“La Bulle de Repos” means the bubble of rest.
Feeling better already?
The Bulle de Repos is not just a retreat centre specialised in burnout prevention and management in Creuse; it is also a European network of Sophrologists specifically trained to be able to help with this syndrome so that you can find someone near you.
If you have a busy life, whether you are just starting to feel the pressure of it all or are in full-blown burnout and are looking for a place to stop and recharge while learning transformational techniques to be at the top of your game, this is for you!
Our clients have a very full life, sometimes too full, and they feel the pressure. Some already are in burnout and we help them on the way to recovery. Others feel overwhelmed and in need of rest, a space to stop and recharge, far away from it all. Some feel great but wish to learn how to better manage stress and energy to be even more efficient. All of them come to us to rest, recharge and go away with practical tools to feel better everyday
When pressure builds up, stress is getting harder to keep under control and fatigue kicks in, it is time to take a break.
Burnout, what is happening to me?
Burnout is not depression; it is not mid-life crisis. Burnout is a long-term severe physical, mental and emotional fatigue caused by excessive and prolonged overload. You have been through too much for too long. One day, your body switches the “off” button. In most cases, you collapse in a heap or find you are physically unable get up in the morning. After that, you need about 12 months to recover, feeling unable to do anything at all, not even thinking clearly, you are physically, mentally and emotionally exhausted all the time. Recovering does not happen overnight nor does it happen by itself. You need rest as well as a strategy and professional help.
A centre at the heart of Creuse
Florence, sophrologist and retreat leader is originally from Creuse and she has chosen to establish the centre there, finding it an ideal spot for peace and rest, far from the noise of the city, in unspoilt nature, with calm, pure air and silence.
Her vision of the Bulle de Repos is a place where you can disconnect from the hustle and bustle of everyday life to better reconnect with yourself, in peace and quiet. A place where you can go back to basics: pure air, silence, a sanctuary. A place to rest, recover, rebuild.
What’s with the bubbles?
La Bulle de Repos means The Bubble of Rest. People have told us that just hearing the name makes them feel better! We are delighted to hear it but the name is just a start! Wait till you try our programmes!
So yes, we are a bit “bubble-mad”, have you noticed? It all started years ago, when Florence created a Sophrology exercise with bubbles. Basically, it is about imagining that each time you breathe out, you breathe out dark bubbles. And each time you breathe in, you imagine you are breathing in golden bubbles. A little bit of body spring cleaning, fun-style! It has become her signature exercise and we will make sure you try it out when you come and visit.
A bubble is also a place where you can get away from the world for a while and feel safe and in peace and quiet. A space of freedom and rest. In French “to bulle” even means to do nothing and rest.
So we felt this illustrated very well what we are trying to do here: a bit more light, lightness, comfort and peace….
