Healing Holiday In The Heart of Italy : 7-Day Spiritual Retreat

Event Date:

July 22, 2024

Event Time:

1:00 pm

Event Location:

Tenuta di Fassia


This beautiful 7-day retreat is a perfect opportunity for you to connect with yourself; to meet and evolve with likeminded people from around the globe and share each other’s stories, experiences and perspectives; to deeply destress, detox and renew your body and soul; and to grow deeper awareness of both our inner and outer worlds.

This spiritual adventure invites you to dive deep within to find your inner compass and learn how to use it effectively to wipe out old, negative self-beliefs and supercharge your mind towards a happier, healthier and more abundant life —when your inner world changes, your outer world starts to mirror that new inner world and your mind will do everything it can to help you achieve that vision.

The Estate

480 hectares of unspoiled and protected nature, to immerse yourself in the splendor of the Umbrian countryside. Tenuta di Fassia is a peaceful corner just a few minutes from Gubbio, where apartments and rooms are surrounded by private lakes, tall woods and organic fields. The estate includes a variety of landscapes and domestic animals. This has been a spiritual sanctuary for decades. It is home to a small cottage industry of sustainable organic products made from locally harvested produce.

Biggest international airport is Rome (FCO). Florence and Bologna airports are also the same distance (approx. 200km) from the estate. There are trains and buses to the town of Gubbio, where the estate is located. See detailed transportation and driving instructions here. If there is enough interest and converging flight times, we can arrange a shuttle bus from/to the FCO airport.

What Past Attendees Said

This retreat helped me let go of my self-limiting beliefs, and open my mind and heart. The tools I learnt have helped me in my daily life and I remain grateful to Jay – he is a gifted teacher and guide. Highly recommend this.
~ Gautam M.

The role model of the facilitator in giving of himself was as important as the material.
~ Mike K.

Grateful to Jay for having the courage to dedicate his life to serve the souls of others.
~ Silent retreat participant

I returned home and resigned from my part time position. I told my employer that I want to teach holistic methods that support the soul and my beliefs. I believe that meditation is listening to ones’ soul. The experience enabled me to close the book on my story, which in turn may lead to space for me to write a book. There is only love.
~ Cathy, Silent retreat participant

I came home happy and joyful. Outer layer of anxiety, worries diminished tremendously! Fear is gone , I am bold now. I have different energy and I have revived a lot from my recent past and am like old me as I was 2-1/2 years ago! Thank you Jay!
~ Silent retreat participant

Silence is so powerful. Try to be in silence at least once a month at my own home.
~ Silent retreat participant

I am going through tough relationship issues. When we did creative exercise I felt connection with everyone in a room. I felt I am not alone anymore. I can face the whole world and the whole universe is ready to help me. The words from your mouth “May all you sorrow go away.” I felt I have no more sorrow in my life. I’ll try my best to keep this magic going. Thank you again brother Jay!
~ Silent retreat participant

The people were amazing! I loved how you set up the norms in the beginning, no titles, and the storytelling format to encourage vulnerability! Loved the fact that the facilitators were also participants. Leveled the playing field quite a bit and the focus on beginner’s mind.
~ Wise Leader retreat participant

“Jay, I really tend not to listen to meditations led by men because they can trigger me. But you provide such safety, warmth and wisdom. I love every series you’ve done. Thank you for cultivating such a thoughtful and nurturing energy♥️” ~ Bianca on Simple Habit app

“My husband of 29 years just died March 10th. You are the only thing that I have to help me keep me together. You have no clue how many times you’ve saved my life thru deep breathing exercises. I’m been thru hell with my own health and taking care of my poor husband with cancer. Thank you for all you do.”
– Ginger T.
