Held in the South of France at the beautiful Hameaux de l’étoile Retreat Center this gathering is for those who have attended a 10 Day “Radical Aliveness Retreat” in Europe or the USA or for those who have done at least 2 weekends.
Building on the rich transformational work of the Radical Aliveness Retreat, each winter Richard offers an 8-day Retreat that is an opportunity to re-experience aspects of the summer’s work and bring it to a new level of integration.
The winter retreat has a different pace than the summer Radical Aliveness, but it always goes very deep. Generally the days are not as long, but the structure tends to be more spontaneous and unfolds as Richard listens into what is happening both within the group and within the larger collective. Foundational elements of the teaching such as the Mandala work, dream work, and body awareness practices are used, but there is a greater element of improvisation. Often it is in the winter that Richard will experiment with introducing new elements of the work and new exercises and practices to stimulate participants to learn and grown on their transformational journey.
Richard eats every meal with participants; breakfast for former European Deepening Program or Mentor graduates, lunches for the current European Deepening Program participants and dinner for everyone else who wants to have some time with him.
Whether in session or at the meals you will have a chance to get your questions answered and to discuss aspects of your life where you wish to have his guidance.
As with the summer retreat, there is a team of people very familiar with the work.
The Hameaux de l’étoile is the ideal choice …

for the authenticity, beauty, peace and quiet of the site
for its proximity to Montpellier ( – 30 min drive north – ) and its easy access
for its infrastructure and its capacity to host 180 people
for its fresh cuisine which is well-known in the area
for its warm and friendly atmosphere
