About The Wee Retreat CIC
The Wee Retreat is a not-for-profit, Community Interest Company. In essence, we are
a meditation & well-being centre offering a wide range of wellbeing courses & retreats
to increase personal awareness & a sense of peace.
Our social mission is to create a culture where self-care is as normal/ordinary as
brushing your teeth. We believe that if everyone looks after themselves properly, they
will be happier within themselves and the world will be a happier place.
We aim to achieve this by:
• Making wee retreats as accessible as possible
• Partnering with other organisations who work with vulnerable members of our
society to support them in supporting their communities well-being
• Educating people in the importance of self-care
• Reducing stigma/barriers to self-care
The Wee Retreat CIC have been supporting a wide variety of well-being practitioners
deliver classes and workshops at our centre since we opened and we would like to
support them even more with a new online membership service just for them.
This new service, Nurture & Grow, has been developed in response to the pandemic
which has very much affected wellbeing practitioners livelihoods. We see a need for
this service well beyond this though and hope that this becomes a main strand of our
delivery of service.
This service will provide space for well-being practitioners to connect and collaborate
on one level and grow their business on another.
