Meditation Retreats in FranceThis historic stone-built house is set between two stunning river gorges in one of the most beautiful and historic regions of southern France. The house is warm, colourful and welcoming, decorated with works by local artists and each one of the bedrooms has a private bathroom. There is a wildlife garden and woodland, with numerous terraces, all giving wonderful views of the Viaur river valley, whose waters are among the wildlest and cleanest in France. The medieval village of Najac is a few minutes away, and the village is close to some of the great historic sites of Southern France - Saint Cirque Lapopie, Cordes sur Ciel, Albi, Figeac, and the original 25,000 cave paintings in the Grotte of Pech Merle.

With meditation, conscious breathing and yoga-
based movement in magnificent natural
surroundings, we will expand our awareness beyond the thinking
mind to connect with the Source of Life within us
at the core.
This small-group retreat will bring an upwelling of new
vitality and greater connectedness to life
beyond the thinking mind.
The retreat takes place in a traditional stone-
built house, between two
river gorges in the beautiful Aveyron region
of Southern France, with wonderful views over
the valley of the Viaur river, which is among
the wildest and cleanest in France.
This is an area of outstanding natural beauty
and great elemental power. With outdoor
yoga, swimming in natural rock river pools,
and meditative walking in the river gorges, we
will connect with that elemental vitality. The
same life that flows through the natural
world also flows through our own bodies,
and finding this connection is a powerful
way to release old emotions and return to our
natural ease and freedom in the body.
We will also make a special private visit to the
magnificent Pech Merle caves, an Ice Age
sacred site of great power, a rare opportunity to see original
25,000-year old paintings of horses,
mammoths and bison.
Meditation, conscious breathing, yoga- based movement in magnificent surroundings in South of France, with private visit to sacred Ice Age Cave Paintings.
