"Le lieu et le séjour parfait : vers l’intériorité "

L’attention portée au bien-être physique et psychique du participant

Le lieu calme et paisible, le cadre verdoyant, l’engagement de l’accompagnateur thérapeute Simon Cole, son approche, la gentillesse et les plats délicieux de sa femme Janett

"Amazing experience"

This retreat was just what I needed and more. The house and surroundings are beyond beautiful. The peaceful surroundings almost force you to look within (which is a great thing for someone trying to find themselves). Simon was a great teacher and counsellor. Janet is an amazing cook and delighted us everyday with her cooking. I will highly recommend this for everyone!

"A Unique, Rich and Creative Adventure For the Mind"

Le Sentier Tranquille is a place I can really be my true myself. It is incredibly easy and natural to feel so comfortable and at ease here, with oneself and with others. It provides everyone with a variety of different kinds of space to be, to explore and wander. Poetic and tranquil, idyllic and cosy, as if a picturesque wonderland inside an inspiring haiku.

Both the individual consulting and small group meditation experience with Simon are very insightful, helpful and applicable for everyday mindfulness. What is wonderful is not just what I've learnt during the retreat, the experience has enabled me to have a higher level of awareness and mindfulness after I come back home dealing with the difficult, transformative situations in my personal life. I highly recommend anyone who are seeking for a unique, meaningful, down-to-earth and intimate meditation retreat experience to come to Le Sentier Tranquille!

"Beyond any expectations"

The whole six days brought experiences that I never thought would be so powerful and truly life changing. Simon is a true mentor and has the ability to make one think in a way that can seriously adjust one’s life in the most positive way. Since my time at Le Sentier Tranquille, my whole life has taken on a more optimistic meaning. It truly is to be experienced first hand, to be believed.

"Retreat exceeded my expectations in many ways. "

Location, accommodation and out door space, little touches eg toiletries supplied, hosts, meditations, one to one sessions, food and the whole experience was exceptional and would highly recommend a stay at this retreat.

"Very relaxing break"

The accommodation and ambience was really relaxing. The other attendees were good company and this helped to make the week. The food was great and we had some great discussions about things that don’t generally crop up in normal conversation. This is not a ha d core meditation retreat but that wasn’t what I was after. Altogether a very good week in a fabulous location. Even though the castle walk nearly killed me.

"Spring clean the mind and heart"

I liked the way Simon spoke and explained the meditation in simple steps. His method of giving headings to each stage or journey of the formal meditation he proposes. It put mindfulness meditation more user friendly for me to practice on a daily basis. And now I am feeling the benefits of a daily practice, as uncomplicated easy method to use and look forward to doing it too. Also I am not so reluctant to do an unguided meditation alone.
