Individual Retreats

You may only have a week-end to spare or you may be looking for a longer stay of two to three months - somewhere with a difference.

Be it for:

  • Recovery and recuperation
  • Peace and tranquillity
  • Stillness in transition
  • Insight and transformation
  • Inspiration and commitment

Your time here will be exceptional.  With as much freedom as you like, you may explore the mountains, experience new activities, focus on a particular project or simply ‘do’ nothing.  It is really up to you.  The in-house expertise is also there to assist you in designing the most rewarding stay at Lauvitel Lodge – one that you will carry with you beyond the hills and rivers of the Oisans valley.


Energetics draws on a diversity of practices and traditions which focus on the alignment and balancing of energy.

Be it for:

  • The art of healing
  • Relaxation and revitalization
  • The freedom to play full out
  • Renewing  relationships
  • As a catalyst to creativity

Energetics opens the pathway to healthier, happier and more inspired living.   By focusing attention on those things that come naturally, (and hence we tend to ignore) it is possible to tap into the power of our conscious minds in alignment with our physical being.  This experiential learning can be offered individually, in couples or in groups. It can be done in the serenity of moving meditation; in the joyful fun of playing games; or in the face of physical challenge.  In other words, it is designed to suit you.


Being accompanied by a coach through any transition in life is like drinking clear water when you are thirsty.

Be it for:

  • Living in the unknown
  • Finding your own voice
  • Exploring possibilities
  • Rejoicing in connection
  • Creating your contribution

Coaching with Caroline will transform your life.  Creating a time and space that is just for you, there is the experience of coming home to self.  From there, it is possible to bring more of who you are into what you do, be it with your colleagues at work, with your family at home or in your leisure pursuits.  By holding you fiercely in her loving presence you will find yourself moving past those things that get in your way and gradually stepping into your own magnificence.
