Jack Pransky Retreat

Jack Pransky Retreat-006

A Unique Retreat In The Delightful Suffolk Countryside

“The Solution To All Problems”


Dr Jack Pransky 

(hosted by Frocks and Minds*)

The feedback from this recent Retreat is a testament to Jack’s deep understanding and experience in leading groups…

“Over-used term but nothing short of transformational – the power of formelessness over ego proved illuminating, insightful and liberating.  For a moment I glimpsed my wisdom in action”  Mark G.

“The whole weekend has been filled with a deep love, connection and truth.  I’ve touched a deeper space of possibility where the illusion melts away and only love and oneness exists – here I can do and be anything.  Please do more of these events – they’re so powerful and priceless in value.”  Katie F.

“It was a lovely space for reflection and an opportunity to delve deeper into the understanding of the creation of illusion, and essence and oneness”.  Claire S.

“Whee – b*****y marvellous” Trevor D.

“Time spent with Jack is like gold and the warmth that develops over the weekend between everyone is something that you never forget”.

“The practice of gaining familiarity with my own wisdom, with ease is powerful, powerful, powerful.  Thank you”

“Thank you Sue and Gillian for the best of weekends.  Jack is a brilliant teacher”.

In 2005 Jack was the first Three Principles-based Facilitator to hold a two-day Retreat here in the UK, and it’s always a pleasure to welcome him back.

With his ability to combine insight and wisdom with a style that is both finely tuned and entirely accessible, Jack offers personal stories with sharp observations and clarity that create a portal into deeper understanding.

Join us for Day One and relax into a space where anything might happen! Jack has over thirty years’ experience of sharing the Principles with individuals and groups as well as producing a treasure trove of writing.

Stay for Day Two and sink further into a space of reflection as you explore your own personal insights, ask the questions that arise for you as you enjoy the safe and wise guiding light that is Jack Pransky.

The two days of this Retreat compliment one another…

Day One:

A deep and gentle dive into what our problems really are and how solutions always appear with new perspective

  • Navigating the constant flux of your own unique state of mind, which often leads to suffering.

  • Seeing with more clarity how the system that powers the creation of your personal experiences works, moment to moment.

  • Exploring the true meaning of Consciousness, the single supreme animator that serves up our individual and separate realities.

  • Exploring the true meaning of “deep listening” and how it is the primary power for solving problems.

Participants are encouraged to bring what look like insurmountable problems to be seen through new eyes.

Day Two:

Up Close and Personal (limited to 12 places)

  • A deeper and more intimate conversation about the role of Divine Mind and Divine Consciousness

  • A chance to further explore your own understanding of the simple solution to overcoming your own and others’ problems and your own and others’ suffering

  • Transcending the lure of ego and how to trust your inner knowing


Mount Bures is on the Essex/Suffolk borders, and travel to the venue is easiest by car or train – the nearby village of Bures has a railway station with a connecting service to Marks Tey and onward to London.

At Jack’s request we have kept the price for attending Day One to a very reasonable £80, and for both days £120

A special rate for couples joining for both days is £220

(Please note it is not possible to join for Day 2 only).
