Charlotte Church has stated that she intends to make her newest venture, a Welsh healing resort, “as accessible as possible” in light of the current economic situation.
The 36-year-old Welsh singer-songwriter, who first gained notoriety as an opera singer at the age of 11 before going on to discover popularity as a pop sensation, has turned a rundown Welsh country mansion named Rhydoldog into a nature-oriented business endeavor called The Dreaming.
Church, who calls herself an “ecowarrior,” discussed her plans to use “pay what you can” and “pay it forward” pricing models on This Morning in an effort to widen the retreat’s accessibility.
Charlotte Church assured Holly Willoughby and Phillip Schofield that everyone can afford to stay at The Dreaming Retreat.
She continued, “I wanted to make it available to as many people as possible.
Each and every one of our retreats will feature a “pay what you can” area.
She elaborated, “I really want to build up a pay-it-forward plan, I really want to work with different charitable partners, so over the next six months to a year I’m really going to evaluate what our choices are to make this accessible as possible and as valuable as possible.”
Church just revealed on Instagram that the seven-bedroom villa, formerly owned by Laura Ashley and now functioning as a therapeutic retreat, is currently accepting reservations.
Charlotte Church’s Dream Build, airing on Really, is also documenting the renovations.
Church purchased the building and has been renovating it for the past two years; the first season of the show aired in the previous year, and the second season premiered on Wednesday night.
A “practitioner” at the retreat, the singer who has played for the Queen and former US president Bill Clinton said she intends to do “chanting and singing to the land” as part of her experience.
Among the many unique spaces in the restored rural manor are the Moon Room, the Mushroom Room, and the Mystic Room.
Church said, “I am such an eco-warrior, I’m sure a nature person, that’s kind of what I’m really compelled to do anyway.”
She went on to say that seeing the effects of the epidemic and other rising demands on regular people motivated her to establish a sanctuary where they could relax.
She explained that “part of it is about connecting to nature.”
Our neurological systems are getting burned out, and our mental health isn’t holding up because of our hectic schedules.
Church added that attendees “may approach it at any level” due to the retreat’s “soft and self-guided” nature.
Time: 10 a.m. every weekday on ITV.
