Welcome to my home San Flaviano, The Land of Light Where the Doves Meet.

I am delighted to be hosting our 9th year of retreats at San Flaviano Monastery. During the Summer of 2023 I will be expanding my trauma therapy offerings to include 7 day Healing Retreats along with our famous Yoga Retreats.

In the heart of Umbria, San Flaviano sits nestled in the foothills of the Appennine Mountains. A deeply sacred spot for over a millennium. My home is the former church and monastery visited by many as a place to be held and meditate on their pilgrimage to Assisi over the centuries.

Guest Yoga Teacher

Amber Voss – Sanctuary Yoga Retreats

I am delighted to welcome Amber back to San Flaviano for the third seasson. She is my guest running her own Sanctuary Yoga Retreat.

Amber Voss is an E-RYT 200 and RYT 500-hour yoga instructor trained in the Pranakriya and Kripalu yoga lineages, with training and teaching hours totaling over 1,000 plus hours each. She is also a certified 200-hour Instinctive Meditation instructor.

She brings an authentic, non-judgmental and accessible teaching style to her students. She recognizes that yoga and meditation isn’t a one-size-fits-all practice. Amber continually encourages her students to trust that they are their own best teachers and explore what works for them. While she teaches all styles of classes, her specialty resides in offering gentle, yin, and restorative practices that nourish and restore the body/mind/spirit connection.

What Shall We Eat?

We are abundantly blessed to be surrounded by the soil and by the lands of Umbria. You will often find one of us in the garden or the market choosing with love and care that which will nourish not only your body but your very essence.

When you visit it will be the time of year when the land is giving us all of our bounties, fragrant fresh vegetables, fruits, legumes, etc. We will harvest and bring to the table that which will fill you,
We have worked with our vegan nutritionalist to create recipes which aid healthy digestion and preparations of food that are easy to understand and take away with you. It is a peace filled way of dining, and in community.
Herbal teas, fresh waters will be available throughout the day. You will find little refreshing treats about as you pass throughout the day. A nibble here, a nibble there, but our meals will enjoyed in community. They will be vegetarian and there will of course be coffee…….. After all it is Italy!

Our reviews

“… there was a beautiful candlelight ceremony that we all participated in, followed by a wonderful meal prepared by one of the guests and shared by all. It was truly special to be a part of this.

I would highly recommend San Flaviano to anyone privileged enough to get an invitation. The location is secluded and beautiful, but day trips into the surrounding towns are easy and fun. The rooms are clean and simple, and the bedding luxurious. Fresh food prepared with love and eaten outdoors is good for your body & soul. And being in the company of Tess & Kevin in their home is priceless.”

“… a place of LOVE. The love is seen and felt through the beauty of the surroundings, the peacefulness and the owners welcoming gesture. The retreat is beautifully renovated with attention to detail yet the original features are well preserved. If you are looking for a place to unwind and reconnect with your soul, this is the place!”
