Luxury wellbeing retreats to balance body and mind


Dear Body…

Are you where you want to be in your life right now? Or has your journey veered off track somewhere along the way?
Do you struggle with stress, burnout or a little too much comfort eating? When was the last time you prioritised your needs?

The Dear Body programme is setting a new standard in wellbeing retreats, providing a healing and nourishing experience like no other.
Our 5-day Dear Body programme centres on the art of self-care and self-nourishment, taking you on a transformational journey of profound wellbeing where you’ll become your own best friend. You’ll learn how to listen to your body and respect the voice within, developing a deep understanding of the intricate links between emotional happiness and physical health.

The programme will be carried out in beautiful Lombardy, Italy, with the expert guidance of Consultant Psychiatrist and Psychotherapist
Dr Bea Paszthy MD. MSc. PhD, and daily Emotional and Intellectual Wellness Workshops consisting of cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT), visualisations and self-hypnosis will enable you to take a step back from the stresses of your day-to-day and evaluate your life.
