the well women - self care retreat
THIS 6 DAY RETREAT IN THE ITALIAN COUNTRYSIDE IS AN INVITATION FOR YOU TO SLOW DOWN and focus on what matters most. IMMERSE YOURSELF IN NATURE, and Learn simple daily self care rituals for deeper well being, creativity and joy.
THROUGH DAILY YOGA PRACTICE, SACRED RITUAL AND DEVOTION and DEEP REST, Free yourself from the constant demands of linear time, and reclaim your power as a woman to live by the wisdom of nature and the intuitive voice of your soul.
Join us IN THE ANCIENT HEALING SANCTUARY SPACE OF EREMITO, to HONOR NATURE’S RHYTHMS, live by the sun and the moon, create simple ceremony and CELEBRATE the SACRED gift of your embodiment.
For millennia, women gathered monthly to honour the phases of the moon, the turning of the seasons, and to take a sacred pause from the demands of daily life. Time away from family and responsibility was not seen as selfish or indulgent, but essential to the wellbeing of the communities to which these powerful wise women belonged.
In this modern day era of constant connection to screens, you’re expected to keep up like never before, to devices that don’t need rest. Life keeps getting faster and fuller, you feel caught in the cult of “busyness”. You long to slow down, to create more space, and to simply enjoy the beauty of being alive.
There’s a rhythm in nature you can align to, for greater vitality, clarity and inspiration.
