18:30 – 19:30 – WORKSHOP – I bend I don’t breakBackbending. Have you ever watched bamboos bend under the pressure of the wind and observed how they return to their unique stature once the wind dies down? When I reflect on bamboo’s ability to rebound or return to its original position, the word “resilience” comes to mind. When used in reference to a person, the same word would mean the ability to recover from any situation that tests a person’s emotional limits. Life is a mix of ups and downs. If we learn to flex but not break in difficult times, we allow ourselves to remain in control in any situation. Like bamboo showing resilience, bending but not breaking!

20:00 – Dinner – Savory pies and typical dishes prepared on the spot based on seasonal fruit and vegetables produced by OliVenere.

21:30 – 23:00 – Ecstatic Dance with Erik and Lela – We invite you to dress in black or dark colors, ecstatic dance is an experience that goes beyond the boundaries of traditional dance, creating a space where you can unleash your creativity, express emotions and connect with the intrinsic joy of movement. UV lights and fluorescent colors will free the body in a primordial dance without limits! Erik, the person who led the best Ectatic Dance of my life with the most visionary painter in the world come together to make you experience something VERY SPECIAL!
