25th – 28th october  2024


What if you could deepen and simplify your understanding of the Three Principles, so you can make an even bigger impact in transforming your life and the lives of your clients with more ease and less effort?

You’re invited to a special retreat with Mark Howard, PhD

Together, we will take a deep dive into the true nature of what it really means to be an impactful coach and health practitioner. We’ll co-create a very practical, immersive and meaningful conversation that will bring fresh perspectives and inspired action.

If you can relate to any of the following, then this event is for you.

Would you like more clarity and certainty about how life works, so you can live with more ease, peace, love and understanding? 

Happiness, love and understanding exists in you now.  The only thing in the way of living in these feelings is thinking about yourself. We’ll explore how you can be free of thinking so much about yourself to allow these beautiful feelings to emerge.


Do you sometimes wish you could have more impact with clients, so you can make an even bigger difference in people’s lives, more of the time? 

It’s wonderful when at the end of the day, you can put your feet up knowing you have touched the hearts of your clients and helped them find their own vitality, wisdom and clarity. We’ll explore how you can enjoy more connection and impact with clients.


Would you like to easily identify and avoid the common pitfalls in sharing the Principles and working with clients more effectively? 

Have you ever ended a conversation or session feeling like your clients or friends needed more or that maybe you missed an opportunity to teach? Or perhaps you lost connection with them?  We’ll explore the simple adjustments that make it easy to re-connect and find the teachable moment, in the moment.


Do you ever find yourself holding back or waiting to know more about the Principles before you feel ready to teach or take action? 

Are you taking the next ‘3P’ course or listening to another 3P podcast or video so you can finally feel like you know enough to share the principles? If so, then it’s time to feel with certainty that you do know enough to share. You’re ready now and we’ll show you why that’s true.

The promise of this event:

    • Enjoy a deeper, simpler understanding of the human operating principles to free your mind so you can more effortlessly connect and relate to others.
    • Find that you can instantly access the ever-present source of peace, clarity and wisdom that you carry with you to benefit your own life and those around you.
    • Really hear what’s going on for people so that you can share or teach with increasing relevance and impact.
    • Recognise the common pitfalls that confront ‘3 Principles’ practitioners and shed light on any blindspots so they no longer hold you back.
    • Experience absolute certainty that you know enough about the Principles and feel inspired and ready to go out and share more widely with those people you’d love to serve and support.

    And with the added bonus of being in sunny Spain you could also combine the retreat with a holiday. We have negotiated a fabulous room rate for you, which includes meals at the hotel

    Hotel Rober Palas***

    The venue is situated a 10 minute walk from the beach and a 2 minute walk to shops, cafés and restaurants. And only 10 minutes from the start of the popular scenic walk to the lighthouse.  

    A few of the hotel features include:

    • Pool
    • Bar/cafeteria
    • Safes

    Beautiful Albir!

    Situated in a lovely corner of the Costa Blanca, on the coast, and with all the amenities of a small, quiet, yet lively town, Albir is the ideal location for the retreat.  Everything you could need to make this a relaxing, enjoyable and memorable experience can be found within walking distance including the beach, cafes, bars and restaurants, supermarket and a wide variety of shops.

    Albir’s beach is called “Playa de Racó de l’Albir” and has received the coveted European Union Blue Ribbon award, annually since 2001 – not a bad recommendation!

    A favourite route to walk in the nature park is the ‘Faro’ trail which leads to a lighthouse. If you are lucky you may catch a glimpse of a dolphin or two as you look down to the sea from the lighthouse. The beginning of the trail is only a 10 minute walk from the hotel venue.
