Wellness retreat ''The silence of the lake''

You are absolute silence. You cannot create peace if you search among the chaos of your thoughts. But here, you can observe, breathe, and wait. Silence is just that: it is meditation itself.


From Friday 23 June 2023 15:00 to Monday 26 June 2023 11:00


Agriturismo Castello di Vezio, Lake Como


From EUR 650


About this event

Slow down, breathe and rediscover union with the forms of nature: take part in the wellness retreat "The silence of the lake" from 23 to 26 June in the beautiful Castello di Vezio agritourism on Lake Como.

The retreat is for those who wish to dedicate time to themselves and let go of what is no longer needed, listening to themselves through their bodies and thus finding more outstanding balance.


What we will do

·       QiYoga classes

We will work on the body and mind, consciously performing exercises to feel stronger and increase concentration. The harmony generated by the simultaneous work of these two elements will help us establish a real connection between body, mind and soul.

·       Meditation

We will learn about and practise three meditation techniques, including mindfulness.

We will learn how to dissolve the constant flow of thoughts and seek silence within ourselves, getting in touch with parts that are often invisible to us.

·       Forest immersions

Immersed in nature, we will rediscover the simplicity of our surroundings and better understand our reactions to stimuli, regaining clarity in the natural cycle of events inside and outside of us.

·       Introduction to the Theatre of Awareness 

We will connect with our creative Being through play rituals and practices with a deep root in the Art of Theatre. We will explore our authentic nature, opening ourselves to the ability to respond to the challenges of everyday life differently.


To participate, you do not need any specific training: our activities are inclusive and cater to those who want to deepen their practice and those who want to discover it.
