About the Event
STONE COLD SOBER RETREATS - Presents:
A LUXURY, LAKE WINDERMERE 4 DAY RETREAT
WAKE UP TO YOUR TRUE SELF WITH THIS WEEKEND OF TRANSFORMATION
PLEASE BE WARNED this is a magical weekend of life changing an affirming transformation. We don't mess about, we do all we can to make sure you leave feeling inspire, aligned and ready to take on the world. This isn't a relaxing Yoga retreat where you do a bit of yoga and eat great food and chat. These retreats are about real Yoga which is Self-realisation and enlightenment. Yes there will be amazing Jivamukti Yoga Classes and great food and people. But what lights us up more than anything is people arriving, depressed, suicidal, anxious, stiff, unwanted, lost in the world and seeing them leave, allive, passionate, feeling free and unbridled full of love, joy, laughter and happiness with a real thirst for life once more. We focus is helping you release heavy stuck energy and get you stepping into your true power!!
Our intention will be is on UNLEASHING YOUR INNER FIRE, by activating your heart, opening you up to the beauty that is within you and taking a moment to realise who you truly are and what you really want from this incarnation. Are you where you want to be? Are you around the people you want to be around who lift you up? Are you doing what you should be doing in this world? We will be asking you to ask yourself these big questions. Yes it can get emotional and tough and hopefully you will get triggered, but sometimes that’s where we need to go to get to the real jewels of self realisation, enlightenment and bliss. We have to release old habits, old patterns and excuses so we can embrace the truly remarkable individual we are. This retreat is not for everyone, it is disciplined aligned and committed to providing a framework for positive growth.
You can do this, we can all step up our game and you will leave this retreat feeling empowered and motivated to start stepping up and shining more and more light on the world. Sounds deep? Well it will be, but we assure you there will be tons of fun, laughter and craziness in an inclusive and supported environment so you can fully blossom into your magnificent self. FULL 'FUCKING' POWER!!! Oh and there could be swearing, so if you are offended easily, then just choose not to be!
How will we make this magic happen? Well we will be shifting repetitive patterns of behaviour through Yoga, Meditation, Cacao, Cold Water Therapy, Mantra Chanting, Healing, Sharing Circles and Dance, ready for the true you to emerge and go forth like the true warrior you are. BOOM!!
In the idyllic setting of Lake Windermere in The Lake District you will have the chance to take a break from your busy life and really focus on what is important for your own personal growth.
Are you ready? Come on! We are!!!
BY THE END OF THE WEEK YOU WILL BE REPEATING AND BELIEVING OUR MOTTO :-
"I AM POWERFUL BEYOND MEASURE"
The whole retreat is YOGA, this search for Self-realisation and enlightenment. That is why this is a retreat with a difference, every moment of it is Yoga and we get you closer to this with Liam's Jivamukti Yoga Classes but we also include the modalities of Cacao Ceremony, Ecstatic Dance, Cold Water Therapy, Mantra Chanting, Meditation and Breathwork. All designed and curated to get you feeling 'powerful beyond measure" and more closely connected with your own divinity.
Our aim is to WAKE and shake your body, mind and spirit in order to step into your FULL potential. You will leave the retreat feeling empowered, transformed and GLOWING with pure life energy. Seriously you will be, check out our testimonials and reviews on Facebook and Instagram. We are the real fucking deal and we dont mess about.

A BIT ABOUT LIAM BROWNE (Retreat Facilitator & Life Transformer)
Liam is on a mission to wake up the world, connect people to their true essence to live a healthier, happier, love and laughter filled life. Through his own introspection and healing he has gained invaluable experiences and now offers a space to allow others to process their own self–healing - with the aim of making as many people as possible find their superpower and become empowered to be the best, most beautiful version of themselves.
After a traumatic childhood of living in a Battered Wives Institute, being around violence and abuse he was pretty messed up. He had zero positive male role models in his life. He became a drug dealing, womanising, drug-taking raver! Now he is a Yoga Teacher, Author, Life Transformer, expanded consciousness explorer and a healer.
Liam is fun to be around, adventurous and has an amazing lust and love for life. He tries to enjoy each moment and day, filling them with crazy laughter and love. He also gives the most wonderful hugs! He is hard working and always available to those that need him, he never lets anyone down and prides himself on being the support people need.
One thing that is guaranteed is that you will have the most FUN on this retreat and please note that this…….
“ Ain't no trippy dippy, tie-dye wearing, indigenous menstrual blood smearing, yogurt weaving, softly spoken in a calm slow American accent Yoga Retreat. This isn't weird shit with people wearing white being overly polite to each other! This is hardcore Mancunian Yoga!!!! It will blow your socks off, make your jaw drop, make you dance like never before, feel things you never thought possible, breathe in the energy of the room and wonder what the fuck is that. It will keep you talking about it for months. You will step away from the retreat ready to take on the world like the true warrior you are. You will start kicking arse in life becoming the greatest version of yourself. This is euphoric, this is real shit, this is a stone cold sober Yoga Retreat and you will never forget it!!!!"
This is a solid, NO NONSENSE, down to earth spiritual RETREAT. Liam holds the space in an empowered and caring way.

*********HOW TO PREPARE FOR YOUR RETREAT*************
We offer a space for you to release and heal deep shit, emotional wounds and trauma. Therefore to help this process, start looking at all areas of your life. Ask if they are in alignment with your divine self. Take a look at what you want to shift and change. What areas of your life are not serving you. Are you doing what you are supposed to be doing? Do you feel in alignment morally and ethically? Does your heart resonate with all parts of your life?
We will start the retreat clearing away what is no longer in alignment with your highest self. Breaking down barriers so we can access the universal knowledge and wisdom that is within us all. Once we have done this we can start to visualise and manifest what we truly desire from the heart space. We will have made space for greatness. We will then be open to bring in our highest purpose and desires and fully step into our power.
The best preparation for the retreat would be to start a vegan diet, meditate at least once a day, practice yoga at least once a day and detox from technology and toxic people as much as possible. You are starting a clearing process so why not give yourself a head start.
We will be intermittent fasting during the week so if possible start to detox the body by drinking hot lemon and water in the morning and not eating until around 10:30/11 every day. This will give your body the best possible chance to work at its optimum level. Don’t worry there is always plenty of food and no one ever gets hungry on one of our retreats. We are people of abundance so anything extra you need please let us know immediately.
