Inner evolution -A deep dive into personal freedom with Evangelos and Nishta in Lake Orta, Italy

March 7 - March 14

March 7- 14, 2021

Presenters: Evangelos Diavolitsis and Nishta Matarese

Registration link:

This innovative workshop has been specially crafted for this extraordinary time in history.

We are offering three integrated ways of boldly meeting the world:

Mindful Embodiment -Honoring your Body

Money Health – Beyond Merely Surviving

The Mystery of Existence – Making sense of Chaos

It’s undeniable that there is a global tsunami of unstoppable transformation happening. We are all being asked to let go of old personal mental models. Collectively, we are being summoned to create a new world that aligns with nature and universal principles of truth, harmony and justice. This conscious paradigm shift needs to happen NOW!

It’s easy to lose site of our goals, dreams and creativity when the world seems to be calling us to step into a tornado of change. It’s understandable if you have some confusion and resistance. Systems are breaking down, people are waking up and there is a part in all of us that wants to fall asleep until the instability torpedoes through our lives.  This workshop is aiming to help you gracefully tune into the endless possibilities bubbling inside you.  There is a dormant energy that is calling you to rise up, make personal changes and share resources.

Change begins with you. Your personal inner revolution will focus on four areas: 

1) Understanding the role of money. 

2) Learning to move through the world with embodied presence.

3) Mastering the monkey mind.

4) Learning to dwell in the Mystery of existence. Embracing the Unknown.

We will use proven ancient meditation techniques, creativity, writing, movement, music, dyads, and Dharma teachings to help you move from where you are now to where you ultimately want to be living…In total Freedom!

Join us for a week of recharging, harmonious living, quietude, wholesome food, clean air and a breathtaking natural environment supporting you to unfold.
