People from all over the world join us on workshops here in the sun-drenched south of France.  We know we are somewhat biased, but we assure you, this truly is one holiday you are not going to forget in a hurry. Nor will you forget what you have learned while yo were here. But don’t take our word for it…read the testimonials below.

We have collected quite a few testimonials (or guestimonials as I see they are now called) over the years. Here is a small selection:

You are so inspirational in everything you write without ever being preachy or overbearing. I love your style and insight. L Gaitan

I think about you and your fur family SO often – your farm is my go-to daydreaming place. I smile just thinking about the space, the lake, all my horse friends (who thought I’d ever say that!) and the cats walking through the paddocks. C-M Munroe

Thank you so much for your engaging and inspiring workshop; it was amazing how much I have learnt in this short space of time! I specifically appreciated your patience and great sense of humour. Lucy and I intend to keep in contact, Mireille too – their friendship is an added bonus I never imagined when I signed up. And thank you for welcoming us in your gorgeous and comfortable old house – I will be back! A Hughes

What a fabulous workshop! Not only did I learn a ton about mindfulness and meditation in a very comfortable and welcoming setting, but I really met some awesome people. So many thanks for introducing me to Gascony. A. Dreyfuss

I really enjoyed this personal empowerment workshop. I learnt exactly what I wanted to learn. I met some great people and thought the workshop was great value for money. It was excellently put together and taught and I recommend it without reserve. P. Alexander

This workshop exceeded our expectations – great food, excellent teaching, smoothly and professionally organised. Thank you for introducing us to this surprising, wonderful part of France….Here’s to attending again next year! S and F Essen

Sincere thanks for providing us with such a special workshop. It was filled with beautiful views, great food, new friends and exciting field trips that helped us increase our stress management skills. What a great way to explore a country AND its people! Thanks again for a wonderful time and please also thank Rosie for taking such good care of us. Your friends, Helga and Anton Kruger

It was a privilege to meet such happy, contented and generous horses. You really do deliver all your website says, and more. We are looking forward to our next visit and will recommend you to all our friends! Alex, Tony, Roy and Stella Lobb

From the moment we arrived the stunning beauty of the horses and the setting absolutely took our breath away!! We thoroughly enjoyed learning more about mindfulness, your practical and down-to-earth approach worked miracles for us! We will be counting down the days until we come again…T Garcia

Many thanks for our mindfulness weekend and for your flexibility over the last minute changes – you were brilliant and so enthusiastic, we really enjoyed ourselves…we are already planning our next holiday – hope you can fit us in for a week during October! A. Campbell

Your mindfulness and meditation workshops are great! Very relaxing, well organised and most of all tremendous FUN. I was amazed to meet people from so many different countries: Germany, France and South Africa. I have learned a great deal of valuable information from the EEL sessions. Looking forward to returning next year! T. Verneels

Dear Margaretha, I must thank you for the wonderful workshop. It has really helped me both in my professional and private life. Thank you again for all the hard work you put into making it such a memorable event. And a big thank you also to Beau and Belle – with my horse phobia I never dreamt that I would one day feel the irresistible need to hug such an imposing horse as Belle. Alicia Paturas
