Italian Yoga and Hiking Retreat
September 18, 2019 - September 25, 2019
I have been to Assisi three times and can tell you it is a Very Special Environment on many levels, and awesome that we arrive on Monday afternoon as most weekend tourists will be gone. This rocky hilltop town is throbbing with humanity in the summer time and on weekends' generally. So we can call it a Sacred Pilgrimage too.
Paolo has organized hikes on the St. Francis trails about 9 or 10 times. St. Francis lived in Assisi, but did lot's of hikes with his monks to surrounding villages and towns. He was in Love with God in Nature, and in the Animals and All People. Walk his footsteps with this Itinerant Retreat.
