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 rules (they are different!) men and women learn about SEXUALITY AND TOUCHING


You’ll learn:


about the many VOICES within you…and how to talk to all of them

about AUTHENTICITY, how you see others and how they see you

what you CAN’T SEE in yourself, and how your mate WILL see it (WHOA!)

how to turn disagreements into relationship GOLD

and SWEET things to really remind you how special it is to be with your mate


Yeah, some of that will be heavy stuff, so you’ll be glad to know that, despite the exercises, experiments and hands-on practices – YES, there will be TOUCHING! – you’ll also indulge in some wonderful sightseeing to medieval hill-top villages and the ruins of a local Roman era river town. And of course you can enjoy walks through our 25 acres (10 hectares) of meadow  and woods.


And Rome is only 70 kilometers (45 MILES) away with direct train connections!
