storytelling, ritual and ceremony. To take a drum into nature and sing a song with the trees.
The time is upon us where we will stand together as Nature turns her face towards the long dark night of winter.
A sacred time where if we get real still, real quiet and real curious... we can slide beneath the veil into the vast empty space that all creative life is born from.
“Dare you join us?” , she cackled.
So here’s the deal:
Doors open Monday 28th October, 3pm
Doors close Thursday 31st October, 11am, after a sunrise trek to a Celtic fort, Samhain ceremony and brekkie.
We ask you to bring a bit of your creative magic into the mix.
It could be a live lounge jam, a cake you like baking, a reading of your script or novel, a yoga / movement/ dance class, a game you want to lead, a shrine you want to build, you could make us all a photo album or film, you could entertain us with an interpretative dance.
It doesnt have to be a big shinding, just a little bit of you that you want to share.
We will then put together a schedule based on who is attending!
This is also an opportunity for you to take a spacious creative retreat - to get your journal out, vision board or whatever you may be working on.
The money stuff:
£250, cost rate. First come first served on best rooms/ best beds.
All meals from Monday arrival until Thursday brekkie.
Accommodation in a spectacular premium farmhouse within 200 acres of private wilderness, hot tub, private lake and swimming pool.
Wild wanderings through whispering trees to secret cabins and sacred streams.
Magic that your imagination hasn’t dreamt yet.
What’s not included:
The cost of travel from your home to the Maison.
This retreat will be held at Maison Fish DEVON, a treasure chest of a farmhouse in the middle of Exmoor National Park. Fern knows this land like the back of her hand, and is able to bring the nature alive to your senses after six years of potent magic making here.
At this time of year the valley transforms into a blanket of rusted ferns, wild orange bracken and shadowy silhouettes. You can expect forests of whispering trees, wild moss to nuzzle your bones into and meandering rivers to splash in.
Our farmhouse is a premium property, with wooden floors and open fire places. We’ll take our yoga in a converted barn, soak in our Five Elements hot tub under the galaxy, and take a plunge in either the slate swimming pool or private lake.
Maison Fish Devon is our home away from home.
Chloe is a holistic mama who will nourish your cells with seasonal goodness. Her menu is based around whole foods that taste amazingly good. This will be a heart feast of a vegetarian retreat, and any vegans and dietary requests warmly welcomed. All of our ingredients are sourced freshly from local suppliers, and our eggs from the chickens in the field next door.
You will find Chloe in her open plan kitchen, singing a long to birdsong we should imagine.
