Falling in LOVE A one day retreat to fall in LOVE with life again


Frederique Bicker & Donna Lancaster were ‘partners in crime’ for 5 years working together to deliver the highly praised personal development programme called The Bridge Retreat. Since The Bridge closed in the pandemic, they have continued to work and play together as often as they can, as both colleagues and friends.

This one-day workshop is a beautiful blend of their individual and collective skills and passions and offers a much needed light-filled focus for those feeling a sense of heaviness or burdened by their individual life challenges.



‘Together in this workshop we will create a safe and loving space to activate a Love connection with yourself, others, and Life itself. We will guide you into deep heart opening experiences, teaching you how to consciously slow down and shift from the intellect into the body, from head to heart. Together we will share, move, open up, laugh, maybe cry and expand into Love as a way of being.’

The day will include:

  • A Welcome ceremony for full integration and acceptance of all that you are.
  • • A deeper understanding of how Love can be activated.
  • • Heart opening meditation and heart expanding visualisation.
  • • Movement and sound to support you to live beyond the mind and drop into your heart & soul.
  • • Rituals to deepen the connection with yourself, each other and that which is ‘bigger than all of us’.
  • • A safe space to share and explore what it truly means to live and be the LOVE that you really are.

This one day retreat will blow some fresh air through your heart, and you will leave feeling refreshed, energised, connected and most of all aligned with the source of LOVE itself.

Come join us!
