Introvert Thought Leaders to Join 

Sacred Introvert Retreat Tour to England in May

(Los Angeles, CA) – Introvert thought leaders Tanja Gardner of Conscious Introvert Success and Brenda Knowles of are joining the first ever “Sacred Introvert Retreat Tour” taking place May 1 – 10 to the “Kingdom of Wessex” region of England. The tour is geared towards introverts, a market many travel companies have overlooked, offering a gentle, introspective way for solo travelers to take part in a group setting. 

Lisa’s Sacred Introvert Retreat Tour sounded like a truly amazing opportunity to explore the sacred lands of Glastonbury in the company of people who really understand what it’s like to travel as an introvert,” Gardner said. “It’s the kind of thing that doesn’t come around often, so I wanted to take advantage of it while I could.”

Led by Sacred Introvert founder Lisa Avebury, a self-described “strong introvert,” the tour will focus on group shared experiences by visiting ancient landmarks (many off the beaten path) with lots of time to recharge in the beautiful, historical surroundings of Glastonbury.

“I have been to London but want to explore more of the English countryside. I wanted to meet and travel with others who understand my desire for meaningful conversation and experiences as well as my need for downtime after such experiences,” said Knowles. “Lisa is a fun, passionate and compassionate woman thus making her the perfect leader for this trip.”


Both Gardner and Knowles will offer talks at the retreat. “I can’t wait to speak with my fellow-trip mates about introversion and relationships,” Knowles said.


Avebury was inspired to create Sacred Introvert Space, a shared community blog, and Sacred Introvert Retreat Tours after seeing Susan Cain’s Ted Talk and reading her bestselling book “Quiet.” 

“My hope is that introverts who visit and participate in what Sacred Introvert is offering will feel supported and uplifted by the knowledge that they too are just ‘introverted.’ And being just introverted is just fine,” she said. 

Guests of The Sacred Introvert Retreat Tour will stay at the Abbey Retreat on the grounds of the 7th Century ruined Glastonbury Abbey. Located on 37 acres of parkland and large enough for each participant to have their own room, the Abbey Retreat is within walking distance of all of the town’s main attractions. 

Excursions to places on and off the beaten path (Avebury, Stonehenge, Wells Cathedral, Bath, Uffington Castle, Stanton Drew, etc.) will be offered every other day. Days in between are reserved to recharge and relax in a way that feels right for each individual. Many optional informal opportunities for yoga, meditation, talks and walks will also be included throughout the Retreat Tour. “I would never want people to feel pressured to participate in anything, this is their time and they should spend it the way it feels right for them,” Avebury said.

The cost of the tour is $3,795 (not including air fare or ground travel) and includes all meals and beverages (non-alcoholic). Meals are freshly prepared each day in the Abbey’s kitchen with locally sourced ingredients and all dietary requests can be accommodated.
