CREATIVE MINDFUL TOURS

The crowd is his element, as the air is that of birds and water of fishes. His passion and his profession are to become one flesh with the crowd. For the perfect flâneur, for the passionate spectator, it is an immense joy to set up house in the heart of the multitude, amid the ebb and flow of movement, in the midst of the fugitive and the infinite. To be away from home and yet to feel oneself everywhere at home; to see the world, to be at the centre of the world, and yet to remain hidden from the world
— Charles Baudelaire

THE ART OF OBSERVING 

What are LE FLANEUR RETREATS?

O B S E R V E + E X P L O R E + C R E A T E

 

Le Flaneur Retreats are based on the simple idea of Observing.  Taking time to slow down, step back and get in tune with yourself and your surroundings, noticing all the moments as they unfold.  Learning to observe with all your senses to live a more healthier, richer, fuller life. Set in beautiful, culturally rich Urban landscapes around the world, where you can relax, nourish creativity and become inspired. 

Learn to being a witness, not only to yourself but to the people you cross paths with on the streets,  the spaces that you encompass, the sounds , the light, the shadows,  the patterns, the inhales and the exhales. Being open to finding beauty and Art in the places you least expect it.  

  Starting within, it begins with you.  Observing the mind and the body through  Meditation and Yoga practice. Once we have grounded and found our base , we can expand outward. Seeing the world as it is , with eyes wide open.   

These retreats will bring a focus to the Arts of all forms.  Not only finding art in our everyday but surrounding ourselves with it.  As observers of life we all have a way of capturing , processing and expressing what we see. We are all artists and have a vision with something to say.  

My mission is not only to awaken the artist within by inspiring and nourishing your own creativity and desires but also be immersed, informed and  be inspired by the local Artists, Musicians, Dancers, Artisans.  Getting to know the culture and the rituals that these Vibrant Urban spaces can provide. 

On our exploration , lets us not forget about the amazing sense of smell and taste. These retreats will not only celebrate food and drink as a art, but also as important fuel for our bodies. Eating  healthy, locally home grown food.  You will be able to enjoy fresh coffee straight from the roasters themselves, bread baked that very morning, fresh fruit drinks from the trees that you will be relaxing under...

And finally, it's about gathering as a community. Coming together and making connections. Especially in Urban spaces we are reminded that we are not alone.  We share the space and energy with others.  It's finding that sweet balance between being the spectator of life and immersing yourself into the crowd.  

Another mission is to proudly support each community that we will encompass. Informing you on the history, culture, arts, that are unique to that place.  Incorporating the locals into the adventures whenever possible and giving back to these urban landscapes in order to be able to enjoy them for years to come.

This invitation goes out to you, the observers of life. There is no limits or barriers to who can attend. If you have a interest in exploring the arts, a holistic life, or just want to chill and relax,  this is for you. If you are a artist seeking focus and a place to inspire you, then come along.  If you are a person who is just curious on all the above and life...and just wanting to slow down, tune in to your desires, goals, dreams, then there is room for you as well.

My hopes for these adventures is too provide a space for people to let go, relax, create, and connect.  It's always been my mission in life to live my dreams and passions and in doing so want to inspire others to do the same. I can't wait for you to join me on this journey....
