End of the Year Retreat

27 December 2014 - 1 January 2015, with Franco Santoro

In English/Italian

This retreat is a major opportunity to join loving forces with other friends on the path, creating healing networks and laying vital foundations for manifesting honourable intentions. The week promotes expanded awareness and planetary healing through meditation, astroshamanic practices and gentle inner work. We will alternate periods of silence and dialogue, stillness and movement, touch and contact, relaxation and activity, group and individual sessions, bringing careful attention to our inner and outer world, while also experientially exploring our astrological charts. We will also spiritually scan the past year, using an astroshamanic recapitulation technique, purposefully designed for the end of the  year, and successfully used by Franco with hundreds of participants in the past 16 years.

The assumption of shamanic recapitulation is that past events can block vital energy until they are finally sorted out and released. When this is not the case the past keeps being held in the emotional body and is constantly recycled, reactivated and condensed in the present. As human beings we tend to invest enormous energies in these memories until, just like in a computer, the memory space is used up, and our lives crash, hang or freeze. Besides reviewing one’s life and memories, releasing grievances and blocked emotions, recapitulation can allow previously trapped energies to become available so as to implement desired results and objectives. Hence, recapitulation is combined with practices aimed at defining one’s intentions, and budgeting, organising and programming the year ahead.

Held for 12 years at the Findhorn Foundation this retreat is finally taking place at Casale in Lunigiana in Merizzo (Massa, Italy) an uncontaminated valley in Northern Tuscany.
