Single retreats

Our beautiful house in the north east of France has five guest rooms for people who would like to take some time out – a few days, a week or longer – in order to take a close look at recurring themes, or in order to work a specific issue.

During our daily one-on-one sessions we will take a deep look at those themes. You will also be provided with tools for in-depth exercises.

Byron Katie

Individual intensives are suitable for both beginners and advanced practitioners of The Work. For some people it works well to combine The Work with relaxation time, a walk in the woods or meditation. Others are happy to continue doing The Work in between sessions. Both are equally valuable. There is no recipe that is applicable to everyone.

Daily practice

Morning session with Aafke: from 9.30 to 11.30 AM
Afternoon session with Aafke: from 14.30 to 16.00 PM


The price of an individual intensive amounts to 225 euros per day (including coffee, tea and fruit, and excluding meals and accommodation). During the intensive, you may stay in the house, on the campsite or in a B&B nearby. In case you prefer to stay in one of our guest-rooms, the costs for accommodation and meals are 60 Euros per day.

Aafke Satyananda has a deep understanding of The Work of Byron Katie. She is truly living The Work, and she has supported me tremendously, especially in detecting limiting beliefs, underlying fears and blind spots. The retreats in her lovely house in France are a real treat!
