12:00 to 14:00 Lunch

Throughout the years, we have at times questioned whether or not to maintain buffet service at all meals. However, our experience, and also our deepest convictions, has shown that only the buffet has the ability to titillate and encourage visitors to discover new foods and a greater assortment of condiments. This formula has also been preferred because it allows each guest to create their own special dish, all in taking into account the activity they wish to do after their meal. At lunchtime, for example, one who is getting ready to receive a treatment will be happy to put together a light meal from the many choices available at the buffet. Conversely so, at the same meal, a visitor having just completed a session of aqua-aerobics and who will be going on a long hike in the afternoon, will be happy to refuel and all the while make more culinary discoveries! It is to preserve this flexibility and variety that the buffet has been maintained at breakfast and during the evening meal, even though table service is offered.

20:00 - 21:00 L'importance de développer son médecin intérieur

Guérir est un chemin C'est accepter, entres autres, de ressentir ses émotions. Le corps est un messager qui nous veut du bien! Comment puis-je mieux l'entendre? Comment vivre dans l'instant présent avec ce partenaire fabuleux qu'est notre corps? Guérir c'est vivre! Le corps représente le point de jonction de toutes nos parties: le psychisme, le mental, l'émotionnel, le noyau central et tous les sytèmes physiologiques. Il exprime l'harmonie ou ce qu'il y a de conflictuel en soi. C'est ainsi qu'une maladie devient le message et si ce message est pris en compte, la guérison et le bien-être peuvent s'installer. Tous les moyens qui nous ramènent au centre de nous-mêmes sont à considérer. Chacun doit choisir ceux vers lesquels va sa préférence. Seulement, la respiration et le silence sont les bases sans lesquelles le véritable bien-être peut advenir. Présenté par Francine Robert: pédagogue d'éveil du corps par le mouvement, la respiration, la méditation et la fasciathérapie MDB. Francine Robert s'intéresse au langage du corps depuis 1973. Yoga, shiatsu,rebirth,do-in, fasciathérapie ont fait partie de sa démarche professionnelle. Au fil des ans la réalité du corps, du vivant et du maintenant sont devenus pour elle l'essentiel d'une dynamique a partager par laquelle s'exprime la VITALITÉ, la SOLIDITÉ, la JOIE et la PRÉSENCE a soi. C'est cette passion des enseignements du *corps habité* qu'elle partage avec vous par des conférences sur des thèmes de Vie : l'Amour, la guérison, la Relation , le Chemin de Vie et les différents processus de retrouvailles avec soi-même. L'enseignement et la pratique du mouvement, comme outil de reconnaissance de soi. Des soins en fasciathérapie sont aussi disponibles pour ressentir la Vie plus en profondeur dans son propre corps et accélérer ou accompagner un processus d'auto-guérison.
