Seven Day Retreat at Castello di Titignano – Summer 2022

Description

Retreats are a wonderful way to connect to the teaching and to the community beginning with dinner on the first day, followed by a short welcome and the first meeting. There will be two meetings on each full day, finishing with lunch on the final day. Morning meetings consist of silent and guided meditation; afternoon meetings will be dialogues with Rupert during which time attendees can discuss any questions that arise during the course of the week.

There will be free time between meetings to explore the venue and enjoy the company of fellow attendees and the opportunity to come together for meals and socialise.

About Castello di Titignano: Situated in a 10th-century castle surrounded by vineyards and overlooking the Lake of Corbara Castello di Titignano is an extraordinarily beautiful setting for the summer retreat. There are plenty of areas for guests to gather and socialise, including an outdoor pool and areas to sit and take in the stunning views. There is ample countryside to walk in or explore the local area.

COVID-19 safety protocols: Castello di Titignano staff and the team will take all necessary and recommended precautions for the safety of guests and will observe the guidelines in place by local authorities. Niya will post updates on the COVID-19 regulations in the lead up to the event, as we have a clearer idea of what the requirements will be at the time.

Accommodation

Due to the limited accomodation available at Titignano itself we are not able to offer single rooms on site. There are twin, double and shared rooms available at Castello di Titignano along with the option to camp on site or commute into the venue each day.

If you intend to commute to the venue each day; please note that lunches and dinners are included in the ticket price. This ticket type does not include accommodation and is suitable only for those staying in the local area who would like to come to the meetings each day.

There are two options for camping in the lovely two person tents, which will be provided and set up with sleeping mats. A single camping ticket is for one person to use one of the two man tents alone; a double camping ticket is for two people to share one of the two man tents.  All meals are included in the camping option along with access to shower facilities which will be provided on site. Please bring bedding and towels.
