Transformation & Growth

You are alive! 

You are a life force manifestation! 


Claim back the power to be loved and share your majesty in the world. 


Inner work: to release, to shake, to heal your emotional body. Come back home to your natural state of ease. 

Shadow work: to see, to honor, to become aware of your hidden shadow. Bring home your projected fear and see reality for what it is 

Inner child / inner masculine / inner feminine. Embody fully the beautiful potent quality of those three inner archetypes. Allow  your being to vibrate in wholeness. 

The heart of relating. Love/sex/intimacy. Get clear and confident to express your desires for pleasure, your boundaries, your longing for love. Breakthrough with shame, distortion, fear, illusion relating with sexuality. 

Awakening the HEART 


There is only a wild heart pulsating down at the core of Mother Earth, immense love and light his gift. 


Embrace it. 


Stop with the drama. 

Break the chains of past-conditioning and trauma. 

Free from attachment and story. 

Reveal your Heart❤️

Retreat Center: La Luna nel Pozzo

With its spaces for artistic creation and hospitality, and an environment which facilitates concentrated, harmonious work, La Luna nel Pozzo is an ideal Retreat location. 

La Luna nel Pozzo is a theater housed in a traditional stone “masseria,” or farm house, from the mid-nineteenth century; a cultural center nestled among the majestic olive trees in the Puglian countryside near Ostuni. The name expresses a hope for an oasis which can nourish new art forms, creating opportunities for fruitful creative encounters, where one can find the environment, and the time, to realize one’s desires. 

This center was born in 1999, of the meeting between two actors and an enchanted place. Robert McNeer and Pia Wachter, after 15 years of touring Europe with “Kismet” theater of Bari, recognized, in this corner of the mythical Itrian Valley, a place in which to realize their dream of cultivating theater and the performing arts in a natural environment. 


* Indoor rehearsal studio: 100 square m, heated, with parquet flooring 

* Outdoor stage: shaded wooden dance stage, 150 square m 

* Stone amphitheater: antique Greek design, with a 12 m diameter stage, excellent acoustics and seating 

* Cretan labyrinth: traditional stonework (20 m diameter), for meditation, discussion, writing, inspiration… 

* Land includes: 6 hectares of olive groves, forest, lily pond, trulli and sculptures



Food & Meals: The Puglian Kitchen

Includes daily brunch and dinner. The food is vegetarian & primarily local!
Visiting Puglia means discovering food and being enchanted by the myriad reflections of this hospitable Mediterranean landscape, rich in cultural and culinary traditions.
The Puglian kitchen is famous for its wholesome ingredients, both from the sea and from the earth, simple and flavorful. 

You will have the opportunity to sample many of the dishes of the Puglian tradition - dishes of Mediterranean delight. 

You will find the colors of the season’s fruits and vegetables, the knowledge of the pastors in the justly-renowned cheeses, olive oils from ancient trees, and artisan sourdough bread made from local, fresh stone-ground flours.
