About BusyBuddha Retreats

OUR STORY

Ever feel like you never get a minute’s peace?
 
Constantly surrounded by people making demands on your time; your family, your friends, your partner, your colleagues?
 
Don’t worry; you aren’t alone. The demands of modern day life can be overwhelming; running a firm, working a highly pressurised and demanding job, focusing on your career and 'climbing the ladder', taking care of your home and your family, participating in social commitments.

Whatever your lifestyle demands, you need to make sure you don’t burn out. But, all too often, we do not make time for ourselves. According to a report published by the HSE in November 2020 a staggering 17.9 million working days were lost by UK businesses in 2019/20. This involved around 828,000 workers who took time off due to work-related stress, depression or anxiety.
 

Taking time for yourself is vital.
 
We often prioritise everyone else’s needs before our own because we don’t want to seem selfish or feel guilty but that’s not healthy.  If you don’t prioritise “me” time then you’ll feel more exhausted, more run down and more rushed. Being constantly under pressure will increase your stress levels and eventually you burn out.  
 
Take time out to unwind, recharge your batteries and bring your stress levels down. More importantly, become equipped with the tools to properly care for yourself and manage your wellbeing long after the retreat has finished...

WHY WAS THE BUSYBUDDHA CREATED

We understand that the hustle and bustle of working life is leaving so many professionals feeling disconnected, a sense of dissatisfaction (despite often being 'successful') and not feeling much gratitude for all the wonderful things that surround us everyday. ​

Professionals and corporates are suffering with burnout, anxiety, and are generally not equipped with the tools to manage their self care regime amongst all the pressure, work deadlines and social commitments. It can all become very overwhelming. 

​The founder of The BusyBuddha realised this, and experienced first hand the effects of not taking time for yourself and how this can be really detrimental to your wellbeing, your work and your personal relationships.
 
With that in mind, and having searched for mindfulness and wellbeing retreats, the founder of BusyBuddha could not find somewhere that put a non-secular spin on the benefits of yoga and meditation, and which would really enhance and improve the busy professionals way of living.
 
This is when she understood that you needed a space where you could be unapologetically you.  And so The BusyBuddha weekend retreats and experience days were created to provide just that.

Fit your own oxygen mask first. You're no use to anyone if you're running on empty. Caring for yourself first is often the best thing you can do, in order to help others.

 

It isn't selfish, or egocentric. Just really good advice.

You will be surrounded by mentors, teachers and guests who understand you and your way of living - our bespoke retreats are made by professionals, for professionals.

We offer a stay in luxury accommodation whilst still experiencing the grounding and balance that both meditation and yoga can bring. Whilst mindfulness and mental fitness are at the heart of our retreats, it is delivered in a non-secular, modern-day way, that relates to you and your lifestyle. 
You will also experience executive coaching, guest speakers and expert workshops that are adapted to your needs as a busy professional, corporate or business executive. 
Our retreats are built on our own community of professionals, who understand one another and, together, can take the time to disconnect, breathe, and reconnect. 

We offer a program especially made for you, where you can practice yoga, meditation and mindfulness with the help of our BusyBuddha team, and feel truly relaxed in the comfort and safety of like minded individuals. 

WHAT IS THE BUSYBUDDHA EXPERIENCE

These retreats are just what I have been looking for, and needed.  Having been a high flying professional for many years I look for a touch of luxury with complete relaxation and this is exactly what I've found.
