Self Care In Sobriety

with Janey Lee Grace

Janey Lee Grace, presenter and author of several books on holistic living, leads this break, which focuses on the positive benefits of cutting down or quitting alcohol, without judgement or blame.

Without doubt there’s a trend happening right now for mindful drinking and a large percentage of millennials are choosing not to drink at all. Janey asks, 'how would it be to choose not to drink in our alcohol fuelled society?' We may feel it relaxes us, gives us confidence or makes us feel sassy but actually it’s our mind playing tricks on us.

About Janey Lee Grace

"For anyone questioning whether to book onto Janey Lee Grace’s Selfcare in Sobriety break don’t hesitate. This was the most transformational weekend for us all and Janey is the most wonderful facilitator.

Retreat inclusions

How does it work?

Are you sober curious? Maybe you ditched the drink a while ago and now want to create the life you love without the booze. We look at shifting the mindset around addiction and focusing on selfcare.
You will leave this retreat knowing the truth about alcohol and, perhaps for the first time, see that there is absolute joy in being sober! You will know how to cut down or quit, and how to find support and tools you need to stay on the path.

Together, we learn mindfulness and mindset techniques that can help with relaxation and stress reduction, as well as the best juicing recipes and nutrient dense food and supplements needed to support recovery.

You will also take away simple EFT routines to tap on when triggers arise and we provide worksheets of exercises, resources to find support and a comprehensive list of ‘quit lit’ (memoirs and books on sober living), plus MP3 downloads of guided meditation.

We will look at:
  • The common patterns & habits around alcohol in our culture
  • Our attitudes to it and personality types, asking 'why do we drink?'
  • How to create the life we love without alcohol and intention setting for the year ahead.
  • Basic NLP and EFT - emotional freedom techniques to start to work on the subconscious mind and offer a guided meditation session.
  • ‘Sober inspiration’ and how amazing life can be without drink.
  • How to stop (or cut down) and get sober, facing the triggers and learning how to deal with social situations and relationships. 
  • How to add back the good stuff, with a session on nutrition, and the best foods and supplements to encourage quick recovery.
  • The best alcohol-free drinks to try.

"This retreat was exactly what I needed, to reconnect to my goals and my commitment to selfcare and sobriety, I learnt a huge amount and connected with likeminded people. I now feel so much more highly optimistic, thank you Janey!"

"I wanted to reinforce and re-energise my commitment, this retreat exceed all expectations. I love Janey’s passion and energy and this group!"

"I am leaving this retreat feeling empowered, inspired and confident that I can ‘be the change’  This retreat is a true act of self-care and a brilliant way to connect with others"

"I wanted to learn more ‘sober tools ‘. it was an amazing weekend with a great group.  Janey gave us fantastic tools to help keep us on the sober path and learn to love ourselves."

"Sober, I may be and with over four years under my belt to boot, then why not take on a little extra care, guidance and support I thought? With that in mind I took myself off to Champneys in Tring to attend a sobriety weekend held by Janey Lee Grace under the umbrella of her foundation; The Sober Club. Just two days of down to earth but knowledgeable advice accompanied by a tremendous bunch of people, fantastic food and a tranquil location was one of the most memorable events I’ve been to. We were all at various stages of sobriety yet the support and understanding given to each of us was invaluable. From nutrition to de-stressing techniques and learning of how to re-connect with the ‘self’ took me on a fulfilling and satisfying journey to complement my sober journey. I’ve had many sessions of therapy but felt I achieved more in this course compared to the hours of weekly therapy. Recommended for anyone who needs a hands on hug whether sober, or still in doubt about their addiction."
