The place

Located in the hollow of a sunny valley in the Alpes de Haute Provence, at an altitude of a thousand meters and four kilometers from the nearest village, the place is immense and wild.
The quality of silence and the beauty of nature create perfect conditions for a harmonious and profound practice. The centuries-old beech and chestnut forest is a haven for walking and meditating. A pure torrent borders the property and transmits its vitality and energy to the valley. The vocation of the center is to receive groups from May to October.
