Temenos offers you a great opportunity to come and gently nurture yourself.


Slow down gently and breathe in deeply the fresh, clean air of McGregor. During your stay we can arrange gentle early morning walks and a Yoga class.


If you are hoping to instil a sense of quietness within yourself you are welcome to join our daily silent meditation sessions. We have a wide range of body and healing therapies for you to indulge in which you can book on arrival or prior to your visit.


Within the gardens is an extensive library of Health and Healing books for you to choose from and to enjoy either reading in front of a log fire in your cottage or in summer, relaxing at our lap pool.

Dr Marianne Verthoogt

Homeopath, Massage Therapist, Aromatherapist, Reflexologist

As a Wellbeing Practitioner I see "dis-ease" as a disharmony or lack of inner balance of the whole body, rather then a mal-functional of a part of the body. 

Health is described as not merely an absence of disease, but a state where there is a sense of wellbeing and balance on a physical, a mental and an emotional level.

Spiritual Companionship

As a 'spiritual companion' I undertake to come alongside and 'keep you company' for a while on your own spiritual path.

The qualities of a spiritual companionship that I value are a sense of shared pilgrimage, of spiritual frendship and of working with you in kind of soul 'midwifery'.

Card Readings Native American and Runic

Why not give yourself the gift of an intuitive card reading in the privacy of my home in the village, next door to Temenos.

Together we can explore any questions you may have, or just take a look at 'where you are right now'.

Poetry to meet you on your path

So many people have been saved by a poem, transformed by a poem, or simply touched by a poem. So many of us have felt less alone, when we have read a poem that captures just how we feel.


This is your opportunity to explore one-to-one the power of the poetic word, which is totally life-affirming. It may reveal diagnosis, remedy or guidance. You may be looking for insight regarding a question or issue, or simply like to engage with the medium of poetry to enhance your inner world.


A cancellation fee of up to 100% (of the cost of the treatment) may be charged on bookings cancelled less than 24 hours before the appointment time.
