ABOUT THE RETREAT
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 shorter workshops.
Building on the rich transformational work of the Radical Aliveness Retreat, each winter Richard offers an 8-day retreat which is an opportunity to re-experience aspects of the Radical Aliveness Retreat or shorter workshops and deepen into a new level of integration.
The winter retreat has a different pace than the summer Radical Aliveness Retreat. It is an opportunity to deepen and experience your understanding of the work with that Richard. 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 the larger collective. Foundational elements of the teaching such as the Mandala of Being, dream work, and body awareness practices are used, and also there is a greater element of improvisation. Often it is in the winter that Richard will experiment with introducing fresh elements of the work and new exercises and practices to stimulate participants to learn and grown on your transformational journey.
Richard dines at each meal with participants, breakfast with former European Deepening Program or Mentoring Program graduates, lunches with the current European Deepening Program participants and dinner with anyone else who would like to have some time with him.
Whether in session or at the meals, you will have a chance to get your questions answered and discuss aspects of your life where you wish to have his guidance.
As with the summer retreat, a team of people familiar with the work are present to support you.
The Hameaux de l’étoile is the ideal choice, for its 20 years of experience welcoming groups, for the authenticity, beauty, and tranquility of the location, for its proximity to Montpellier (an easy 30 minute drive north), for its infrastructure and its capacity to host people in comfortable and beautiful surroundings, for its fresh cuisine and its warm and friendly atmosphere.
