Description

Loving Kindness Retreat in Tuscany

A nourishing week of beautiful self-care in the cradle of magnificent Tuscany. Immerse in the sensory practices of loving kindness, yoga, meditation, flowers, fauna, sunrise, sunset, vino, lovely cuisine, amazing humans, lots of laughs, tears, love, joy and everything in between.

You’ll come home to your body and feel more equanimity in mind, body and heart. Prepare for enchanted moments in the warm autumn of October, time to appreciate the essence of sacred land, sampling the gorgeous regional food and wine, and receiving uncommon hospitality.

This retreat is ideal for those interested in establishing a yoga & meditation practice, or those who are interested in deepening a newer practice or getting inspired about a long term practice. Each morning there will be asana, guided meditation, and dharma talks.

Yoga classes will be gentle and restorative in nature. Guests are invited to look into old patterns that are ready to be shed, new ways to be in their body and time out for self-compassion.

After lunch, guests have free afternoons to take a slow stroll throughout the grounds, nap, get a massage, read a book under a tree, or simply pause into rest. A second yoga and meditation class will be offered most afternoons.

Accommodation

Fattoria Del Colle is a gorgeous, remote hilltop estate in Tuscany where time stands still. It is located amid the only all-female owned winery in Italy. Each meal is made just for our retreat group by an award winning chef, and served on white linen table cloths. All views from the retreat campus are of vineyards and rolling hills as far as the eye can see. It is truly an opportunity to slow down, breathe deeply, and savour life.

These retreats aim to show you a new part of the earth and a new part of your radiant self. To help you deepen your practice of yoga and meditation and your other unique interests. To create a setting where you feel rooted and safe even while you are adrift in the world.

To become still and fully present in your life. You will experience the grace of community that we all desperately need in our modern day world of isolation, but you also will receive personal attention from Jane and time to explore on your own. You will be seen. You will be nourished. You will have sanctuary for your soul. And you will emerge renewed.

Cuisine

Fattoria Del Colle is the family estate of Donatella Cinelli Colombini, who is a celebrity in Tuscany and the award winning entrepreneur of the only all-female owned winery in Italy, where they produce the memorable Brunello wine.

Donatella’s ancestors first owned land in the Montalcino area in the 16th century, and recent generations have passed property down the female line. When Cinelli Colombini inherited the estate from her mother in the late 1990s, she went in search of a female staff at Siena’s oenology school.

The vintners are all women, as is the winemaker, a unique situation in Italy, a flagship for women in the wine business. The winery, Il Casato Prime Donne makes their wine on and around the estate of Fattoria Del Colle, and retreat guests will not only get to walk among the vineyards, but take a wine tour, and drink these wines with each meal.

The distinctive element of the wine is its elegance: red harmonies able to last in time. As you sit at the white linen lined tables and sip your organic local wine, you’ll indulge and appreciate the gorgeous regional, organic food from the in-house chef of an award winning restaurant.

You’ll feel cherished by the warm hospitality of the wait staff as they serve exquisite, lavish, and healthful Italian meals for lunch and dinner. Vegan and vegetarian options are available, and the chef accommodates all dietary
restrictions.

What past guests have said

“If you are reading about Jane’s retreats, all I can say is go. Go and be swept up by Italy, by the food, the sun, the belly laughs, the smell of truffle oil. Life is so busy, uncertain and often stressful, sometimes we need to give ourselves the gift of a break, away from everything that pulls at our attention; sitting on a yoga mat, held by the
radiant wisdom of Jane is probably exactly what you need.” Sas Petherick, Coach, Mentor, Podcast Host, Loving Kindness in Toscana Retreat, 2018

“Jane is the embodiment of loving kindness. Her leadership is a divine feminine light, deeply rooted in soil of Tuscany. You will be so well cared for, and your body, heart and spirit will thank you. The entire week was ACES! I am going home forever changed.” Marcy Dmytrow, Loving Kindness Retreat with Jane Reeves, September 2019

“Jane speaks with an open heart, with ease, with love, with kindness. I immediately fell in love with this radiant human being. In September 2019, I found myself in the Tuscan countryside at the beautiful and awe inspiring Fattoria Dell Colle at the Radiant Jane Retreat. The retreat exceeded any expectations I could have ever possibly imagined. Jane opens her arms and invites you to share in a journey of loving kindness and self care through mindful meditation teachings and practice. I have been cared for, loved, and nourished. This has been a life altering experience. I departed feeling centered, richer for coming, and ready to take on the world!” Sas Petherick, Coach, Mentor, Podcast Host, Loving Kindness in Toscana Retreat, 2018

“From beginning to end, I enjoyed each and every moment of the retreat. Fattoria del Colle, Tuscany, Italy, what a breathtaking place to come for a retreat. The people there treated us like family. Jane is warm, authentic, and open. Personally, this was the kind of trip I was looking for and needing.” Amy, Metzger, Sacred Astrology Retreat featuring Anne Ortelee, May 2019
