La Bella Vita – Life is Beautiful – is an opportunity to heal the internal heart. Together we gather in the ancient lands of Sicily by the sea and welcome you to align your physical and subtle bodies in order to open to the flow of nourishment throughout the layers of your being. As we spin towards the darkest season of the year, this threshold time holds deep seeds of potential for each of us to change the lens by which we experience ourselves, and the conditions around us.
Transform your emotions into liberating forces
Traverse the shadowy territory of your thoughts and behaviours
Turn to the practices to strengthen and restore the body & mind
Trust in the flow & allow your light to lead you to a deeper understanding of self
Embrace the Grace that rests beneath the ordinary moments of this life
Our days together will include twice daily asana & restorative practice. We will explore tantric philosophy, pranayama, meditation, contemplative exercises, guided visualizations, and delight in mantra, song, earth ceremony and prayer. Enjoy time in nature and time for rest. Cultural experiences & visits to nearby sites will be optional at an additional cost when our schedule permits. All levels welcome.
