Retreats are not just 'holidays'. They are an opportunity to deepen your awareness of yourself, other people, and the world around you. They give you space to clarify what is essential in your life. And as such, a retreat can be a challenging, life changing experience.
All the great spiritual traditions are about discovering ourselves in ways that help us to grow in happiness, love and awareness.

Sangha Retreat is located in Bourganeuf, Creuse

Lac de Vassivière, only 5 minutes away it is surrounded by more than 19,000 acres of land of ecological or natural interest. This huge area presents the full range of typical landscapes; characteristic peat bog, wetland, heath and forest. It is the sources of many of the streams and rivers that flow from the region.
The climate is heavily influenced by the elevated, inland location.
Milevaches winters are cold with snowfalls heavy enough for some winter sports. Spring is generally cool and wet, and summer is warm and pleasant, albeit with occasional fierce thunderstorms. Autumn often brings a period of considerable sun and warmth.
Why are there so many castles in Limousin ?
Simply because it was a coveted region, caught between the dukes of Aquitaine and the kings of France. Most of these castles were built in the 11th century, then modified and remodelled. Come and explore this exciting area.
