Umbria project week: 

In our hectic society, we have exchanged values such as silence and connection for busyness and sensory overload. 

When we spend time in nature in a meditative way, we (re)gain access to our (innermost) nature. For millennia, monks, mystics and other people have lived, meditated and sought refuge in forests, deserts and mountains. They were inspired by the living creation and wisdom of the natural world. 

The retreat week takes place in the enchanting and untouched environment of the Umbrian mountain forests. Located in complete seclusion at an altitude of 750 meters, San Gallo is a perfect and paradisiacal place to quickly find peace and immerse yourself in its tangible tranquillity. It is a healing space that opens up and welcomes you to recharge and experience unity with life, nature, and most importantly, your own loving being.

Together we meditate, hike, live in community and immerse ourselves in the silence of nature.

In addition to a day trip to Assisi, a visit to the Babaji Temple in Pagialla and a day of silence, there is plenty of free time to enjoy the nature of San Gallo.
