400-year-old house in the tiny village of Durfort in southern France.

Janet and Keli will engage your minds during guided artistic meditation and other creative exercises including intuitive painting, designing your own chakra cards, and creating a Mala bead necklace used in meditation.

Mala NecklaceYou’ll have an opportunity to experience personalized sessions of Tarot Card, Rune readings, and quiet walking meditation. Through yoga, breathing exercises and a variety
of meditation you will practice calming your mind to find the silence within. This quiet of your inner being helps you to experience an amazing opening to your body, heart, soul
and spirit.

We will each take part in shopping local markets and preparing our delicious meals in La Cascade’s lovely kitchen. Part of our Karma Yoga experience will be caring for La Cascade and participating in daily life in a French village.

There are many charming villages, markets and artisan shops near Durfort which we will explore. Dining out at local eateries for one lunch and one dinner sampling some of the regional specialties of southern France such as cassoulet and foie gras, will round out our culinary adventures.
