Self- Awareness Retreat in the South of France – June 8-12th.

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.

If you need a break that is both retreat and vacation, and are seeking answers to help discover your true purpose in life, getting away to a location steeped in natural beauty with time to relax and connect to inner self at your leisure is just the answer.

Schedule of activities includes some simple morning yoga, meditation, and daily self awareness techniques.


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. We will drill down to the essence of you and it will be awe-inspiring and fulfilling!
