Here for your journey
Full Circle Experiences is a company dedicated to providing unique and transformative experiences that promote a deeper connection with oneself, others, and the natural world. We harness the numinous spirit of animals and nature in spaces of outstanding natural beauty. We believe that by immersing ourselves in the beauty of the environment and engaging in wellness practices, we can cultivate a more connected and fulfilling life.
Our offerings include horse connection and meditation sessions, where participants have the opportunity to connect with these majestic animals and find inner peace through guided meditation. Through this experience, individuals can develop a deeper understanding of themselves and their relationship with nature.
We also offer rejuvenating massage services that aim to restore balance and harmony to the body, mind, and spirit. Our skilled therapists use a combination of techniques to release tension, promote relaxation, and enhance overall well-being.
For those seeking a more adventurous experience, we organize wild woman retreats that celebrate the power and wisdom of women. These retreats provide a safe and nurturing space for women to reconnect with their authentic selves, explore their passions, and form meaningful connections with like-minded individuals.
In addition, we offer foraging activities and guided walks that allow participants to explore the natural world and learn about the abundance of edible plants and herbs that surround us. These activities not only provide a deeper appreciation for the environment but also empower individuals to incorporate sustainable practices into their daily lives.
At Full Circle Experiences, we believe that by immersing ourselves in the wild beauty of the environment and engaging in wellness practices, we can cultivate a more connected and fulfilling life. Join us on this journey of self-discovery, healing, and transformation.

Forever bonded to each other, to nature and definitely to horses.

The second I saw this retreat advertised, I signed up for it immediatly inspite of not having ridden a horse since childhood!
And I wasn't disappointed - this was a truly extraordinary retreat, created with originality, thought and care by Katherine and Ben.
The retreat is located in a stunning, unspoilt and undiscovered corner of Bosnia with breath taking vistas.
The program was a perfect mix of activity and rest. Yoga first thing made for the best start, delicious food, and then lots of time bonding. Was a childhood dream to own my own horse, and so was very rich getting to know grumpy Ella over the course of the week.

Lovely long weekend with loads of different activities; yoga, wild swimming, breathing techniques, camp fires and of course the beautiful meditation with horses. The yurt was super cosy, well appointed and the setting just stunning. Katherine made us all feel welcome and at home and skillfully brought us together as a group. The food was healthy, delicious and and were more than happy to cater to my additional dietary requirements. Had a really relaxing time with like minded women who I'm still in touch with. Thanks for everything x
