Retreats 2018

Open doors, open hearts

Moulin de Chaves is dedicated to fostering a welcoming and open-hearted refuge for all people to explore life-transforming practices and teachings.  We are committed to cultivating an awareness and appreciation of the value of diversity and to acknowledging the need to recognise and dissolve barriers that separate us from each other. We open our doors and hearts to all social identities including all races, classes, sexual orientations, gender identities, ages, abilities, cultures and ethnicities.

Yoga and Meditation

Gail Aylward and Martin Aylward
