Silent Steps visiting Communities

visiting Communities and Ecovillages in Central Italy

from June 13th to 26th

An experience of exploration and peace, which will challenge the limits of our bodies (walking, adaptations, new contexts) and minds (silence, presence, walking meditation, and not only).

We will be wayfarers and messengers among the various communities we will visit and we will be in touch with the stories of those who live there.
