Join me at my home in France to fall under the spell of the herd and with them embark on an extraordinary journey of self-discovery. The retreats offer an opportunity for both structured and spacious encounters with the horses with time for reflection and simply soaking in the beauty of nature in this small, verdant valley in North Western France. There is an emphasis on integration of mind, body and spirit, embodied presence and compassion.
The retreats are offered with a community spirit and are self-catered. You will be invited to be in the service of the herd as well as the group, contributing to the care of both the human and horse herd. Each day we will tune into the needs present and take care of them as a group. Cooking and clearing will be shared responsibilities as well as the hands on care of the horses. Being in service like this to the entire herd is an important part of the practise of the retreat as well as taking care of our own needs.
Special dietary requirements will be accommodated. Breakfast is self-service, taken in your accommodation or in the gardens as you choose. Lunch and dinner are prepared and taken as a group. On the first morning of the programme we will visit the market in the local village to purchase fresh produce and to the supermarket to buy necessary groceries.
Limited accommodation is available at La Source on a first come first served basis, in one of the delightful gites – two bedroomed Honeysuckle Cottage or one-bedroomed Rose Cottage. Otherwise you are invited to book your own accommodation in a nearby gite, Air BNB or chambres d’hotes, or campsites and we will assist you in this.
Whether you are meeting a simple yearning to sink into the healing energy of the herd, to reconnect with yourself and the natural world, or whether you have more specific goals related to your personal or professional growth, the retreat is an opportunity for you to stand back and take stock.
