You must wonder why we decided to buy our farm here in the south of France where we host our Personal Empowerment Workshops, based on mindfulness meditation, because it is really not a very attractive region.
The landscape is flat and uninteresting.
Nothing much ever happens.
The food is not particularly good.
The people are quiet and withdrawn.
There are few wild open spaces left.
The wine selection is limited.
The weather is boring.
The roads are congested with traffic.
It’s just not a very relaxing place.
There is nowhere you can go for a quiet walk…
…or sit quietly and meditate.
It is over-populated, there are people everywhere…
…you never get a moment to yourself.
What is wrong with the south of France? It is just not the place to go to if you are looking for a peaceful, relaxing holiday far from the madding crowd, where the people are welcoming, nature is unspoilt, the food is exceptional, the wine excellent and there are loads to see and do if you ever should choose to get out of the hammock. It is definitely not suitable for Mindfulness Meditation Workshops with or without Horses.
Honestly. Why would ANYONE want to go to the south of France to attend a personal empowerment workshop?

Oh! Gascony! Lovely! Not at all where I thought you were. What a wonderful life!
Makes me wonder where in southern France you are! I have a deep connection to the area around Toulouse, which is really considered “Southwest” and not south, as Provence, etc. is. This was a great post!!! And I love every reason you gave…
About two hours south-west of Toulouse, deep in the heart of the Saint Mont vineyards. Now the names of the regions have all been changes, our region is now called Occitanie. Lovely to meet you, Lisa.
Yes, it looks awful! 😉 Beautiful pictures of a lovely region!
People often are when they get here!

You had me at south….
You landed in Heaven without dying. Wait, are you a ghost writer!!
That is brilliant, Beth, I’ll just go haunt the empty 400-year-old house next door for the rest of the day!

To cheer up a cold January evening, I thought I’d reblog of of my favourite posts from my friend Margaretha’s blog. Who knows, it might inspire some of you to plan a little retreat for next summer!

Merci, Lisa! Je me suis fort bien amusée à écrire ce post.
