On the retreats we create the environment and opportunity for you to fall under the spell of the horse, allowing them to take you wherever you need to go. The retreat combines structured exploration with the horses with more spacious encounters. We also build in some free time for reflection. Each day begins and ends with shared mindfulness practise outdoors (weather permitting) and there is an emphasis on the integration of mind and body, presence and compassion. The retreats are offered with a community spirit and you will be invited to contribute to the care of the herd, both human and horse.
All meals are home-cooked, vegetarian and gluten free and we use local, organic produce where possible. Breakfast is self-service, taken in your accommodation or in the gardens as you choose. Lunch and dinner are taken communally.
Some accommodation is available at La Source on a first come first served basis, otherwise you stay at a comfortable gite nearby, where the whole group will also spend some time in the evenings.
The retreat is an opportunity for you to stand back from your life and take stock. It might be helpful if you wish to reconnect with yourself, your purpose, or simply relax and meet a yearning to be amongst horses. The retreat will not involve riding, but will offer the opportunity to join in some daily care of the herd as well as working with them.
