Sitting on 236 acres of woods (with walking paths that wind their way ‘round gorges and streams while offering gorgeous panoramic views), this tranquil sanctuary features a beautiful practice space filled with abundant natural light, 2 large rock and grass labyrinths, and a retreat within the retreat in the form of a meditation chapel- the Stillpoint Sanctuary.
Your body, mind and heart will thank you for immersing in twice daily yoga and meditation sessions guided compassionately by laurieG & Karen in the Inner Light Lodge. Enjoy gourmet vegetarian meals for the duration of your stay. There will be plenty of time to wander the grounds, journal, get lost in a book and relax barefoot & free. Camp fires, s’mores and stargazing optional but highly recommended as are sunrise sessions. Emerge and return, recharged, renewed and inspired.
Feed your soul this Fall, join the Sattva sangha in Sicily! We will be the guests of Sicilian Spirit Retreat Center, located in the Madonie area, at the very center of Sicily. Our home will be a 17th century farmhouse and it's adjacent guest cottages, surrounded by 60 acres of a lush private park that includes secluded oak woods, a small river and a labyrinth garden dating back to the first half of the 18h century.
We will begin each day with an envigorating yoga practice to include Pranayama, Vinyasa Flow, Yin and Meditation . Our days will be spent immersed in the heritage of Sicilian culture. We will be staying just a few miles from Gangi – “Most beautiful village in Italy” prize winner – and about 40km from the enchanting fishermen village of Cefalù. We will also be within a 90 minute drive to both Palermo and Catania making day trips to explore these historical cities an easy option.
Early autumn is the perfect time to experience outdoor excursions such as long hikes surrounded by the breath-taking Sicilian landscape, a rafting trip on of the Pollina river, maybe even a hike to Mt. Aetna which is about 2 hours away by car. It will likely still be warm enough during the day to enjoy a dip in the fresh water pool on the property after a long hike but also nice and cool in the evenings.
