Going deeper

Experiences for

There is a calling.

In your heart, in mine - it is a longing.

For reconnection, for authenticity, and for slowing down.

For clarity, purpose, and meaningful living.


There is an answering:

From stories, myths, and archetypes.

From animals, plants, rivers and mountains, guides of many forms and shapes.

From embodied practices, handwritten letters, ancient songs, and genuine presence.


And there is you,

and there is me,

and all the threads we can weave together to create a deep and meaning-full life.

I am Francine, and I am happy that you are stopping by. My work comes from a deep desire to reconnect and be grounded; it embraces change, honors transformation, and calls for an exploration of what is beneath the surface. It is fluid and takes many shapes: writing, art, storytelling, embodied practices - always going in the same direction, deeper into ourselves.

Everything you will find here is a supportive process for you to connect with Veritas - truth, or nature of things - in your life-journey.

I look forward to walking on this path with you.

Francine Bonjour, Francine Bonjour-Carter
