GREAT THINGS

are done by a series of small things brought together

Vincent Van Gogh

Giardino di San Giuliano

Is a 40 minute drive from Catania airport. It’s nestled in a 60 hectare orange grove facing our dearest Mountain Volcano Etna.

The house is in the middle of this luscious exotic garden. Through time, the garden has acquired much botanical interest and is now part of a prestigious garden association.

Look up Grandi Giardini Italiani if you desire to know more.

YOUR RETREAT COMPANIONS

you’ll be looked after with beauty and goodness

FIONA CORSINI SAN GIULIANO

The search for beauty is core to my work.

Watercolor is the medium which resonates the most within me. In its pragmatic simplicity resides infinite complexities.

Water paper and pigment accompanied by a helpful brush is all you need to create moments of visual memories. Working in the fashion business as a print designer has enhanced my knowledge in colors, shapes, and composition, essential tools and faithful companions throughout my life.

Unlike most people, I have graduated from art school as a late bloomer, after my working career and forging a large brood of children. The 5 years spent at the Florence Academy of Art have equipped me with method and patience.

These days nature is my favorite muse, landscapes and botanicals capture the most intimate part of my heart.

JEN WARAKOMSKI

When I began studying Yoga and Meditation in New York City in 2001 my life transformed. Through practice, I learned that I could heal parts of myself that felt stressed, tired, and unbalanced.

Over the years I have been very fortunate to study with Eastern and Western teachers in the USA, Europe and India.

My personal studies with HH the Dalai Lama, Erich Shiffmann, Yogi Sivadas, Leslie Kaminoff, Jillian Pransky, Carrie Parker Gasteau, Dharma Mittra, amongst others have illuminated my path.

I live in Florence, Italy and hold certifications as a E-500 RYT Yoga Teacher, Meditation Teacher, Hormone Yoga Therapist, and Reiki Master.

The core of my Dharma, or purpose, is to show individuals the pathways to embody their wellbeing, enhance their personal growth, and amplify their connection to their Highest Self so that they can make an intentional and influential impact on the planet.
