Stephanie Chivers is a habit and addiction specialist who shares what has successfully worked with 1000s of people in her years of personal and professional experience.

Next, she set about learning about herself and changed her life, which is now unrecognisable, by design. This day is for you if you are considering taking a break from drinking or if you’re struggling a bit; if you’ve stopped drinking but life isn’t quite working out or if you just need a boost, a reminder or a shared experience. Note for Club Soda members this course is discounted by 20% – so join today for £14 off You’ll spend the day with like-minded people in similar situations and find out: What’s the big deal with alcohol. How to live a happy, healthy life. How to thrive, not just survive.

After our relaxing and healing walk, we will sit down together for a homemade feast in a stunning log-cabin, nestled in the woods. A visit to see neolithic cave paintings A rare chance to visit Cueva de la Pileta to see cave paintings dating as far back as far as 20,000 BCE. This truly surreal experience will leave you pondering how our ancestors lived and how similar to us they really were. The cave art includes some 400 cave paintings and rock engravings of both animal figures, abstract paintings and hand stencils. A flamenco night Flamenco is the ultimate expression of Andalusian culture.
