“The White Goddess is the Triple Goddess, the Moon Goddess, the Earth Goddess & the Goddess who celebrates Life Cycles.



 The White Goddess Retreat is a collaboration between The Yard, an amazing lifestyle centre and café for the mind body and soul, and Claire Farman, a yoga teacher and healer whose clients have included international stars such as musician, Sting and actress Gwenyth Paltrow.  


Set at the the most beautiful and magical home of the White Goddess, the mountains of Deia, Mallorca, in a stunning former 14th century monastery, Son Rullan.  


Deia has such wonderful powerful feminine energy that Robert Graves was inspired to write the book ‘The White Goddess’ which explores the nature of poetic myth making.  He proposes that true poetry arises from the  natural expression of the spontaneous energy of the unbounded feminine…..This book was a great inspiration to Bob Dylan.  


This retreat aspires to connect all who participate to the power and beauty of the deep sacred feminine White Goddess energy. 


Guests can indulge in the retreat’s beautiful infinity pool boasting spectacular views over the Balearic sea. The full service retreat includes body cleansing with a range of The Yard’s delicious organic plant-based foods and juices with a carefully-planned programme of yoga and meditation sessions to suit all levels of experience.  In addition to this, a specially trained nutritionist will provide thorough consultation for each guest along with a full hour massage designed to nourish the spirit as well as relax the body.
