Spiritual Retreats With Your Dog

Our unique Practitioner Retreats

Alongside the home-study course a Retreat is the most beautiful way to put what you are learning into practice. Achieve your practitioner certificate in a calm, peaceful environment, guided by Canine Flow founder and master practitioners.

Relax & Learn on our Retreats!

Our retreat centre is nestled in the rolling hills of the stunning Welsh countryside. Named after a Celtic goddess of transformation, it's the perfect location to connect with the energies of this ancient land.
Not only do you learn to practice Canine Flow but you will relax, unwind and have the space and freedom to disconnect from the stresses of the world.
Deepen your understanding of Canine Flow and find peace and tranquillity together, freeing your energy to grow in abundance and joy.

Space to roam, space to play and space to feel safe, calm and peaceful.
The dogs are the heart of this retreat, and we come together to focus on them. They are given time and space with no pressure to participate—observed by Canine Flow founder Caroline Griffith.
Indulge in delicious, soul-nourishing vegan food to honour all animals who may energetically be part of your retreat. Relax in our cosy, communal living space, and rest in your own room (free to snuggle with your pooch on the bed).
Join Canine Flow in 2024 to find peace with your dog and gain your practitioners certificate in the most wonderful setting.

What to Expect

  • This is a safe space. There are no expectations on you or your dogs; each retreat is divinely guided by the dogs and their guardians.
  • The retreat is a place to find your tribe, in a world where your beliefs and insight into the world may not be fully understood. Here, we see your energy and feel your joy and abundance together.
  • Your dog is free to play off-lead in a safe environment, feeling their freedom and grounding themselves fully.
  • Leave feeling rejuvenated with new friends and a sense of hope that your connection with your dog is for a higher purpose.

More than just human and pet, your spiritual connection and purpose are intertwined. You are here for a reason—your dog is your guide. You are his guardian; you understand his motivations and can now live a calmer, more purposeful life together.
