PRLog - Jan. 14, 2015 - LOS ANGELES -- A Tour of England Introverts Won’t Shy Away From
(Los Angeles, CA) – Far from the rambunctious energy of many travel tours, one 10 day retreat to England in May 2015 is targeted to a market often overlooked by the travel industry: introverts.
The first ever “Sacred Introvert Retreat Tour” takes place May 1 – 10 to the “Kingdom of Wessex” region of England and offers a gentle, introspective way for travelers to take part in a group setting.
Led by Sacred Introvert founder Lisa Avebury, a self-described “strong introvert,” the tour will focus on group shared experiences by visiting ancient landmarks with lots of time to recharge in the beautiful, historical surroundings of Glastonbury.
"Most travel tour excursions highlight many implied social gatherings or shuttle you from place to place with a guide talking over every thought you have. That’s not something introverts would be drawn to," Avebury said. “Introverts most often prefer listening to their own thoughts and taking things in to hearing someone list facts.”
Guests of The Sacred Introvert Retreat Tour will stay at the Abbey Retreat on the grounds of the 7th Century ruined Glastonbury Abbey. Located on 37 acres of parkland and large enough for each participant to have their own room, the Abbey Retreat is within walking distance of all of the town’s main attractions. “This travel experience will provide the opportunity for quiet travelers to always have their own room, yet be surrounded by like-minded people in surroundings that will refresh them,” Avebury said.
Excursions to places on and off the beaten path (Stonehenge, Wells Cathedral, Bath, Uffington Castle, Stanton Drew, etc.) will be offered every other day. Days in between are reserved to recharge and relax in a way that feels right for each individual. Many optional informal opportunities for yoga, meditation, talks and walks will also be included throughout the Retreat Tour. "I would never want people to feel pressured to participate in anything, this is their time and they should spend it the way it feels right for them," Avebury said.
The cost of the tour is $3,795 (not including air fare or ground travel) and includes all meals and beverages (non-alcoholic). Meals are freshly prepared each day in the Abbey’s kitchen with locally sourced ingredients and all dietary requests can be accommodated.
Avebury was inspired to create Sacred Introvert Space, a shared community blog, and Sacred Introvert Retreat Tours after seeing Susan Cain's Ted Talk and reading her bestselling book “Quiet.”
“My hope is that introverts who visit and participate in what Sacred Introvert is offering will feel supported and uplifted by the knowledge that they too are just ‘introverted.’ And being just introverted is just fine,” she said.
