Details:

We begin with a 2 night stay in the gorgeous seaside town of Collioure, where we will explore art galleries, castles and cobbled streets, shop the markets. We will dip in the Mediterranean Sea and enjoy this hidden gem and all it has to offer!  WHY begin here? It extends the opportunity to connect with the people and history of this part of the World and it sets the stage for opening our hearts through curiosity and beauty. 

You will choose your room at Hotel Les Roches Brunes for Saturday and Sunday. (I have negtioated hotel room cost; please note it is an additional expense and is not included in the retreat fee. 

There will be free time to explore on your own, sunbathe, rest. A group supper at a remarkable seaside restaurant is organised for you on Saturday and is included in your retreat fee. Sunday we enjoy Collioure's awesome food and craft market. A wine tasting in the late afternoon within ancient vineyards is also included in your retreat cost. 

Monday we take a bus to the medieval and historical city of Perpignan, where we will have a guided tour of the city highlights including de Palace. Afterwards our driver grabs our luggage from Collioure and retrieves us in Perpignan to take us to La Taillede, just an hour away. All included in retreat cost.

At La Taillede we bask in its Catalan beauty, relish in vegetarien cuisine, and move our bodies with Yoga, dance, donkey- accompanied mountain hike with picnic and a shorter "Ruin" hike to the river--who will take the cold plunge?!  At La Taillede, we will settle in and lounge in the sun by the pool, practice being comfortable in our quiet, sit by the bonfire on the terrace and soak in the wood-fired tubs. This place is more than exceptionally beautiful, it is resonates with deep magic. I cannot wait for you to experience it, heal from it, expand within it.
