ABOUT MAGIC GAIA
Gaia is F**k It Magic personified.
Just hanging out with Gaia takes you to a different place. Having created the whole F**k It thing (with John) 10 years ago,
Gaia IS F**k It.
And you can’t help but get it when you’re with her.
We use the word ‘magic’ around Gaia too because that’s how people describe her and her work. (And Gaia has A LOT of people following her from one place to another, doing one retreat after another).
- Gaia’s level of magic and guruness: 100%
“GAIA IS A GODDESS: THE MOST INCREDIBLE PERSON I’VE EVER MET.“ O.H., LONDON
ABOUT THIS MAGIC FREEDOM RETREAT
‘To feel free’ is one of our fundamental desires. Most of us what to be free, and to feel free.
But most of us don’t, in one way or another.
The thing is that ‘freedom’ for one can be very different to ‘freedom’ for another.
For some, maybe it’s about doing less, for others it’s about doing more. For some, it’s about moving in life, for others it’s about stillness. For some, it’s about being able to leave things behind, for others it’s about allowing more things into their life. For some, it’s about allowing emotions, for others it’s about stopping emoting all the time.
So, the better question is, what does freedom feel like TO YOU?
What do YOU NEED in this moment to feel free?
Most people don’t really know. They are just aware they are not feeling free.
This week we’ll start with exploring what your needs are.
We’ll play with what it feels like to recognise your needs. And you’ll start to learn how to receive what you need.
You’ll explore what makes you feel free. What connections, what space, what positions, what thoughts, which experiences, which places give you that experience…
“THE MAGIC RETREAT ABSOLUTELY DESERVES ITS NAME. IT WAS A PERFECT WEEK WITH PERFECT PEOPLE AND PERFECT GAIA. IT WAS A LIFE-CHANGING EXPERIENCE.” E.M., BERLIN
…You’ll also learn how to track the patterns of tightening and holding back in your body and nervous system.
You’ll start to notice how and why you stop yourself reaching out, asking for what you need, and receiving it.
And you’ll thus experience how it feels to reach out, to follow your impulses for connection, or for having boundaries and your own space.
You’ll explore being met, feeling nurtured and supported in the way that is right for you.
This week Gaia will feature two powerful life-transforming experiences:
One is a gentle ‘re-birthing’ process, where you’ll choose your supporters and your future direction. You’ll experience coming into life, being welcomed, and accompanied into the future, precisely in the way that you need.
You’ll get so much connection, clearing and opening, you’ll find it impossible to believe anymore that you are alone or powerless.
The other is the famous river-pool experience. Gaia will take you to the most beautiful river pool in the area. Surrounded by woods and next to a waterfall, you’ll experience breathing in cold water, in a process that guides you to a deep sense of power, presence and bliss. You’ll feel like a mountain, like the crashing water, like a wild beating heart, all at the same time. This river experience will also provide us with a ritual of baptism into your freer living.
If we all want to be free, maybe it’s time to make your own move, and finally find your own freedom, your way.
“I WAS DEEPLY MOVED BY GAIA. SHE SEEMED TO KNOW JUST HOW I FELT, WHAT MY JOURNEY IS. I HAVE COME AWAY FROM THIS EXPERIENCE FEELING A LOT MORE IN TOUCH WITH HOW I FEEL AND KNOWING THAT I JUST HAVE TO LET GO WHEN I NEED TO, AND THAT IT’S ALL OKAY.” L.C., AMSTERDAM
ABOUT URBINO RESORT
“Urbino Resort is a beautifully converted cluster of rustic 18th-century farm buildings surrounded by vineyards, woodland and olive groves.” The London Evening Standard
Urbino Resort is a vast estate with it’s ‘borgo’ (small village) at the centre. You will sleep well in the luxurious, but never flashy, rooms. You will enjoy your group sessions in the large and calm session room. You will eat well in the stunning restaurant that’s nestled between three lakes, and has oaks growing up through the building. You will relax well in the indoor pool and spa, or by the outdoor pool (with it’s accompanying bar). You will walk well, in the apparently limitless grounds that run by the powerful river. You will be treated well by the helpful and gentle staff. You will be able to absorb the renaissance culture (and aperatifs / ice cream) in Urbino.
Urbino Resort somehow manages to pull off a few difficult-to-achieve combinations:
– It is luxurious without ever feeling haughty (like many luxurious places do)
– It is vast whilst still feeling intimate
– It is super-pristine, with staff everywhere, whilst still feeling rustic and real
– It is popular, especially in the restaurant, but remains completely peaceful
Many guests come back year-after-year to their luxurious second-home near Urbino.
Travelling to this venue (in brief):
We will give you (very) detailed instructions once you book (in your ‘holiday pack’), but, briefly…
We will invite you to a private Facebook group so that you can talk to other guests who are coming on the same week, and thus meet and share taxis, etc..
Most of our guests fly to Bologna, as it has the most flight options (though Ancona is a little closer). You would then take the train to Pesaro (1 to 2 hours depending on train). And take (and usually, share) a taxi up to Urbino Resort (about 40 mins).
In other words, it’s all pretty straightforward (and rather exciting).
- Sense of peace on the estate 96%
- Bog-standard cuisine 3%
- Lap of luxury quotient 93%
“GAIA IS THE MOST AMAZING HUMAN BEING I HAVE EVER MET. HER GENUINE LOVE AND CARE AND UNDERSTANDING OF OTHERS IS OUTSTANDING. SHE KNOWS JUST WHAT TO SAY AND JUST WHEN TO SAY IT. HER INSIGHTS ALLOWED ME TO HAVE MY OWN UNIQUE JOURNEY WHICH WOULDN’T HAVE BEEN AS SPECIAL WITHOUT HER.” E.S., BRISTOL

in SINGLE SUITE
Oooohhh, if you really want to treat yourself, go for the suite. It’s a single room plus. And ‘plus’ means different things depending on the suite – maybe a lounge as well as your bedroom, maybe a delicious bath. The price is all-inclusive, so: Gaia’s teaching, the suite and breakfast (in the chapel restaurant), lunch and dinner (in the restaurant between three lakes).
in SINGLE ROOM
Most of our guests go for this option. And it’s a good one. The resort has a range of delicious single rooms, depending on which building you’re staying in (there are four). The price is all-inclusive, so: Gaia’s teaching, the room and breakfast (in the chapel restaurant), lunch and dinner (in the restaurant between three lakes).
in DOUBLE SUITE
If you want a double room, and really want to treat yourselves, then go for the suite. It’s a double room plus. And ‘plus’ means different things depending on the suite – maybe a lounge as well as your bedroom, maybe a delicious bath. The price is all-inclusive, and per person, so: Gaia’s teaching, the room and breakfast (in the chapel restaurant), lunch and dinner (in the restaurant between three lakes).
with TWIN / DOUBLE SPACE
Many of our guests come to a retreat on their own, then share with another guest (of the same sex) in a ‘twin’ room. Those booking ‘double’ rooms come to a retreat with another person, and tend to know them rather well. The price is all-inclusive, so: Gaia’s teaching, the room and breakfast (in the chapel restaurant), lunch and dinner (in the restaurant between three lakes).
with TRIPLE SPACE
Many of our guests come to a retreat on their own, then share with others. In this triple room, you share with two others (of the same sex). You’re certain to make a bunch of new friends on a F**k It Retreat, and your ‘roomies’ in such a room tend to be even more special. The price is all-inclusive, so: Gaia’s teaching, the room and breakfast (in the chapel restaurant), lunch and dinner (in the restaurant between three lakes).
