European 5 Day Retreat at Le Moulin de Chaves, Dordogne, France

May 23 @ 6:00 pm - May 28 @ 2:30 pm

You are invited to join us for a deeply transformative residential 5 day retreat full of profound spiritual teaching, supported self-inquiry, meditation, chanting and prayer at the beautiful, peaceful Moulin de Chaves in the heart of France’s stunning Dordogne region.

Living a meaningful, fulfilling and graceful life requires you to relax out of your personality with its fears, concerns and limitations, and journey deeper into the luminous presence at the core of your being. Connecting more substantially to the Source of real love, clarity, peace and joy within you brings the true resolution to the obstacles you face. It awakens the precise guidance you need to embody your unique talents and gifts deeper into our world.

This retreat offers a rare opportunity to substantially shift your core center of gravity, stabilize your realization and live an authentic life free of dominion from insecurity and fear. These five days at Le Moulin de Chaves provide a nurturing container to leave distractions behind and journey into the themes that matter most to you.

Together, we will practice relaxing anything that limits you from abiding in the luminous love and awareness that is our true identity. Compassionately opening our hearts to all we find, we will open into ever deepening freedom, and how the insights you find can be embodied into tapestry of your life.

Through holistic inquiry, meditation and devotion we will explore:

* Deepening your practice of ego relaxation

* Grounding in the true support that always IS

* Unwinding your core ego identity and automatic responses

* Returning to natural openness and clarity

* Embodying authentic Being

* Express your gifts into the world with grace

The format is experiential and powerfully transformative. Miranda will share new practices to help you function in daily life from inner guidance rather than conditioned patterns of mind. She will guide you on how to surrender, ask and listen, and give expanded teachings on the practice of meditation, devotion, prayer and self-inquiry.

 

LE MOULIN DE CHAVES

THE MOULIN IS, AT HEART, A PLACE TO BE – To put aside the outer focussed busy-ness of our everyday lives, and turn inwards to explore body heart, mind and life.

The Moulin is set in beautiful grounds with shady riverbanks and bamboo groves. Contemplative practice is supported by an environment of deep kindness and care, and delicious, organic vegetarian meals.

The Moulin is dedicated to being a refuge for exploring life-transforming practices and teachings.  They open their doors and hearts to people of all ethnicities, sexual orientations, gender identities, ages, abilities, cultures and religions.

KARMA YOGA COMMITMENT:

In order to keep the accommodation costs to a minimum for you and because Le Moulin de Chaves is a not for profit retreat centre predominantly serving meditation and yoga retreats and to keep in line with the monastic traditions and Buddhist Vipassana insight Meditation/Thervada values they ask that all participants offer 50 minutes per day of Work periods/karma yoga.

Karma yoga is a practice that supports the running of le moulin, with participants helping in areas such as kitchen, chopping veggies, gardening, weeding, sweeping paths, household such as cleaning communal areas, bathrooms etc which contributes to lower daily rates for participants and can help integrate meditation/ mindfulness and yoga practice into everyday activity.  The main Karma yoga is at 0900hrs and again after the lunch and supper period, to help with the wash up.
