JB Dulac began her career as an attorney in one of the world's largest law firms, but after traveling around the world on sabbatical for two years, she gravitated inexorably toward mindfulness and meditation practices. She lived in a Tibetan Buddhist monastery in Nepal and sailed her boat across the Atlantic Ocean from Europe to the Caribbean. She returned to Maine to create Santosha on the Kennebec, where she lives with her faithful sailor dog, Pamplemousse. A longtime yogi, she is certified to teach through the loving ashram at Shambhava Yoga Konalani in Kona, Hawaii.

"The dream yoga & writing retreat in gorgeous Maine "
I had the most wonderful week at Santosha on the Kennebec with JB. With both powerful and restorative yoga on offer, time to write and daily prompts, epic views and even better food this was the perfect COVID-safe week away from the city. Socially distanced yoga made for a terrific experience flowing in a safe way. With epic day trips from hikes to foraging to trail running it was a brilliant end to end retreat and experience. For any dog lovers the resident pup Pamplemousse will never turn down a play session or a walk in the woods. I will be back and cannot recommend Santosha on the Kennebec highly enough! I learnt so much and met some great yogis and writers along the way. Thank you JB & team!

"This retreat went far above & beyond any expectations I had."
I was welcomed by JennyBess Dulac with such generosity and kindness. I appreciate all the wisdom she shared with me, she took the time to teach me the beginning principals and philosophy of yoga and meditation. JennyBess Dulac was a thoughtful and supportive listener to everything I said without any judgement. She gave me such positive feedback and encouragement on my writing, that I continued to write, where in the past I would have stopped at the very beginning. JennyBass Dulac provided delicious, nourishing home-cooked meals for me, three times a day, every day. She is an extraordinary and wonderful person, whom I am so glad I had the opportunity to meet. This retreat went far above and beyond any expectations I had. I arrived completely burnt-out, stressed out and exhausted. I left refreshed, peaceful and rejuvenated. JennyBess Dulac provided a place of restoration and healing.
