“Transformation is an ongoing process that tends to appear ordinary, when, in fact, something extraordinary is taking place.”

– Suzy Ross

Often, a weekend away is all it takes for you to breathe and recalibrate. The House of Love Schock invites you to a weekend of connection, focus and transformation in the heart of the South Downs, in the picturesque town of Arundel from Friday 20th September (evening arrival) to Sunday 22nd September.

For those who struggle to get the time off for longer retreats, we bring you two days of conscious transformation.

You will be invited to:

  • Take a breath at the end of the Summer

  • Set intentions for the final quarter of the year

  • Take time alone to reflect and refocus

  • Take time in community with others who share your desire for growth and transition in their life, whatever that looks like to you.


Take a weekend for you in the heart of the South Downs.

We will be staying at a beautiful B&B in the centre of Arundel, the Arden. With twin rooms and double rooms available, Lucie and Iain have created a home away from home for their guests with beautifully decorated rooms, delicious home cooked meals and a warm welcome.


The activities throughout the weekend are designed to challenge, inspire and surprise you.

Axe throwing

An exercise in power and focus, axe throwing brings out your inner strength and singularity of purpose. It’s a form of meditation once you have gotten the hang of it!

South Downs Walk

See what 100+ lungfuls of fresh air can do for you. Surround yourself with the rolling landscape of the South Downs national park and you will find a renewed perspective and calm. It is a beautiful place to be alone with your thoughts, or to put the world to rights. No pressure, no technology, just nature and putting one foot in front of the other.

Drawing with Awareness class

In this workshop you will be invited to draw with your eyes shut, respond to the breath, draw by touch, and listen to your materials. Engaging in the process rather than the product, you can expect to come away feeling relaxed, awakened, and revitalised.

These activities will be supported by salons led by Gail and nourishing seasonal meals, both homemade dinners by Lucie at the Arden, and slow lunches in selected local restaurants.
