THE FRENCH QUEEN RETREAT
- Let me take you on the footsteps of Eleanor of Aquitaine, the first feminist Queen of France, who fought crusades while introducing a culture of chivalry among her courtiers.
- You will become my “Eleanors” during this retreat!
- “The Healing Power of Champagne” feminine retreats take you on a journey to self-discovery, and self-nurturing through individual and group experiences of activities, discussions, workshops…and free-flowing Champagne.
- I believe in balance, and the retreat will have as much fun, laughter and cultural visits as spiritual and personal growth components. I will facilitate the retreat and most of the workshops and will also have an individual coaching session with you during the retreat. You will leave with mindful awareness of where you are right now in your life and new insights into creating a life you love. You will do all this in a safe community of women, helping one another create your own path toward living the life of your dreams.
ScheduleA typical day could start with yoga in the garden, or meditation/reiki workshops in the library followed by a gourmet lunch in a beautiful village. One afternoon at the Spa and tea could be the ideal opportunity to discuss how we embrace our own aliveness as a woman, and how we treat our bodies. A visit to a chateau and the story of a famous Queen could make us reflect on how far we’ve come in our lives, and how we are Queens ourselves. A private chef might surprise us when we are back at our retreat location with a candlelight dinner set up in the garden, and it will be the perfect opportunity to have fun and laugh together.
