ABOUT LA VIE EST BELLE

La Vie Est Belle is a karma stay and educational space for people to experience the outer and inner nature through experiential activities such as meditation, yoga, nature immersion, transforming art creation, leading a sharing autonomy life. We have daily activities and monthly retreats/courses and teacher training relating to the concept.

Karma Stay is a “small school of selfless service”, an experiment in the joy of giving. With volunteers, we created an ecosystem of generosity-projects that move from transaction to trust, from self-oriented isolation to shared commitment, and from fear of scarcity to celebration of abundance. All volunteers-run, our projects create external change while keeping the focus on inner transformation.
