Follow Your Dreams

Iyan and Claude first introduced this retreat workshop in The Netherlands, then in France and in Thailand. This year, we are offering this retreat in Bali.

For different reasons, many of us simple human beings visiting this planet for a short period of time have difficulties to imagine living our lives to its fullest, often because we don’t really know what this actually means.

This retreat/workshop is designed to discover the hidden passions within, to draft a fresh road map and to learn how to reach our most valuable dreams.

Claude Chouinard  |  workshop leader
Reaching dreams is not new to Claude Chouinard; over the years he has set many goals and has developed ways to achieve them. "It is not so complicated, it is a matter of knowing what we truly want and believing in the process," said Claude.

Claude's journey on the holistic path has its beginning when he lived with Buddhist monks in Thailand and traveled throughout India as a spiritual pilgrim in 1992. Upon returning to his home in Canada in 1993, Claude co-created and led exciting adventure travel experiences throughout Asia, Thailand, Indonesia, India and Central Asia incorporating meditation, rituals and holistic practice.

One of Claude’s dreams was to create a retreat centre and make a difference in other people’s lives and to remain faithful to the concept of letting everyone follow their own path in a simple and non-dogmatic way. Today ONEWORLD Retreats has grown to be the leader in holistic retreats in Bali. It all started with a dream! Read more about Claude
