This is Puglia, land between two seas, a crossroads of cultures and experiences. Be prepared to celebrate the best of each! Some highlights include centurion olive trees, quaint stone “Trulli”, medieval castles, baroque architecture, traditional music, dances and festivities, and crystalline seas.

Puglian culture is a blend of passion and simplicity, with focus on family and friendship. People take time to greet one another and pursue a friendly conversation.

During the retreat we will explore the signature energy of each phase, and create rituals to fully embody them - each of us in our own unique way. This is aligned to our nature but something we lack in our patriarchal society.

Held and supported within the power of a women’s circle, we will re-instate a connection with our fundamental nature. We will experience the following rites of passage and live each archetype to its full potential,

  • The rite of passage of menarche, celebrating our arrival into womanhood with our first bleed.
  • The rite of passage of mothering our inner girl.
  • The rite of passage of knowing our wild pleasure intimately.
  • The rite of passage of menopause, stepping into our wise woman powers with our last bleed.

So that we learn to be sovereign in our womanhood and:

  • Heal the wounds of our inner girl
  • Tap into abundance and creativity
  • Be sexual and sensual on our own terms
  • Embrace the beauty and freedom of old age
  • Day 1 (Friday) - Journey into Self
  • Day 2 (Saturday) - Journey into Inner Girl
  • Day 3 (Sunday) - Journey into Creative Woman
  • Day 4 (Monday) - Journey into Wild Woman
  • Day 5 (Tuesday) - Journey into Medicine Woman
  • Day 6 (Wednesday) - Journey into Completion

La Luna Nel Pozzo is a theater housed in a traditional stone “Masseria,” or farmhouse, from the mid-nineteenth century, a cultural center nestled among the majestic olive trees in the Puglian countryside near Ostuni.

The name expresses hope for an oasis which can nourish new art forms, creating opportunities for fruitful creative encounters, where one can find the environment and the time to realize one’s desires.

The Puglian kitchen is famous for its wholesome ingredients, both from the sea and from the earth, simple and flavorful.

You will have the opportunity to sample many of the dishes of the Puglian tradition, dishes of Mediterranean delight. You will find the colors of the season’s fruits and vegetables, the knowledge of the pastors in the justly-renowned cheeses, olive oils from ancient trees, and artisan sourdough bread made from local, fresh stone-ground flours.
