HEART-FELT

WHAT MAKES THIS RETREAT SPECIAL

 This retreat is about getting into a balanced and energised state in our bodies so that we can bring forward our radiance and our gifts. We will practice beautiful and gentle hatha vinyasa yoga with Michelle Cavanagh every morning, eat delicious and healthy vegetarian food, and be introduced to a powerful practice called TRE (Tension/Trauma Release Exercises).

TRE is a safe and gentle practice that triggers a tremoring mechanism in the body and helps us to release stored tension and trauma. Participants in Luke’s TRE classes have described feeling grounded, open, curious, re-energised, finally free of foggy-headedness, fatigue, strain and stress. One client recently described their sessions with Luke as “light at the end of the tunnel…”.

There will also be beautiful additional treatments such as kinesiology and also astrology and human design readings.

This is a retreat full of variety and expertise, in an incredibly special environment, a beautiful Chateau near Paris with wild swimming spots nearby and a wonderful permaculture garden of its own.

Wherever you are coming from, arrive, relax, come into the body, breathe, become re-inspired, re-energised, and with more of a feeling of “you”.

This is an embodiment retreat, to wake us up to our own vitality, energy, beauty, radiance, and intuition.

Chateau de Sacv has a range of rooms to accommodate different budgets - from a bell tent set up and furnished in the orchard that can be shared with your friends, to an en suite with windows giving on to both sides of the garden. All the accommodation is private.

Programme

Each day begins with fresh breakfast, hatha-vinyasa yoga in the yoga barn, followed by free time to spend in the chateau grounds or visit nearby swimming spots.

In the afternoon and into the evening we will practice TRE, a practice that is perfect for taking you gently into evening in a relaxed and expansive atmosphere.

There will be creative workshops, journaling sessions, 1-1 astrology and human design consultations, and optional 1-1 kinesiology sessions.

There will be a day in which there is free time to visit local landmarks, or even jump on a train to Paris for the day.

Food and Drink

Meals will be simple, healthy, locally sourced where possible and will include local cheeses and cuisine. Coffee, tea, fruit and snacks will be available throughout the day. Some meals will be prepared and served by participants, with ingredients and recipe supplied and help at hand.

Free time

In your free time, you can walk to the Chapelle Saint Catherine, a spot visited by Joan of Arc in the nearby woods, go swimming in a lake, ride a bike to the farmshop, learn to walk the tightrope, or just soak up the atmosphere at the chateau. There are various spaces within the chateau walls to spend time or explore: an ancient barn, a recently converted studio, your room, or out in nature in the chateau grounds.

Event Team

Luke Mullen 

Systematic kinesiologist (Dip T.A.S.K) & TRE Provider/Mentor

Being a body-worker Luke believes in the innate ability for the body to heal itself.

He is a Systematic Kinesiologist and certified TRE Provider/Mentor (Tension Reduction Exercises). He specialises in stress and anxiety related issues helping to 'switch off' fight/flight (mobilisation) and freeze/dissociation (immobilisation) reflexes of the nervous system and in turn help to release protective held patterns in the body. Anxiety and stress will impact on all systems in our body creating digestive, hormonal, autoimmune and structural issues.

Awaking the nervous system through bringing awareness to the body in a gentle explorative way helps switch off activated states and create a deeper sense of embodiment. Embodiment is the ability to be with intense sensations and emotions whilst remaining present in the moment. In doing so we are able to connect with ourselves, our environment and others.

Luke has worked with people of all ages with many different conditions always illuminating issues gently, encouraging curiosity and ultimately helping to provide a deeper sense of choice. He runs regular workshops and group classes, working with different charities to help people overcome grief, surgery, PTSD, as well as new Mums.
