Christmas in Florence!
“La Bellezza”- Florence, Italy
December 21-26, 2018
A few years ago I spent Christmas in Florence. It was one of the most sacred, spiritual, and authentic holidays I’ve ever experienced.
I loved the way time stood still, people seemed to be genuinely celebrating life, the streets were alive with joy! It was twinkly and magical.
I knew that someday I would experience that again.
Since then, I’ve been dreaming of how to share my experience of spending a major holiday in the beauty of Italy.
So tonight on Christmas Eve, I’m positively joyous as I announce my 1st Christmas in Florence Retreat, La Bellezza!
La Bellezza means “the beauty” in Italian.
It speaks of how we dwell in beauty as we celebrate life itself.
La Bellezza is December 21-Dcember 26, 2018.
Which just happens to be the solstice AND the full moon!
How could I resist?
We need to think creatively about how to break away from our usual routine. I decided that as my life continued, I wanted to know what it was like to spend the most notable holiday of the year, outside the US.
What I discovered was heavenly.
My Christmas in Florence shaped my life in so many profound ways. My heart became more open, more aligned with who I truly am. Since that Christmas in Florence, I’ve felt huge shifts within my personal growth. I honestly feel that it changed my life in the most positive ways.
The La Bellezza retreat will include: Daily sacred meditations in the Duomo, a Solstice/Moon ritual on the Ponte Vecchio, Caroling around the Piazza, Food and Wine tasting lunches and dinners, private Museum tours of the Uffizi and the Academia, yoga classes, attending an Opera, to name of few!
I’m collaborating with some of my favorite people in Florence, including a couple of notable chefs, sommeliers and “Walks of Italy,” to curate a truly one of a kind experience.
My dear friend Bronwyn Simons will be there as our moon goddess Astrologer! Bronwyn will lead a Solstice/Full Moon ceremony under the stars and twinkling lights of Florence. She will also work with people individually to look at their year ahead forecast. Bronwyns gift is not to be missed! I’ve partnered with her for other of my Italy retreats, and she has become a true gift to all who work with her.
Does this sound dreamy enough yet?
Christmas in Italy is all about enchantment. I can’t think of a more heart opening way to have a personal transformation, than by experiencing the beauty of Italian culture.
Packages are $2,800-$3,200 depending on room choice. Lodging will be in a gorgeous modernized villa near the Duomo!
Included in each package: 5 nights lodging, lunch and dinner each day, Uffizi & Academia museum tickets & private tours, wine tastings, olive oil tastings, solstice and full moon celebration, trips to the best Christmas markets with a tour guide, a night at the opera (swoon), yoga classes to restore and soothe, teachings on loving kindness, and meditation classes.
Bonus! I’ll be offering a holistic life coaching intensive on December 26. This is one full day of coaching in a group setting, with a specific focus on how to align 2019 to create more happiness and wellbeing, mind, body and spirit. A beautiful way to end the year and vision for the coming year. Each participant will receive a map for guidance, and a follow up coaching session via Skype.
*Coaching intensive is $350 for full day, plus celebration lunch and dinner out.
This retreat will be an intimate group, space is limited to 12.
I’m letting you hear about it early, because you are part of my inner circle.
I wanted to let the spirit of the season encourage you to let the dreaming begin!
