Realm 29 is a multi-faceted business, focusing on online therapy sessions and retreats

Songwriter's Retreats are currently on hold

Hosted at the Hard Rock Hotel, London


 From only £1995, Realm 29 Retreats offers a unique weekend of 3 nights and 2 days, designed to get your songwriting to the deepest level.


The Realm 29 Method involves theories available nowhere else and includes a one to one talking therapy session with a psychologist to connect you with your truth, and other activities designed to inspire you and push you to master the craft.


At no extra cost, get a Fender guitar and amp delivered to your room at the hotel, that has had residents including Buddy Holly, Diana Ross and Bob Dylan, to name a few. Jimi Hendrix lived at this hotel at the height of his stardom. There is also an incredible memorabilia collection and original artwork in every bedroom.


The weekend will consist of a group of approx. 8-10 songwriters on the grounds of the Hard Rock Hotel, London plus our nearby one to one rooms.


Our team is here to get your songwriting to the highest level on our world class VIP program

Who is this for?

This is for people who already write songs, both established songwriters in the industry and people who are at earlier stages in their story. This is not a course, there are no teachers and no students. The mentors are here to help you on your own individual journey to develop your songwriting on the path that’s right for you. We remind you of golden rules about songwriting, techniques, philosophies and approaches that the delicate art seems to favour. It’s beyond inspiration. We believe the songwriters who come on our retreats are able to reach deeper levels by immersing themselves in our unique weekend experience. To advance, sometimes the best move is a retreat.
During the weekend, you can expect to indulge in the following. . .


The next Songwriter’s Retreat will be on Saturday 18th and Sunday 19th April 2020, checking in on Friday 17th

Check in on the Friday for 3 nights and 2 days of the rockstar experience, with the retreat sessions taking place on the Saturday and Sunday between approx. 10 -6pm
