La vie en rose

LA VIE EN ROSE RETREAT

23rd of April – 27th of April 2024
L A  V I E  E N  R O S E

She sees the world in all of her beauty. She notices the flowers that start blooming again, she observes the world with wonder while she sips from her matcha and takes a bite from her croissant.
There is no such thing as mundane moments for her. Simplicity touches her soul. She feels deeper than is visible when one touches the surface. She discovers pleasure and joy everywhere she goes. 
La vie en rose. Romanticizing life. Living life.

A magical hidden gem in a valley in France. A former mill from the 14th century located at a wild stream.

Being caught up in the simplicity of life while creating space to feel deeper. Finally there is time. Enough time. No rush. Everything is being arranged for you. The food looks impeccable and tastes amazing, the outstanding views of nature warm your heart. In depth conversations ignite your dreams again. All of a sudden you realize that it isn’t all that complicated. All of a sudden you start seeing the possibilities.

The exhalation of the simplicity creates space. Space for you to feel again, space for you to breathe again. A conscious breathe in and out.

While you are being taken care of, you are being treated on a diversity of sensory experiences. From a sound bath by the salt water pool, to elevating kundalini yoga practices. From entering a deep state of hypnosis, to transforming EFT tapping. From finding recognition in circle to life altering ceremonies.

Within the subtle realms a process is being activated. A process of rebirth. An invitation to creation. Enhancing the process through creative practices and solutions.

23rd of April – 27th of April

Can you already visualize yourself bathing in this beautiful salt water pool with the most outstanding views?

On a beautiful land in the country side

In a beautiful valley in the South-West of France you will be immersed for 5 days in the healing power of nature, surrounded and carried by a tribe of likeminded women. The uniqueness of this location naturally carries you on the rhythm of the earth, leaving you with a grounded feeling of inner calmness.

Meet your space holder

Meet Moika. Kundalini yoga teacher, mentor for women, passionate about sounds, sexual arts, the subconscious mind, ritual & ceremony and womb wisdom.

Moika invites you to a slower and more conscious way of living, where there is space to follow your natural rhythm as a woman, where there is space to breathe, to to be.

She invites you to reconnect with nature, in a way you may have forgotten.

Her unique alchemy of subconscious work combined with conscious work while interweaving tao and tantric practices immediately puts you in a different field of receiving.

She invites you to explore the subtle realms of pleasure, deepening your experience for more overall joy and satisfaction in your life.

Through her calming auric field she has a natural tendency to make you feel grounded and at ease.

Having been able to hold space for over 400 women the past few years, she has gathered so many insights and knowledge and is eager to inspire you while being inspired by you at the same time.

Meet your plant based and holistic chef

Hannah – kinder kitchen.co

Meet Hannah – our holistic nutritionist and chef from Sydney who will be the heart of the retreat – filling your belly with all the good stuff while including her herbal & adaptogenic wisdom to ensure that you will glow from the inside and the outside after this retreat.

Growing up on the country side in the North of England, Hannah had a strong connection with the wild nature from a very young age – this translates itself in her cooking where she is not simply creating another meal – but really taking all the benefits from several herbs of nature into account.

She has a passion for creating food that feels as beautiful as it looks. Hannah works with ingredients that are locally grown, seasonal and organic as far as possible, to create dishes that are nourishing to the body, mind and soul, and work in synergy with the world around us.

In addition to her degree in Nutritional Medicine, Hannah has studied macrobiotics at the Kushi Institute in America and has worked at some of the best plant-based cafes in Sydney.

She weaves together her love of wholesome ingredients, knowledge of how the body works and passion for sustainability, to create meals that feel like edible hugs. Expect adaptogenic tonics, rainbow salads, healing broths and beautiful raw treats and bakes, infused with spices, superfoods, and lots of love.

Meet your photographer

Caro Dewilde

Caro is a Belgium-based photographer & videographer. After obtaining a bachelor’s degree in Journalism, she graduated in Photography at Luca School of Arts in Brussels.

Her work spans a diverse range of subjects, including people, fashion, still life and nature. Nature always plays an important role in her work and in her life: it is where she finds peace and at the same time feels inspired by its beauty. The colours, the textures, the feeling of freedom. Also, the people she meets inspire her a lot, as do traveling, music and other creative disciplines.

Caro mainly shoots on analogue film and is drawn to a certain tenderness in her visual language. She uses the analogue medium and her photographic work to express her visual universe and create stories.

You are invited to welcome a deep trust in yourself as a woman.
