The retreat takes place at marvelous La Rosa Dei 4 Venti in Puglia, an ancient 17th century Monastery and “Masseria” (farmhouse), located a short distance from Martina Franca, a town halfway between Adriatic and Ionic Sea. The retreat center will be used exclusively by our group.
The retreat involves daily meditations, yoga and pranayama practices, theoretical inputs and group sharing. It leaves time for you to relax or explore the beautiful surroundings. Parts of the retreat will be in silence.
Mindfulness and Yoga practice are intended to enable us to still the movements of the mind, to gain insight into its «nature» and the world around us. These practices involve the cultivation of beneficial mind states, which help us to strengthen our resilience and our ability to navigate the – sometimes stormy – waters of our lives more happily, peacefully and with greater ease.
Our teachings are based on the wisdom of Vipassana and Mahayana Buddhist schools, Yoga Asana, classical pranayama and modern breathing practices, mind-body and functional medicine, coaching and 20 years of personal practice.
To be fully alive, fully human, and completely
awake is to be continually thrown out of the nest.
