What we're about

The fabulous nature of this Expat group is it's wonderful diversity!

You’ll meet a stimulating, friendly mix, in age, sex, backgrounds and motivation for being here. These global travellers remember well their first trepid steps in a new country, so know you’ll find a warm welcome and a source of ‘local knowledge’ and perhaps even make new lifetime friends.

Gatherings are organised on a regular/irregular basis to meet old and new friends alike, drinks, dinners, walks, cycling, skiing, etc, - we’re always open for new ideas.

The emphasis being on FUN, friendship, activities and knowledge resource!

We'd like to hear about the type of activities and events you'd like to get involved with? Could be just as simple as a pub quiz, a river picnic, or a great venue you'd like to share with the group, host a BBQ or dinner (paid for and organised by participating members)

Look forward to meeting/hearing from you

Online Guided Meditation and introduction to "Energy Healing"

Would you like to learn tools to stay healthy? Monday, December 7th: 9.30am-10.30am -Online Guided meditation and learn how to feel "energy". Passcode given on registration. Relax with some lovely friends and Beverley Holt, Founder of Riviera Reiki. Please bring an open mind and questions. You will receive a guided meditation and learn how to feel "energy". No experience necessary for either. We will also discuss the fourth Reiki principal: "Just for today I will be grateful for my many blessings". Our intention is to get to know one another, support each other and re-build our community with LOVE. Who will benefit from this talk? Everyone, especially those who have suffered trauma, stress, anxiety, depression and poor health. Also, people who are well and choose to stay well. People who are just curious. Reiki is a Japanese word for Universal Life Force Energy-the energy of unconditional love. It is an ancient "hands-on" healing art which has been around since the beginning of time. It is safe and never causes harm. The only side-effect is improved health and happiness. You sit in a chair, fully clothed, or lie on a Reiki table. The Reiki practitioner will place their hands on or just above your body. As the energy passes through, it could affect any of your 5 senses. You may feel heat, cold, tingling, visualise something, hear something or smell or taste something. Or you may just feel that nothing has happened and that's ok. The healing takes place regardless. Many people say that they don't care how it works. They are happy to feel better. It helps to calm and relax the mind and promote self-healing. Reiki can also be given at a distance, which has been very popular during lockdown.

Social Connection amidst Physical Distancing

Online event

Despite our confinement measures being lifted here in France, I'm being cautious about in-person gatherings, plus the majority of our regular attendees join in from outside of France, so I am continuing these online events indefinitely. As one of our repeat attendees stated: "I always leave these events feeling so much better!". Come & meet others from around the world every Wednesday. * This event is open to worldwide participants--anyone, anywhere looking for an uplifting exchange during these uncertain times.
