Your Retreat Host - Rev Jo Royle
I have spent over 15 years holding space for individuals and groups often in some of the most challenging and/or beautiful moments life brings. I've taught over 400 people to meditate effortlessly and regularly hold women in workshops, retreats, circles, ceremonies and accompaniment. I previously worked as a coach and facilitator in the corporate sector. In 2020 I was ordained as an Interfaith Minister following a passion to dive deeper into an exploration of my own spirituality. I currently live on the Isle of Skye with my family after living in a bus for 4 years and being guided to settle here… but that’s a story for over dinner one evening!
