|« Another year ends..||Genotype is the magic word! »|
Only a few boardmembers know of my dream of establishing a center in France (preferably in Auvergne or Midi-Pyrenees) where people can stay for holiday, for wellness, for nutritional advice, or all combined during their holiday, weekend, congress or whatever! Or just for pampering their worn out, stressed tortured bodies and minds.. Beneficial treatment like massage, sauna, hot-tub, and more delights in a healthy, safe haven in order to re-find and re-connect with themselves. A place to regenerate, rejuvenate, to enjoy the beauties of nature like hiking, rafting, swimming, just to find how awesome life is once you open your eyes and heart for the beauty around you.
A center where there is peace, stillness, gorgeous nature, nearby lakes, canyons, with good food, good company and silent and dark nights.. No noise nor light pollution. Just basic, simply enjoying the gifts of nature in its purest form..
All this I found in the mountain areas in France such as Tarn, Cantal and the Allier. I have lost my heart to the French ‘campagne’. With its tranquility, kindness of the locals, the time people have for eachother, the quality of caring deeply for eachother, and moreover the feeling of responsability for eachother. A quality we, working urbans, lost when moving into the cities in the course of time.. A quality so vital for staying healthy in body and mind and… a quality for keeping a society alive, tolerant, inspiring and worth living in..
My husband and I have this dream for a long time, in fact since we met, we knew we wanted to start an ‘entreprise’ for health and advice in a healthy environment, to have our own garden loaded with vegetables, fruittrees, to have our own waterwell, to eat eggs of our chickens, milk and cheese of our own goats and more… In fact we want to live as close as possible to nature and to live of the land. We want to be host and hostess for people seeking these same qualities to share with them.
In the past years we have been ‘estate-hunting’ from the Morvan, Bretagne, Pyrenees and recently we have spotted a farm in Tarn. Real estate properties ranging from expensive ready-to-move-in to less expensive, but in need of renovation to upgrade it to our needs. Too much money for us to afford, so we look for a farm to rent, to lease or hire-purchase.
I think it would be awesome to host a wellness farm to guide people to listen to their inner voice and see them leave again refreshed, with reloaded batteries.
A place where you can do culinary workshops, learning that cooking is more than opening a pizza box and put in the oven.. A place where one can do painting, carpentry, cheesemaking, breadbaking (of spelt of course!), spiritual courses, or just spend some time with friends to enjoy eachother’s company, to experience in essence what life is really about…
Perhaps a place where EU BTD/GTD gatherings annex culinary clinics can be held. My Hans is a cook by profession and well introduced in BTD and GTD cooking. So that is settled then!
Well, that is my dream and I sincerely hope this year my dream will be realized and that we can move to France for good.. I do keep visualizing and forwarding my thoughts into space..
Meantime I keep dreaming..
Cocky already in France in her dreams
crossing fingers here for you!
I read the message boards, but do not post; however, your desire to be in the Midi-Pyrenees caused me to let you know my daugher, son-in-law and 2 young Granddaughters live in Portet Sur Garonne, a village just outside Toulouse. They love the area and go to the mountains often.
They would love for you to have your dream come true, and would be clients!
I'm going there August 3 for 2 weeks.
Houston, Texas, USA
My Mom's family is French descent and we have visited all over that gorgeous country 5 times since 2003! I YEARN to be able to go and stay for about 3 months each year. My soul feels connected to the people and land and I get extremely depressed when we have to leave!
I have followed the BTDiet for 2 years.
I am rooting heartily for you and your husband to be very successful in your venture!!!!! I promise to come and patronize! a bientot, Cajun
