Description

The urgency of compassion in our lives: defining compassion, but also distinguishing compassion from empathy, what are the benefits of compassion, what does it bring when the body is compassionate, and finally opening the narrow door of compassion. In the heart of Provence, this retreat will allow you to recharge your batteries in an enchanting setting in order to draw from the source of Life. You will discover Saint-Maximin-la-Sainte-Baume and its sacred mountain where Mary Magdalene spent the end of her life. A pilgrimage path leads to the famous grotto of Mary Magdalene, guarded by the Dominican friars. Doing good to your body so that your soul will want to stay there” – food for the body and for the soul. Without losing anything of its scientific achievements, the medicine of tomorrow is the one that will associate the energy of the heart. By seeing how to dare compassion, how to find the core of light in us, it will help us to live better individually and together. And what better guide than Mary Magdalene to remind us of these values. Alternating lectures/exchanges and meditations in the morning and time for walking in nature/visiting/silence in the afternoon.
