This was so amazing last year that we just had to do it again and it’s going to be even better. 🙂

After years of amazingly transformative retreats in the United States, I am excited to invite you the 2nd Annual Big Glow Retreat in Europe in the beautiful rolling hills of Italy. We are expecting participants from several continents for this beautiful and intimate retreat.
The Santa Maria farmhouse lies in the heart of Umbria near San Venanzo and the historic towns of Orvieto, Todi, Assisi and Perugia in the beautiful protected area of Monte Peglia Park.

The farm is owned by a French chef, Daniel Boutet, his Italian wife, Architect Rosaria Iacovino. Here the family (two sons Emanuel and Francesco) live in an uncontaminated hillside paradise among oak trees and streams on property which has been in the family for several generations.

It is perfect for guests wishing to tour the hilltowns, monasteries and architecture of Umbria and stay in a rural friendly family atmosphere.

The farmhouse is in a seventeenth century renovated fieldstone which has architecturally designed additions including a common ‘great room’ with fireplace, library, meditation room, covered meeting and dining terraces with barbeque wood-burning oven for pizzas and roasts, and an outdoor salt water swimming pool overlooking Umbria. The farmhouse is artistically furnished with items from the original family villa.

The farm setting comprises 50 hectares of organically farmed land primarily growing grains and olives. It is surrounded by oak and juniper forests. Wild produce includes strawberries, mushrooms, truffles and chicory.
The Faena stream runs through the landscape as well as through the adjacent medieval stone villages.
Guests can hike, or (with advance notice) rent mountainbikes, or travel on horseback.

All meals will be organic, vegetarian and much of the produce will be straight from the surrounding farm!
All suites are equipped with coffee makers, refrigerator, freezer, cooking range and oven.

We are:
160 kilometers (2 hour direct train) from Rome
160 kilometers from Florence
30 kilometers from Perugia
39 kilometers from Orvieto
50 kilometers from Assisi

“The Big Glow retreat experience is a living symphony composed of various heart opening movements or phases. Each movement is grounded in the expressed intention of the group, and galvanized through presence, into the effortless unfolding of each magical now. Every individual works as one aspect of the whole and simultaneously co-creates, witnesses, and participates in the full expression of each movement as it arises. As the group collectively travels through, and reflects upon each movement, it gains a deeper awareness of itself, and transforms into something completely new.”
– Lea Incandescent Big Glow Faculty Member Indianapolis IN

“I have attended multiple retreats with Brian, and in each, I experienced co-creating an intentional, spiritual community with other participants, deep connections with others, and new insights into my own being. The retreat environment calls forth and nurtures my highest self, helps me release negatives and ideas of self-limitation, embrace my potential, and find new wellsprings of joy inside myself”
– S.K., Sacramento CA

“I attended an event which explores through sharing and meditation The Power of Now led by Brian. I left with a profound sense of peace and ‘grounding’ … of being totally anchored in the ‘forever NOW moment’ of all that is. It is almost a ‘physical’ sense of being ‘weighted’ or ‘anchored”. ”

This location is one of the most idyllic and serene spots I have ever been. So beautiful and quiet and magically alive and I’m very excited to share this place with you.
I know from years of experience, there is something so valuable about getting away and joining others in coming into alignment with your own authenticity.

The Big Glow retreats with Brian Piergrossi, and other featured guests from the Big Glow Faculty, are a unique, wonderful weekend of insight, connection and enlightenment as an experiential answer to life’s deeper questions.

The intention of these unique retreats is to come together with others on a path of living more consciously, with greater self-awareness, and open-heartedness, in every aspect of our lives for greater well-being in oneself and the world at large.

A supportive, inspiring, intimate space of natural beauty is provided to come together as a community with others to transform ourselves, our future and our world, in a positive way.

These retreats are a weekend long, unique, evolving exploration, experiential exercise, and inquiry into what it means to live fully, present and alive to each moment, ever more deeply moving into the vast power of this Now, free from the burdens and anxieties of past and future.
Brian Piergrossi will be facilitating a group circle for the entire group every evening during the retreat. There will be smaller group circles each day as well.

The Big Glow Retreat is a co-creative experience. It is a group experiment in awakening to the conscious potential of each moment… An opportunity to relax and open up to a deeper level of authenticity, clarity, purpose and connection.

All communal meals are vegetarian cuisine, with vegan and live/raw food options.

Participants share music, dance, yoga, hiking, bodywork, and stimulating, heartfelt, intimate conversation with new friends and old.

There is plenty of solitary space for silent contemplation and meditation, as well as a weekend filled with many unexpected miracles and inspirational moments.

This relaxed, rejuvenating, intimate retreat will have space available for 10 to 20 participants so space is very limited. Reserve immediately and take advantage of early bird special to assure your spot.

This is a drug and alcohol free event. Please make preparations to stay for the entire retreat.

Come ready and open to share your unique gifts and wisdom and receive the gifts of others on the path. Come with the intention to create one of the most incredible weekends of your life!
