The Center was an amazing experience. We met so many beautiful people and learnt so much about ourselves. The work was very reasonable and fairly easy, and you have plenty of free time in the afternoons. It's a great place to get in touch with the Center and meet fellow travellers. The serenity is incomparable and it is so nice to disconnect with the world and reconnect with yourself. If you are a non - Italian speaker it can feel a little isolating at times, as things aren't always translated, so we would recommend learning some basic Italian before arrival. Overall the Center is truly magical!!!

I am deeply grateful for the time I've spent in the Center and the amazing people I've met along the way. This place is encouraging you to dive deep into yourself, reconnect and grow out of your comfort zone. It helped me to get a better understanding of life in community, listening to myself and others and being more patient. Grazie a tutti! <3
