COME TO ITALY to discover the beauty within yourself

(Limited to 18 people)

This pilgrimage is designed to help awaken the inner beauty, self-expression, and knowing that often lie hidden within each of us. By visiting special places of energy, art, and beauty in Italy and spending time in beautiful natural settings, we can help ourselves reclaim, revitalize, and rejoice in this wellspring of intuition and incredible beauty that lives inside each one of us. Using art and journaling activities while we travel, we can connect on deeper levels with the creative self-expression of our own inner beauty.

Travel with creative artist Dana Andersen and Italian expert Mary Kieran to Italy to experience the incredible art and classic beauty that Roma and Firenze have to share with us, as we learn to honor our own priceless treasures within.

Stroll the canals and bridges of Venice and reclaim your playfulness amid the Gothic treasures of this living museum.

Climb the same cobblestone streets in Assisi that Saint Francis walked and reconnect with your own effortless joy.

Join us in Spello for the Festa Infiorata as we help to decorate the sidewalks with flower petals depicting intricate designs and classic artwork for this colorful spring celebration.

Come with us to Ananda Assisi where our journey winds down, and we can reflect upon our travels and make plans to internalize and stay in touch with the vibrant beauty we have rediscovered inside ourselves during our time in Italy.
