A message from Sofia & Kim

Are you longing to disconnect from the daily grind and invest in a special experience just for you? Do you want more than just a vacation? Do you need a soul-enriching experience alongside other women who long for something similar? Do you desire safety and exploration in a supportive environment?

Don’t allow fear to create regret.  Join a group of like-minded women, make new friends, and discover the life-changing experience of our Nature and Sensuality Retreat to launch you into a new, amazing chapter of life.

 

This fall, we are again inviting a small group of women to join us in Sofia's adopted land, the Amalfi Coast, where, since 1995, she has returned repeatedly, always growing as a woman.

We know that, as women, we sometimes need just to lavish our senses with beauty. We believe this is why so many of us are drawn to Italy. We want to soak in sensory pleasure and bring back the juiciness into our lives.

We have found that time away has always allowed us to encounter our true selves, desires and gifts, and a Higher Power in deep and beautiful ways.

 

Spending time in the beauty of nature and being with the sensations of the body and its connection to the world around us are the most satisfying ways to experience what it means just to be oneself. And as one of our wise teachers says, “When we are ourselves, we are in harmony with everything.”

We invite you to join us for a short time of doing just this - silent hikes, sensory swims, tempting tastings, and more. Thanks from our heart to yours!

. . .  Yoga Retreat Positano, Italy!!!!!

Feel Transformed, Alive, and Free

Watch those clouds roll away and feel like a new woman full of life, faith, and inspiration, thanks to the miracle of a week in paradise. A precious time to feel in touch and in tune, in connection with your destiny.

YOU'RE GOING TO ABSOLUTELY LOVE IT!

What do we do? And how is this retreat different from others?

Our women's transformational retreat in Italy 2024 offers a profound experience connecting to the unspoken problem about recognizing your power, trusting yourself, and connecting to your body and desire. This experience results in re-discovering your center, where no one is leaning on you, and you needn't lean on another. You can stand and sway in your power with a perspective that guarantees more life and less regret. How do we do this? We gather, craft, and curate...experiences! We want you to remember what it feels like to feel beautiful, energetic, sexy, and desirable again! There's no reason to keep putting life on hold. We treat you to an adventure that lets you experience Italy's romance, excitement, and Sensuality! Feast on all of its richness! This is not the typical trip to Italy where you check off your list, ​eat at the recommended restaurants, and see all the tourist traps. "We did a place." Nope. This is being in a place. Knowing where to go, what to eat, and when to experience it. Going under the wave of tourists and exploring and experiencing the more profound, natural beauty underneath. Touching the Earth through walks and foraging, food through special tastings, and the sea while swimming from our own luxurious boat in hidden crystal blue coves. Letting it all go and melt away to be absorbed by Nature and replaced with what only She can give. We've curated places and people with high energy and good vibes, the best times to go there. All of the experiences contribute to a sense of freedom. All of the gifts we've gathered on the journey. Experiencing beauty and pleasure, freedom and wonder, are all healing and, most importantly, satisfying! They fill you up! And best of all... you'll experience it with new friends! Nature & Sensuality means to delight all of your senses with the abundant gifts of Nature. See, smell, taste, hear, and touch beauty! Women feel beautiful, relaxed, happy, joyful, and free after a week with us. They touch their own true Nature in Nature. But we mean luxurious Nature! Pampering, freeing, delighting, sumptuous Nature. Joyful Nature that gets you to engage with it and has its way with you! It's like a perfect breeze blows over and through you and takes all the heaviness, leaving you luminous. We invest so much in beauty from the outside in this American culture. We buy and buy and buy, yet never feel fulfilled. We come home with bags and bags of stuff. Especially stuff to make us look good on the outside. We invest in all these things and get so little return on them. It's like a gaping hole that never gets filled or satisfied, no matter how much we buy. Our soul is hungry, and we are not investing in what feeds it. Feed it with things it loves, and it starts to shine from the inside out. Looking good on the outside comes from that inner glow of feeling full and satisfied. We are retreating away from the world of everyday life, retreating from the ordinary. Leaving it behind and entering into the extraordinary world. And into the extraordinary within ourselves. And we promise...it is still there! It's just usually covered up by the ordinary. Relax, release, let it go, and sink into the Earth. It will be replaced with and fed by Her beauty. ​ The only way you know pleasure is through your body. You have to feel it on your skin, see it through your eyes, taste it on your tongue, inhale it with your nose, and hear it with your ears. Luxuriate your senses and impress pleasure into your body with these experiences. ​ Have someone else take care of ALL the details so you can relax and enjoy. And NOT "work" on yourself. This is about releasing the work, letting go, receiving, and enjoying. Be with others, without giving, just sharing the enjoyment. Having FUN! Playing like a mermaid in the beautiful sea! ​ Traveling with family and partners is excellent...and sometimes a lot of work! Traveling alone is profound and has its place. However, really, what we believe we all want is someone to share it with. Someone who will really know what it feels like and not just what our posts on Instagram look like. That's why it's so lovely to experience this experience alongside other women! They know what it feels like! Our hotel is our home for the retreat. No packing and unpacking, checking in and checking out. This is a trip to experience, immerse, dive deep down into, stay in one center, and move out. Move out into an experience, come back in, and digest it. Going out, absorbing, experiencing, returning home to our hotel and resting. Letting it feed you.

Amalfi Coast yoga retreat participant

In September of 2022 I had the privilege of traveling to Italy with Sofia and her group of lovely women on our sensuality tour.  We soaked up all of the beauty and deliciousness that the Amalfi coast has to offer.  We toured a working lemon and olive farm and were served a home cooked while drinking local wine. On another day we foraged for food and cooked a fabulous lunch in Positano. Cynthia has a deep knowledge and love for Italy and helped us to feel at home while enjoying our surroundings. Our day spent on a privately charted boat near  the island of capri while sipping champagne was especially memorable.  Having Cynthia as our guide we were able to avoid “touristy” spots and enjoy Italy as only natives typically do. The trip was priced well and a great value. If you want to experience Italy like a local this is the way to do it!

I’ll never hesitate to Travel with Cindy and Inspired Travel. She has a real art for ease and practicality. I appreciated that We didn’t waste any time switching from hotel to hotel, but landed in one beautiful spot and fanned out from there. Our trip had such a beautiful flow to it. It seemed that we did just the thing we were in the mood for each day. Shopping on day one of course! Cindy has such a beautiful calm presence. She guides without being overbearing. She listens and accommodates. She has a constant eye on making the trip special for each person.

Experiencing Italy through the lense that Cindy provided was life changing. It came at such a key time in my life where I needed to step out of the fast paced and masculine/“grind” workplace, lifestyle and country that so many of us are born into to reconnect with my feminine nature in a place (and with a leader) that really embodies this energy. She led us through the land in a week in a way that she learned to experience it over many years- slowly, with intention, and being present. We benefited from her personal connections and knowledge she’s curated over the years she lived in Italy, and it felt like we were visiting distant relatives rather than being tourists. It was so relaxing having the itinerary thoughtfully and beautifully orchestrated so that we could enter into a flow state and really experience this place. One of my favorite parts was a cooking class where we foraged for herbs and ingredients on a walk through the town, then prepared a delicious meal in an outdoor kitchen with Slow Food chefs, overlooking the breathtaking coast. This is the best way to travel and experience a new country and way of life!

Cindy curated a series of authentic experiences to give our group a taste of the culture, landscape, history and of course, the food and wine!  She incorporated something for everyone including time to relax, sightsee and shop.  My most favorite moments were yoga at sunrise overlooking the bay and the silent walk at sunset followed by a sensory dinner by the sea.  It has always been a dream of mine to travel to Italy.  I am so grateful to Cindy for creating the experience of a lifetime.  I will cherish these memories dearly!

This was such a unique and beautiful experience.  Cindy creates an environment that really encourages reconnection to our own sensuality and a deep connection to the Earthly culture of southern Italy.  It’s always magical to visit a place with someone native to it, but to have a retreat run by someone who has been immersed in that place and also grounded in where I’m from made it really special.  She speaks the language, has a community, and knows the secret, magical places. It was definitely not like anything I have done before and I would recommend this experience to anyone.
