Felicia Grant and the Dragonfly Experience invite you to Spread your Wings and Fly to the heart of Tuscany, Italy  to Eat Play Love your way into this amazing personal experience of inner peace, deep relaxation, amazing Italian culture, food, wine and pampering. Far beyond a yoga, meditation or spa retreat, this Dragonfly Experience takes you on a personal journey with a small group of like minded women all looking for Italian Dolce Vita “The Sweetness of life.”

Eat Play Love Experience includes:

+ 7 nights / 8 days – Il Borghino a boutique yoga and holistic retreat venue.

+ Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner – Private Chef prepared local sourced deliciously fresh dishes based on what is in season and the region’s specialties; including pastas, cheeses, organic wine, olive oil and honey produced in the surrounding agricultural area.

+ Optional activities include: walking tours, cycling, wine tours can be arranged.

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 use the sauna, or take stroll through museums or downtown Lucca, socialize, and schedule spa treatments. I will also be available for Private coaching sessions for those of you that want to go deeper during their stay!

 

As women, we all too often find ourselves giving to everyone around us and not truly honoring our deepest needs or taking time for ourselves to fully heal from the challenges that life can bring. Throughout our week together, we will create a safe and sacred space to honor your stories, your strengths, and the wounds that have made you – your unique and fully whole – divine self thru the use of meditation, yoga, awareness practices, nature and sisterhood to witness and support each other as our own uniqueness unfolds.

 

What’s Not Included?

Airfare, spa treatments, and spa gratuities are not included. Additional local activities and extra excursions are available for an additional cost.

  • WHAT IF I’VE NEVER/RARELY TRAVELED ALONE?

Being in a new place enlivens the senses and sets the stage for growth. It makes you more aware of the beauty in yourself and the world around you. Just because you haven’t done something yet, does not mean you’re not capable of it!

Remember to always meet fear with truth. Don’t tell yourself a story that limits you, you are stronger than you know! How wonderful is it that this work on yourself actually begins right now?

  • I’M FEELING SCARED ABOUT INVESTING IN MYSELF. DO YOU HAVE ADVICE ABOUT THIS?
We so get it! Making this choice can sometimes be met with resistance, especially if you’re not used to investing in yourself. This is why we’ve come up with a number of different rooming options. As women we put others first. This is your opportunity to invest in yourself!! It’s like putting on your oxygen mask first!
  • WHAT HAPPENS IF I’M COMING ALONE BUT I’M SHARING A ROOM?

We will take great care in working to connect you with the right roommate! Think of this as a beautiful invitation to step outside of your comfort zone and connect with someone new. The best of friendships have started with a DragonflyExperience.

Also, make sure to share with your friends and family know that you’re attending the retreat! You might be surprised that there’s someone special who will want to join you.
