Mindfulness retreat in Italy

During the week there will be teachings and practises on mindfulness and Compassion with Suryacitta and Gaynor. It is suitable for complete beginners and those who wish to deepen their practice of mindfulness and Compassion.

The mindfulness retreat in Italy will be based on Suryacitta’s first book
Happiness and How it Happens –

Finding contentment through mindfulness

Suryacitta and Gaynor will cover themes from Suryacitta’s book such as:

  • Opening to your natural goodness
  • It’s ok to be afraid
  • Compassion meditation
  • Stirring the porridge – waking up to each moment
    of your life
  • Worry – and how to stop it
  • The wisdom of loneliness
  • Living in the Present

There will be ample opportunity for question and answers and time for discussion. Walking meditation will also be taught and there will be opportunity to practice it in the beautiful forest surrounding Casa Rosa.

You wll also be able to practice mindful swimming in the gorgeous pool.

Casa Rosa, nestled in the glorious Umbrian countryside outside of Assisi, Italy.

There will also be other (Optional) activities taught on the retreat such as Voice Dialogue and Focusing.

Particiants will arrive on Saturday from 3pm, before enjoying a welcome talk, aperitivo and dinner by the pool at 6pm.
Every day on the Casa Rosa Mindfulness Retreat will thereafter begin with a 30 minute guided meditation before a banquet style breakfast. After a mid morning workshop, the group can take a break, before further meditation and discussion until lunch. After lunch participants are free to enjoy the surroundings – a walk in the countryside or a dip in the pool, followed by meditation and teaching. Some days there will be the opportunity for a trip into the medieval town of Assisi – until late evening.

I had a really relaxing and memorable week in this special place called Casa Rosa. The landscape took my breath away with the stunning mountains and lovely olive trees. The garden, the pool area and everything around the Casa Rosa was so breathtakingly beautiful. Ella & Alessandro, the owners, are the most hospitable and warm-hearted people ever and truly make the stay there spectacular. Every room in Casa Rosa was like a work of art. The rooms were also very cozy, clean and comfortable and I slept like a baby. And don’t even ask about the food, I could write a love letter to the delicious food I had an opportunity to enjoy while staying there. I’m surely coming back there and recommend this place highly!”
