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.

During this New Year retreat we will work with meditation, conscious breathing and the awakening of the energies of the spine to find the creative Source of life within, and know true freedom. From this comes peace, and a profound sense of renewal for the New Year. We will also take meditative walks through the wild river gorges and make a special New Year pilgrimage to the medieval shrine of the Black Virgin at Rocamadour, one of the most magical sacred sites in France.
Simple, fluid movement, based on the Scaravelli yoga method, awaken the energy of the spine, and help us to release tension from the body and return to our original ease and grace. As meditation and movement become one in the present moment, energy and creativity can flow through all the actions of daily life. You will leave with renewed vitality, and greater connectedness to life, beyond the thinking mind.
