Italy has always been there to embrace, feed, and nurture me. That is exactly how those who join me at this retreat will feel
Mill Valley, CA (PRWEB) May 30, 2014
Author and life coach Lauretta Zucchetti will host a women’s wellness retreat in her native Italy this fall. The week-long retreat will offer a range of activities to encourage spiritual growth and foster creative expression. Transcend, Transform, Thrive, Retreat for Women will be in Tuscany, Italy, September 20-27, 2014.
It has been 33 years since Zucchetti moved to California from Italy. She still travels back every year. “For me, Italy holds that heart-melting feeling of being cherished, loved and accepted,” said Zucchetti. “Italy has always been there to embrace, feed, and nurture me. That is exactly how those who join me at this retreat will feel.”
Zucchetti will lead an intimate group to discover the wondrous awe and beauty of Italy, as well as rediscover themselves. Classes include Hatha Yoga, meditation, music, Italian art, ceramics, cooking, and writing. There will also be walks to nearby castles and forest.
The retreat is ideal for women going through or plan to go through a challenging life transition, such as divorce or an empty nest. "In my work I show women that they possess the innate strengths necessary to see themselves through challenging life transitions."
Women are often pulled in many directions with almost constant demands of their energy and time. There is no space for deeper connection with others or their environment. At the retreat there will be no expectations or demanding schedules. Rather it will be a place for enlightenment, emotional strength, and to achieve higher levels of awareness. The result will be a manifestation of changes women yearn for in their daily lives.
Italy, says Zucchetti, is a place of art and beauty. It has given birth to some of the most illustrious geniuses, the most divine foods, the most inspiring discoveries, the kindest people. By the end of the retreat, the group will have experienced these gifts. They will have bonded, and like Zucchetti, wish to return to Italy whenever they need renewal.
