Your Next Retreat

A journey of a thousand miles begins with a single transformational retreat.

I suspect that when I compiled this top 10 list, I short-circuited and fried several more-or-less essential brain cells. In my mid-fifties now, I try to avoid this sort of thing. I’m slightly worried that I haven’t got all that many functional brain cells left.

It was worth the loss though, as I miraculously managed to trim my list down from 37 to 10, and resisting fierce temptation, only included one wildly controversial tip, yours to download in pdf form by clicking on the link in the orange box below.

Top Ten Tips to Make Your Next Retreat Your Best Ever by Dr M Montagu

Thank you so much for at the same time subscribing to my Savoir Vivre Vignettes newsletter with insight-giving stories from my transformational retreats, both here in the south of France and online. I rarely send a newsletter out more than once a month, I’m definitely not going to drown you in emails!

You also get free access to my 7-part Journal Yourself Stressfree Online Retreat, as a series of emails, one which will land in your inbox every two days starting tomorrow. It’s a great stress-busting tool, whether you’re into writing or not. I have used it myself for years, and most of my retreat guests swear it changed their lives.

If you would like to see what past newsletters looked like in the past, just click on one or more of the pictures below:

Once you have read your Top Ten Tips, if you have found it useful, please buy me a cup of coffee! Although I LOVE writing, it took many, many cups of coffee to write and re-write this guide – I’d be ever so grateful.
