In support of Banyan Retreat and SoulQuest

A Great Event in Support of Demelza Hospice Care for Children


with Scott Milligan and the Austin Wish Circle.

Tuesday 1st December, 2020 at 7pm UK time by Donation.

(CET: 8pm | PST: 11am | EST: 2pm)

As you are most probably aware, each year we donate the toys from the Christmas Tree sittings to Demelza Hospice Care for Children. This year as we will not be holding any Christmas Tree sittings so we are working online to raise funds to help these terminally ill children.

We have a suggested amount in the donation box but this can be changed to any amount of your choosing. Please give generously to help this worthwhile cause.

REACHING FOR ETERNITY - Sitting in the Power with Nic

SoulQuest will be online via Zoom until further notice

Thank you for supporting Demelza Hospice Care for Children

Banyan Retreat Christmas Charity Appeal 2020

As you know each year we do much fundraising for Demelza Hospice Care for Children and so far this year we have raised over £3000. However, this Christmas time we have a greater challenge as there will be no Christmas Tree sittings due to the Covid 19 pandemic and therefore no toys to donate. Fundraising events have been more of a challenge as they all have to be online.

So for this year, we have decided to give all SoulQuest event donations given to us during the months of November and December to Demelza.

If you would like to make a personal donation, please click the link below. Please give generously and support these terminally ill children.

Take A Look Around

What we offer

We pride ourselves on having only the best tutors working with us here at Banyan Retreat. we are blessed to have people like Eileen Davies, Scott Milligan, Christine Morgan, Mavis Pittilla, and many many others who uphold high standards of mediumship. We have a number of workshops and demonstrations taking place each month.

We have achieved stage four accreditation with UK healers and British Alliance of Healing Associations for our certified two year Spiritual Healing Course.

We teach Tera Mai Reiki and Seichem as we believe this is the most balanced form of Reiki Mastership available.

Banyan Retreat is dedicated to the work and communication of the spirit world. This work is the primary reason why we are here.

Our goal is to help as many people as possible get in touch with their inner self and the infinite possibilities the spirit world has to offer. Learning to love and learning to give means becoming increasingly selfless, only by doing this and connecting with our inner self can we express ourselves and evolve.

Communication take place here each month in the form of Private Sittings, Evenings of Mediumship and Trance Communication Evenings and Physical mediumship seances. When touched by the spirit world your inner light shines much brighter and you find an inner sense of peace and wellbeing.

Natural Healing is Non medical treatment which promotes better health; analysis of your lifestyle, diet, sleep, exercise and most importantly your stress levels. Promoting greater harmony between Mind, Body and Soul.

How Will it Help You? When we have a build-up of stress, our bodies are slow to respond to instructions from our brain. The nerves are tense and message communication with our brain is slowed as a result. All treatments are designed to reduce the effects of stress and induce deeper relaxation. This allows our bodies to function properly.

Take a look at the treatments we offer and see how and why they will help you.

We support two charities:

German Shepherd Rescue Elite – we help to rehome rescue dogs throught the Kent region.  All our dogs are rescue dogs and we have supported this charity for a number of years. logo-on-light
Demelza House – each year at Christmas time we collect toys and gifts for the termially ill children who are supported by Demelza House.
