Christmas Retreat in Assisi
About This Event
This is a unique meditation retreat in Assisi Italy, where we feel the peace and sacredness of this ancient hilltop town.
Our Retreats are small-group retreats which offer an intimate one-of-a-kind experience, honoring all faiths.
Each retreat period is six days and five nights.
Heart Meditation and gentle walks to sacred sites, bring us closer to the simple peace that St Francis and St Clare found.
There are spacious afternoons as well to rest, read, explore hidden treasures, gardens, olive groves and back streets.
We attract a contemplative community of people seeking inner peace and happiness.
No experience with meditation necessary.
One on one meditation guidance is included as part of the retreat.
