Return to the Centre Retreat, St Colombe, 7-14 October

Retreats give you a chance to step back and take stock of your life in new surroundings and with like-minded people. In our fast-paced and distracted world, it is challenging for us to maintain a sense of being centred, in balance and in tune with our inner truth and purpose.

This retreat will give you some special time to orient towards your deeper centre and reflect on your spiritual journey and destination. We will visit various sacred places as pilgrims and walk a symbolic labyrinth as well as taking an inner journey. This process will enable you to envision who and what you might still become in terms of your own values and priorities. You will leave the retreat with renewed inspiration and courage to live your life and truth to the full: to be who you truly are.

The programme will include talks, discussions, sacred geometry, movement, outings and walks – and of course rest and relaxation. We will climb up to the Cathar fortress of Montsegur, which is only half an hour away, and spend a day visiting the castles of Queribus and Peyrepetuse, with a good lunch in Cucugnan. We will also visit the picturesque Mirepoix market. The comfortable accommodation in St Colombe is in single and double rooms, most with their own bathrooms. The delicious vegetarian food is cooked by my beautiful Marianne, and there will be some good wine on hand for those who like a glass (charged at cost). The cost of €600 per head includes registration and full board with vegetarian food for seven nights (only excluding Cucugnan lunch). A deposit of €100 or £90 per head is payable on booking. En suite rooms will be allocated on a first come first served basis and the group will be limited to a maximum of 12. We have 10 already.

Travel:   from England there are flights from London Stansted to Carcassonne (60 mins away – recommended) and from London Gatwick to Toulouse (90 mins away).
