Maison Ila: Reconnect and Renew

A Transformational Retreat: Reconnect to Feminine Power

When: 22 – 28 August

Where: Maison Ila, Sonnac-sur-l’Hers, France

How much?: Price by application

There are times in life when we all need to retreat, take a breather, and look within to fundamentally change how we feel about ourselves and our lives.

Against the backdrop of this exceptionally beautiful healing house, this bespoke week-long retreat offers that opportunity. This is the unspoilt and beautiful land of the Cathars, surrounded by the snow-capped peaks of the Pyrenees. Our week together sees us meditating in a private church, bathing in quiet lagoons, wild swimming in a private river, and experiencing sound ceremonies in ancient caves.

Using a powerful combination of 20,000 year old shamanic techniques and modern methodologies that draw on cutting-edge quantum physics, Anna will enable you to dissolve mental chatter and overload, to find emotional equilibrium and poise, to re-discover optimal physical health and wellbeing, and to enhance your spiritual connection with the animating consciousness behind everything.

All authentic leaders require time out to destress, unplug, & authentically reconnect with creativity and their professional and personal vision. This retreat is your ticket to reconnecting with who you are, and what contribution you wish to make.  You can expect to emerge from our week together feeling clear, confident, vital and well. With a clear understanding of the things to which you wish to devote your time and energy, together with a road map of how to realise those visions.

The crushing guilt I feel around the divorce lifts and… I no longer feel like a broken lightbulb, or a damp firework. I just feel like myself. A good, sorted, confident version of me… I feel peaceful, Zen-like, as if I’ve been meditating on top of a mountain in Tibet for three years. It’s as if the brightness button has been turned up on my life. The sun is brighter, I’m brighter.

Life is more fulfilling. I feel more grounded in reality. My ability to empathise has increased hugely and I get more out of people, yet I’m less worried what they think of me. I’m a lot happier in who I am. Confidence has replaced cockiness. My work with Anna hasn’t crushed my drive, it’s tempered it. I make better work decisions, and I have the ability to stop, while I see other colleagues go way beyond with extra work that doesn’t take them where they want to go.

[Fours days with Anna] enabled me to accept who I am. I haven’t smoked [since], I’ve made up with my mum, I’ve looked people in the eye, I’ve finished therapy, and I haven’t been lonely once.

I have done two four-day retreats with Anna. Each has left me feeling like I have completed seven years of cognitive therapy. The progress I have made still amazes me and I feel light, strong and free. I met Anna when she gave a talk at Greenpeace, and I have now brought her to The Netherlands to work with my team.
