THE UNLIMITED SELF: LUXURY OF PURPOSE-DRIVEN LIFE

About us

Living Your Highest Potential

Join us in the countryside of South-West France and explore what your unlimited self feels like. Align with your purpose and highest potential. This spans more than just your career - it’s your life path. Discover innate gifts, bridging the gap between life skills to a sense of fulfilment, abundance and steady income. We will look at this aspect from the masculine perspective of “doing” and how to remove emotional blocks when it comes to executing on your dreams. From a spiritual standpoint, the masculine perspective has a strong emotional influence in your life, as it governs your purpose, finances, confidence and self-image.

We will explore the themes of value, self-love, luxury of fluid manifesting and living out your dreams. This intensive retreat is for those who are serious about finding fulfilment and purpose, who are ready to step into their authenticity, personal power and flow. For those who are ready to face their shadow emotions, dive into their trauma and take responsibility for their actions. Join us if you are ready for a challenge of pushing through your limiting mindset and getting out of the state of resistance and feeling like you always have to “push through life”.

One of the main teachings on this retreat will be around what blocks financial flow and why you think you never have enough.

We will help you understand the cycles and patterns in your life, reoccurring traumas and themes - and how these are either blocking you from purpose or guiding you towards your purpose. This is also ideal for entrepreneurs or individuals who are ready to start a different career. Please note that after exploring all of this your perspectives will change. You will walk away with a sense of relief, clarity on your purpose and confidence to execute on it. Let go of the fear of other people’s opinions. You have the right to exist and thrive. As vibrational shifts occur and our reality is a mirror, expect rapid changes in your environment and circumstances.

Our retreat takes place in the South of France at a real castle, named by Elle magazine as one of the top retreat spaces in all of France. Dating back to the 17th century, some rooms have a real Versailles look and feel. Think vineyards, history, countryside, love and all the beautiful things that define France. Our Chateau de Bardouly is located between Bordeaux and Toulouse in the Dordogne Region of South-West France. This central location allows us to explore a land rich in vineyards, fortified ‘bastide’ towns, and an extraordinary range of natural and historical heritage sites. This romantic countryside features the beauty of the Dordogne River; the renowned gastronomy and wines of Bordeaux and Bergerac; a rich cultural life; and numerous leisure and sporting activities.

If there is anything that I aim to do everyday, it is to spread the peace that I found in myself while on this retreat. I signed up thinking that I would come back to Toronto with a slight change in perspective, but I humbly admit that I feel transformed. I can relate to anyone who has ever felt stagnant, or held back by something, and this retreat served as a way to breathe life into the voids and uninspired spaces. It gave me the opportunity to soften the noise of the "hamster wheel", so that I could better hear the universe whisper. Forever grateful. Thank you for putting your everything into making this happen! The retreat was life

Why Retreat?

We asked people why they go on retreat, here's what they said:

This sounds like a dream! I am an education student and I have spent way too much time working all summer to pay for school. My boyfriend of 5 years is a government firefighter and has been away working most of the summer. His 30th Birthday and our 6th anniversary is coming up this winter, we would love to celebrate with a yoga retreat! We both love yoga but have barley had time to practice in the past few months. Keeping our fingers crossed! Jaimee and Dan
