Join me in beautiful Montbreton near Bordeaux, France!

April 22-27, 2018

Montbreton as a historic chateau built in the 16th century on the foundations of 9th fortification ramparts around a fortified tower built in the 14th century.  The château is located on a 100 acre property, partly wooded and partly walnut tree orchards, on the edge of a plateau overlooking the beautiful Dordogne river valley.  It’s a five minute drive to the charming village of Gensac, 25 minutes from the historic pilgrimage and fine wine producing town of St Emillion on the Compostelle pilgrimage route that is still used today and an hour east of the world heritage city of Bordeaux, that has long been a center of art, commerce and fine architecture and that is enjoying a renaissance today.


The interior of the chateau has been completely refurbished and is the perfect environment for retreat, relaxation, learning and the rejuvenation of mind and body.
