Highlights of the Singing Meditation Reiki Retreat
-Our singing holidays and retreats in France focus on facilitating positive group learning and interaction. Our breaks are a great opportunity to meet new people whilst sharing a fun and creative activity. Many lifelong friendships have been formed on our singing workshops and holidays throughout the years.
-We offer shared accommodation (single rooms available) in our 19th century converted rustic farmhouse in the heart of the Limousin countryside. Set in 2 acres of private garden backing onto forest and farmland in the protected area of the Millevaches Natural Park.
-Relax and unwind with a reiki and walking retreat in the heart of the French countryside staying at De Tout Coeur Limousin – our 19th century rustic & rural country house.
-Fresh, locally sourced food – with influences from around the world. From traditional French cuisine and local Limousin classics with a twist to Middle Eastern inspired mezze platters. The focus is on homemade, big flavoured food to share around the table during the communal mealtimes. We will do our very best to accommodate any special dietary requirements (please let us know at time of booking).
We are Ema and Peter and we moved to the beautiful Limousin region of SW France at the end of 2013. Leaving busy Brighton city life behind we followed our hearts and dreams to start a new chapter of our lives in the heart of rural France.
Peter is a singing teacher and vocal coach with over 25 years experience teaching individuals and groups to sing and more than that as a professional songwriter and musician. Since moving to the Creuse, Peter also now hosts a regular show on Radio Vassiviere: ‘I wish I was a Punk Rocker’ – highlighting the best of punk, rock, pop & reggae music. Focusing on protest songs & music with a message. Peter is also a very keen amateur cyclist and a veteran of many a French and UK cyclosportive. He was the club secretary of the Sussex Nomads cycling club for many years until he left to move to France. You will often find him in his lycra cycling around the beautiful and peaceful Limousin roads.
Ema is a reiki master, classically trained musician and has an MA in group and intercultural therapy. She worked for many years in therapeutic group care before the big move to France. Ema also loves to cook and write about food and has had numerous articles and recipes published. She is regularly featured inThe Guardian and is even an award winning baker – having won a national baking competition in the UK sponsored by Love Food Hate Waste! Ema now runs our popular De Tout Coeur Limousin blog and you will often find a few of the recipes she cooks on there. You will never leave hungry after a visit!
We are enjoying the challenge and creativity that this new life brings and another very welcome addition is Eric le chien; our adopted and ageing 11 year old Cairn terrier. Guaranteed to bring a smile to our faces everyday and a great excuse to get out and about and continue exploring the beautiful Limousin countryside.
