A week long retreat and vacation in Provence, France
with Leonard Jacobson
Join Leonard for a week of retreat and relaxation in the stunning region of Provence, France at the Résidence Les Belles Heures. This vacation destination is located in the small village, Roaix, part of the Côte du Rhône vineyards and close to the famous Mont Ventoux in the Vaucluse.
Over the course of this week long retreat, participants will come together in oneness and surrender to the depth and beauty of the present moment. Each day, we will attend teaching sessions with Leonard in small and large group settings. There will also be opportunity for personal guidance from Leonard as well as individual time for silence and reflection. The natural environment and quiet pace of the center will allow for extraordinary experiences to unfold. There will also be time to take walks through the vineyards and countryside or simply relax by the pool or the many beautiful, quiet spots throughout the property.
Sixteen individual residences have been graciously restored within the historic property of the Résidence Les Belles Heures, which is situated on the beautiful River Ouvèze. All houses have well equipped kitchens, allowing residences to prepare meals with fresh food purchased at the local markets and boulangeries. The emphasis of the center is intimacy, peace and serenity.
For those who choose to participate, two dinners with Leonard and the group will be organized at a charming local bistro. Also, optional local excursions have been arranged - a walk through the vineyards of Roaix and Rasteau and a visit to the famous market in Vaison la Romaine.
The Upper Vaucluse has consistently been rated as one of the top vacation areas in the world, where nature, outdoor activities, history, gourmet food and excellent wines (like Chateauneuf du Pape, Gigondas) create a unique environment. The scenery is spectacular – with many ancient villages (like Avignon, Seguret, Crestet, Vaison la Romaine), vineyards, orchards, the lush hills with their scent of juniper, sage, rosemary and wild thyme, the blue sky and the sweeping views over this lovely countryside add to its beauty. Legendary Mont Ventoux has a wide diversity of flora and fauna which have led it to be ranked as a Biosphere Reserve by UNESCO. The region is also well-known for the beautiful weather with more than 2800 hours of sunshine per year.
This retreat is for those who are ready to deepen into presence and enjoy the splendor of a week spent in the beautiful environs of Southern France. You will discover how to heal and release the past, open more fully into the present moment, overcome limiting beliefs that might be holding you back, and experience the deepest levels of inner silence and peace. Any retreat with Leonard opens us into the deepest levels of presence and oneness.
To be in retreat with Leonard is a life transforming experience.
