This Retreat

is for anyone looking for gentle, yet profoundly transformative ways of relaxing with themselves and for opening into the lively adventure of not-knowing.
When we live from these qualities, we feel creative, joyfully alive, deeply still, and at peace with life’s ever-changing inner and outer circumstances.

Focusing and  Authentic Movement
enriched by dance, and elements of  Somatic Experiencing® and the Feldenkrais Method®, will be our pathways of coming home to ourselves.
Each of these approaches in its own unique way will support us in deepening our capacity of sensing, feeling, and for trusting our intuition. They will also help us to express ourselves in more warm, free, and honest ways. Through unstructured dance, our soft and wild vital energies can express themselves spontaneously and freely.
This retreat will be held in the stunning beauty of the Adriatic Italian countryside.

What You Will Take with You from This Retreat

In guided explorations, you will – at your own pace – come into a more direct and loving contact with yourself and others. Your inner sensitivity and resilience will grow. You will explore and move beyond the hindrances that keep you from living with a quality of playfulness, ease, and a trust in life.

Without having to perfect yourself, you can find an inner state where you can be aware of the preciousness of each moment, no matter if pleasant or painful. You can feel alive and at home in every cell of your body.
