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, all-inclusive (food, lodging, teachings).* To register, we require a deposit of €400 to reserve your place.  Your deposit is 50% refundable until Sept. 1, 2018 after which it is non-refundable.   Our yoga teacher for the week will be Dalia Nazryan whom some of you know from our last Italy retreat in 2016.  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. In case you want to make advance flight plans, please know that we arrange a bus to pick you up at Rome’s FCO airport on Oct. 27 at 3 pm and return to either Rome center or FCO on Nov. 3.  However, if you are coming from overseas, please plan to arrive into Rome at least a day ahead.  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.

*Please note:  we have filled the main villa and have rented an equally beautiful additional villa nearby in which to add participants.  We have just a few places left in the second villa.  All retreat activities and meals will take place in the main villa.
