The Soma, Psyche & Creative ReWilding Retreat at Tenuta di Paternostro fulfils your desire for the uncommon, for what is still wild, for creative expression, for deep somatic connection.

For the past 25 years, Micheline Berry, the host of the retreat, has been taking people on journeys of deep personal inquiry & embodiment as a way to connect; grow curiosity, creativity, courage; and discern between the ‘creative signal’ and the ‘noise’.

While immersing in exceptional spaces of radical imagination & transformation, the encounter with ‘self and other’ leaves indelible marks on our soma and psyche which we take back into our quotidian lives with new maps. “Rewilding” creativity, curiosity, compassion, courage and wonder not only liberates vast inner resources, but also helps us navigate such complex times in the world around us.

An immersive itinerary of daily Liquid AsanaTM Vinyasa & meditation, live music, dance, and creative process/somatic art-making nurtured by farm-to-table feasting and the spell of the sensuous that is Tenuta di Paternostro. Olive groves, grazing horses, thermal springs, volcanic lakes, local artisan villages, a rolling countryside, and ridiculous laughter included.
