A retreat in Italy with Morgan Cowie and Lisa Messina

JULY 4 - JULY 11, 2020


Sometimes we need to step out of routine and allow ourselves to be captivated by a place that is at once both wondrously different and somehow achingly familiar. Sometimes, we need to go away to truly come home.

At our center, we are as joyful as children and have an innate capacity to receive all the gifts - large and small - the world has to offer. In the beauty of Puglia, Italy, we will rediscover our ability to feel vital, whole, and at home with ourselves.


Morgan Cowie and Lisa Messina are teaming up for the second time to offer a retreat designed specifically for you to come back hime. Reunite with the simple delight and wonder experienced when approaching life with curiosity, courage, and vulnerability.

Treat your body to a delicious balance of dynamic movement and healing therapeutics. Treat your heart and mind with the deeper tenets of the practice which return us to compassion and joy.

Morgan and Lisa each bring more than a decade of study in various forms of holistic healing practices including yoga, pilates, self-massage, functional movement, dance, therapeutics, philosophy, psychotherapy, breathing practices and meditation. This retreat is suitable for those of all levels of practice.

Exploring Puglia, Italy alongside Lisa Messina was genuinely the single most raw and beautiful experience of my life. The holistic environment of the retreat itself felt unique in ways that pulled me closer to myself through the most delicious food, deep and consistent practice, genuine company and authenticity. I felt no surprise in feeling at home in a place I had never been. There is something to be said about a family-run retreat centre, especially the travelling with someone like Lisa who provides only the most love, support, and guidance for us all. Lisa, as an experienced retreat leader, traveller, and teacher held space for the exact growth I had only dreamed of experiencing.
