Spring Retreat in Our Paradise GREAT NEWS!   Paradiso Integrale's annual springtime retreat is OPEN TO MEN and WOMEN, single or in couple!     Naturally, this means that the focus this spring will be on your adult RELATIONSHIPS of the alternately confusing and enrapturing sort that only close intimacy can engender.   You will enter a beautiful and curative landscape among olive groves overlooking the Tiber valley in Umbria, an hour north of Rome.   There you will be catered by a prize-winning Italian cook who is our next-door neighbor.   And there is a NEW PROGRAM also.  Not that the tried and true has been discarded, but you'll find it tailored to the needs of intimate partners in the 21st century.   So you'll be treated to:   what neuroscience has to say about men and women what that means for your desired relationship how our relationships change both in history and in our own stages of growth what [...]

Stop the RealtionshiT – Grow Your Relations

More than 50 % of the Western population as divorced or never married. The good old relationship which lasted “until death do us part” hardly exists any more in the Western world - and if a couple succeeds to live the whole life together than they have or done a lot of work to grow together or they leed a relationship which doesn’t really merit this name.   I believe that everyone who has reached a certain age, let’s say 40, has lived one or more periods of “relationshiT”, periods of anger, disappointment, insatisfaction or worse. Some people sort of accept that life is like this and go on as a victim with no hope for a better future by tolerating what is done to them - or what they themselves do to others. Some people chose to separate or divorce and to find a different mate with whom the same game most probably goes on again. [...]

Fun and Relaxation in August – Come and join us! (by Heidi Hornlein)

Wow! Already August - and still busy and stressed? Shouldn’t this be the month for holidays, for relaxation and finally for getting in some fun? Where are all the GOOD things we always have postponed until “later” - when we believe we finally will have some time to take care of ourselves and to enjoy life.   Well, the truth is, this LATER is NOW or NEVER!   Yes, I know that YOU know. Theoretically we know already all the things which would be good for us: movement, calmness, joy, relaxation, being focused when needed and totally immersed in LIFE all the time….   How is your reality? Mine certainly looks like constant waves, times in which I easily feel like “having it all” and other times when I am so involved in my projects that I hardly notice that the whole day has already gone, with neither having done any body movement nor having dedicated some [...]

EMOTIONAL EATING – what about The Power of Relationship with Ourselves? This is a lively discussion with Tracy Baker, Margherita Crystal Lotus and Heidi Hörnlein about a hot topic which concerns so many women of today. Not only that we are feeling bad about the extra piece of chocolate - which is considered weakness anyway - we also get the constant reminder that we are NOT the way we SHOULD be, slim and "beautiful" according to a scheme which bans roundness as not appropriate for women. This can only happen in a society where we have an extreme abundance of food (which is not always healthy, btw) so that the way to distinguish yourself from others you need to renounce on food. Paradoxical times. And it is called "Emotional Eating" - sounds like a disorder, doesn't it? I invite you to listen to our conversation and to tell us how you think about it by writing your comments here or on youtube!
