Our added value: SHARING

In this historical period, we believe it is more important than ever to create experiences that restore a sense of belonging and the strength of unity. Imagine being in a nature-immersed setting where you gather with a group of people to experience a conscious and collaborative community life.

The journey begins with a welcome and introduction phase, where everyone shares their motivations and expectations regarding the experience. This creates a climate of trust and openness, which is essential for building authentic and deep relationships within the group.
Next, we move on to the phase of defining collective intentions and communicating the plan of action for activities and spaces. This leads to the development of the experiential program, which is closely connected to the surrounding nature. During the activities, moments of reflection and sharing are created, where each person has the opportunity to express their emotions and experiences, feeling valued and supported.
Finally, at the end of the journey, we come together in a closing circle where we share feedback, benefits gained, and outline possible future paths. This phase is also participatory and aims to involve all participants in co-creating a shared path of growth and development.

During the Mindfulness Retreat in Nature you will have the opportunity to:

☘️ Experience sharing in a small group 

☘️ Experience a simple and fulfilling lifestyle, with new healthy and conscious habits

☘️ Convert meditation and contemplation in a daily habit

☘️ Deepen the practice of Yoga with a specialised teacher surrounded by nature

☘️ Observe, recognize and transform limiting thought patterns and emotional blocks

☘️ Learn how to manage relationships and assertive communication through the tool of the circle 

☘️ Using Sociocracy as a decision-making model and promoting the empowerment of participants.

☘️ Bring you closer to Zen Natural Agriculture, Self-Sufficiency and Permaculture principles

☘️ Help manifest a New World by cultivating trust and gratitude

Awakening the innate connection we have with Mother Earth and our higher Self





What people say

Nature as a refuge

At Terramore, you will have at your disposal two hectares of nature surrounded by wooded hills, enriched by majestic oaks and centuries-old olive trees.
We have created corners for contemplation and relaxation in the shade of trees, and we are sure that you will find your own space, both to be with yourself and to socialize with like-minded souls.
The area is abundant with walks to contemplate nature and its rich wild flora. Additionally, we not far from the river, where you can find quiet and small protected coves for a refreshing swim at the beginning of summer.

During the community life retreat, you will experience nature in a simple and comfortable way, and you will be hosted in a comfortable tent.

In general, at Terramore, you will find a “minimal” and sober style, to give attention only to what is necessary and to do without everything that is superfluous and that can distract.

Community Building & Open Space Technology

The Community Life Retreat is a true experiential learning laboratory through shared and participatory management.

In the morning, we will carry out activities related to self-sufficiency and soil regeneration, while in the afternoon, we will focus on personal growth and heart regeneration using the open space technology to create a dynamic, interactive, and participatory learning environment, promoting the sharing of knowledge among participants.

We invite you to practice the 3H (heart-head-hands) method, putting the mind and hands at the service of the heart, co-creating the various daily activities necessary for the community routine. Meal preparation will be managed by the same group through a common fund (included in the contribution), and the harvest offered as a gift from Mother Nature.

As in a family, you will be an active part of the group to make daily life function in harmony with the environment and people.

Ecology applied to Life

Terramore offers retreats in a countryside that lends itself to becoming an oasis of biodiversity following the Zen principles of natural agriculture by Masanobu Fukuoka.
In the land there are ancient varieties of olive trees (about 70) which offer an excellent extra virgin olive oil for self-consumption.
Furthermore, in 2020 a food forest project was launched with hundreds of plant varieties including fruit trees, support trees, bushes, shrubs and aromatic plants (lavender, sage, rosemary, helichrysum, oregano, marjoram, thyme, echinacea, etc.) .
Some “swales” have been created in the steep soil with the aim of retaining rainwater and improving the management of this important natural resource for the creation of a natural ecosystem that brings abundance and biodiversity.
The energy comes exclusively from solar panels, this makes us live with great consideration and gratitude towards the Father Sun.
To preserve the purity of the soil, we only use biodegradable soaps and we reuse phyto-purified water to water the garden.

* Personalized Hatha Yoga sessions, individual AeroYoga lessons, Reiki treatments, Natural Cosmetics workshops, Sound Healing workshops and Sound Massages with Tibetan Bells will be available upon request.

Mindfulness Retreat Program

The days at Terramore are marked and organized based on the weather and the season. Each retreat is different and unique, with much of the initiatives being decided by tuning into the frequency of the group.

To manage the timing of community activities, the Circle and Sociocracy tools will be used.
The daily routine follows the following organic and cyclical structure:

  • Opening Circle
    Exploration of needs and creation of intentions
  • Regeneration of the Earth
    Experiential learning and sustainable practices
  • Regeneration of the Heart
    Personal growth activities (Open Space)
  • Gratitude Circle
    Sharing and feedback session

You are invited to step into a collective experiment to leave behind “scarcity thinking”  and explore what happens with a mindset of abundant gifting and receiving.

The availability of the access contribution is limited and is made possible when other participants decide to give a support contribution, which can then be used to facilitate another participant who is experiencing economic difficulties.
