"Spending time with you and others in the Center for Happiness community "opens" me up, lets in fresh air, new ideas, as well as reminding me of things I know intellectually but have forgotten to put into practice.
It is a very accepting community."

Essential Happiness Retreat
With Laura Lavigne
Beauty. Adventure. Sweetness. Transformation.
I invite you to join me in a magical place. An island unknown to most Americans yet beloved by the French.
France, in the tropics.
There I will share with you my life transforming tools. We will learn, grow, connect, play, re-discover and of course... eat delicious food.
I have room for eight people to join me on this very, very special Retreat.
"I came to the Retreat in a state of mind in which I pretty much felt as is my life was over an that I could not possibly find my way out of the darkness. I am heading home tomorrow feeling as if I have found myself and I am so hopeful
that I can have an incredible rest of my life."
"I now know how to proceed. New me, new ways, no more untrue stories."
