Luxury Italian Hilltop Meditation & Breathwork Retreat by George S Peterson with Jillian L Hannah, Sydney I Smith, and Maddy Gray (8 Days / 7 Nights)

Indulge in an enriching 8-day, 7-night Italian Hilltop Meditation & Breathwork retreat set upon a sprawling 9-acre estate nestled atop a secluded hill in the idyllic Le Marche region of Italy – a locale hailed as the world’s 2nd best travel destination. This meticulously crafted experience is tailored to offer rejuvenation, serenity, and inner harmony.

For those unacquainted with Vedic Meditation, the retreat provides comprehensive, step-by-step instruction by the accomplished Vedic Meditation teacher, George S Peterson. Alternatively, if attendees have already completed a Vedic Meditation course under the guidance of a qualified instructor, they will have the privilege of learning the “Rounding” technique during the retreat – a method that amplifies the Vedic Meditation experience. Each participant will receive a personalized protocol that promises to imbue feelings of nurturance, relaxation, and vitality.

Daily routines will encompass invigorating yoga sessions led by Jillian L Hannah, an adept Yoga Teacher and Breathwork Healer. Throughout the retreat, Jillian will also conduct multiple sessions of Breathwork Healing, guiding participants towards a deeper sense of well-being. Moreover, engaging knowledge talks featuring George and Jillian will grace each day, enriching the experience further.

At this Italian Hilltop Meditation & Breathwork retreat, culinary delights will abound as participants relish three wholesome meals per day, a mere 10-minute journey from the Adriatic Sea. The gastronomic offerings are entirely plant-based, and whenever possible, sourced from local organic produce. Each meal, crafted from scratch, draws upon ingredients procured from nearby markets. The retreat ensures accommodation for specific dietary needs, accommodating all preferences.

Immersive encounters are in store, including captivating in-villa pasta-making classes and outdoor pursuits such as invigorating hikes. Throughout the retreat, an aura of relaxation, rejuvenation, and reprieve will prevail, inviting attendees to unwind and replenish their spirits.
