Located down a private drive and situated in a beautiful setting with glorious views, our home for the weekend: Sandbanks will provide us with a very nourishing and accommodating atmosphere. In an area of "Outstanding Natural Beauty" it is the perfect location for exploring gardens, vineyards and National Trust properties. Robertsbridge and Brightling stations are within 2.4 miles and Bodiam Castle just over 4 miles. The historic town of Battle is 3 miles away and the coast just 9 miles. This is the beginning of our 'Sacred Heart Retreat' now are you ready to hear more...?

When was the last time you made time for YOU? The beautiful YOU that exists when your eyes are closed and noone is watching? The YOU that feels more, senses more, knows more and ALWAYS wants whats BEST for you?Hmmm not sure?Usually we dont because the MIND gets in the way!! It tells us to DO more BE more... tells us that who we are right now is not enough and that if we dont hurry we will all get lost behind as old news....Hmmm how does THAT make you feel? Inadequate? Unloveable? Fearful? Ok! What are YOU going to do about it?Allow your mind to take over and literally keep you running your entire life... or are you finally ready to SHOUT STOPPPPPPP!! With all your might and strength!!! I KNOW YOU deserve this break away from everyday madness of everyday mindstuff!!! Why??? Because YOU are an incredible human being with HUGE big beautiful heart and a wonderful soul that are both just waiting to BRING YOU HOME.Why me you think? Because as YOU decided to continue reading these lines something inside you has already started to shift and open up.... something inside you is HUNGRY for change and for LOVE.

Allow these gentle words to ease your mind and FEEL into how it makes your body relax... simply repeat after me:“What if being KIND could change everything”.... “What if being KIND could change everything”.... keep going.... thats it feel your shoulders relaxing.... “What if being KIND could change everything”.... notice how your heart softens and your belly gently lets go of worries and tension....

From my heart right into YOURS I wish you could see what I see; how magnificent YOU ARE!!! How you were born magnificent and how you will die magnificent just by BEING YOU!!!

How does it feel as you hear me say these words? Yes Im speaking to YOU directly!!!
You are ready to make this next BIG step my love, you were born ready and NOW is YOUR time to let go of all those old voices telling you to think small and play it safe. Telling you that you are nothing but a tiny person and that you shouldnt shine your light too brightly!!! 
If you have continued to read ALL this way down now I KNOW you are urging to make this transformation. I KNOW deep in my heart of hearts that YOU are being called from your higher self/soul self/the divine/God/the universe. Whatever name you want to call it. The point is:in a persons life there comes a point when we have the power to transform ALL that is no longer serving us. This point is now.
Come to shift away the old and embrace YOUR RADIANT TRUE SELF!!!

I love you, have always loved you and will always love you. Dear one xxxxx

Nourishing Vegan Soul Food by Melanie Hanspall

Several years ago, I moved back to Cambridge after living in London. I’d had enough of the long hours and commuting, plus I never seemed to have enough time to myself. The fast pace of living and working in London, often left me feeling exhausted, and at times, not looking after myself as well as I probably should have. This resulted in having to have a minor operation, which made me re-evaluate my lifestyle and diet.

I decided that I needed a change in my life, the first of which was to make plans to move back to Cambridge to be near my family again. This has allowed me to live a slower pace of life which enabled me to make changes to my health and fitness. I've been practicing pilates, yoga and love cycling, which is an ideal way to get around Cambridge!

I have always been interested in healthy eating and have a passion for cooking, something that was passed onto me from my parents, who are both amazing cooks! I believe that you can make healthy, balanced meals on any budget, it just takes a little bit of time and planning.

After researching different colleges, I found the Blackford centre and having read the amazing testimonials from students that had graduated, I applied to do a diploma in Nutrition level 4 for which I received a distinction grade. Since graduating, I have been helping clients to achieve a well-balanced diet together with an exercise and nutrition plan to help them prevent illnesses which arise from poor diet and lack of exercise.

​I attend courses and workshops at CNM college (college of naturopathic medicine) in London, as I believe it's important to keep learning and looking at different approaches towards nutrition. 

Over the past four years I have been working with local companies in Cambridge: ARM, Cambridge Assessment, Astra Zeneca, Medimmune and Cambridge University Press within their wellbeing departments which I really enjoy and would like to work with more local companies advising staff on nutrition.
