Join the OYA team for a weekend away at Bore Place, 500 acres of beautiful fully organic farmland near Sevenoaks in Kent. The retreat will include yoga, mindfulness, activities, vegan meals as well as leisure for exploring, resting and relaxing.
During the summer months we are often most willing to slow down and take things in. At this retreat, we will provide a space for you to do just that. This retreat is for Black women and women of colour.
In the presence of sisterhood, you will have the opportunity to move and to be still, to read, write and sing, to talk and to listen. This weekend is perfect for you if you desire a short weekend getaway, at which you can enjoy a slower pace and dedicated time for simply getting back to you.
The exact retreat schedule is subject to change and will be released to registered guests closer to the date.
There will be a number of talks and treatments on offer over the course of the weekend. We will update the website with details shortly.
NEW ::: Grounded Movement taught by Shiggi! It’s a free-form movement conversation between our “selves”, our bodies, our nature and each other. Shiggi has taken a fusion of African rooted martial arts – Capoeira, the easily accessible teachings of French created MovNat, alongside her own influences from living and growing up in Kenya to create the Kusongea workshop accessible and nurturing to all who attend.
NEW ::: Kemetic yoga taught by Amani! Egyptian yoga originates from Ancient Kemet, now known as Egypt. It is a restorative system which has unique postures and principles. It combines physical movement, deep breathing and meditation to help achieve balance, peace, order and discipline which is known as Maat.
NEW ::: Reiki treatments with Jaha Browne. She will be offering 25-minute Reiki sessions using crystals and a Tibetan singing bowl to realign your chakras and promote healing.
Treatments will range from deep-tissue massage to Reiki. In the registration form you can indicate if you would like to book a treatment, so that our therapists can be in touch with you directly. Treatment costs are not included in the retreat package price.
Single, twin, and triple occupancy available. Each room is simply decorated. There are shared bath- and shower rooms throughout. One set of bedding and sheets are provided.
The retreat is fully-catered with vegan and wheat-free delights. On Friday evening a light dinner will be served. On Saturday and Sunday mornings breakfast will be offered after the meditation session. On Saturday, a filling and warm lunch will be served and a light and healthy dinner. On Sunday, guests will receive a light lunch before departing for their journey home.
Arrivals are welcome from 4:00pm on Friday, 18 August. We ask that all guests arrive by 6:00pm so that we can begin the program punctually with a welcome at 6:30pm. On Sunday the 20th all guests should depart by 3pm.

My heart sank when I spotted them. And suddenly the small gift shop felt even smaller and tight as if all of the air has been sucked out of it when I inwardly gasped. I remained cool though and, in Swedish, asked my Swede to take a picture of the Gollywogs while I continued my I’m just looking lap around the store.
Maybe it was my imagination but it felt like I was invisible, at least no one wanted to let me pass easily as I slinked around the shoppers looking at rows and rows of British beach pier souvenir junk.
So what do you do when they try to let the Gollywogs get you down? ou hold your head up high and take in the beauty that is around you. And then you go home and blog about it.

Botany was founded in 2014 by Angela Maynard, after a 12-year career in Product Development for various British brands. Botany is an independent plant & lifestyle store situated on Chatsworth Road in the heart of Hackney’s creative community. Her shop’s ethos: We believe that good, useful, ethical design and considered surroundings make for a beautiful and balanced life.
Angela Maynard grew up in a flat in central London.
“We rarely went on trips to the countryside. I spent a lot of time in Regent’s Park after school. I was also surrounded by plants because of my grandmother. She was Greek Cypriot and she lived in a tiny, tiny flat. She used to have plants outside and inside, she’d take care of the little garden in our square. It was very important to her.”
