This retreat is a chance to relax, recharge and connect to nature. It is an opportunity to come together with likeminded people who care for the planet that sustains us.
The basis for caring for others and for the world is self-care; we will be following a simple, restorative yogic lifestyle in the peaceful surroundings of Grempoli Retreat in the Tuscan hills. Our schedule will include morning yoga classes, yoga nidra, walking meditation, havan and kirtan, along with karma yoga.
During the karma yoga time, we will be participating in the work of Grempoli’s organic farm and kitchen. We will also be learning a simple permaculture practice for growing trees by making seed balls from clay, compost and seeds. These can be thrown in nature wherever seeds will grow. Since the seeds come with their own protective and nurturing shell, at least one of the seeds in a seed ball is likely to take root. This is an effortless way of reforesting areas where tree cover has been lost.
We will have some seeds available for different climates and conditions within Europe. In addition, as a way to prepare for the retreat, consider sourcing or harvesting seeds from trees in your local area. You are also welcome to stay for an extra day or two and experience the peace and serenity of the forests and hills surrounding Grempoli.
