In order to create proper conditions for passing on knowledge, for teaching, for treatment and for healing, it is important for the environment to be perfectly biodynamic.
The location takes the patient away from his usual environment.
The patient must feel comfortable and as well as possible for the treatment to run smoothly.
The place must foster Stillness (cf. "keywords") between nature, practitioners and patients but also every person participating in the seminary.
It needs to offer different spaces in order for the patient and the practitioner to be able to pick the most fitting one for the work intended.
According to the number of participants and the type of work, we propose two locations, two healing spots !
Là-haut "Up above"
It’s an old stone house enlarged by a wood extension, 1200m high surrounded by a majestic landscape in the "Diois”, area named after the town of Die, in the North of Drôme, in the south-east of France.
The place is simple and precious for it puts us in touch with our very nature. It’s at the end of the road, up in the mountain, bringing us closer to awareness.
Seasons show their colors and the pathways are many and diverse to let us enjoy their tints and fragrances; Wildlife is present but discreet.
The perfect setting to address health with a great peace of mind.
Up there, we don’t host groups of more than 10 people.
We insist on preserving intimacy in this special place to tackle very sensitive, very deep, maybe inexpressible issues.
=> For treatments (1 to 4 patients)
=> Therapeutic workshops for small groups (6 people top)
=> Training and seminaries up to 10 people
Part of a small hamlet formed quasi-exclusively of self-built wood houses (populated by as many children as grown-ups), la Salamandre is a large and beautiful farmhouse inn. Besides the comfortable bedrooms and the large dining room, it’s got a 80m2 work space, a big tepee outside surrounded by the farm’s cultivated land.
Florence Lejeune and Luc Bauer follow the precepts of holistic farming. They cultivate fruits, vegetables and cereals, and raise with love five children, sheeps, chickens and pigs. They cook delicious organic food and ancestral drinks.
They do take really good care of their hosts.
=> For training, workshops and seminaries of more than 10 people.
