3.                  You will be immersed into the Culture and Mysticism of Assisi by learning stories told by your hostesses in the context of the Pursuit of a Meaningful Life which is still Pertinent in the Modern World, specially when comes to the Challenges faced by Women. 

You will also Visit Cortona in Tuscany, a medieval Etruscan city, where 'Under the Tuscan Sun' was written and filmed ... You will experience a fun day of food, wine (or juices if you prefer), camaraderie, some shopping, and a light agenda for us to talk about about Women, Love and Choices as explored by the writer Frances Mayes. 

     

4.    You will be so rested as you haven't been for long time .. You will feel the warm breeze from the wide open Umbrian Valley, smell the scents, taste great food, experience a different culture outside the big cities (even from the Italian perspective this is awesome), and have an unique sensation of stepping in a place where so many people have lived, loved, prayed for centuries ... 

But mostly, you will SLOW DOWN, for few days, to feel alive and present without the noise we are all surrounded by on a daily basis.

This is a gift for your SOUL .. and this is PRICELESS.

ABOUT SIGLIA DINIZ

I love learning, traveling, being around like-minded people, having retreats to go deeper within and obviously, I adore Italy ... especially Assisi and it was love at first sight, since I went there for the first time 14 years ago during a major transition in my life. After several vacations in Assisi, I even lived there for 3 months. 

I'm a health care professional: a  MD (and former scientist), I have a Masters in Public Health from Harvard University, and a MBA from the University of California, Irvine, in addition to being a Certified High Performance coach directly trained by Brendon Burchard.

And for over 20 years,  I've studied and engaged in activities in the areas of Personal Development, Neuroscience ('Law of Attraction'), Holistic Therapies, Meditation, Spirituality, Heart Intelligence, Healthy Lifestyle and High Performance Habits. 

I live in California, and consider myself as being a multicultural person given the fact I'm a Brazilian/American woman with some Italian heritage. I'm a mother of an adult daughter who is the love of my life. More information about me: https://www.sigliadiniz.com/p/about

THE VENUE - GIOTTO HOTEL & SPA ASSISI

 

Our retreat is mainly about the EXPERIENCE of talking, walking, meditating, yoga, feeling the Italian fields and streets, their stories, their people and, free time to reflect on our own purpose ...
And to support you in this journey, it was important to provide a beautiful and comfortable, unhurried place for your stay ... and  with this intent in mind, I chose the Giotto Hotel. 
This traditional hotel in Italy, since 1899, is located in the historic center of Assisi, with a wonderful view of the Umbrian Valley. It is not super fancy but it is a 4 star hotel, with a spa club, award-winning restaurants and a cellar, business center.
 
 
 

THE UMBRIAN AND TUSCAN CUISINE

THE UMBRIA AND TUSCAN CUISINE

 

During those 5 days it will be difficult to resist the delicious food served in Assisi and Cortona. The quality of the cuisine alone is already an EXPERIENCE per se.
The breakfasts and dinners at the hotel can be served either at the balcony or in their elegant restaurant decorated with stone arches from the 14th century. 
We will have our lunches in typical Umbrian restaurants in Assisi and on Saturday, we will experience the Tuscan cuisine in Cortona.
Italians are famous for knowing how to enjoy their meals and how to honor their gatherings around food; So, we will enjoy our meals the same way locals do ... unhurried, with time to appreciate the present moment.
 

WHAT TO DO IN ITALY BEYOND YOUR 5 DAYS IN ASSISI AND CORTONA

HELLO DEAR FRIEND, IF YOU WONDER HOW TO HAVE A BEAUTIFUL VACATION IN ITALY BEYOND YOUR RETREAT ... SOME SUGGESTIONS BELOW ...

           FIRST SUGGESTION

a) You could come earlier to Italy and stay in ROME for few days before the retreat ... Not only you would be sightseeing one of the most beautiful cities in the world but also you would be rested for the retreat ... No jet lag ..

Then, on June 6th, you just show up at the FCO (Rome International Airport) to pick up the Retreat's transfer to Assisi.

b) AFTER THE RETREAT, I suggest that you take a train or a bus to PERUGIA (20 miles from Assisi), the capital of Umbria. This is another medieval city with a balanced amount of modernity as seen in its university programs, culinary and art galleries. The city is gorgeous.

And if you are in the mood, Perugia is the place where the 'Italian kiss' (Baccio Perugina) chocolates are made ... you don't want to miss it.

Then, from Perugia you can take the train (or a car) and EXPLORE THE SMALL CITIES AND VILLAGES around in Umbria and/or go to Tuscany ... you can do this in a day or more days, depending on your availability and interests. 

One more tip ... in Umbria, there is the largest lake in Italy: LAKE TRASIMENO where you can take a boat to visit small islands around. It is where nature meets ancient history. Very easy to visit for a day.

              Second Suggestion

a) You arrive in Italy on June 6th and take the Retreat's transfer to Assisi as planned.

b) AFTER THE RETREAT, you can take the train in Assisi (only 2 hours) to FLORENCE in Tuscany ... the birth of art in the world, David from Michelangelo, Dante Alighieri's house among so many other attractions. 

And once in Tuscany, you can either get a tour or rent a car and visit many other places in the heart of Italy, such as: PISA, SIENA, LUCA, AREZZO  and so many other wonderful small cities and villages in TUSCANY, full of beauty, history, great food and lovely people.

PS - If you don't want to drive, I know a company located in Assisi that could take you to several places around ... it is just a referral, not part of the retreat, but it is an option, and I highly recommend them.

Third Suggestion

If you are interested in the religious (spiritual) sites around Umbria and Tuscany, and beyond, there are several beautiful cities and valleys where St Francis and his companions also lived and worked in addition to other spiritual places.

AFTER THE RETREAT:

Before leaving Assisi, you can visit Santa Maria Degli Angeli, a city very close to Assisi, where St Francis died and also where St Clara was hosted when left her parent's home. Beautiful.

Then, you can take a car or train and go to places such as: POGGIO BUSTONE (Province of Rieti), LA FLORESTA and The Sacred Valley, GUBBIO, GRECCIO (where the first nativity scene for Christmas was created by St Francis), LA VERNA among other places.

There are also cities worthy visiting: Siena (St Catherine), Province of Foggia to visit Padre Pio's work and sites (It is around 200 miles from Assisi but you can add a visit to the nearby cities in the Adriatic coast); 

And you can finish your trip, by including the Vatican when visiting Rome before heading back home.

There are so many sites in Italy where Christianity was embraced by the first mystic Christians, who lived authentic lives. They are great places to visit and enjoy the energy you may feel just for being there, in addition to their history, great people and the usual awesome regional food and wine you can find wherever you go in Italy.  

In summary, regardless of your religion or beliefs, you will have a beautiful and uplifting experience by visiting these places. 

Forth Suggestion

a) You arrive in Italy on June 6th and take the Retreat's transfer to Assisi as planned.

b) AFTER THE RETREAT, you can take a train (4-5 hours) to MILAN ... and you will be in one of the most beautiful cities in the world ... one of the main points of fashion. There you can visit also LAKE COMO (maybe George Clooney and Amal, who are local residents, are at home) and who knows ... you can even take a car, a short one hour drive to the SWISS BORDER and spend a day in the beautiful city of LUGANO.

b) In Milan, you can take a one day tour for CINQUE TERRE, one of the most beautiful places in Italy .. 5 villages considered the Italian Riviera ... I even think you won't be able to resist and will spend a night or two in Cinque Terre before going back to Milan.

Going to Milan, you can also explore further the north of Italy and go to places such as VENICE and so on.

c) If not Milan ... You can go south from Assisi and take a transportation and go to POSITANO .. one of the most famous summer spots in Italy.

And if you have extra time, as you are already in the south of the country, you can go from Positano to SICILY (around 400 miles) which is a whole different kind of trip ... unforgettable for sure. You choose.

ASSIS - Province of Perugia, Umbria

Assisi is located in the Umbria region, less than an hour from Tuscany and two hours from Rome by car. Its beauty, charm and history captivate our heart while instigate our curiosity and imagination. Impossible not to be enchanted by this magical region.

CORTONA - Province of Arezzo, Tuscany

Cortona is one of the oldest medieval cities in Italy, it is said to have over two thousand year-old. It was one of the centers of the Italian Unification almost two centuries ago. It has so much charm and and character all around.

TESTIMONIALS FROM RECENT CLIENTS WHO COMPLETED THE 12-WEEK HIGH PERFORMANCE COACHING PROGRAM WITH SIGLIA 

"In my opinion, Siglia Diniz is a high achiever person in her personal and professional life and that is why I chose her to be my High Performance Coach. My testimonial is not just about our new relationship as coach x client but as an observer of her consistent growth in life. I've known Siglia for more than 20 years back from our home country, Brazil. When I met Siglia, she was working as a cardiologist in the hospitals in Brasilia, DF. Fast forwarding a few years later, we were both living in the United States and I was very lucky to keep in touch with her closely ... she wasn't just determined to go back to school in the US but she chose to to go back to school in Harvard! There she obtained her first masters degree in the US. It was in public health. panies as well in non-profit organizations... It is not just these accomplishments in her career that gets my profound respect and deep admiration for her but also her eagerness to always continue studying and learning other disciplines: like getting a second Masters degree in Business and like going to Film school and starting to write/direct short movies projects on her own ... and also I just didn't know that she was getting the training to be a coach herself. That's when I raised my hand wanting to be one of the first clients. Because for me she is a model, a woman to be inspired by and a mentor. I totally trust Siglia Diniz as a coach and I know she will make a difference in my life. Thanks Siglia!"

Lilia Newman
M.S., CCC-SLP Speech-Language Pathologist Bilingual certified (Spanish-Portuguese) Director of Communicate Better. Brooklyn, NY

"I started my coaching process with Silgia when I needed clarity about my career path. Siglia is super smart, asked me great questions, gave me great ideas and did not pressure me to do things that had nothing to do with who I am, she did the opposite: she helped me to create things that were in accordance with my soul. After our sessions, I was much more productive and my mind was not confused anymore because of how strong her clarity sessions were with me. I absolutely loved OUR results. Something else I must say: she has the knowledge, she knows what she is doing but the way she does is unique because there is a heart in her work, she is present, she was there thinking about my process and my needs in every session we had."

Carol Herr
Life Coach and Online Influencer; IG:@ cajuinaefrevo; (Português/Inglês)

"Siglia has been fundamental on my journey. Through her sharp perception and high sensibility, she was able to identify exactly what I needed to improve myself and to fly higher. I had many wonderful insights with her help which allowed me to make progress with my projects and personal development. I thank her for coming my way and for helping me so much!"

Viviane Caufield
Life Coach - vivicaufield.com (Português/Inglês)

"I truly believe all of us are facing changes in life. Some are more obvious than others. Siglia has been on a journey that she made important changes. Even though I just knew her recently, starting the coaching process with her, I felt she has the authority to support us in made changes to a High Performance life, due to the process she have been through. I discuss my targets and process in depth and she guided me with a lot of useful tools and reflections. She is a professional who makes a difference in our lives"
