Discovering Southwest France
After many years of working in the holistic health industry, building wellness plans for clients, teaching students, building curriculum, and mentoring new business owners, Bianca Church was ready to expand. She had recently been on vacation with her husband to South West France (following Tom’s interest in Templar and Cistercian history). They found something even more precious; the magic of the Perigord in the Dordogne region of South West France — and three special people who introduced them to the community and to life in France. This is where Learn, Eat, and Be Well was born.
Excellent Food & Community Living in Condat-sur-Vezere
Bianca found the food to be so flavourful that it was indescribable — close to nature, good quality, and as unspoiled by industrial farming methods as possible. After spending 3 weeks there, she never wanted to leave. Afterwards, every holiday was back to the same village, starting with a small group of friends that soon expanded to a community, and eventually became just like home.
That village was Condat-sur-Vezere, in the Black Perigord of the Dordogne region. Here the Coly and the Vezere rivers meet. As the relationships Tom and Bianca found there grew, so did their connection to the community. Their time in Condat-sur-Vezere allowed them to understand the French culture, the impeccable quality of the food, and the sense of community. Bianca knew that she had to share this experience with like-minded people. She wanted other holistic nutritionists and those who seek optimum wellness to see first hand how a dedication to quality food–and community–are the foundations of good health.
