Heart's Journey Shamanic Retreat
FIVE days and Six Nights in the Aquitaine region of France
Closest airports Bergerac and Bordeaux
The heart of this retreat is a journey towards this Centre of Self, said by some to be the Seat of Spiritual Power, the Place of Balance and the Chambers of Healing. In our days and nights together, we will gather around a cauldron, bubbling with a potent sauce of ceremony, ritual, shamanic healing practices, dream incubation, breath work, laughter and fun.
Held in the arms of Spirit, nourished by Nature’s surrounds, the invitation is to drip, drip, drop deeper into this Space of the Heart.
Supper will be served around 6:30pm on Saturday evening and we will gather afterwards, at around 8pm to start the workshop. You are welcome to arrive any time from 5pm.
The workshop will take place at the Sol Henge Retreat in France. The stunning accommodation is surrounded by rolling hills filled with sunflowers and vines. It boasts a secret valley which is totally secluded, 15 acres of private woodland, a swimming pool, stunning views and their very own Sol Henge stone circle.
This is a healing, heartfelt space, offering peace and tranquillity in which to explore, reflect and learn. Our communal work will take place in the central barn and there will be plenty of time to relax in the adjacent terraced area with comfy seating and to enjoy alfresco home cooked meals.
The valley at Sol Henge offers variation for you also: enjoy sunrise in the badger field, meditation in the serene woods, ramble through the country lanes or simply lounge by the pool.
Accommodation is based on single bed sharing. Each of the shared bedrooms is designed for comfort. Relax in the complete darkness and total silence of the valley. The peace is only ever interrupted by occasional songs of the nightingales or the calls of the owls!
Sol Henge do offer accommodation on a B&B basis and so, if you would like to stay on for a few extra nights and relax at the retreat or explore the surrounds, it may be possible to do so. Day trips within easy access of the retreat and, numbers allowing, arranged by the retreat, include visits to nearby Plum Village, home of Thich Nhat Hanh, to the medieval village of Saint-Emilion, named for a monk who was known for the miracles he performed, and a local wine tour.
