This three-day retreat, just 35-minutes from Paris and 2-steps from Le Bois Dieu near Rambouillet, will include organic locally grown vegetarian food, and an option for the use of the site's spa facilities.

This four-day retreat, co-led with my friend and colleague Aurore, will take place in her native village, nested in the midst of the Massif de la Chartreuse.
