Venue

Surrounded by a Mediterranean forest is a typical Tuscan country house ideally set in a magical place on the Maritime Hills a few km from the Tyrrhenian coast. A mixed landscape of woods, olive groves, vineyards and a skilfully-worked countryside reflect the agricultural origins of the town. 

 

Opposite is an open view to the sea, the Tuscan Archipelago, with a peek of Elba and Capraia Islands on the horizon and when it's very clear “the finger” of Corsica. This striking panorama can be enjoyed through walks along the naturalist paths of the countryside or via excursions on horse back or mountain bikes.

Thanks to its secluded position,  is an ideal place both for groups or travelers looking to reconnect with the purity of nature.

Yoga supports us to live in the very "core" of the existence, to live a fully embodied life that is a gift to be celebrated and embraced with joy.

REBIRTHING with LIVE HANDPAN MUSIC: Rebirthing is a conscious circular breathing technique to evolve and express the vital energy. It's used as a tool to expand and transform our consciousness. This simple yet powerful technique works holistically in our body. It helps to remove emotional blockages or traumas that no longer serve us. Positive affirmations will change some aspects of your past that till now limited your life and your full potential, you will make a clear decision of the way you want to live your present and future without fear and more clarity. The session is guided by the sound of handpan, which has a special frequency for healing benefit.

 

SHAMANIC BREATHWORK CEREMONY: Shamanic Breathwork is a special rhythmic breathing technique that will bring the expansion of the heart and deep connection within. The ceremony is guided and supported with various shamanic musical instruments to call back ancestral vibrations of healing. The intention is to guide your center of perception, to perceive the reality not from your mind, but from your heart. No filter of ego or fear, but only love. This is an experience of unconditional love and surrender that you can recall for all your life. We will have 2 ceremonies during the retreat.

 

SHAMANIC SOUND HEALING MEDITATION: Shamanic Sound Healing Journeys are beautiful sound based meditations using high frequency healing instruments, sung & spoken voice, guided meditation & shamanic medicine songs to evoke a state of well being, relaxation, deep peace and inner harmony.

You are invited to share space with Davide D'Agostino & friends for a divine healing journey like no other & delve into the cosmic realms through a shamanic sound experience that will lift your spirits HIGH!!!

The journey will invite you to meditate, stretch, dance, sing, play, discover, dissolve stress, surrender, release, awaken & enliven the inner most heart through the healing power of SOUND in a safe, held and loving environment.
Davide specializes in helping open minded, heart centered individuals to shift energy and blockages held within their bodies cellular memory in order to gain insights into themselves and experience states of deep peace and relaxation through music, meditation & breath through these powerfully healing Divine Sound Journeys. These sessions are highly useful for improving overall health, vitality & well-being; releasing tension and stress; gaining focus and clarity; awakening the bodies innate healing wisdom and gaining personal empowerment.

IRENE GUARDALA'

Travelling and sport have been a vital source of personal growth and knowledge: learning about new cultures, different ways of living, eating and moving have made me realise what life can truly offer, how big the world is and that, all too often, people can struggle to see beyond who and what they think they are.

This is why I chose to improve my quality of life – by looking beyond my own limitations, searching for profound wellbeing and conveying this message to others. 

When I first approached yoga in Italy, it was as a simple physical practice in my search for balance in physical movement. It was only later, during journeys to India and Thailand, that yoga’s origins and meaning became clear to me, enabling me to grasp its true essence and make it an integral part of my everyday life.

Through my studies, practice with various teachers and personal experimentation, I continue to acquire experience in this field.

It is a source of great joy to share my experience with people wanting to put themselves to the test, learn new things and broaden their mind, as they look to get more out of life. 

DAVIDE D'AGOSTINO
Davide, originally from Italy, works with healing elements of water, air/breath, sound and music. He is a rebirthing & breathwork facilitator, Wataflow (water massage therapy) facilitator, multi-instrumentalist and a creator of Tantric Handpan music.
He was a master diving instructor and sailor in the past; he spent many years working and living in Caribbean Sea, Mediterranean Sea, and Red Sea. The lifestyle was challenging physically, mentally and spiritually, then some life-changing events followed. He was initiated to the study of Buddhism and different kinds of meditation. Following the inner calling, he continued his study on yoga, Tantra, rebirhting breathwork, and Wataflow healing therapy. With his years of experience of mastering the breath under water, and all the tools and practices that he has been benefited, he is dedicated to support and guide people to find happiness in themselves and in their life.
 
"Breath is a powerful healer that helps to release stuck energy and old patterns and transform the mind, and when you are held in the water, it is an experience of unconditional love itself. We need to be aware that water has a memory, we are all made out of water, and our intention is powerful. The same for air and all the other elements as we all are each little universe. The universe is love. We are love."

logistics & travel

The participant is responsible for all travel arrangements and costs to/from the retreat venue.
The cost of the Retreat does not include travel or personal insurance.
BY CAR

Your aim is to arrive to the village of Riparbella. You’ll cross the village through the main road and at the end of the village you’ll see garbage cans on the right and a high quality public water fountain on the left. Keep right after the garbage cans. You will see a sign to Casale Pundarika. Follow it. Continue straight on for about 500 meters and after a little bridge turn left (signposted again Casale Pundarika) and drive up the hill on a mostly cemented road (we suggest you stay in 1st gear while driving up this last part of the road). Continue always straight until you reach Casale Pundarika!

 

BY AIRPLANE

PISA Airport, served by Ryanair and EasyJet among others, is the closest airport to us. From there you can reach Pisa train station and take a train to CECINA, the closest train station to our place.

You can also rent a car at the airport.

We will be happy to provide directions if you arrive to a different Airport like Florence, Milan or Rome.

 

BY TRAIN

The closest train station is CECINA which is well connected with direct trains to and from Florence, Rome and Milan.

We can arrange a pick up service at the train station on request.

There are also buses going to the village of Riparbella from Cecina train station but they run infrequently.

 

ARRIVAL ON FOOT OR BIKE

First of all congratulations! We are happy that you care about the environment. You have to hike to the village of Riparbella, from there you can continue your hike to Casale Pundarika signposted at the end of the village after the garbage cans. From the village it’s a 20 minutes walk, but if you want to avoid the last 800 meters after the bridge, which are pretty steep, we will be happy to pick you up in the village.
