Time – Out, a 7-day retreat in nature’s embrace

Date : 02 – 08 June 2024

Amidst the gentle hills of Le Marche, we invite you to embark on a profound journey of self-discovery, acceptance, and inner freedom. La Terra Saggia is more than a retreat center; it’s a sanctuary for the soul, a haven for creativity, and a cradle of wisdom.

Embracing the dawn

Every morning begins with a waking-up session of yoga and meditation. After a tasty breakfast we offer a focused exploration of a specific theme. Our guided group sessions blend seamlessly, weaving bodywork, reflective writing, meditation, and experiential exercises into a tapestry of self-exploration. Together, we embrace the present moment, and embark on a path of self-awareness and acceptance for ourselves and each other.

Afternoon Freedom

After a delicious and wholesome lunch, the afternoons are yours to savor. Whether you prefer moments of rest, leisurely walks in nature, refreshing swims, meaningful connections with fellow participants, or simply reveling in the blissful silence, La Terra Saggia offers the space for you to tailor your retreat experience.

Individual Coaching and Constellation Work

We understand that personal growth is a unique journey, and that’s why we offer individual coaching sessions. They provide a safe space for you to navigate and embrace your authentic self. Unravel the layers, let go of what no longer serves you, and step into the freedom of being.

Hiking in the surrounding mountains

Some days we will drive to the surrounding mountains and go on a longer hike, where the whispers of nature guide you to the wisdom within.

Before dinner active meditation

Before dinner we gather again for an active meditation or indulge in activities tailored to the needs of the group.

Vegetarian Culinary delights

Nourishment for Body and Soul. Savor the bounty of nature with our wholesome vegetarian cuisine. Each meal is a celebration of flavors, designed to replenish your energy and fuel your body. Enjoy the company of fellow retreat participants as you share stories and create connections over a delightful meal.

‘The experience of working on yourself for a few days in a row at such a beautiful location abroad, so close to nature, is sublime.
The exercises during this time-out have brought peace and openness. The coaching sessions touched me and were very effective. The guidance was very good. The two supervisors complement each other very well, making a safe and joyful space.’ Els ‘t K.

‘ I didn’t really know what to expect. After a tough year, I desperately needed a time-out. It exceeded my expectations. I have never experienced so much openness and love. I go home fully recharged.’  Jeanette H.

A great week for me. A welcome and much-needed ‘break’.  In an environment that couldn’t have been nicer.. I’d do it again in a heartbeat.’  Afrom B.
