Retreat in Nature

December 11-12, 2021
Giardino dei ciliegi/Villa Pardi, Manoppello (PE)

Join us for two days in nature with activities and workshops designed to support our bodies and minds in the transition towards winter.

We invite nature-lovers, healthy diet and slow-food adepts, practitioners of yoga, meditation, somatic movement and other disciplines. Simultaneously, the program is designed for people with different levels of experience, so anyone interested is welcome.

Workshops and practice
Yoga, pranayama and yoga-nidra
The combination of breath and movement is an essential focus in Yoga. Paranayama means control of life energy (prana: life energy, yama: control). Through the right use of prana we bring awareness back to the respiratory system by increasing the energy that is necessary for physical yoga practice. This helps us not to consume energy but an the contrary to feel regenerated after practicing yoga.
Through the dynamic flow of movement and breath we will learn to enter into the postures with harmony and right control.
The main yoga posture will be introduced to give flexibility, vigor and balance to the body, also influencing mental well-being.
Finally, we will give space to the practice of Yoga Nidra (sleeping yoga), a technique through which, with the support of guided meditation, we will induce a state of relaxation similar to the state of deep sleep but in a state of total awareness.
Somatic movement
Approaching movement as our primal language, the workshop invites the participants to reclaim it through strengthening the knowledge and experience of the soma – the awareness of the body coming from within (for example through paying attention to movement or to a touch event). The participants are guided through verbal instructions, suggesting to move in a particular way, often with evocative imagery ("move as if you have a giant, dinosaur-like tale"; "you are seaweed, moved by the water"). Drawing inspiration from contact improvisation, contemplative practices, contemporary dance techniques and embodied voice, the practice doesn't aim at perfecting the technique of the movement. Instead the participants are invited to cultivate a kinesthetic sense through careful listening to the body and exploring inner sensations, emerging throughout the experience. Somatic movement also engages with the external forces and phenomena – e.g. gravity, inertia, landscape, textures, air temperature etc – for cultivating the sense of connection and belonging to something bigger than we are.
DIY lactofermentation workshop
The workshop is intended for all those interested in supplementing the diet with live foods, particularly rich in beneficial microorganisms and nutrients. The program consists of an introduction to the "Orti Geometrici" project and to fermented vegetables (history, traditional recipes, contemporary recipes); practice – making sauerkraut.
Each participant will be provided with all the material and all the ingredients necessary to prepare a jar of sauerkraut. You will only have to bring a notebook in which to write down some information not to be forgotten.
Facilitator: Fabio Ciarcelluti (Orti Geometrici)
Degustations based on ancient fermented recipes produced by "Orti Geometrici"
Kombucha is a live drink, fermented by a culture of bacteria and yeasts, natural effervescent, unpasteurized, with a sweet-sour taste, non-alcoholic, based on tea and top quality plant materials grown mainly on the farm. Microorganisms transform the ingredients, enhancing the taste and nutritional properties of the food, making it easily bioavailable and more assimilable by the body.
Lactofermented vegetables are vegetables grown on the farm and transformed by indigenous microorganisms into surprisingly tasty food, rich in acetic acid and good bacteria.
Agri are live acetic condiments, not pasteurized or filtered, obtained from the acetic fermentation or oxidation of flowers and fruits grown on the farm.
Degustation of natural breads produced by "Mercato del Pane"
