Project Description

Edmund Colville

I have been studying yoga and meditation for 20 years and have learnt and experimented with many different healing techniques and processes. It has been a wonderful journey and all that I have learnt has become supportive parts of an overall understanding of holistic healing. I was delighted when, 9 years ago I discovered Vortex Healing which affirmed and included so many parts of what I had learnt but added considerable additional possibilities. About then my journey in setting up and growing West Lexham as a retreat centre started and that healing journey has run parallel to building the business. For me life gives you exactly the challenges that you need to heal and certainly West Lexham has not been without its challenges. For me it has been a Dharmic path, in that walking it has necessarily brought up the parts of me that need healing and provided the right circumstances to facilitate that healing. So studying Vortex Healing which is both a way of healing and awakening to our true nature, has optimised these opportunities. I am very pleased therefore that the time has come for me to be able to offer some of what I have learnt as Healing Retreats in the Centre that I have built. I have been to and worked on countless retreats over the years and I know how nurturing and beneficial the right setting, environment and content can be for people. I have also been exposed to many of the techniques that are available nowadays for healing. So I am very pleased to be able to distill all that learning into a truly effective retreat series that I feel sure will create lasting change for participants.


A journey to the centre of your own being to discover your origin point. Take away skills on how to find this point of stillness beyond the world and your own mind, that is always there to connect with and bring in Love and Truth

The principle healing technique will be Vortex Healing, which uses our deepest essence as oneness to bring us back into wholeness. The nature of that oneness, which could also be called Divinity, the Tao, Atman, the Self… joy, light and love. To experience our truest nature like this is to experience inner peace. The experience we have of being a separate entity, apart from the whole, introduces us to negative experiences and therefore patterning that obscures our natural inner peace.

While these healing sessions will give a glimpse of our true nature, the journey to permanent realisation of this is long. We cannot in any way promise to heal all patterning and conditioning that blocks inner peace. We can, however, make significant inroads, help you on the path and give you essential tools to speed your way. Ultimately you will need to take responsibility for this journey. So the purpose of this retreat is to help you do that, whether it is boosting an experienced meditator, or giving a map to someone starting out.

Questions and discussions around practices and issues raised in the healing sessions will greatly help to consolidate the healing and bring your awareness into what needs to be done in the future.

Vortex Healing is healing lineage that is around 5600 years old. At its core, is a relationship with the divine, the oneness that is all creation. The divine energy and consciousness of this, is the power behind the healing tools which heal the wounds of separation while bringing us back to wholeness. Consequently the healing techniques are very powerful and because of the divine intelligence behind them targets the precise and deepest areas that need attention, for maximised benefit. Vortex healing as a discipline seeks to map out the human energetic anatomy in as much detail as the medical sciences map out the physical anatomy. Consequently Vortex healing corresponds to, and also works on, systems set out in other ancient medicines such as the chakras in Ayurveda, and the meridians in Chinese Medicine. Vortex Healing brings together all these and previously uncharted parts of the energy system to be able to offer detailed protocols for a variety of illnesses from knocking out viruses, to treating allergies, to energising particular organs, to working on emotional issues such as fear and anger. With such broad possibilities Vortex Healing is best considered a healing art. Even with the scientific discipline and detail of Vortex healing, the human energy system is so complex and the causes of any issues worked on so multifaceted and networked, and the ways of treating the illness so numerous; it comes down to the individual healer to intuitively work with the recipient and healing energies. Since those healing energies have their own integince the results are astoundingly effective. The great joy of Vortex Healing is also that while you may be treating a specific thing with a great deal of focus, the divinity in what you are doing is also always looking to evolve the system as a whole, to move towards the ultimate spiritual goal, a return to wholeness through awakening to our true nature as That.
