An ancient castle in Italy
The bucolic fields of the heartland
Places of beauty, solace and nature
Morning yoga and meditation overlooking the ocean, a tuscan olive grove
Powerful circle, earth and moon ceremonies
Daily rituals to cleanse and renew
Crafting these beautiful moments is a creative joy for me, which is why I keep planning these retreats after having led over fifty of them in the last twenty years.
I have learned so much about life and joy and connection from traveling and doing these retreats.
It is my deep calling to share these unique and precious times away with you.
I know the courage it requires to pull away from your normal life.
To give yourself to a new adventure in an unfamiliar place with people you have never met.
The stimulation and growth you experience when you leave your normal setting for a few days is one of the bravest expressions of self-love for your soul.
It is a declaration to fill your life with joy and magic.
I am honored to be your guide.
To show you a new part of the earth and a new part of your radiant self.
To create a setting where you feel rooted and safe even while you are adrift in the world.
To help you deepen your practice of yoga and meditation.
To become still and fully present in your life.
You will experience the grace of community that we all desperately need in our modern day world of isolation, but you also will receive personal attention from me and time to explore on your own.
You will be seen.
You will be nourished.
You will have sanctuary for your soul.
And you will emerge renewed.
Are you ready?
Read on to sign up for one of my retreats or get in touch with me about creating your own.
