  • Description


    This is a Retreat & Community Centre located at the edge of a medieval village in Southern Tuscany. This Centre is the cornerstone of an initiative to regenerate and revitalise the local village into a thriving Intentional Community. Our pilot project in Italy will become a land-based academy and healing centre dedicated to ethically, environmentally, and socially responsible living, commerce, and business.

    We are looking for like-minded and like-hearted people who are dedicated to community, service, and shared values. If you enjoy living and working in a culture committed to personal growth and inner work, and you look forward to embracing open, honest communication and ego-less collaboration with people who lovingly respect the land, different cultures and belief systems, and the sacred nature of all living things…

    We want to hear from you!

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    Our vision is to create a community hub where we can all come together to learn, share, and connect with one another and our neighbors in the village. Once we are fully open, we plan to provide healing modalities and education that includes services and schooling for residential and visiting guests, as well as a calendar of community events around storytelling, music, dance, performance and visual arts.

    What else ...

    There are over 20 people from our community who have already landed here in Tuscany, and more are coming every week. Although we are not fully launched yet, the Centre is currently open for community use only. Members have begun hosting meditations, breathwork sessions, yoga classes, ceremonies, and group talks in our Dharma Den. We also plan dinners together, local excursions and hikes, sharing circles, and bonfires - among many other group activities. We are always open to new ideas to come together as a community, and welcome those who are inspired by co-creating conscious culture.

    Much love
