Danena Sicily is a community retreat destination offering a revitalizing fusion of activities centered around yoga, nature, meditation, music, various body treatments, purification, and healthy food. The main location is a 19th-century farmhouse - La Masseria - situated in the luscious natural landscape of southeastern Sicily surrounded by 80 acres of farm and the breathtaking Mediterranean sea.

As well as offering beautiful and peaceful accommodations, Danena Sicily offers wellness retreats, tailored yoga classes, detox programs, Pilates, meditation and relaxation sessions, superfood cuisine, use of the outdoor pool, creative workshops, cooking classes, and various life-enhancing practices. La Masseria is a beautifully restored farmhouse from 1800, set in amongst olive and almond groves. Danena Sicily has six apartments and 13 bedrooms and can accommodate up to 25 people. The bedrooms are all very individual and charming.

The yoga studio is a beautifully restored pitch roof barn and can accommodate up to 25 people, fully equipped with all props, with an outdoor wooden shala overlooking the orange garden. There are a freshwater infinity pool, loads of different patios and living spaces where to eat or simply relax, two massage rooms, and a stunning sunset terrace.

There is plenty to do, walking through plantations of almonds, olives, and watermelons fields or cycling on trails amongst the groves, having a massage from one of the great therapists, swimming in a magical pool and, of course, going to the wonderful beaches or Sicilian historical towns all very nearby.

Program

You do not have to be a Buddhist to benefit greatly from Buddhist psychology and practices. Even though the Buddha lived and taught over 2000 years ago, the human plight (read: mind) has not changed that much, meaning you can reap the same immense benefit from practicing that he did and which eventually led him to become awakened. Buddhism is not something to believe in, it is something to explore for yourself. Come and see how these practices can help you lead a happier, kinder life. Good for you, good for others.

You will start by getting out of your heads and into the body. Then you move into concentration and contemplation practices. The idea is to actually show up for your lives, the way they are unfolding moment by moment. Here and now. And in the process becoming less anxious and less self-absorbed. During the week, you will practice Vigorous flow yoga and meditation in the morning. The afternoon sessions will change from day to day. Sometimes, you may practice Yin or Restorative yoga. At other times, you might listen to and discuss Buddhist teachings or have longer meditations or group or partner work. You will have scheduled silences. Digital detox is highly encouraged. So is journaling.

Daily schedule

  • 07:00 - 09:00 Flow yoga and meditation
  • 09:15 Breakfast
