Are you working in a stressful environment and finding it difficult to unwind and let go? Then this new offering from Othona is for you! A restful break with a difference. With resources for self-care when you get back home.

The context is the welcome and acceptance Othona is famed for. Then each day our facilitator Nickie Fidgin will introduce gentle energy-based practices that promote stress release and healing. Based on Capacitar, an international programme of healing and self care, they help bring balance and wholeness to body, mind and spirit. A Spanish word, capacitar means "to empower, to awaken, to bring life".

The practices draw on the wisdom of many cultures as well as modern research. You'll find they are simple self-care tools you can learn and take home with you.

"A nourishing weekend in every sense of the word. The perfect environment for learning the Capacitar practices." S.L.
