Heart work is hard work, the most important tool is you
HeartWorks offers creative retreats, away days and training for people who give a damn. Inspired by wellbeing and design approaches. Hosted by women who listen.
Our retreats are made up of the following ingredients, in different measures:
Storytelling: We will look at how you can rewrite the stories you hear and tell about yourself to reflect how brilliant you really are.
Listening: We will help you to listen to yourself and to each other, so that you can connect and reflect on what really matters to you.
Care: We will take care of you and give you what you need to take care of yourself.
Community: We will bring kind, like-minded people together who will support one other and share the experience together.
The weekend was a perfect balance between cosy rest, warm fires, amazing food and naps to slow us down – coupled with fresh air, creative company and tasks challenging enough to move us forward personally and professionally. I left feeling energised, positive and refreshed. Ready for the next challenge. Can’t recommend highly enough.

Retreats we have run so far:
In October 2017, we welcomed a group of 8 women, all working in the field of social innovation, into a beautiful country house in Hertfordshire. We spent 2 days and 2 nights nurturing our minds and bodies.
