Retreat in Italy with Catherine Ingram

October 27 – November 3, 2018

Join us for a week-long silent residential retreat in Italy beginning in October 2018 at a spectacular villa near Perugia, Italy, a facility in the lush hills of Umbria with pool, spa, hillside trails, ancient Roman roads, springs, and gourmet food. (The venue is Michelin-rated). This will be our sixth retreat at this facility–a place that I often dream about when I am not there.  The day includes two sessions of Dharma Dialogues, several short group sittings, group walks, and two sessions of yoga per day. All sessions are optional except attendance at Dharma Dialogues. The cost is €1,700 for shared room, €2,100 for a single room, all-inclusive (food, lodging, teachings). To register, we require a deposit of €300 to reserve your place.  We have made the deposit slightly less this year but it is non-refundable due to my having to come from Australia, where I now live.   Our yoga teacher for the week will be my wonderful colleague Ger Murphy who has taught at our last five Italy retreats. He is a wonderful teacher, dharma poet, renowned psychotherapist in Ireland, and much more. Once you have registered, we will send confirmation and, in September, more details to help you plan your trip and to coordinate a shared van from the Rome airport and back. Our retreats at this facility the past five years were the most profound and certainly the most elegant of my 43 years of attending and leading retreats. My premise is that an immersion in both silence and beauty is a prescription for physical and mental health. I am thrilled to be returning to this heavenly place and would love to share it with you. Please contact us directly for information and registration.
