Invitation

Charisse Louw invites you to reflect on yourself and your story. Through gentle movement, meditation and writing practices you will gain insight into your life and discover how to re-imagine your story. Using the gorgeous natural setting of Corsica as an opportunity to ground and inspire, we will embark on a journey of self-discovery and transformation. This is the perfect time and space to meet yourself face to face and gently fall in love with what you see. The most important thing you can do with your life is to love it so you can really live it!

Benefits

Return to your life invigorated with healing methods that can be easily incorporated into your daily schedule. Experience the power of shaking, dancing, breath and meditation to shift your perception and tap you into energy & creative living. You will write a personal account of your own story, you may develop into memoir or keep as the secret book of your heart. This will serve as a guide and key to understanding your own soul for years to come. Come as you are and leave as you long to be — in harmony with yourself and the world.
