You zoom (literally, cause you are on the TGV) from Paris south towards the coast. Historic architecture and bustling streets give way to rolling hills of vines and lavender, winding rivers and hilltop chateaus. You might have to pinch yourself to make sure it's real and you aren't in a daydream like an old film.
You arrive at the sprawling home, an expertly restored mill house. Maybe you take a dip in the stone pool. The light is pink as we gather for aperitifs, canapés and introductions. We walk along the terraces with the lush grass in our bare feet and leave the hustle behind rosé in hand? Oui.
We settle down for an elegant meal masterfully crafted by our radiant chef. We share nourishing food and deep conversation before sinking into to bed for sleep in the quiet… and it's just the beginning. We lay in the sun and we are guided through deep transformative mediations. We move our bodies however they need to move. Bike rides or horse rides, wine or yoga. Whatever feels correct for the day. We get bold and declare new visions we haven't dared to speak out loud. We get down to business. We burn the excuses. We connect with the old wisdom of this land and we are lighting rockets of intention. We lean into the pace of French summertime and have some gourmet adventures along the way. 5 days, 4 nights of chill, leadership skill-building and that soul work.
Eff' the hustle, we're moving from the grind to aligned and eradicating the old rusty epidemic of 'the struggle’ to align with others who share the vision and our core values.
Traveling internationally? Fly into any major European hub (we suggest Paris or Marseilles) and grab the TGV to Avignon or take a short regional flight. Pick up your rental car or jump in a taxi / Lyft /Uber for the picturesque 40 minute drive through vineyards, lavender fields and olive groves. The retreat is in the countryside outside the town of Gordes.
The setting is an elegantly restored and modernly appointed XVII century olive oil mill in the heart of the Luberon in Provence. This is the place postcards are made of.
Down time laying out around the swimming pool surrounded by olive trees sheltered from the wind, dinning in the stone courtyard and reading in a nook tucked under the arbour.
Our mornings are slow but purposeful with a guided meditation as we ease into the 'work'. Every day we'll be creating symmetry with spiritual practices and straight up business smarts to form your personal roadmap for success. We'll take respite in blissful walks in Provence, cooking classes or trips to the market. We'll be merging heaven and earth with some soulful breaks in nature to keep the creativity flowing. Balance is key so you'll have some free time, but Bree and I will be providing as much as we can to activate your genius and align you with your highest self. This is a dense workshop with our best-of so that you're equipped to rip away the constraints of limitation to build your highest expression from where you stand now whilst relaxing into the receiving mode from our souls purpose and intention.
Our chef will be shopping the markets and preparing beautiful meals with seasonal local ingredients to accommodate a variety of diets.
Lina CaschettO, Chef, writer & Former Apparel designer (shhh)
'Coucou, c'est moi Lina! I am a professional cook and native Vancouverite who lives and works in the big, gritty and beautifully charming City of Light (also known as Paris!). I have a bi-monthly column in The Globe and Mail where I share recipes and stories alongside images that I style and photograph.
I absolutely love exploring the rich and diverse culinary history this country has to offer by traveling and discovering traditional French recipes and ingredients. On the weekends, you will likely find me relaxing and cooking at home, seeking out the best asian restaurants in Paris, or wandering a local market in search of all things fresh and seasonal.
Until mid-2017, I could regularly be found cooking and creating new eats from behind the stove in the tiny open kitchen at Pas de Loup. Since then, I have been devoting my time to refocusing and exploring...which basically means eating all the things and subsequently scheming up all the many different possibilities for what's next!

Jacqueline jennings - Entrepreneur coach + Business consultant
I spent over a decade looking after, supporting and enabling high-profile executives. Honestly, I had mistaken the feeling of validation for a sense of passion and fulfillment. In 2012 another umpteenth layer of the onion was shed and I was able to get to heart of the matter - my purpose. My purpose is to elevate entrepreneurs, connect them to their True North and help them play big and do good. I have developed a way of working that combines the results driven structure of a public company approach with the "fail fast" and experimentation friendly model of the startup world. And then I've added a good sprinkle of soulful heart-centricity.
Today my strength lies in seeing the individual strengths and unique "light" in those I work with and in getting entrepreneurs to a place of crystal clear vision, deeply rooted purpose, and specific plan of action.
Having spent so long working with industry leading companies like Aritzia and Lululemon (hint: Entrepreneurship is a core value at both) and running point on programming and coaching for a startup accelerator, I believe that entrepreneurship is the solution to many of our societies most pressing issues.
Bree Melanson - spiritual medium + soul trainer
Bree is a celebrated psychic and medium making her mark on the all-things-esoteric world. She’s putting the ‘chic’ in psy-chic and making it more accessible to everyone; sharing spiritual straight-talk and direct channeled messages from light beings on how to unfold potential, individually and collectively.
Bree’s wide audience ranges from lawyers to artists, celebrities to psychologists, personal coaches, and even other psychics. She supports purpose driven individuals who are ready to dive deep into self discovery get to the root of their constraints and, ultimately, lead with their soul so they can live full, expressed, expansive lives.
The common thread? They’re all people who know they can create the highest version of themselves and need a little know-how and support to create the abundance and joy that is innate and available to us all. Her approach is fresh, contemporary, real and raw, assisting us in lifting the veil between worlds and demystifying the mystical.
