"Blessed be the gifts you never notice, your health, eyes to behold the world, thoughts to countenance the unknown, memory to harvest vanished days, your heart to feel the world's waves, your breath to breathe the nourishment of distance made intimate by earth." – John O'Donohue
I am delighted to partner with Embodied Adventures to bring you an incredible retreat experience in the enchanting hillside town of Positano, Italy. Daily yoga, meditation, and inspired dharma talks will provide the structure and support for your deepening into presence and capacity to savor the blessings of life. Your afternoons will be yours to read, journal, swim, and soak up the full flavor of the region, for an all-around rich and transformational personal retreat.
This intimate retreat is limited to just 12 guests, and will be held at the charming, family run bed-and-breakfast, La Fenice. Guest suites are perched in the hillside, extending all the way down to a private pool and beach. Enjoy abundant meals prepared by the Mandara family, and group excursions including an Italian cooking class, hike on the pathway of the Gods, visit to the ruins of Pompeii, and opportunities to explore the cobblestone streets of Amalfi and Ravello.
This retreat is ideal for those seeking a sweet week of tending to body, mind, and soul. The yoga asana will be Hatha-based and accessible to all-levels, inviting mindful awareness, refined alignment, and engagement of dynamic movement principles to deepen the work and enliven the body. The meditation sessions will weave practices from Yoga, Zen Buddhism, and Vipassana, and the dharma talks will draw from Classical Yoga philosophy, Tantra, Ayurveda, and contemporary psychology to open the doors to greater self-understanding, resiliency, and capacity to savor the miracle of life.
