Time to care for yourself


To tune in with love to what is here now

This week retreat is about generously giving yourself time and space. In a caring, supportive, and absolutely stunning setting, you can offer your body, heart, and mind the opportunity to unwind from their daily stresses. This week offers a refilling of our vital energies.  Yoga and mindfulness are tools to help us better meet the fullness of life with all of its beauty, chaos, and heartbreak. We learn how to more wholeheartedly enjoy the delights of life and how to meet our struggles compassionately. Through immersing yourself in the daily yoga, mindfulness meditation classes, dharma talks as well as delighting in the delicious meals and sitting by the calming river, you will build up more physical, emotional, and mental strength and flexibility.  You can then return home recharged and full of life.

This retreat is open to everyone of all levels and experience.


This retreat will be held in silence.

Engaging in a silent retreat, especially if you're new to silence, offers a unique opportunity for self-discovery and inner growth. While it might seem daunting at first, immersing yourself in silence can be incredibly liberating. It allows you to step away from the habitual patterns of everyday life, giving you the space to connect more deeply with yourself. This isn’t always an easy task but it is deeply rewarding. Layers of fixed behaviour get shed, leaving you lighter and freer. Silence fosters mindfulness and presence, offering a pathway to deeper insights, personal reflection, and spiritual connection.




Connect with and energize your body through yin and yang yoga.

Feel and open your heart through dharma talks.

Clear and relax your mind through mindfulness meditation.

Recharge your soul through silence.

Nourish your senses by spending time by the river, in the gardens, amongst the bamboo, around the goldfish pond

and eating deliciously good food!

It's an entire week for you.


Time to pause and turn towards yourself.

 To feel into this moment through your body, heart, and mind. 

Space to take care of yourself just as you need.

To remember how to more fully delight in life. no matter your current circumstance.

KARMA YOGA ~ Giving of service 

Moulin de Chaves is a non profit Association. Everyone who comes here on retreat contributes 50 mins of their time each day towards the running of the Moulin. This may be anything from washing up, veggie chopping, cleaning, or gardening. This practice is done in silence. We thank you in advance for helping us in this way.


Silent retreats are the only types of retreats I book for myself. Over the years of stepping back yearly into silence, I have grown so much. There are insights found in silent retreats that aren’t as easily found in setting of communication. Through time spent turning deeper inwards, not having to check in with others or stimulate my mind in conversation, I have gotten to know myself more and more intimately.  The more I get to know myself, the more I find I really like myself. Silent retreats, even through the storms they can bring up, have taught me how to love myself fully and unconditionally. This doesn’t mean I am perfect. Oh no! I have come to love my messy complicated humanness. And the more at peace I am with who I and and how I am, the more at peace I am with the world around me. I think more peace is what each of us and the world needs. Peace takes courage. It takes stamina and generous heaps of compassion. All this gets trained up on a silent retreat. That’s why I keep going back, year after year. I hope that you will join me. May this retreat be of support to you for you to find even more access to you boundless heart: full of love, compassion, joy and spaciousness.
