Toulouse 2024

june 5-9


How can I overcome the imposter syndrome?

What is my value and impact? 

How can I be confident and ask for my worth?

Maybe it’s time to change the script. 

What is your story

How to change your story

How to communicate your story

The most important influence on your life is the story you tell yourself about who you are. 


Explore your inner narrative. 
Your life is a story ready to be told. 

Through self-reflection and workshops with experts, we will hone in on your narrative, celebrating how it influences you and where it could lead, and together, we’ll start a new and exciting chapter.

your location

L'Ostales is located in Lafrancaise and is a haven to nurture your body and your mind. 


Steeped in its rich heritage, the manor house and organic fruit-growing farm are nestled on 6 hectares of orchards and forests on the Quercy hillside, north of Toulouse. A genuine eco-lodge, a link between the past and the future, its history and its spirit serving your well-being.

Loved the location and people. Perfect opportunity to reflect and consider the next steps, both professionally and in my private life.

The retreat in Ibiza was so deeply nourishing. The food, qigong, meditations workshops, and all the one to one sessions. The team went above and beyond. What I have taken back home with me is a new found enthusiasm for what I want to move forward in my life and work.

Raj, Simone and Michelle were so knowledgeable and held the space for each of us with so much care and integrity. I gained so many insights and tools that I cannot wait to apply
to my life. So a super big thank you ladies and I look forward to more.

Mayfly Maven was a truly soul searching experience. From the meditation and nutrition to workshops focussing on being the best version of ourselves. I came away energised and excited to start implementing some of the things I had learnt. The retreat was in a beautiful location where I got to be inspired by the team who made our stay so comfortable and fun, as well as meeting and making some amazing new friends.
Thank you Mayfly Maven.

Cultural Activities



Our core team will take time to uncover your story, write your script and unlock opportunities to share and own that story.

Our communications lead guides you on how to effectively share your story and design your narrative to attract PR and media. 



We will tap into our own personal mission and vision and convert this story into actionable next steps to make your story a reality.


masterclasses & workshops

So what will you experience during our five-day retreat in Marrakech?

For a holistic reset, we lay the foundation with daily meditation, nutrition and yoga practice. 


This is complemented by focused morning workshops that unlock your barriers and set goals for the future. Participants will have the opportunity to take part in self-reflection with Simone, communications with Victoria and the Mastermind masterclass with Raj. This is the last workshop on our retreats, and there’s a reason that it’s the big finale.


We round this out with 1-2-1 coaching using the MSA and hypnosis (deep relaxation) tools, as well as feedback and takeaways.


As if that is not enough, we also have activities for you to explore and try, like Qigong!
