Retreat in Nature

December 11-12, 2021
Giardino dei ciliegi/Villa Pardi, Manoppello (PE)
from 199€ (2 days)
from 100€ (1 day)

Join us for two days in nature with activities and workshops designed to support our bodies and minds in the transition towards winter. This is an opportunity to slow down, detach from a busy life-style and practice exercises for developing self-awareness. It is also an occasion to taste probiotic food and learn more about it. 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.
