The Art of Slow Living Retreat

Info: Registrations are open until June 10th. This retreat is planned to be held in English. Of course, you are free to speak Italian or German in smaller groups. In case there are just German participants, we will switch to German. The German version can be found here.


Mindfulness | Food | Nature | Connection - A retreat for women who are ready to disconnect to reconnect.

Join our July-retreat in beautiful Piemont, Italy, from July 20th to 27th. For one week, we dive into La Dolce Vita, or let’s say Slow and Mindful Living.
Practice mindfulness and bring a new powerful focus to your life and work. Throughout our week you’ll explore how to shape your day-to-day and work life mindfully, sustainably and in integrity with your own values - and how healthy and good nutrition can support you in reaching this goal. We’ll slow down and consciously activate all of our senses to foster creativity and clarity.


The retreat is for you if you

  • wish to use your full potential and creativity
  • are looking for a new perspective on your work and projects, as well as and their deeper purpose
  • are curious to see what happens if you consciously disconnect from your mundane, day-to-day and work life to reconnect with yourself, your passions and visions
  • are looking forward to spend a week within nature, with  great food and inspiring impulses
  • are a female visionary, entrepreneur, changemaker, food enthusiast - or simply a curious and open-minded person, excited to go on a learning journey

There are no prerequesites when it comes to sustainability, mindfulness or food topics – you are invited to be curious and motivated to co-create an amazing experience. If you want to consciously take time for yourself, good food, and like-minded women, book your spot.

 

Italy is the land of slow food, dolce vita and “dolce far niente”.

What a place to go a bit slower, enjoy the creative potential of idleness, rest, silence, mindfulness, as well as healthy and tasty eating. To eat well during a time of reflection is essential, because nutrition is the energy that feeds our being and actions at base level.
In our retreat, we’ll playfully dig into who we “are” in terms of patterns, issues and nutrition. We’ll ask ourselves

What makes me feel alive?
What does pleasure, slowing-down, and sensuality mean to me?
How can I design my life, work and actions authentically and mindfully?

You will get to know tools that help you to integrate more awareness into your daily life. You will be guided by a food professionell and empowerment coach with whom you can work on personal goals - while being part of a week of sisterhood. We will integrate this four elements on a daily basis:

  • Mindfulness & Potential Growth
  • Sustainable Eating & Food
  • Movement & Hiking
  • Silence & Individual Time

Commit yourself no - and book your spot right away!
 

Concept & Retreat Coordination

The program is designed and lead by Sabrina Meyfeld & Eva Breitbach. The two creative powerhouses met in a Berlin co-working space, where they hosted themed dinner and food events.

Sabrina is half-Sicilian, a passionate cook and coach for innovation and transformation processes. With 8 years of coaching experience in the fields of personal growth, leadership and entrepreneurship, she loves to design, coach and facilitate Inbetween-Spaces and slow-down-time for conscious being. Sabrina believes that inner work is essential to create a better, sustainable world. She loves to initiiate projects and is doing her yoga teacher training at the moment. She’s excited to share her love for Italy with you during the retreat and to hold space for authentic dialogue, reflection and mutual inspiration.

Eva has lived in Piedmont in Italy for over three years now and works at the University of Gastronomic Sciences, founded by Slow Food. Here she designs and organizes study trips to food producers in Italy and around the world. Her work focuses on the didactic communication of sustainable food production, especially through learning in action - by seeing, feeling and tasting. She has a master's degree in food and sustainability and loves to explore production processes of food and to put them into a holistic context.
