Umbria

Magical hillsides and majestic mountains, ancient villages, friendly people, sumptuous food and wine, wildflowers - endless wildflowers, beautiful sunrise and sunsets all add up to a visitors awe-inspiring impression of Umbria. Umbria is often called Italy's green heart for its nature parks. Umbria also has one of Italy's largest lakes, spectacular waterfalls, and an interesting mummy collection. Umbria has retained many of Italy’s old-world traditions. In spring the countryside is splashed with red, pink, yellow, purple, and blue wildflowers. In summer it explodes with the vibrant yellow of the sunflowers harvested to make cooking oil. The charm of Umbria derives from its fusion of art, nature, peace and calm, the inspirations behind its various localities that comprise Renaissance masterpieces and small Medieval towns embedded in the hills.

Assisi

Assisi is one of Umbria’s most magnificent hill towns, with buildings that glow pink in the sunset. To boot, it also happens to be the home town of St Francis who preached about the beauty of the natural world. Assisi is an UNESCO World Heritage site. Everything here revolves around its most renowned citizen, St. Francis, Patron Saint of Italy: from the Basilica, which is dedicated to the Saint and contains his tomb, to the hermitage (Eremo delle Carceri), a few kilometers outside the town walls, where St. Francis used to retreat in prayer. Assisi is very welcoming and lively, and its inhabitants seem to want to share their age-old traditions with visitors.

A light nutritious breakfast will be served to complete your morning. The chef will pamper you with three delicious homemade meals a day, using fresh, locally grown ingredients.

In addition to attending the life changing training program, you’ll have plenty of time for yourself each day to spend as you desire. You can go swimming, explore the surrounding, enjoy a lovely massage or take time to relax in the resort. You can also expand your program. Book a wonderful relaxing massage or a cooking lesson from Casa Faustina's creative cook. These activities must be reserved at least 7 days ahead of time.

A wonderful relaxing massage is available at an additional cost and can be booked 7 days prior to the retreat.

    "Mamy's from Dreaming to Achieving. The name says it all. I also had my dreams, but I didn't really know how to achieve them. Through this course I obtained so many insights into my own life, my method, the way I 'put things off'. In short, a mirror is held up in front of you. Taking the step to achieve seems very scary because you want to hold on to the certainties you currently have. Once you have taken the step, it feels as though your dreams can become reality, if you just do it. I always keep in mind that if you take a path you don't like, another path will always come. The dreams remain, but now I also have the courage to do these things! My experience is that my life will only get better because of this."

    "The reason I decided to participate in Mami's training is that last year I came at a point in my life where I felt like I needed more clarity and structure. I felt like I wasn't able to see the wood for the trees, and she helped me with that. The training program has provided me with more structure and unity in my life. In particular, the need to break old patterns. What is special about the training is actually Mami herself. Mami is a very sweet, warmhearted and intelligent woman, who quickly sees things how they are."

    "This was part of how she taught me to change old habits. I can recommend Mamy Coaching to anyone who needs a more well-rounded life. Anyone with a need to alter negative routines in their life and is looking for the right tools to do so."

    "I feel fantastic, I have inner peace, I feel more emotionally stable. My sense of well-being has improved so much that I can barely remember why I went in the first place. I am more in tune with my feelings. I feel that I understand myself and others better, and am therefore able to let go of things more easily, to accept things as they are. Instead of endlessly trying to escape or to prove myself, I can just be me! The sessions were fantastic, extremely practical and enjoyable. I enjoyed the relaxed, convivial atmosphere, and the warmth. After each session, I would go home feeling much better and with a clearer understanding of myself and my life. Extremely educational. Mami's approach is a breath of fresh air. Enjoyable and relaxed, no pressure, yet extremely effective. The spiritual aspect also appeals to me!"

    "I went to Italy for a week with Mami. The journey was already an amazing experience in itself. Once I arrived in Assisi I travelled the last stretch by taxi (about 15 minutes), a friendly Italian taxi driver took me high in the mountains and yes, I had reached Casa Faustina. What a wonderful spot, how peaceful and what friendly people, a beautiful location surrounded by so many olive trees, delicious smells of herbs, plants and lots of art. In addition to the wonderful view, if you go a little further you'll see a lovely swimming pool and believe me, you'll really want to dive in and then enjoy relaxing with a book! A little further you'll find the dining area, next to the kitchen, where absolutely delicious vegetarian food is cooked. This used to be a farm and now they've converted it into an 'agriturismo'. The rooms are simple but clean, and you have everything you need: bed, shower, toilet, kitchen. Not to mention the wonderful space for meditation, yoga and sessions. An incredible energy radiates from here! In the morning you get up early, and at 7.30 you get started with the walk. A guide came with us to show us the beautiful spots, exciting treks and we even took our shoes off, to go through a stream to the other side, where we were suddenly among the horses. Breakfast was ready upon our return and then the first session started. This continued until 13.00, when the food was ready again, a bit of time to freshen up, then the second part of the session until about 16.00, and afterwards free time. And this programme is repeated each day, except that you have a yoga lesson instead of a walk. This yoga lesson was really good! You also have time to go to some nice places in the area if you like, with a taxi, because it's too far to walk. For me these sessions were something new, I really didn't know what to expect and I must say it was a very enlightening and rich experience. Mami is someone who can really explain everything clearly and who is very good at finding your emotional aspects. Mami is really amazing, there's nothing more for me to add than that it did me a lot of good. I look at a lot of things in a different way, I must search for my own path! And as you can see on the photo, going straight through the water if necessary!"

    "We laughed, we cried, it was really special! I definitely think that these wonderful sessions, combined with the beautiful natural surroundings, the sun (30 degrees), the changing programme (walks, yoga) and the friendly people really hit the mark."

    "Thanks again Mami, and I wish you the best of luck with your sessions in Italy!"
