Each day will begin with a morning guided meditation and light mindful movement, followed by breakfast and some free time to relax and unwind at the villa.
In the afternoons we’ll explore the local areas, enjoy the beautiful scenery, sun ourselves on the stunning beaches, and get to know our wines a little more with guided tours to nearby vineyards.
The evenings will offer time to connect, get to know and learn from one-another, discuss our day and our experiences. Dinners will be mindful and luxuriously nourishing. The quintessential way to unwind after a day.
Everyday there will be a workshop for an hour to two hour. Workshops will encourage mindfulness, mindful practices, introspection and self-exploration. They will provide a space for you to be easy, to rest, to feel loving kindness, and to find peace.
