Living Light
A Journey to the Lightness of the Heart

Donatella Moltisanti
Do you find yourself pulled down by old ideas and experiences that trap your mind into surviving and keep you fighting within yourself? Do you want to move on and let go but memories and anger keep you in the same cycles of thoughts?
Often we don't realize that our inner life needs a cleanup and a reorganization to allow our soul to breathe and for the life flow to stream back in.
Unknowingly, you may be carrying the burdens of your days in your heart, exhaust your vital force and create obstacles in your life.
This way of being it keeps you hooked in a loop of exhausting ups and downs. If that's the case, your heart is paying the price of carrying the heavy burdens of past experiences translating them into anger, guilt, judgment, and ultimately keeping you in a state of pain.
The Living Light Retreat is designed to help you recognize the nature of the burdens that your heart is carrying and will gently walk you into a space of:

Understanding - To allow the life lessons inherent to your experiences to be understood and assimilated.

Forgiveness - To know how to process forgiveness towards yourself and others and allow a new path of abundance to enter your life.

Compassion - To allow your heart to soften and bring a new color in your vision.

Release - To clear old stagnant energy to create a clean new slate.

Expansion - To open yourself to the larger part of yourself and welcome a new beginning filled with Light.

Taking time for yourself is essential to bring back the lightness of your Spirit, to go back to your life feeling grounded and centered, to experience your reality with higher levels of energy.

Allow yourself to take time in the beautiful Island of Sicily, to immerse your body and soul in beauty and the regenerating energy of the Sicilian Sun and the Mediterranean Sea.
The amazing, irresistible energy of Sicily and the healing experience will capture your heart, delight your soul, and leave its stamp on your being, long after you leave... guaranteed!!

Many clients report a renewed inner drive, a deeper experience of Self Love, and develop the motivation to make conscious choices that serve their well-being.

Artmaking, Silence, & Nature
Make art like never before

Artmaking_ silence_ and nature
"Nothing short of transformative."
"No question: a life-changing experience."
"An incredibly healing week for me."
"The Silent Art Residency CHANGED MY LIFE. I *just* registered for this summer and can't wait to be back in this sacred container."
The Artmonk Retreat and Silent Art Residency are weeklong silent retreats aimed at creativity. The Artmonk Retreat offers more meditation and more guidance around the artmaking. The Silent Art Residency has less meditation so that the whole day open for your self-directed artmaking. The two programs run back-to-back so that you can participate in both. Both retreats feature lovingly-prepared homegrown organic food, stunning nature, intimate group sizes, and 1-on-1 meetings with the retreat leaders.
No experience necessary.
All creative forms are welcome.
Save $100 when you participate in both programs.
