Self- Awareness Retreat in the South of France – Aug. 30th to Sept. 5th.

Do you need a break that serves as both retreat and vacation?

If you seek help to discover your true life purpose, this retreat in the stunning Luberon Valley of Provence, is just the answer.

Located in the perfect Provencal hub close to Aix, Arles, Neims and Marseille, Menerbes is a charming 12th Century hilltop town surrounded by the Petit Luberon Mountains, vineyards and trails. It is the village location in Peter Mayle’s book – A Year in Provence.

See yourself in this stunning, 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 will take place in the morning hours and includes some simple morning yoga, meditation, and daily self awareness techniques. With all there is to do, use the remainder of your day to visit the surrounding area.

Curriculum: 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.

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.

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.

What’s included: Self-awareness retreat, exercises, books, and accommodations.
