with Mirka Scalco Kraftsow
It is a heartfelt joy for Mirka to create retreats that journey to the country of her birth. This wonderful adventure into the heart of Italy is also an immersion into asana, pranayama, chanting, meditation, and the teachings and spirit of the ancient Seers. We will enjoy excursions to sacred sites in the area, where Francis loved to pray, like the Porziuncola and Eremo delle Carceri, and other special towns, including Gubbio and Spoleto. It is a gift to share this special place to support our spiritual journey, entering together into the depth of practice with joy and appreciation of each other's presense.
This year we will be staying at the 3-star Hotel Dei Priori and Hotel Alexander, both situated in historical buildings, dating back to the 17th century, right in the heart of the old city. Both hotels are modern (including ameneties such as Wifi) and elegently simple. Rooms are uniquely designed as the buildings flow into the tapestry of anicent structures that define down town Assisi; no two rooms are alike. The wonderful staff have become part of the family on this Path to Wholeness, and will be there to help take care of all of your needs while in town.
In our Morning Sessions will include immersion experiences at special sites around the town. On location, we will be guided through practices that help ground us in Grace using the inspiration of the history of the locations. The Afternoon Sessions will be focused on the Asana as well as inner practices of meditation, self inquiry, Pranayama and chanting. These sessions will take place in our beautiful practice space and will integrate the morning experience and prepare us for the next days's journey. After dinner you are free to explore the beauty of Assisi by night to take advantage of local food and entertainent.
