About This Event

Set in the heart of Tuscany's rolling hills and surrounded by Etruscan and medieval towns, Podere Fiorli is a Franciscan monastery in the fourteenth century and has been the "mother house" to a peace-based foundation for more than30 years. Visitors are touched by the views, the surrounding nature and by the healing atmosphere, leaving invigorated and empowered from their stay.

With its open kitchen, communal spaces, very friendly staff and unique vibe it feels home to all who visit.

To be creative means to be in love with life. You can be creative only if you love life enough that you want to enhance its beauty, you want to bring a little more music to it, a little more poetry to it, a little more dance to it. - Osho

Why Retreat?

We asked people why they go on retreat, here's what they said:

My inspiration sparks from my innate charge to connect with a collective innate goodness. I aspire to live in a way that continuously blossoms and embraces my wise and compassionate human nature. Freundl

We believe human beings are innately wise, strong and kind. This wisdom, although not always experienced, is always present. Going on retreat is a beautiful way to reconnect to our basic sanity and health. Our aspiration at Retreat Guru is to inspire people to experience authentic retreats and reconnect with their innate wisdom, strength and kindness.
