Journey To Beauty Emotional Healing Retreat In Italy

About This Center

What better setting to journey back in time to the innocence, beauty and magnificence of your soul than Italy? And here at the border of Tuscany and Umbria, you can watch the sunlight dancing and breathe in the peace as you meditate in the silent garden. You will become entranced by the beauty of the surroundings and breathe out self-doubt, and fear as you walk among the olive trees. 

Bedrooms are in the villa and farmhouse, nestled in the beauty of the Cortona countryside. There is a lovely space for gathering as a community for our meditation and group sessions.  There are serene gardens to find peace. During personal time, you can choose to relax poolside or, book a massage or reiki session or with only a short drive in any direction, you can explore the wonders of the surrounding areas.  

The town of Cortona itself is perched in the hills at the base of the Apennine mountains, between the gorgeous Adriatic and Tyrrhenian coasts. Cortona is a 30 minute drive northeast of Montepulciano (home of Vino Nobile di Montepulciano) and south of Arezzo, the heart of Chianti’s Colli Aretini. And nearby in the neighboring province of Umbria is Lake Trasimeno. 


“Your vision will become clear only when you look into your heart. Who looks outside, dreams. Who looks inside, awakens.” – Carl Jung Do not be afraid to shine the light into the darkness. That is how we chase the shadows away. Awaken dear one.
