martine batchelor,

Each of the Tricycle Retreats has its own flavor. Martine Batchelor’s is probably the most personable—we even get to meet her cat and have a look at the view from here terrace at her home in South of France—red-tile roofs as far as the eye can see (Martine and husband, Stephen, live just outside Bordeaux). All this before we settle in to a clear and accessible teaching on the fundamentals of meditation. What I especially like is that Martine begins with the basics—always a great way to open a retreat. Later, she’ll explain how the type of meditation she teaches can work to change our habits at a fundamental level. You can check out the first teaching for free here.
