Education Universelle France is delighted to welcome you to the first international 16G Retreat Gathering on August 24th-28th 2018.

The retreat brings together people who have done a 16 Guidelines level 1 workshop and wish to explore the guidelines in different contexts and deepen their understanding and practice of the guidelines in daily life.

It is a chance to share experiences, build the 16G and the Universal Education for Compassion and Wisdom community and gain inspiration from what is going on in different parts of the world.

Facilitators from several countries: Argentina, Canada, Italy, UK, Spain and France will lead workshops and share their knowledge and ideas in a beautiful retreat center.

There is a choice of three 12 hour intensive workshops in the mornings and many shorter afternoon ones. Workshops will be in French, Spanish and English and translation will be available in one language for each workshop.
