RETREAT // Yogahealing & Meditation with Shirin Ourmutchi, Southern France, France

Shirin Oumutchi:

I would like to invite you to an amazing trip into the charming landscape of southern France. For one week we focus on all the things which fill us up with pure joy. We are located at a wonderful spot in the middle of pure nature. The holistic center called “Chez Zen” is full of beauty, abundance and peace. It is the perfect place for the holistic work of Yoga for Peace (yoga, meditation, healing). We practice yoga and meditation whilst being in the most exquisite nature. For our meals we get spoiled with the organic, home grown food of the Chez Zen farm. In between the holistic sessions we can go for walks, go swimming in the nearby lakes or we just chill at the pool and enjoy the centers wellness facilities - such as sauna and massages. In the evenings we gather by the fireplace and let our souls do the talking (and dancing) ;-) In the mornings we start our day with an energetic yoga practice to fill us up with fresh energy and to set a clear focus for the whole day. The yoga sessions in the evenings will help us to release tension and to relax into a healing stillness. The meditation which I am channelling are the essence of my spiritual work. They are extremely healing for our entire system. They help to clarify our mind, they transform old patterns, they strengthen our intuition and finally do they nourish our souls!

Close to the Pyrenees, the 2.2 hectares estate stands alone on a hill and provides breathtaking views into wide valleys with poplars, vineyards and fields full of sunflowers.

The beauty and endless expanse of the nature grants peace, the close vicinity to the place of pilgrimage Lourdes, the long summer season as well as the holistic and sustainable approach of the Centre allow a broad range of events for retreats, fasting cures, seminars and meetings.

A large salted water pool, sauna, fireplaces, a close swimming lake and hiking paths also contribute to physical wellness and deep relaxation.

In three buildings you can find the lovingly and individually designed seminar and sleeping rooms. Furthermore there are three terraces to enjoy.

The idyllic orchard and a kitchen garden created as an organic permaculture enrich the vegetarian cuisine of Chez Zen.

After each course a certain percentage of the revenues are donated to a social aid project or an animal protection project.
