It is situated in the quiet and quaint village of Walberswick. The cottage is a 10 minute walk from the beach, whilst the nature reserve is just a few steps from the door.
The cottage is simple but cosy. It is not a luxury retreat centre but a homely place for you to retreat to from everyday life for a few days. There are 4 bedrooms one with private wc, and 2 shared bathrooms.

Retreats at The Sheiling
We run 4 night organic Juice fasts and 3 night Reiki Level 1, 2 &3 retreats.
Juice detox retreats
We believe giving the body a break from daily life and food helps to bring about a more healthy and vibrant you. It’s a good opportunity to give up smoking, coffee, meat, dairy and/or unhealthy eating and drinking habits. During the fast we do gentle yoga practices suitable for beginners and enjoyable guided meditations to help support you in relaxing, healing and transitioning to a healthier lifestyle.
Please note this is not a luxury retreat and our prices reflect this. Things are not perfect, the accommodation is comfortable and warm but a little frayed around the edges, so if you are looking for somewhere to feel at home, to just be you, with no pretenses then this might just be the retreat for you, if you are looking for a perfectly oiled high end retreat it most definitely is not. The juices are all organic, where possible using locally grown fruit and vegetables.

REIKI LEVEL 1 OR 2
Reiki means universal energy or spirit energy, it is drawn through the practitioner, who works as a channel for the energy to pass through.
Reiki is a method of natural healing that works to put the mind and body at ease and so participate in its own recovery. Reiki treatments help to relieve stress and pain both at a physical and emotional level, restoring a sense of balance and well-being.
Reiki is a wonderful gift that everyone can learn. It is gentle, life-affirming, practical and non-invasive. Reiki will help you restore a sense of balance to yourself, to loved ones, friends, animals, plants and the environment around you. Reiki also helps you connect with your higher self, guides and angels. It helps to improve intuition and self love. It is a wonderful doorway into living a love & compassion filled life.
REIKI LEVEL 1
In First Degree training, you will be taught the general principles of Reiki and become familiarised with its history and roots. You will also receive Reiki “attunements”. These attunements are focused on opening up the physical, mental & spiritual bodies so as to allow help them attune to the Reiki energy/vibration, therefore raising the students vibration.
Through enjoyable exercises, guided meditations and practice you will learn how to feel energy and be taught how to give a treatment, firstly to yourself and secondly to other people. This part of the course assists the integration of the energy and gives you the tools to become a Reiki Practitioner. We also explore the use of a Pendulum and crystals during treatments.
REIKI LEVEL 2
The Level 2 attunement strengthens Reiki energy. Level 2 empowers the student with the first 3 symbols of Reiki and teaches their meaning. Through these symbols a student is able to request Reiki to guide certain types of subtle energy to a recipient. The student will also learn how to send distance healing across space and time. As in Level 1 training, the class includes theory and practice with time to discuss concepts, meditation exercises and practice time to try Reiki on yourself and others in the class.
We also explore the use of a Pendulum and crystals during treatments. There is space for discussion and classes to take un expected routes depending on the group and what comes up. So you will learn everything included on a normal Reiki 2 course plus a whole load more that will just be spontaneous.
(max group size 6 for all classes)

During this one week fast with just water there will be plenty of time to relax and take it easy, 2 x gentle yoga and meditation classes a day, walks in the surrounding country side and evening documentaries about health, fasting and diet. All of the activities are optional. The group size is maximum 5 people to keep it an intimate and quite experience. Before the fast starts you will be asked to alter your eating and drinking habits in preparation for the fast. The post fast is also very important and you need to make sure you will be in the right situation to support yourself both pre and post fast. Before being accepted on this retreat an interview with the teacher is essential, so as to determine if a week long water fast is the right retreat for you. We are not medical professionals, we are experienced fasters who have felt the health benefits of fasting and want to be able to support others also wanting to experience the benefits of fasting. Fasting in a group environment, where you don't have to do anything, with support from an experienced faster is a great way to succeed in water fasting for 7 days and once you have done it once you know you can do it again in the future on your own.
Water fasting is only beneficial if your body doesn't go into starvation mode, therefore if you are under weight or struggle with eating disorders we can not take you onto this retreat. If you are under weight but wou we can offer you a place on one of our shorter juice fasts
