Get Grounded at Maraviglia in Tuscany

about this event

Located 1 hour from Florence, immersed in an olive grove and surrounded by oak trees, Maraviglia’s undeniable energy offers a truly healing experience. Maraviglia became a space to practice mindfulness and gratitude, strengthening their belief that living in a healthy, balanced, natural manner is a way to make positive change for ourselves and for others.

Surrounded by the countryside during the day, and enveloped in the rejuvenating silence of star-filled skies at night, Maraviglia embodies all the qualities that have the power to heal, instill tranquility and rejuvenate our bodies and minds. With nourishing locally grown organic food, you will experience immediate pleasure and cleansing.

During our 6 night and 7 day experience, you will encounter Kundalini sessions, self discovery workshops, a biodynamic wine tasting, thermal baths, a Tuscan cooking class and more.

We will go on nature hikes, explore the beautiful olive grove (that lives on the property!) and deep dive into Human Design with New York based leadership coach, Erin Claire, and Touchpoint founder, Jared Matthew Weiss.

Human Design is the science of understanding yourself.

Human Design brings together ancient wisdom – Astrology, the Ching, the Chakras, the Kabbalah – with modern science – Quantum Physics, Genetics – to give you an operating manual for how you are uniquely designed to make decisions and communicate, making it easier to flow and materialize what you truly want in life with every decision you make. It is the first system of its kind.

These workshops will be a deep dive into your unique design to make decisions and navigate your relationships and career with the most ease and least resistance as your most authentic self.

Human Design is not about changing who you are, but about giving you full permission to be who you’ve always been.

Francesco Piattelli, Maraviglia Founder

Born and raised at Maraviglia – Francesco Piattelli will be your guide through all cultural experiences, sharing his knowledge of Tuscany with you during the excursions. He is a business owner in New York, spending his time between Italy and the US.

Living in New York, he noticed a need to escape the hectic city lifestyle. This desire led him back to his hometown, where he transformed his family home into a stunning retreat venue. He found that country living provides a powerful setting to heal and will passionately open the window to an authentic Tuscan experience.

Francesca Gambato, Yoga Instructor

Francesca Gambato, a native Italian, is part of the Maraviglia family and will be our local Tuscan yoga instructor during this experience. Francesca recently completed a 500 hour teacher training certificate in Rishikesh, India.

Her classes are dynamic, yet gentle. She believes in a good balance between (physical) effort and relaxation. By practicing with Francesca, you will be able to discover a new level of awareness – how you feel and what you truly need, both physically and mentally. Francesca always mentions the experience of yoga is different every time we come to the mat; every day it means something different to each of us.

The energy flows where intention goes.
