For a Great Glamping experience
Slow Down Mindfully and Be Yourself 14-21 June 2013
This week retreat, guided by couple Stan and Melanie, offers a perfect balance between depth, creativity and playfulness.
Based on the practice of mindfulness derived from the Plum Village tradition (where Stan lived for a number of years) you will be led into a beautiful week of slowing down and breathing. During the week you will discover the beauty of mindfulness through meditations, walks, drawing, singing, talks and yoga. Of course you will have plenty of space for rest, play, rejuvenation and personal time.
Days are started with stick exercise or meditation and continue with a schedule of inner exploration and group activities. Of course there is also free time to enjoy the grounds of Simply Canvas, nice walks, relax with a book in the hammock or enjoy a dive in the swimming pool.
Melanie was born in Germany, lived in India and is practicing art, yoga, tantric bodywork and being a mother. Stan is from France, also explored the nature of mind in India and lived in the community of Plum Village. He practices yoga, music and coaching. Together they renovated an old farmhouse in Dordogne which became their beautiful home, creating a loving space with nature and their two little sons.
Main language this week is English.
Costs €735 including 3 meals a day and all activities in a 2-person shared accommodation. €150 extra for a 1-person accommodation. Excl. your trip to Simply Canvas. €50 discount upon reservation before 28 February.
Away without a single worry in the World 24 – 31 May
Is a lovely week to get all rested and have a regenerating holiday. Enjoy the undisturbed views of the French country side, spend your afternoon with book in the hammock and doze off with the birds. Have a dive in the pool and go on slow walks. At the same time you voluntary choose to join one of the workshops going on that week. Go about in a creative way with a land art project (making art with nature), wake up to some stretching and relaxation with the stick exercise. Visit a beautiful little place in the country side for a few hours of (mantra) singing or join a workshop of introduction to massages and subscribe to having a lovely massage for yourself. Visit one of the local markets and shop for some goodies.
You don’t need a car this week, we offer 3 meals a day, so just stroll along to the dining area when it is time for one of our fabulous (organic) meals. Sleep in the holiday home or a little more outside in one of the beautifully decorated safari tents. You only need to get yourself over here and enjoy!
Costs are €450 p.p. in a shared 2-person accommodation (€150 extra for a single accommodation) excl. your trip to Simply Canvas and the workshops (which vary between €15 - €45). Fly to Bergerac airport where we come and pick you up.
