Chairmans Report

June 2024

Here are some highlights of developments and events over the past 12 months.

Antara Free Natural Health Clinic:


The last 12 months has seen a steady stream of people taking advantage of the help offered at the Antara Clinic, with more having come through the doors than we had in the previous year. The need continues to grow.


The therapies currently offered are: Counselling ,Reiki, Bowen, Naturopathy, Nutrition, Kinesiology,  Somatic Psychotherapy and ACT (Acceptance and Commitment Therapy )


It has been a fulfilling year and we anticipate a busy year ahead. 

Huge thanks must go to our staff, our receptionists and therapists who give their time freely with generosity and kindness.


Antara Retreat


The Retreat continues to host monthly Nurture Weekends and additional events like the Re-Wild Weekend and a Breathwork course completion event with attendees from Australia and New Zealand.


It has been a while since we had Wwoofers (willing workers on organic farms) to help with some of the labour intensive work on the Retreat land. We had a privet clearing week, which saw big piles of small privet trees piled up and burnt.  Wwoofers came from France, USA and the Netherlands.


Also of help on the land we have the use of a log splitter to assist with the everlasting job of providing firewood for hot water and floor heating. We have generously been donated a second hand garage which will soon be re-erected as a much needed equipment storage shed.


We are embarking on a new venture with the potential to provide retreat accommodation, firewood and potentially an income source.

Gareth, our resident arborist, had access to trees suitable for milling and we have collected some on the neighbouring property. We have a sawmill to turn these trees, and other trees we have been offered, into building timber to make shepherds huts for additional accommodation and for sale.


And here we must say a fond goodbye to Garah and Courtney.  They have been a huge help in in their 20 months living at the retreat, from hosting the Breathwork course, tending the gardens, chopping down trees, running the Rewild Weekend and putting their mark on the ambiance of the retreat.  We wish them all the very best.


A special thank you once again to you all, our donors, for your much valued and continuing support for our projects.


Thank you.
