Tamara welcomes you to an adventure, deep into the Archetypal Energies that persuade and pervade through our relationships, inform our patterns of behaviour, and influence our thinking. 

A typical day:  
Early morning movement meditation/walk on the Pic (depending on weather).  

Breakfast in the garden. 

A whole morning of intensive individual, group and pair exercises exploring those beliefs and thinking patterns that obscure and cripple our full experience and expression of deep wisdom, spontaneity and connection with our free spirit and our body. We’ll invite the Archetypes of Innocent, Orphan, Warrior, Caregiver, Seeker, Lover to show us how they manifest in and influence your relationships, your actions, your life, and how you meet them in others. If there’s time, we may also meet the Destroyer, Creator, Ruler, Magician, Sage, and Fool, or that may be another story… 
 
After lunch, you can use your free time go deeper in solo or pair sessions, to rest, do your homework, read, share a massage, swim in lakes or mountain streams, socialise, paint, walk the forest tracks, ride, bird-watch; hot springs, caves, castles...then an early evening session, dinner at 8.00, singing, guided meditation, dance, videos, discussion, meditation, ritual, invocation, star or storm-gazing... An excursion to local sites will be organized.  There will be periods of solitude and silence during the week, in a foundation of mindfulness.   
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
With exercises based on The Work of Byron Katie™, Carol Pearson, you’ll discover how to identify and work with limiting beliefs & Archetypal patterns that inhibit access to and expression of your deep wisdom. We’ll track our life experiences to reawaken and revivify the Archetypes in our psyches, whether male or female.  We’ll support each other in a secure, nurturing and enlivening atmosphere. 
You’ll be given daily pair or solo assignments to complete in your free time.
In addition, Tamara will on occasion be available for ad hoc or pre-booked private sessions.
The retreat will be given in English and French to suit the needs of our participants.

Lavaldieu is a medieval hamlet in the beautiful foothills of the French Pyrenees, steeped in the mythology and history of the Grail, Knights Templar, the Cathars, and of course the mysterious Rennes-le-Chateau. Legend tells that the Magdalene arrived here with her spouse Jesus, and the area has many springs, caves, and sacred places dedicated to her, whence the stories of Jesus, the Magdalene, and the Holy Grail began. It’s definitely a land of Heroes.  Forest walks, meditation, historic castles, unspoiled villages, rivers, butterflies, eagles, wild boar, and horses. An uplifting adventure for your body, your mind, and your soul.
Lavaldieu is the ‘Valley of God’.
