About BLOOM Retreats
Inspired by author, entrepreneur and founder of the SEED empowerment programmes for women, Lynne Franks, our BLOOM Retreats offer a unique blend of experiences for the whole woman at Lynne’s beautiful private estate in Deia, Mallorca.
A select team of wellbeing experts, renowned artists and international guest teachers have joined BLOOM to create a series of holistic retreats on wellness, art, fitness, creative writing and more. In addition Lynne continues to teach her highly successful signature Women’s Creative Leadership Retreat several times a year.
Our Retreats take place at Lynne’s beautiful property, part of an old monastery with stunning views overlooking the Mediterranean and the Tramuntana mountains and within walking distance of the ancient village of Deia which has been home to many artists and writers for almost a century.
