“You are stronger than you think you are.”
ABOUT THE HARVEST
Getting the best out of life means being our best selves but, with all of life’s stresses, obligations and commitments, our own wellbeing tends to fall down the list of priorities. The Harvest is a self-care community based around a series of three day, immersive Gatherings in 4 star hotels, in scenic locations. Some will be held on weekends, others mid-week, to facilitate different needs and lifestyles.
From the moment you arrive you’ll find yourself immersed in an atmosphere of caring, sharing and repairing, with a full programme of activities, including talks from our experts on mindset, health, nutrition, sleep and the Wim Hof Method. There will be yoga and HIIT, holistic therapies – including reiki, kinesiology, hypnosis, craniosacral and more – guided meditations and vision-boarding, with practical tactics and techniques to help you balance your life and lifestyle: work, family, socialising and fitness.
You can do as much or as little as you want, it’s up to you. Relaxing and taking it easy is a therapy in its own way!
We believe that a satisfying, fulfilling and happy tomorrow starts with the choices we make today. There are no quick fixes, lasting change takes commitment and effort but it also means fun and fulfilment. The four key words at the heart of The Harvest are: Love, Laughter, Peace and Happiness. Once you begin your journey, the momentum builds, with healthy living, good eating and a work-life balance become a habit not a target.
Once you’ve been to a Gathering you are part of The Harvest community. You can stay in-touch via the website and you’re welcome to come to future Gatherings and events. It’s not a course you complete and graduate from, it’s a series of immersive events designed to help you fine-tune your lifestyle so that you can be fulfilled by achieving the things you want to achieve – personally, professionally and with your friends and family.
Please make yourself at home here on The Harvest Website. We’ll be posting updates on upcoming events, and maintaining a blog of useful articles, news and advice to help you attain your goals.
Your Future Is The Result Of The Choices You Make Today
Taking time to look after yourself isn’t selfish. In fact, being the ‘best you’ benefits everyone: your family, your work, your friends and – above all – you.
The Harvest is your first step out of the fog. By taking you away from your routines, The Harvest allows you to relax and begin the enjoyable, fulfilling and rewarding journey to the happiest you – the you that gives the world your best, achieves your best, and gets what you want out of life. We’re not saying it’s easy but with focus, energy and a step-by-step approach, you can get so much more out of life.
Through our events, the information on our website, and our community, we’re here to help you get more out of the things you love – work, rest and play. In short, we aim to deliver achievement and fulfilment, through love, laughter, peace and happiness.
A word from Annie Claffey, Founder.
Hi there, Annie Claffey here, founder of The Harvest.
My wellbeing journey began when I was feeling overwhelmed by life. Everything felt like hard work.
I hit a point where I knew something had to change, so I started looking for solutions. I tried every kind of wellbeing technique and holistic treatment. I was determined to feel better because I was miserable and I was making everyone around me miserable too. Gradually I begin finding wellbeing techniques and therapies that put the spring back in my step.
And the real game changer? The fact that I didn’t get the old Annie back.
Don’t get me wrong, the old Annie was great. A hard worker, great craic, a loyal friend but she didn’t really have a hold on herself. She wasn’t giving the world the best of her potential whereas now I’m a force to be reckoned with. I’m intentional about things, from the moment I wake up I’m determined to get the most love, laughter and happiness out of the day.
Sound too good to be true? Well that’s the result of my personal wellbeing journey – and I say ‘my personal journey’ because everyone’s journey is different. Once I started to take proper care of my body, my mind and my days, my whole perception of life changed. The activities that work for me are the toolbox that helps me fully appreciate and relish the good days, and to weather the stormy days too.
Wellbeing isn’t complicated but it does take time and headspace to identify what makes you feel great. Life is demanding and we struggle to find time to think straight and be at peace, so that we can clarify what it is that makes us feel good and what it is we want from life. It was when I found that peaceful place that the idea for The Harvest came to me. A way of enabling others to stop, take a breath and decide what they want out of their lives. To become the heroes of their own stories, to live life to the full and to have fun with their friends and family.
Remember fun anyone?
I’m sharing my story with you because I believe, with all my heart, that if you find the wellbeing steps that lead you in the right direction, you’ll discover a new you and a life full of new possibilities.
I am launching The Harvest while still working in a full-time job and raising a young family. It’s a challenge but the point is, the daily habits I’ve adopted through wellbeing help me to stay in control. My body trusts me to know when I need to take a break - whether it’s a movie night with my husband, a night out with friends or a quiet night with a book. I’m living a balanced life and I’m living every day with intent.
So, my message to you is, my team of Harvesters and I are here for you. We’re ready to help you identify your wellbeing journey, the route that will help you achieve your full potential in life, love, laughter, peace and happiness.
All my love
