THE GATHERING

Are you up for a week that will involve both silence and mindful communication? Would you like to explore both stillness and movement? Movement in the stillness, stillness in the movement?

Would you like to open up to profound peace?

Are you ready to fall in love with meditation? Or at least give it a serious try?

Would you like to ignite your creativity without pressure to perform or produce?

Would you like to meet new and old friends?

And how about being rather than doing?

If you answered yes to many of these questions, I'd love to welcome you to this year's autumn gathering at the gorgeous retreat sanctuary In Sabina, in central Italy. 

 

This time I am teaming up with Grace Farmer, who will, among other things, teach her amazing creation SWEAT BODY, which I call 'spiritual aerobics' a fun, but intense dance-inspired workout, set to a kickass soundtrack. She'll also offer other movement-based explorations and deep dives.

 

Joining us is also Mexican-born, Italy-based ceramic artist Karla, who will guide us through a slow, sensual and meditative exploration of terracotta clay and its potential. 

A complete digital detox is very much encouraged, but not mandatory.

THE SPACE 

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. 

HOW TO GET HERE

From Rome the train to Stimigliano takes about 40 minutes. From there we can help organize taxis. 

It's also possible to travel by train to Torri in Sabina and walk from there.
