Get a Glimpse Of A Retreat
Love Out Louders
give yourself full permission
When you wake up every day, are you jumping out of bed screaming; “FUCK YEAH! Another day!” Are you so filled with gratitude and excitement that there seems to be that sheen on everything you look at, or that notion of everything you’re touching turning to gold? Maybe you haven’t been told yet, so brace yourself. YOU ARE MAGIC. YOU ARE MADE OF LOVE. Pure, unconditional, unbreakable, infinity expansive… love.
Yet, there’s most likely (a common side effect of living in the world as we know it) some debris… standing in your way. Some limitations, some skewed or misguided ideologies, some negative belief systems, a little rust where your discipline and inspiration should be. In the wear and tear of everyday life, like most people, maybe you’ve lost your shine. It’s okay though – because I’m here to let you know, it never truly goes away. It just gets covered up and a little bit hidden. Because to be loud, and bold, and fiercely YOU is an act that is so rarely received with the applauds that it deserves.
See, when you’re shining your brightest light, you (without meaning to) shine a torch on other’s darkness – and without awareness, it can leave you open to attack; to be belittled, or bullied, discouraged or disempowered. And we’re going to go on that journey together. I’ve spent over a decade either recovering from the idea of my own inadequacies, or supporting hundreds of thousands of others in transcending theirs. Here’s the hard truth; insecurity is inevitable. It’s a survival mechanism ; a part of the human design. Designed to keep us safe, designed to hold us in our comfort zone. Here’s the good news; it can be transcended. You can see it for what it is, and use it as leverage and fuel to make you stronger and increasingly more anti-fragile.
This retreat is going to be a deep dive into yourself; an unveiling. Permission to finally come ‘undone’, so you can get to the core of who it is you really are. The reason you’re on this planet. The higher purpose that will provide you access to the life of your dreams. This sort of personal development isn’t going to tell you who to be, what to do or what the seven steps to happiness are; it’s going to hold up a mirror for you to truly look at yourself, and learn to love who it is you see. It’s a lasting and sustainable transformation.. Love is not finding the perfection, it’s the unconditional permission to explore the imperfection. So let’s get exploring!

VILLA PONTI, CIVENNA, LAKE COMO
The villa is situated on the hillside along a private road just off ‘Via Pra Grasso, 13 minutes’ drive from Bellagio. The famous resort lakeside town is renowned for its boutique gift shops, restaurants, cafes, bars, fashionable lido and Villa Mezi gardens. The town is easily accessible by road from Lecco and by car-passenger ferry. We’ve created a WhatsApp group for you to link up for carpooling.
Villa Ponti is a mid-Century house designed in collaboration with one of Italy’s most famous architects, Gio Ponti. It has been carefully renovated to retain as many original features of the period as possible.
Five of the eight bedrooms offer lake views (one with double exposure and two with lakeside balconies), and three offer luscious cedar views of the Bellagio forest.
We will be serving deliciously authentic Italian throughout the course of the retreat. If you have any dietary requirements, please let us know ASAP.
Consider Villa Ponti your luxurious new home complete with all your favourite comforts, accompanied by stunning views, pool & sauna.
