I invite you to retreat with in me in Tuscany this fall. To connect with the land, to savor lovingly prepared meals from local farms and ancient olive groves. I invite you to settle into your skin and to lean into practice anchored in story. To make daily ceremony, to move into stillness and to let your personal stories emerge.
Collectively we will savor twice daily practice with a half day set aside for excursions. Through story- telling, journaling, yoga, movement and meditation practice we will weave our personal stories into the ancient ones that hold us all. We'll explore archetypes and embodiment work to attune to the pleasure that is a gentle breeze, a ripened tomato, a fire, and the simplicity of good company.
This is a retreat into the simple pleasures of life, an invitation to reconnect with the ground beneath our feet, and the bounty of the earth that holds us.
Seperate from your day to day, enter the liminal space of creativity, and re-emerge more deeply connected to yourself and the larger sphere that holds you.
The main house is a magnificent 16th century construction. The floors, stairs, plasterwork, paint and vaults have all been renovated to preserve the unique radiant character of the environment rich in color and vibrant in identity. The names of each of the bedrooms make a reference to elements of the classical Italian theater.
The rooms are each unique with a lovely history, lovers names carved into a wall, 18th century art, and more.
