New Year Resource, d'Angles sur l'Anglin, France
€370 - registration open

This is a quiet 3-day retreat for a small group looking to resource, replenish, reconnect, and usher in the coming year with firm, calm grounding, clarity and sensitivity. This retreat centre has a 100m2 practice room, with space for 6 people to have their own rooms (most of these have private bathrooms). Vegetarian food is lovingly prepared with homegrown products from our hosts garden, and the venue is set at the edge of the charming historic village of d'Angles sur l'Anglin, 1h30 south of Paris near Châtellerault. Full program, room and board included. Partners and good friends are welcome, with or without program engagement.

The Hills Are Alive... Sainte-Pierre d'Entremont, France 
380 (early bird), €450 (regular rate) private room - early bird registration open
This four-day retreat, co-led with my friend from my dance studies program at Université de Lille, is nested in a mountain village about 40 minutes outside of Chambery not too far from the Chartreuse natural park. With private rooms (and bathrooms) for those who wish, we'll have plenty of space to practice in, and time to explore the mountains all around. If any of you have families you would like to bring along over this school vacation period, I am pretty sure we could work something out. 

June 18-21, 2021 
Spring Rejuvenation, Paimpol, France - waiting list only
We'll take a long weekend (4 days) to 'air out' body and mind, as we walk along the water's edge, reconnecting to the elements of air, earth, water, space, and whatever light chooses to be available to us in this utterly charming coastal setting of Brittany. 

and MAYBE...

May 13-17, 2021

July or August 2021 
Dancing Through Time and Space, Colorado Rocky Mountains, or Yellowstone, USA
This 5-7 day retreat takes place under the stars, guided by scientist Scott Denning and movement artist Ann Moradian. We'll trace back to the beginning of time, and the birth of the universe, walk through geological time to dance with biological time, where we find ourselves deeply intertwined as a part of the natural, living world.

Dates and location to be determined 2021 (TBD) 
Chakra Intensive, in France or the Black Forest, Germany
