DAY 1

BACK TO THE BODY

 

EMBODIMENT

THEME: Learning to fully be in our bodies is the first step towards love for self and for others. Coming back to the body is coming back home, coming back to our authentic self.
 
 
DESCRIPTION: Most people are constantly in their own minds, trapped in the repetitive limiting thinking patterns, mostly coming from Ego and Cultural conditioning. Being Embodied enables us to raise the vibration beyond fear, and release your life force energy.
 
 
EVENING SESSION: Ecstatic Contact Ceremony
 

 

DAY 2

EMOTIONAL AWARENESS

THEME: Learning from our emotions, learning to love self and other trough emotions.
Emotional intelligence is the mature form of self-love.
It means listening to the messages that come to us from within, from our emotions and act accordinly in a self loving way.

DESCRIPTION: Emotions are an expression of our beliefs and deep needs. Emotions are messengers, they are our GPS, they show us where to go and what's right for us. They show us what our needs are. However, it is necessary to welcome our emotions,  to recognise them, and to trust them. In order to truly love one must learn and express the needs and messages coming from emotions.

 

EVENING SESSION: Men and women Appreciation Ceremony

 

 

 

DAY 3

THE INNER CHILD

OUR HIDDEN RESOURCES

THEME: Anyone has an inner child; his PLAYFullNESS and INNOCENCE are ESSENTIAL INGREDIENTS IN ORDER to experience love.

DESCRIPTION: Becoming an adult means recognising, and taking care of your inner child. Learning to meet our inner child needs is what marks the difference between conscious and not conscious relationships. Without including out child needs we are unable to be in service to our partner, to fully receive love from others

EVENING SESSION: Children's party with games and entertainment.

 

 

DAY 4

THE FEAR OF LOVE AND INTIMACY

 

THEME: Love brings out our the most hidden fears. Today we learn to face the fear of being fully seen in our vulnerability. We will meet the fear of Rejected and not deep fear of not deserving Love.

DESCRIPTION: Today we enjoy a wide freedom of choice in relationships. But deep down we we are very scared and don’t know how deal with so much choice. Currently there is a general fear of meeting other in depth and authenticity. Today we will learn to embrace the vulnerability of giving and receiving love.

EVENING SESSION: Self-Massage Ritual

 

 

DAY 5

REDISCOVER PLEASURE AND MAKE IT CONSCIOUS

 

TOUCH and SENSUALITY
THEME: Using pleasure and sensuality in the body to overcome the fear of intimacy.

DESCRIPTION: Pleasure is the main tool that nature has given us in order to open up to love. True pleasure is experienced in the body, not in the mind; without being in the traps of the ego and power games. Only sensuality makes us bond to others and gives us the necessary resources to face the challenges of intimacy.

EVENING SESSION: Ritual of Sensuality

 

DAY 6

CONSCIOUS SEXUALITY

 

The arts of love

THEME: Eros as life force, as a medicine for the fear of love.

DESCRIPTION: Human beings, just like any animal are born from eros. Only through a conscious and transparent use of this force is it possible to love consciously. A healthy sexuality is what it takes for love to be embodied and sustained.

EVENING SESSION: The Arts of Love: the Temple Party

 

DAY 7

THE INTEGRATION OF LOVE

 

INTEGRATION OF LOVE AND EMOTIONS IN THE EVERYDAY LIFE

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. 

Highlights 

* 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

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

 

 

 

Food & Meals: The Puglian Kitchen

The Puglian kitchen is famous for its wholesome ingredients, both from the sea and from the earth, simple and flavorful.
