Long meditation walks in lush meadows, equine-facilitated mindfulness sessions and quality time with lively fillies – this retreat is a horse-lover's dream. Set in the sun-drenched hills of southern France, it’s the perfect way to relax, recharge and connect with these remarkable creatures. The tranquil garden also offers an ideal setting to journal or simply be in nature. Throw in an aromatic bread-baking ceremony, and you’ve got the perfect getaway.

Are stress and self-doubt ruining your attempts to live a long, happy, healthy and fulfilling life, full of purpose and meaning?

My Connect with Horses Retreats, based on Equine-facilitated Mindfulness and Equine-Guided Meditation, will dramatically increase your self-confidence and enable you to significantly lower your stress levels by connecting with my horses in an enriching, compelling and transformational way. 

During the Connect with Horses Mindfulness Meditation Retreats in the sun-drenched south of France, you will first and foremost, be able to rest, relax and recharge your batteries. You will also benefit from attending this retreat because, with the empowering help of my horses, you will develop a new set of skills to help improve the quality of your life.

Our food is simple but delicious and we aim to give your digestive tract as much of a rest as the rest of you while feeding your body as well and as generously as your mind. Meals (brunch and dinner) are a celebration of the wonderful variety of fresh local produce available from our garden as well as from the local weekly fresh food markets. On Sundays, you can attend a Made-with-Love Breadbaking Ceremony. To support the local economy post-covid, we have dinner on day 4 at a local restaurant (cost not included, usually 15-30 euro depending on your choices) If you have any allergies/food intolerances, please let us know at the time of the booking.

Enough free time is available for relaxing and recharging your batteries. None of the activities is mandatory. If you prefer to skip an activity and just relax and read quietly in the garden, you are more than welcome. The program is not set in stone – the weather is the main determining factor of each day’s program.

The horses make these self-development retreats UNIQUE. All activities happen with everyone’s feet firmly on the ground – there is no horse riding during these retreats.

Margaretha
After working for 20 years as a medical doctor in a variety of specialities including psychiatry and general practice, I came to the conclusion that many diseases have their roots in my patients’ inability to handle stress effectively.

Instead of treating stress-related illnesses, I decided to look at practical ways that my patients can use to prevent stress from ruining their health.

I studied a number of alternative therapies including hypnotherapy and NLP, and eventually combined my education and experience to create the transformational virtual and residential retreats that I host in the south of France.
