This is a transformative journey that intertwines inner care and a profound shift in consciousness by fully immersing into a Living Systems' Lab in an Alpine village in revival. 


You will experience a 5-day retreat to support pathways of holistic resilience in times of transition. You will explore a framework for inner growth (IDGs), supported by compassion-based practices (MSC) to sustainably cultivate the soil for change, supported and deepened through contemplative nature connection practices (AITW). Our retreat location is a 'Living Systems Lab' for research, education and entrepreneurship in sustainability transitions and regenerative design, the "Monviso Institute" in Piemonte.

This unique retreat will be co-facilitated by Mirjam Luthe, Lotta Adelstal, and Galia Tyano Ronen.

Discover the logistics of our retreat in Ostana 



Ostana is a small village in the north-western Italian Alps in the Po Valley, facing the Monviso mountain (3841m a.s.l.).

Like many places around the world it has changed tremendously during the past century and is now being revived.


and food

Piemontese food, the birthplace of Italy’s slow food, is delicious!
We will often savour it at local family owned restaurants in the village to support the local economy and bake our pizza in the pizza oven 'a legna' and cook a typical polenta dish at our fireplace.
