FAQ: ovvero tutte le domandi frequenti che ci avete fatto
What's a Retreat?
A retreat is a journey of spiritual nature. ‘Retreat’, means ‘to withdraw, to drawback’ from your world. Far from your usual life, far from your society. Our retreats bring you to a place you don't know along with other likeminded women.
Who is it for?
Our retreats are for women of all age, all nationalities and all backgrounds. For women who are looking to find themselves and for women who already did. For women that are curious, skheptical, shy, extroverted. For spirituality and travel lovers or for those who never traveled or are scared to travel alone. For women who want to shine.
It's not for you if...
After doing this for a while we became pretty selective. We care about protecting our partecipants and assuring a beautiful experience to everyone and guarantee harmony among our groups. So this retreats are not for you if you are coming just because you don't know who to go on a vacation with. They are not for you if you are looking for a fancy, luxury experience to brag about with your friends and get a ton of likes on instagram. They are not for you if you aren't open minded and willing to adapt. They are not for you if you complain about everything (weather and hygiene conditions, food, insects, people). They are not for you if you are used to judge others or talk behind people's back. They are not for you if shopping, elephant riding and taking selfies are the main activities on your list. They are not for you if you aren't looking for personal growth. Got it? ;)
Are man allowed?
No. We love men but these retreats are designed around women needs (Man and Women are very very different beings). We want the focus of our trips to be our inner journey and we don't want our sexuality to get in the way (we are humans after all!).
Although our trips are for women only, some of our themed workshops will be open to men.
Payment is by bank transfer. Generally, it can be broken into 2 or 3 installments so that anyone can participate. Bank transfer details and all directives are sent by mail at the time of booking.
