WHY WOULD THIS RETREAT BENEFIT YOU? WHAT IS THERE FOR YOU?

Because at the end of this retreat, you will GET:

 

1.             Practical tools and skills based on Principles of Intentional Meditation and Neuroscience, High Performance Habits and Conscious Lifestyle, Yoga Philosophy and Practice to greatly improve the quality of your Personal and Professional Life.

 

2.           You will get a rich human experience, by bridging the wisdom of the past with the challenges we all face nowadays, especially during life transitions!!

You will be immersed into the Culture and Mysticism of Assisi and Cortona 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. 

 

3.    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.       A group Coaching Session a month after the retreat with Siglia and Lydie so that you have a Roadmap to help you Identify your PURPOSE and How to Implement your Upcoming Plans with CONFIDENCE

Also for 3 months after the retreat (up to December/2019), our private facebook page will be kept open  to support you in your new plannings and questions/discussions generated from the experience in Italy and from your own reflections.

 

     

5.    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.

THE VENUE - GIOTTO HOTEL & SPA ASSISI

 

Our retreat is mainly about the EXPERIENCE of living in the country side of the Italian culture while absorbing its wisdom and practicing meditation and yoga, learning how to develop high performance habits and apply law of attraction/neuroscience principles to future strategic planning. 
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, we chose the Giotto Hotel, one out of the only two 4 star hotels in Assisi.  
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 boutique hotel, with a spa club, award-winning restaurants and a cellar, and a business center.
 
 
 

THE UMBRIAN AND TUSCAN CUISINE

THE UMBRIA AND TUSCAN CUISINE

 

During those 7 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 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 also experience the Tuscan cuisine in our lunch 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.

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"
