Sans Pareil Sessions – ‘Giving life’

Join us as we explore ‘Giving life’. This is the work of each of our lives, our fruit to pass on.

Sergio and Elizabeth facilitate weekly Sessions at Sans Pareil Retreat Centre in Hout Bay. The spacious meeting space has rustic décor, a café-style conversation area, and a ring of couches for the input.
