AN ODE TO BEING
— A Gathering for Mindfulness, Creativity & Connection
October 27th - November 3rd 2024, In Sabina, in the heart of Italy
Are you up for a week of silence and of mindful communication? Would you like to experience both stillness and movement? Movement in the stillness, stillness in the movement?
Would you like to open up to deep joy, to profound peace?
Are you ready to fall in love with meditation?
To explore your creativity without pressure to perform or produce?
Would you like to meet new and old friends?
How about being rather than doing?
If this sounds like your thing, I'd love to welcome you to this year's autumn gathering at the gorgeous retreat sanctuary In Sabina, in central Italy.
I am once again teaming up with the Italian textile artist Chiara Leto to combine physical movement with meditation, creativity and nature.
And I am bringing along Grace Farmer, who will, among other things, teach her creation SWEAT BODY, which I call 'spiritual aerobics' to a killer soundtrack.
A complete digital detox is very much encouraged.

In Sabina is a gorgeous retreat sanctuary, in the Sabine Hills. This beautiful area of unspoilt nature, a mere forty minutes north of Rome, is one of Italy's best kept secrets.
And In Sabina is a haven of peace, sprawled over acres of land. The old farm house turned retreat centre offers rustic and comfy accommodation. There's a pool, a little library, and an indoor yoga shala. If weather allows, we'll eat our meals outside on a terrace looking out over the soft hills.
There's also a big outdoor yoga deck which is reached through a sweet walk through a bamboo grove. Hopefully it will be warm enough to practice there from time to time (or all the time :)
At In Sabina there's also a pool and many quirky spots dotted around the property where one can curl up with a book or a journal, or just do nothing.
