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 DISSOLVING RETREAT
Most of us are holding onto something: whether it’s a pain that we can’t move through, or fear generated by something when we were younger, or an attachment to something (or someone) we can’t let go of, or resentment / anger for something that’s happened.
Some of us hope that it will heal of itself over time; for others, It seems that nothing we do or try can shift this feeling.
Well, this week is about dissolving that ‘holding’: in your body, in your mind, in your will… and experiencing the deep letting go and transformation that comes with that.
This is Gaia’s magical F**k It work in hot water.
The gorgeous resort where this week is held has a beautiful indoor hot water pool, where this work will be done. There will, of course, also be sessions in the main group room overlooking the hills, but this week get ready to dissolve in the warm water. Yum.
When we work in water, we can easily touch and dissolve holding that is usually harder to get to. This is also the perfect environment to rediscover trust and a sense of being held and loved (because you’ll be held and loved 🙂 )…
“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
…this all brings deep healing with… relational issues, a sense of loneliness or distrust, a lack of meaning or belonging, and any need to reconnect and complete issues with our parents and siblings or other issues from our early life.
Not many words are needed in the water. So much happens through sensing, safety, opening and being held.
Our systems normally tend to do too much in so many ways: the body does too much – still holding on to old contractions and tensions, not knowing how to let go. The mind does too much – desperately trying to resolve everything, and ending up offering us old thought patterns and various forms of control. Our emotions often do too much – getting us worried and scared about things and situations that may not even be there.
Trying hard to let go just doesn’t work (we guess you’ve tried that before). But fully discovering a restful place within us, feeling welcomed and safe, following the smoother flow that still lies in us (forgotten), and letting the dissolving happen on its own, DOES work.
And this changes your way of living forever.
Yes, it’s time to dissolve.
“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).
