Ockenden Manor Hotel & Spa Launches ‘Full Moon & Fabulous’ Retreats in Sussex

Spirituality with a dose of serious luxury – taking place during 2022’s full moon phases, Ockenden Manor Hotel & Spa in West Sussex is launching a series of new wellness retreats designed to help reconnect with nature and find balance



Designed to rebalance, restore and rejuvenate, head to West Sussex for Ockenden Manor Hotel & Spa‘s new 2-night ‘Full Moon & Fabulous’ retreats this summer and autumn. It’s no secret that a full moon is often viewed as a time to be receptive, to take the light and awareness of spirit, leading to clarity and calm – the reason this happens is because the light from the full moon energetically sheds light on our emotions and supports them in rising to the surface.

To harness this energy, the Sussex-based hotel has launched a series of 2-night ‘Full Moon & Fabulous’ retreats, aimed at connecting with nature and re-balancing during the full moon periods for the rest of the year until November. Guests are invited to head to the heart of the South Downs National Park (a dark sky reserve, one of only 18 in the world) for the new wellness-led experiences.



Specially created by Helena Skoog, a yoga teacher and forest bathing guide, Helena was born and raised in the forests of Sweden and has spent the last six years living off-grid in ancient forestry in Sussex.  Helena helps individuals and groups increase their sensitivity to the sights, sounds, smells, tastes, and textures of the woods, leading to a feeling of calm, contentment, and rejuvenation.

Helena’s ‘Full Moon & Fabulous’ retreats embrace love, wisdom, and compassion, enabling everyone to find inner peace and understanding, while incorporating the five elements and the five senses to rebalance and reflect.



Of course, there’s not a camping tent in sight. Those attending the upcoming retreats will stay in a beautiful rooftop Spa Suite for two nights (with a large terrace perfect for star-gazing), whilst enjoying breakfast, lunch and one five-course dinner. The retreat will feature daily yoga sessions; Forest Bathing, Evening Polestar meditation, Isopod flotation session, Aroma massage, full use of the spa and swimming pool and an essential oils gift set. 

There are four ‘Full Moon & Fabulous Retreats’ taking place for over the rest of the year: Tuesday 12th July to Thursday 14th July 2022; Thursday 11th August to Saturday 13th August 2022; Friday 9th September to Sunday 11th September 2022; Saturday 8th October to Monday 10th October 2022.
