Do you feel ready to peel off the layers of closures and confinement, and return to (your state of) nature?
Clean, fresh air, gelato and the pleasures of slow travel await! Join Amit Janco on a pilgrimage through courage, contemplation and creativity in Italy in the fall of 2021 and spring of 2022. This unique, 12-day walking odyssey through nature & creative expression follows the ancient Via Francigena pilgrimage route, exploring the Tuscan countryside from Lucca to Siena.
A pilgrimage through Italy is about tasting some of the finest wines on a sommelier’s drink list, but it’s also about finding your voice in the world and listening closely to the inner muse that guides you to more fully express the essence of your being. Discover the beauty of your own story and the gifts of your creative spirit, amidst the gorgeous Tuscan landscape. It’s a journey of contemplation & courage. Shake up your sense of adventure & playfulness… and free up your creativity!
