Italy + Costa Rica Retreat

Dragonfly Experience Italy Retreat in Umbria

“You will be immersed in the beauty, slow place and the healing energy of Il Tesoro surrounded by endless countryside, rolling hills and olives trees Illuminating your Spiritual Path.”


In June of 2019 I was fortunate (Pre-covid) to lead my first but not my last retreat in Umbria. Umbria is described as “the green heart of Italy” and it truly is. With the rolling hills, countryside, hunting dogs and Castle’s looming in the background it set the perfect experience for my Eat, Play and Love Women’s Retreat. We stayed at a Agriturismo Il Tesoro owned by two charming Italians Rita and Massimo. This farm has been in their family for over 25 years and was a wedding gift to them from Rita’s parents. Each morning we woke up to the espresso and the most wonderful breakfast most of which was baked by Rita’s 72 year old mother Carmine that comes to work each day out of love for her guests! We saw parts of Italy that no ones sees in the big cities and experienced Italy “Italian style”.

Some of the highlights of this Women’s retreat for me was our visit to civita di bagnoregio a 7th century  etruscan city that has stood for centuries before and after the Roman Empire rise and fall. We visited a sacred castle and burial ground pictured below and the Picasso of leather, world renowned Stefano Bottega Conticelli.

I know this will not be my last retreat in Italy as it truly was a life changing experience!

From the moment you arrive at the retreat on Saturday evening until you pack to leave the following Saturday morning, experienced facilitator, Felicia Grant will lead you on a quiet exploration back to the person you were born to be. You will walk quietly in nature, sit joyfully in circle, journal and meditate, explore long lost pieces of your self, stroll through charming rustic towns, explore the olive groves, and gather each evening to celebrate the beauty of our community of women. We included big juicy time chunks so you can use your personal time to take a nap, connect with nature, relax in a hammock with a book, take a dip in the pool or schedule a massage.  Felicia will also be available for Private coaching sessions for those of you that want to go deeper during their stay!



Costa Rica “Pura Vida” means Pure Life

Covid has stopped most international travel or at least easy international travel for most of us. My intention for 2022 is to revisit one of my most favorite retreats of 2017 Costa Rica.

Costa Rica is a small country in South America sandwiched between Nicaragua and Panama rich in culture and heritage. Beautiful rainforests, coffee plantations (some of the best coffee in the world) rivers and oceans. We visited waterfalls, butterfly sanctuaries and some guests enjoyed a day of white water rafting. 

Costa Rica is a place who’s leaders have given back the beauty and diversity to life in restoring it’s forests of Mother Earth. To stay in touch with this new retreat as your plans grow, please subscribe below.

 This 7 night Dragonfly Experience Retreat will be all inclusive including day trips, yoga, meditation, sound healing and much much more to enrich the soul……
