The Little Retreat that makes a Big Difference

Finca Colina continues as a place of “retreat” for solo guests, families or groups of friends where you can be as lazy or as active as you want. You can sleep all day, read all day, walk, paint, write, cycle, have a consultation or do a workshop…. It’s completely up to you. Space and time is all yours from the minute you walk through our gates until you leave.

Introduction to Bach Flower Remedies

Dates (To be arranged)

The course

This course, facilitated by Terry Burke BFRP is about a complete system of 38 remedies which balance emotions and treat negative mental states. It is also about the man who discovered them, Dr Edward Bach, and his unique approach to healing. It is a course in the remedies and their use, and as such helps to realise one of Dr Bach’s dearest wishes, that people should learn how to take control of their own health.

This course is suitable for beginners and near-beginners and provides the building blocks that people need if they are to start discovering the remedies for themselves. It assumes no knowledge, but in the week covers all 38 Bach Flower Remedies and the states of mind and emotions that they can be used to help. The aim is to provide enough information and practical exercises to enable anyone to gain a comprehensive grasp of Dr Bach’s work.

After attending this course, participants should be able to help themselves, their friends and their relations, and will be well prepared for any further training in the use of the remedies that they intend to undertake.

What you need before you start

As mentioned in the previous paragraphs, you do not need to know anything about Dr Bach’s work to participate on this course, you just need an open mind and a desire to learn and a basic curiosity about who you are and how you feel. This course is really all about you.

Accommodation in en suite bed rooms with single beds
All workshops and consultations.

  • Tailor-made retreats.- There are many options for your "tailor- made retreat". Begin with the basic self catering cost then add on as you like. Your retreat could be for a couple of days or for a week or longer. You may want a solo retreat or to be with a group of two or more.

An example - you book a week.The room will cost 375€. You may hire a car or we do airport transfer for 70€ return trip.We can provide some or all of your meals.You can give us a shopping list or we can take you shopping so that you can be completely independent while you are here.

If you want us to provide meals breakfasts cost 5€ each. So that you can have breakfast as early or as late as you want we will leave a selection each day, choices - tea, coffee, cheese, eggs, smoked salmon, melon, cereals, bread for toast etc. in the casita kitchen. You won't go hungry!

We can provide lunches from 7€ and evening meals from 12€ (2 courses with wine)You may take these in the casita sitting/dining room or terrace. If you'd like to eat your evening meal with us you're welcome in our courtyard or dining room as long as you don't mind the company of our pets. Wherever possible we use local organic produce in our meals.

You may choose to spend your retreat walking, swimming, bird watching, reading or just lounging by the pool letting the warm Spanish sun fill you with a sense of well being. If you feel like being pampered we offer full body massage from a qualified aromatherapist for 40€ or you may prefer reflexology or a foot massage.

If you would like to have life coaching or a Bach Flower consultation you would add 30€ per hour session to your basic package. If you would like some "brain activity" you may choose to do a two or three day homeopathy or Bach workshop. How about a Spanish cookery lesson?.. and you get to eat what you cook! Or we'll cook a paella for you and give you our recipe to take home.

When you arrive at Finca Colina you will find an information file. If you see an excursion you'd like, we'll take you. We offer a "taxi service" to the local town of Almogia.Your tailor-made retreat allows you to spend as much time in the mountains as you want or the opportunity to mix and match so you have some days of tranquility and some days of activity.

At the end of the day you may want to wander to the bar ... And as the sun sets cosy in and light the wood burners. Snuggle up with one of the books or DVDs from our small library. Listen to music or play one of the board games in the casita. Before bed take a stroll in the garden under a breathtaking canvas of stars and planets. With no light pollution you’ll be amazed by the spectacle that awaits you.

Enjoying the atmosphere.
