A Day at the Sentiers du Bivouac
There are so many things that you will experience in the Sentiers du Bivouac's events... Besides the fact that you will discover a particular place with its charming secrets, some intense moments are awaiting for you, in a nice energy of group.
It's very important to be able to be on you own, to find some rest and peace at your own rythm...Flexibility is the rule.
However, I can give you an idea about what could your days at The Sentiers du Bivouac look like...
The first day begins with a walk to the bivouac camp, around one hour and a half, over flat paths all along the river. Then, settings in the camp (who will be the same during all the stay).
Exemples for a stay of a few days :
1st day :
- Introduction Circle and "Baptism" in the river
- Offers at the little Altar in the camp
- Enjoying the river and clay baths
- Night-evening around the firecamp
2nd day :

- Shaman inner trip at the sound of the shaman drums
- Night-Evening with dances and songs
Following Days :
- Cooperative games
- Mandalas of stones and woods (Land Art)
- Natural paintings with ochres
- Getting on the top of the hill for a meditation with spirits of the air
- Contact with forest spirits and water spirits
- "Pantheistic" rite at the "Temple"
Pics of a Day among others...
The most important matter in order to have a successfull day in the Nature, is the Atmosphere...
First, we met the morning firecamp with the sound of drum and flute.
For the most courageous ones, the bath in the river is a shamanic way of life for a strong communion able to wake us in a gorgeous way !
And happily the fire will warm us so gently just after...
A little meditation will launch the day then... after a good breakfast !
And after, the door is wide open for all the magics of the Vanson area...We set the first activities, paying attention to the needs of the group but opened too to the resonance with the huge natural domain which surronds us.
A day at the Sentiers du Bivouac, it's almost a Feast Day !
Soft, intimate, contemplative and joyful celebration, welcomed with a heart of child and the enthusiasm for all the happiness of the nature and the sharing !
Walks, strolls, hiking, may happens whenever... Excitements of discovery, including various places off the beaten tracks, and many surprises who may surge from the kingdoms of forest, springs, canyons, between sky, air, fire and Mother-Earth with so much presences that we can feel, often...
...And there comes the time of Clay Bath, Ochres paintings, a little touch of merry madness for unforgettable sequences...
....The feeling toward Nature and its strong spirit is a thing of joy and inspiration, the better way to recharge one's battery...
It's like a pagan call, that the body can easily recognize. We speak to the trees, to the wind, to the sky in a silent pray who connect us to an intimate complicity with the nature, so strong, fresh and always reliable...
The Communion with the water always remains during the stay...
There comes the end of the day...The hour becomes convenient to the relaxation, listening, sweetness...
We do the cooking, we share massages, and get ready to enter in the huge space of the evening, watching for the stars with drums, silences, sound of the fire, and the joy of sharing such precious moments...
