Mindfullness Menopause A Transformational Retreat

Sidi Kaouki, Essaouira, Morocco  November 15 - 21, 2019



We all want to increase the sense of flow in our lives.

For this, the ocean is our greatest teacher.


The tidal zone is a place of constant fluctuation.

The water rises, the water falls - and the organisms living there flow with grace through these changes. It is a beautiful place to listen, to open, and to invite the resilience and adaptability of these powerful plants to teach us.

We will spend the week in the tidal zone, learning how to identify, to sustainably harvest, and to process a diverse variety of seaweeds for use in cooking as well as skin, hair and body care. Lectures include the specific healing and nutritional properties of each seaweed species we gather, the healing benefits of isotonic seawater treatments, thalassotherapy.  

The Program also includes:

  • Daily yoga, meditation and movement classes.

  • Daily ocean meditation walks.

  • The power of journaling.

  • Application of  belief changes.

  • The Heros Journey

  • Changing beliefs to empowerment.

Roscoff & Île-de-Batz, Brittany, France


At the meeting place of the Gulf Stream and the English Channel, on the northern coast of France, you will find the charming, historical village of Roscoff. Dating all the way back to the middle ages, Roscoff is the meeting place of three cultures: French, Brittish & Breton (or Breizh). Merchants, traders, fisherman, sailors, and "goémoniers" (seaweed harvesters) have all share the past of this special place. Both quaint and enthralling, the stone architecture, flowered passages, and stone beaches are the perfect backdrop for the folklore of fairies, mermaids and sailors that have circulated in this region for centuries.

Île-de-Batz is a very small farming village a twenty-minute ferry ride from the Roscoff harbor. Full of tiny, turning footpaths - this island is the perfect place to get safely and wonderfully lost by foot or bicycle. It is home the purest waters for harvesting the largest diversity of algae in continental Europe.
