Nature and Sensuality
Fall 2023 / AMALFI COAST, ITALY
A Women's Wellness Retreat | With Cynthia

YOU'RE GOING TO ABSOLUTELY LOVE IT!
A message from Cynthia
For a long time, I have been dreaming of a women’s wellness retreat in Italy. A retreat that brings together aspects of my own personal journey towards self-love and being fully myself, free to soar in life. Next October I am inviting a select group of women to join me in my adopted land, the Amalfi Coast, where since 1995 I have returned over and over again, always growing as a woman.
I know that as women we sometimes need to just lavish our senses with beauty. I 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.
I have found that time away, in retreat from familiar surroundings, has always allowed me to encounter myself, my desires, my gifts, and my Higher Power in deep and beautiful (and sometimes challenging) ways.
I have also found that the wisdom I knew instinctively as a child is my truth. I believe it may be the truth for all of us: that spending time in the beauty of nature, being spontaneously creative, contact with the healing heart of animals plus just being with myself and the sensations of my body and its connection to the world around me are the most healing and inspiring ways I can experience what it means to just be myself. And as one of my wise teachers says, “When we are ourselves we are in harmony with everything.”
I invite you to join me for a short time of doing just this - silent hikes, sensory swims, tempting tastings, and more.
Thank you from my heart to yours.

I realized I can be open to change and it can be unstructured. I don’t have to control it. I can enjoy my new life without fear. I can just go with the flow, be myself, be playful and open to new adventures without letting the past control my future.she coached me to welcome my feelings of adventure and reassured me I am good enough as I am!

I felt safe and able to let some things go. Cynthia was a calm, kind and effective guide to keep me focused when I was being resistant to releasing the emotions. I appreciated how present she was with me.
Cynthia is gentle and compassionate. I felt safe with her and with the horses. Watching her with them encouraged me. She gently pushed me where I needed to be pushed but also validated and respected my own insights. Her questions and healing presence opened up some deeper truths within myself I needed to hear and know.
