Aurora makes the world better.  Join us!

Nature and Spirit, Body and Soul, Mind and Heart, Male and Female, I and Others: beyond the dualism of our thought system, there is no separation. Discovery of fundamental unity within us and with the world brings peace, harmony, the joy to savour the gift of life and the desire to engage to build a better world. Change is possible, by re-connecting to ancient wisdom traditions from all over the world and treading on a path of awareness to find the center of our being. Our no-profit organization for the development of holistic disciplines would like to help you find your way on this path.  

We propose Yoga and meditation holidays, cultural events and residential workshops at Podere Isabella, a magical place in the heart of the val d’Orcia. We invite you to discover a wonderful and generous land around Pienza, 60 km south of Siena. Podere Isabella is available for weekly rentals all year round, and the Annex can be rented for a minimum of two days, for a week-end, a group event or individually to enjoy the beauty of the place. We also have several proposals for tailor made workshops, that must be booked well in advance, with quality teachers, in Italian and English. We look forward to welcoming you!
