We are so excited to invite you to our first 'Inspired Living Retreat' in Italy. The theme for the week is 'Living in Harmony With Your Divine Nature and Purpose.' It will be a perfect blend of vacation and self development. Gentle movement, meditation and life empowerment classes will be held daily to help you connect on a deeper level with yourself. You'll learn powerful tools and processes that will help you to more consciously co-create a life you truly love. (No previous yoga or meditation background required) Excursions to Assisi and surrounding villages will enrich your Italian experience and during the day you'll have plenty of time to rest, explore or enjoy the company of new friends.
All experience levels are welcome, and participation in classes and excursions are completely voluntary. That means you can come to all classes and excursions or take some extra time for yourself to relax or explore Tuscany and Umbria on your own.
The villa is located approximately 3 miles from Collepepe (less than an hour from Assisi), a quiet location with panoramic views of the surrounding hills. The property is encircled by a large garden and equipped with an indoor and outdoor pool for your enjoyment. In front of the villa there is a large terrace with a expansive view of the countryside, where seating is available for outdoor dining. The property has also a billiard room, a small gym area equipped with weight training, exercise machines and a ping pong table.
Ten rooms are available (most have one queen bed) and can comfortably accomodate 18 people. You can immediately see the careful attention that went into decorating and keeping this magnificent place a preferred place to stay. Each of the 10 rooms comes complete with private bathroom.
Delicious, vegetarian food prepared by our kitchen team is part of the retreat experience, including breakfast, lunch and dinner with the exception of excursion days. On excursions meals are on your own. Expect organic (as much as possible) grown local fresh ingredients and a simple, delicious, Italian cuisine prepared with love that nurtures your body and soul. The menu is seasonal and could include dishes like pumpkin risotto, mediterranean chickpea salad, spinach and mushroom stuffed manicotti with pecorino that you are guaranteed to love with each bite. Alcohol will not be served during the retreat but participants who would enjoy a glass of 'vino italiano', are welcome to do so when we eat out.
The background of your retreat is the majestic landscape of Tuscany and Umbria, Italy. You will not only enjoy the perfect italian villa, but also the close proximity to beautiful historical towns like Assisi, Peruggia, San Giminiano, Orvieto or Todi, to name a few. Excursions may include a day trip to Assisi with a guided tour of the city of St. Francis and the Basilica as well as visits and hikes to nearby villages.
MEDITATION & LIFE EMPOWERMENT CLASSES
We are passionate about personal, professional and spiritual growth and believe that, equipped with the right tools, practices and holistic lifestyle habits, everyone can live an inspired and purpose driven life. Before breakfast we offer morning movement and meditation sessions. Throughout the day life empowerment classes and additional gatherings are held. Our retreats are a great starting point to deepen your spiritual practice and rekindle the fire and passion in your own heart to take the next steps towards the healthiest, happiest person you can possibly be. Whether that next step for you is creating better health, deepening your relationships, attaining financial stability or embarking on a new career - you'll learn foundational habits and tools that you can apply at home, long after the retreat is over.
