A transformational retreat

HotHouse invites you to a women’s retreat crafted to evoke and cultivate the power of being a woman. This transformational experience is facilitated by an all-female team of local and international expertise, including three-time Nobel Peace Prize nominee Scilla Elworthy. Together we’ll guide you on a four-day journey into the natural world, aligning your inner wisdom and power with the purpose of becoming a courageous and authentic leader and change-agent.

'I feel completely rejuvenated and clear about my purpose... What an amazing course.' 
Previous HotHouse participant

This programme, set within the stunning landscapes of the Eden Project, provides a remarkable setting in which to connect deeply with yourself and nature. It is an unrivalled place to learn, from the treetop canopy of the vast indoor rainforest to the citrus groves of the Mediterranean – you’ll be immersed in a unique global venue.  

You will experience

  • Transformation: Harnessing inner power for outer transformation by finding your authentic voice
  • Connection: By exploring the natural world at Eden, you will connect with your inner nature
  • Commonality: As womankind there is more that unites us than what separates us, encouraging us to recognise the power of being a woman, together

Who is it for?  

Evoking the Power of Woman has been carefully crafted for influential women who see themselves, or are seen by others, as leaders and change agents. Those chosen will wish to harness their personal power to become more authentic, courageous, and effective within their communities, organisations, and spheres of influence. 

We expect this special programme to be very popular, so will assemble participants with rich stories to share from diverse backgrounds and a range of sectors.
