Join Wild Rice Retreat Founder, Heidi Zimmer, in Italy on April 21-27, 2024 for the Art of Wonder Retreat with Hosts Jane Reeves and Amy T. Won. 

It’s been a heavy few years, let wonder soothe your weary soul and rekindle your creativity. Wake up to early morning mist in the rolling hills of Toscana, wander its beautiful countryside in bloom, and let the cool spring evenings soothe your soul.

This retreat is a gentle invitation to replenish, release what no longer serves, and reawaken your creativity in a truly enchanting place. Meditate, make a map of secret places, indulge in a massage or a moonlit walk, and hand-craft a wonder-journal to remember it all.

There is spaciousness to just be, to rest, to enjoy conversation with others. Creativity happens when we slow down, make room for unfettered curiosity, and allow magic from within to bubble up.

Enjoy delicious, nourishing meals and daily gentle yoga for both body and spirit. Allow Tuscany and the full Pink Moon to carve deep roads of splendor in your soul and break open the door to self-love and creative joy, so that you may feel replenished, exuberant, and present to life in the most loving way.

Class description

Embrace moon magic: Re-discover your relationship with the moon through moonlit
rituals, wonder-walks, and journaling. On the evening of April 23, around the midpoint of this retreat, there will be a full moon in Scorpio called the Pink Moon. We will participate in a full moon ritual on that evening under the Tuscan stars.

Unleash your inner child: Amy will teach you how to use the Deck of Wonder-Walking
cards and companion guidebook to explore the beautiful retreat grounds and
surrounding countryside in daylight and moonlight, with wide-eyed, childlike awe. (Perfectly complements the daily meditative walks by Jane).

Walk mindfully: Daily meditative walks with Jane to practice being present and attuned, within, and without. (Enhances your wonder-walking practice with Amy.)

Create a retreat memento: With Amy’s guidance, have fun learning her unique, mood-
painting techniques to create an exquisite, hand-crafted Wonder-Journal to reflect on
your experiences during the retreat. Paint what enchants you - the moon, the night, your epiphanies! This will also make a beautiful and meaningful memento to remember this magical experience.

Fun things: Identify your secret nooks and favorite hideaways during the retreat and let Amy show you how to create a hand-painted map of it to revisit on your own time for journaling, meditation, or painting. 

Slow down with yoga: Learn and practice yoga each morning with guest yoga teacher
Heidi Zimmer, owner of the Award Winning Wild Rice Retreat in Bayfield, Wisconsin.
Heidi teaches us how to slow down and be present in our bodies as we practice and her class style is accessible and adaptable to all levels.

Nourishment for the body and soul: Expect delicious chef meals, daily meditative walks
with Jane, and creative play with Amy, as well as beautiful field trips throughout
Tuscany, its vineyards, and lots of time to explore, create, and experience enchantment on your own.

Amy Won
Amy is an artist, author, and nature-lover. Once upon a time, her burned-out creative heart found her way to a magical retreat far away from home that forever changed the way she experiences the world. Amy learned on retreat that wonder transforms us. It makes us come alive, sparks creativity, and reconnects us to a world more beautiful than we can ever know. What followed the retreat was a labyrinthine creative journey beyond her imagination: a sold-out Deck of Wonder-Walking cards, two illustrated books (An Explorer’s Journal of
Wonder-Walking and A Magical Night Journey), and creativity courses straight from the soul.
