Renaiisance until Rapture: In Artistry of the Soul - Travel to Tuscany - with Jeanne Bresciani, PH.D.
Date: October 3, 2015- October 10, 2015
Location: Italy

Il Chiostro. Inc. & Isadora Duncan International Institute, Inc. present this amazing trip to Florence.  A magnificent journey is planned for a sojourn to the heart of Renaissance Florence, Lucca and Monsummano Terme, to the sensibility of a life and times when the discovery of the world equaled the discovery of oneself.  During ‘vendemia’ – the height of the growing cycle – we shall celebrate a Tuscan harvest of art, ides and natural wonders.  We will travel through sites considered among the most aesthetically beautiful, elegant and ennobling in the world.

Traversing the byways of Florence and the banks of the Arno River, we will find seamless fusing of spirit and matter.  Participants will experience the great treasures and the privately held masterpieces of Tuscany. We will seek messages from the stone and metalwork, oils and canvas, sky and light, flowers and trees, fountains and vines on the true Florentine gold around, among and within us.  And in so doing we shall, as Isadora suggested, “consciously seek, what we have unconsciously lost”

Please join us and nurture your own Artistry of the Soul, which will enjoy a deep reawakening within the Northern Italian world of beauty, art, nature and culture.  This unique journey has been created for enthusiasts of the mythic and imaginal, welcoming participants from diverse fields of experience and interest.

Register by July 1st to receive the gift of a “Botticelli” inspired, pure silk tunic, scarf and sac and something equally “Italic” for the gentlemen!
