    Learn to create a reality as if you'd never been addicted

    Are you struggling with an addiction that threatens to spiral out of control if you do not address the situation right now? Perhaps you are successfully holding down your job, keeping your family together and just about keeping on top of your health, but feel this balancing act is in danger of imploding? If booze or recreational drugs are starting to become a crutch that you are relying on to get through the day, then the Quantum Sobriety Retreat has been created for you.

    Full Details

    This is the perfect opportunity to take your first steps outside of your usual patterns and coping strategies, and experience what life could be like free of unhealthy addictions.

    The program has been carefully structured to support and empower with emphasis on nutrition, coaching, fasting, and supplementation as well as a daily yoga and meditation classes. Learn tips and techniques that you can take home with you to implement into your daily life, and make permanent changes.

    You will experience a contemporary luxury boutique hotel setting with a welcoming homely vibe. Enjoy blazing open fires, lie ins in your kingsize bed, and walks around the gardens and lake.

    The house has had visits from Gandhi, Sir Winston Churchill, the King of Norway and other international figures within it’s interesting history, and holds a positive and healing energy.

    Follow Up Mini-Retreats

    To sustain sobriety we have our ‘top-up’ mini-retreats for past attendees of the program to come back for a short 2 day, 2 night mini-retreat, to stay on track and ‘top themselves up’. The pressures of being at home, and into your ‘reality’ can sometimes suck you back towards the lure of addiction. So for this reason we want to offer continued support after the full program has been completed.

    Ongoing Support

    Once the five day program has been completed you become a member of a secret Facebook group where you can interact with others that have also been through the course. Designed for members to support each other and have ‘somewhere to go’ if feeling low or in need of a ‘chat’ with someone that knows what they are going through. The whole team are also members and can guide and support when needed.

    Online Course

    This program is now available online too so it really doesn’t matter where in the world you are, you can still get Quantum Sobriety support. This ever growing community is groundbreaking; supporting each other and beginning to believe that they are capable of anything; including freedom.

    Here is what a recent retreatant had to say about the Quantum Sobriety program:

    “Dear Jo, Dom, Sophie, Olivier, Leanne, Anni, Carol and Paul, I had the pleasure of having this amazing retreat journey all to myself this week and I can’t thank you ALL enough for how much love and light you have brought into my heart. I feel emotional writing this. I came here battling a 10 year substance abuse and a 3 year black hole of addiction. I leave with a calm mind, strength in my soul, love in my heart and a lifetime of future. Thank you”

    Here is what a previous retreatant had to say about the Quantum Sobriety program:
    “This was one of the hardest but rewarding decisions I have ever made, but very glad I did, as the content of my time spent at the Retreat has changed my life for the better and for those around me. I now understand what is meant by addiction and have the tools to handle mine. My time spent with you and your team of experts, in a friendly, calm and positive energy has made an enormous difference.  My highlight of the week was knowing I had gained the strength and knowledge to be able to carry on and create a better future.
    I’d like to say thanks Jo to you and your team for all your support and follow up on my well being. Love to you all.

    Here is what another previous retreatant had to say about the Quantum Sobriety program:
    “I can’t really put into words how grateful i am for what you have taught me. Jo is so inspiring, down to earth and focused. She is living proof that you can overcome addiction and create an amazing life. This experience has been so healing thanks for everything!”

    And here is the testimonial from the daughter of one of our participants:
    “From the moment I spoke to Jo (following a chance meeting at a two day conference) I had the feeling that she would be perfect to support my father in gaining insight into his alcohol addiction.  We arranged to meet her at her stunning retreat venue and as I suspected, Dad and Jo got on brilliantly and the house was so restful, I was able to tap into the sense of calm I felt there long after we left.  Having been in Dad’s situation and come out the other side, Jo is the perfect person to share the techniques she has used to kick her addictions and feel excited about life once more.  The house is the perfect peaceful setting in which to unplug and get connected to what’s really important in life.  I have some understanding of what occurred during the five days Dad was in the company of Jo, her husband and her wonderful team of healers, the rest is beyond words and nothing short of a miracle.  I dropped off a man who was exhausted, confused, frustrated and addicted to alcohol and all the wrong foods and thought patterns.  I collected my father; the strong, focused and connected man I remembered from childhood.  None of us knew what to expect, Dad included, and I am in awe of his bravery in taking this enormous step to chance his life after 20 years addicted to alcohol.  The result is more than any of us dared to dream of:  he has been dry for three weeks now and his resolve in embracing his new lifestyle is inspirational.  Jo, we cannot thank you enough.  You have given us back the man we love so dearly and that is priceless.  For anyone wondering if they should book a space on one of Jo’s retreats for addicts, DO IT:  there is your life before this retreat and your life afterwards.”


    Creator of Quantum Sobriety™ program

    Your host and creator of the program is Jo De Rosa, who has struggled through addictions to alcohol and drugs over the past 25 years. Jo changed her lifestyle and abolished negative addictions with the help of yoga, meditation, coaching and nutrition, and is excited to share all that she has learnt with the participants who have decided that today is the day to make a stand to leave behind limitation, and embrace life to the full.
    Jo says, “It is hard when you are caught up in the middle of an addiction to see how it could be on the other side. This five day program will do just that, and allow the retreatant a glimpse of themselves without the burden of having to conform to what they have always done, what society expects of them, or have just fallen into. We all have the potential for happiness, success and inner peace and this retreat will give you some insight into your own unlimited potential.”

    The retreat is open to just five participants to ensure exclusivity
    En suite rooms are stylish and comfortable, and the investment for this five day retreat starts at £2,497 inclusive and includes membership to the online programme for 12 months.
     The therapies and treatments included in the programme are listed below.

    Passion for Life Psychotherapist & Coach

    BSc. (Hons) Psychology & Sociology

    Biodynamic Psychotherapist (MGBII)

    Hello there,

    My name is Anni, and it’s a privilege to be part of the HEAL Team here at Inner Guidance.

    I work as a Biodynamic Psychotherapist, Counsellor and Passion for Life Coach. I have also worked in business for both large corporations and smaller entrepreneurial concerns.

    The Biodynamic work incorporates your body AND your mind. If there is something on your mind, it could be affecting you physically, and if you’re in physical discomfort, it may be affecting your thoughts, moods and your general appetite for life.   It is based on the main principle that the psyche’s true potential arises from the alignment of the body, mind and spirit. Treatment includes one to one counselling which can incorporate Biodynamic massage as an aid to the psychotherapeutic process.

    The Biodynamic approach aims to bring you relief from symptoms of pain and illness and return you to a state of homeostasis (or steady state). This in turn has the potential to lead to self-regulation, which supports the processes of creative, cognitive, emotional, spiritual health and wellbeing. You can start to feel fantastic J.

    So what happens in a Biodynamic Session?

    Every individual is different, unique and wonderful in their own way. There is no prescriptive way to treat you other than working with whatever you bring to your session. It’s my job to provide an environment in which you can feel safe. If you want to come and talk that’s fine. You may find that it’s not until you start talking in this safe, therapeutic space that you utter words you may never have spoken before. For example, what about all the things you never said or were never allowed to say? What have you been holding back, and what back problems have arisen because of it? How are your shoulders? Do you carry the weight of the world on them? Recurrent chest infections? What is it that you really want to get off your chest? Are you anxious, tense, stressed or depressed?

    Any psychological distress can have an impact on your physical body. This is exactly what the Biodynamic massage methods were developed for: to bring you relief from painful symptoms and support you to become conscious of how these symptoms may be related to your behaviour (thoughts, belief systems, relationships etc). When you know what’s going on you can make it better.

    I have worked with cancer patients and their friends and families; blind and partially sighted people, athletes, people recovering from a stroke; those with eating disorders; addictions, depression and other related conditions.

    On a personal note, friends and family are hugely important to me, as is laughter, great food, fitness and a love of the outdoors. Literature and poetry are also essential companions.

    I love to sing and make music and enjoy hearing and telling a good joke.

    Like most of us I have been touched by various personal challenges, but I believe it’s not the things that happen to us that determine how we stand in the world, but how we deal with them that truly matters. It’s that ability to self-regulate which can enable you to return to homeostasis (steady state) and live a rich and full life.  The Biodynamic approach embraces all of you … body, mind, spirit and can equip you with some easy tools to get the best out of your life.
