About This Event

This transformational retreat has been uniquely designed as a relax weekend getaway from the daily hustle to awaken your senses and help you rediscover human connection through a new lens. Stepping out of your busy life and into the tranquility of a Tuscan Vineyard you will experience how to detox your body as you find a new connection to yourself, nature, and humanity.

We go further beyond the traditional yoga retreat and will easily become one of the best weekend getaways of natural detox you ever experienced.

We will co-create a space of creative exploration, healing, and transformation, inspired by ancient wisdom and modern science.

We will go beyond the boundaries of traditional retreats, venturing into creatively crafted experiences designed around the healing power of food and sound. You’l learn how to detox your body, mind and soul under a completely new perspective.

The schedule allows for a healthy mix of activities and free time.

Each morning we will couple intentional sound with mediation and movement practices to ease you into the morning. Leading into lunch, you’ll have an opportunity to find your voice.

Each lunch and dinner will be an experience in itself, beyond the pure act of eating. You will feel a deeper connection to a healthy and fresh selection of locally sourced nourishment. Evenings are ended with a Sensory Sound Bath that invites you to activate a deep exploration of your inner-self and redefine your relationship to sound, as you relax into the night.

FAQ

- What happens at a retreat?


A retreat is a holiday with the purpose to discover something new about yourself and life.

It can be as transformational and magical as you want or just relaxing with a bit of spark. You can gauge

- What are the benefits of sound healing?

Sound healing has positive impacts that include stress reduction, anxiety and depression relief, increased sleep quality, clarity, creativity, peace, and other psychological benefits. It can also be used to target physical conditions and diseases. While scientific studies are increasingly confirming the effectiveness of sound as a healing tool, it remains a deeply personal experience related to the consciousness of the individual and openness to receive it.

- How does sound heal the body?


The latest scientific research agrees with ancient wisdom: everything in a state of vibration. If it vibrates it means it also produces a sound, regardless if we hear it or not. From the smallest subatomic particles studied by physicists to our organs and body to moving planets and galaxies, everything has its natural state of vibrational harmony. When we experience negative emotions, thoughts, mental and physical states, our harmony is disturbed and becomes disharmony. Thanks to the intentional use of sound, we can work at a cellular level to bring back harmony in our body, mind, and soul. This translates into increased wellbeing and can even lead to breakthroughs.

- Can music heal you?

As music is an art form made of sound, it can also act as a powerful healing vehicle. Music can be intentionally produced for the purpose of initiating healing. This is in contract to when when it is produced and performed solely as an entertaining art form. In simple terms, intentionality behind sound and music is what can make it healing. 


- Why you should go on this retreat?

Because you can reconnect with yourself through a creative and explorative mix of movement, meditation, food, relaxation, music and other experiences drawn upon both ancient wisdom and modern science. It will lead to a positive benefit on your holistic wellbeing.



- What is detox and how does it work?

This detox retreat is not about deprivation. It’s about experiencing how delicious foods can facilitate healing within your body and be used as fuel to sustain your energy levels, overall health, and concentration. All while connecting authentically with one another.

This retreat is well suited for busy professionals, artists, couples or leaders who can benefit from a short but effective break to replenish their energy, reconnect with themselves and getting new inspiration.
