About 30 people from our global community have already landed here in Tuscany, and more are coming every year to participate, either at Asha or many of the other community initiatives around town. At the Retreat & Community Centre, we welcome students, volunteers, teachers, collaborators, and guests to foster a thriving community hub dedicated to education, conscious co-creation, and healing.
Bordered by a stream, the Centre rests on a vein of spring water and has two natural artesian wells. there is an expansive olive grove, which we have now reclaimed, a fruit orchard and wild grapevines speckled around the land. Untouched forest surroundings and stunning views of the Tuscan hills inspire contemplation and mindful presence, while the clean mountain air invites deep and cleansing breaths.
The ASHA Retreat & Community Centre features six traditional stone-built houses, offering a combination of individual guest rooms and cottages spread around the property. Although each house is unique, the entire property highlights traditional Tuscan architecture, connected to one another by stone pathways. Orchards are interwoven with wild grasses and gardens, with both indoor and outdoor communal areas ideal for connecting with yourself and others. Whether in shared housing or a private cottage, most guest accommodation includes private bathing facilities, heating, and a daily orchestra of birdsongs.
