what it’s all about

Beyond You is an immersive, mindfulness retreat where you can step out of your busy life and spend 7 days nurturing your soul. Spend a relaxing, rejuvenating week, in a beautiful Masseria, in the heart of the Sicilian countryside. Share delicious home cooked vegetarian food, made from local produce with like minded people in a welcoming, supportive, safe environment created by our highly experienced and friendly team.

Mindfulness helps us to cope with stressful situations by giving us the tools to choose how we behave, rather than reacting from a place of heightened emotion. You’ll take part in two focused mindfulness sessions each day which will teach you techniques and mindsets to change the way you see and experience the world, forever. In these sessions you will uncover some of the underlying causes of stress that relate more to your own habitual reactions to challenging situations than to any external conditions. This will leave you with a new sense of grounding and inner calm, and a higher resilience to deal with anything that life throws at you.

You’ll enjoy practicing yoga (traditional Hatha yoga fused with vinyasa flow, for all levels) and meditation daily (although these are both optional). There will also be plenty of free time for you to relax, take in your surroundings, swim or even explore the island.

WHAT YOU’LL BE DOING

In a safe, non judgmental space, we will be exploring how to understand our minds and what really drives our thoughts. We’ll be learning how to give ourselves the space to respond in difficult situations instead of reacting. We’ll be peeling away the layers of our personalities to reveal our true selves and find out what we really want from life and how to get it.

We’ll learn valuable applied mindfulness techniques that will help in any challenging situation in your life. Whether it’s at home or at work. We’ll be sharing mindsets and tools that will give you different perspectives on issues that you might be struggling with at the moment.
