Self- Awareness Retreat in the South of France – Aug. 29th to Sept. 4th.

If you need a break that serves as both retreat and vacation, are seeking answers to help discover your true life purpose, then this retreat in the stunning Luberon valley of Provence, is just the solution.

Located in the perfect hub in Provence close to Aix, Arles, Neims and Marseille, Menerbes is a charming 12th Century hilltop town surrounded by the Petit Luberon Mountains,parks, vineyards and trails. It is the village location in Peter Mayle’s book – A Year in Provence. See yourself in this serene and versatile location with the ability to stay on site the entire retreat, or venture out to surrounding areas to explore in your free time.

Schedule of activities includes some simple morning yoga, meditation, and different self awareness technique mastery daily.

Use the remainder of your day to visit the surrounding area.

Utilizing my book, A Practical Guide to Awareness,  a step by step guide to finding fulfillment through self awareness, along with its companion workbook, Putting Awareness into Practice, we create a simple way to create space in your day to focus on  desires, dreams and living consciously in order to discover your purpose.

These include:

1) Vision Boarding – how to discover your true purpose or gifts.

2) Creating Space in Your Day- allowing for flow.

3) Practicing Mindfulness in your environment.

4) Introduction to breath work.

Once you really begin to integrate these concepts you can then apply them to other areas of your life. Allowing for space,  allows for introspection. In the quiet creativity you see things you haven’t before, about yourself and your world.
