"This year, more than ever, we are faced with dramatic shifts throughout the world. Many people feel powerless, but every small, inspired action makes a difference in creating a better, more peaceful and harmonious world," Debra said. Debra Moffitt will be joined by two co-teachers. Alex Inchbald is an extreme artist and change agent, who is not only an inspired painter, he also works with international organizations to effect changes in the world. Nathalie Doswald is a certified yoga teacher, and author of the forth-coming book, "Yoga Fables" soon to be released by Findhorn Press. Nathalie was an environmental scientist before teaching yoga.
The rivers, mountains, and purity of the place regenerated and renewed me and I want to share the natural beauty with others.” Debra’s French Alps Writing retreat counted as one of The Write Life’s “Incredible Retreats to Attend in 2015.” Debra’s non-sectarian retreats encourage people to connect with their own inner wisdom through simple writing practices that encourage self-awareness. Beginners are welcome and no prior experience with writing, yoga, or music are required.

Debra teaches writing for self-discovery and greater clarity. Muni Natarajan, a yoga and meditation teacher in Charleston, South Carolina, will teach gentle yoga accessible to beginners.

Luca Giugno, a professional jazz musician and music teacher in Locarno, Switzerland will lead the group in expression through music.
