Bonjour! We are so thrilled to be offering a very unique Murmuration this time in Burgundy, France.

Here you will get to awaken to what you want next in your life supported by a dynamic cohort of women and guided by our team of amazing female coaches and facilitators.
For this Murmuration we are excited to partner with Suffolk Yoga’s Julia Fairbrother who will be enhancing the experience with daily yoga practice and local hikes that will further inspire us to connect to ourselves and nature as we discern the next chapters of our life’s work.
Why France? Well – why not!!! And we have had significant requests for a Murmuration experience from our European friends, colleagues, and networks. Please read on to learn what you need to know and to reserve your spot today!
During our time together, you will be able to explore….

And discover answers that are beautiful and true to you while getting you into action to bring into fruition what it is you truly want next in your life.

Vergécosse is a most tasteful and unique courtyard development in the pretty village of Vergisson close to Mâcon in Southern Burgundy. It comprises La Forge, La Croix, and La Roche homes with many room options available.
Set in a peaceful location on the edge of the village with the most stunning views of La Roche de Solutré, the properties have been carefully restored using natural stone and timber with much of the original oak roof structure exposed from within.
Each house has its own south-facing terrace where true outdoor living can be enjoyed over the summer months.
Enjoy a dip in the outdoor pool or walk in the vineyard. When not experiencing the Murmuartion curriculum, relax with a book or capture the moment with your camera. Taste the wine and savour the local food.

Lucy Bethell Reynolds
It was a few years ago, in Kenya, that I first got the notion of Murmuration off the ground. After years of working individually with clients seeking to create a meaningful next chapter in their lives, I had the idea that such a journey might be more powerful and fun done in a cohort of like-minded women. We called it “Balance in the Wild,” and it proved the potential. Since then, I’ve been refining it and waiting for COVID to release it’s grip enough for us to participate in a deep, in-real-life experience.
In pursuit of what they truly want to do next in their lives, the biggest obstacle that women face are the many “shoulds” imposed by society and family-of-origin expectations. Often, these “shoulds” are unconsciously carried as driving forces. Yet, when voiced by others within a group setting, these “shoulds” are exposed as limitations and rendered less powerful. That’s when Murmuration starts to happen.
I would love to have you join us at one of our many Murmuration retreats if you are searching for what’s next in your life’s journey. I can promise you it will be transformational in many ways. We will also have a great deal of fun while in beautiful places around the world. -Lucy

I believe that every woman deserves to be invigorated by her path and proud of her impact. And, I believe that finding a way forward that is both uniquely true and beautiful to you can oftentimes be elusive. (Enter your ‘shoulds’ and self doubt here). Figuring out what’s next can be significantly clearer (and wayyy more fun) when you engage with powerful tools and are buoyed by the love and support of other women.
When Lucy asked me to join her in launching Murmuration my response was “oh heck yea!” Lucy and I have worked together for several years – both in non-profit endeavors and as a coach-client dyad. The content she has crafted is phenomenal and the way she engages with clients is both uplifting and effective.
I hope you will join us on this journey — wherever you might currently find yourself… You will find exceptional content, inspiring people and a new sense of clarity, purpose and fun. -Kelley
What’s the buzz on Murmuration?
It is hard to distill down what I enjoyed most about this experience. I think the magic really existed in the combination of all the elements. The natural setting, the small group dynamics, the trust formed, each session content building on the last. All of this helped to bring authenticity to the experience and allowed for space for vulnerable moments that we all needed.
I loved the community of interesting women, the time for self-reflection, the delicious meals and the time spent in nature.
All the workshop elements worked well together to give me an overview of my situation & how/what I want to take forward. It was good to experience different sessions to see what works for the individual e.g visualization, discussing with others, time on my own.
I appreciated the work that forced us to look to our past for inspiration for the future.
Overall this experience was the highlight of my year. I could not feel more lucky to have been a part of this experience. I talk about it often and glow about what a wonderful and magical time it was. It was a treasured experience and a real gift to myself which I rarely do. Thank you so much for putting it all together, especially for women who could use time for themselves.
An incredible four days in an amazing place where you experience everything the marketing tells you & more! Definitely worth doing, to take time out to re-evaluate & embrace some selfcare.
I really loved it and found it a very important and special journey to go on. I loved meeting the women on it and loved going through the process. Thank you!!
