Retreat With Me in Tuscany

OCTOBER 8 - 14, 2023

You've done enough.

Enough self-improvement.

Enough anticipating others’ needs – often at the expense of your connection with yourself. 

Enough pushing, striving, and fixing.

You’ve been working hard to earn the joy and rest that you ache for, but no matter how long your to-do list is, you never seem to get to taking better care of yourself. 

It’s not that you don’t know how to care for yourself. You are SPECTACULARLY GOOD at taking care of things… it’s just that you’ve gotten stuck in responsibility overdrive and haven’t had the bandwidth to deal with the onslaught of everything you encounter when you slow down. 

(Kind of easier to just keep doing all the things, right? I feel you.)

It might even feel like if you keep working hard someone will eventually take notice, appreciate your incredible attentiveness and labor, and tell you it’s time to take a break to care for yourself, without you having to ask or make anyone else feel uncomfortable. 

So here it is: You’ve done enough. You are enough.

I want to take you on vacation where the only thing on the agenda is YOU resting, playing, eating unimaginably delicious food & doing whatever the f*ck you want.

(While, also, teaching you the skills of honoring your needs and prioritizing your desires so that you never end up last on your list again.)


Praise for Tend

I think Mara is the loveliest, wisest, most fun, tenderhearted and powerful being I know. Truly. And a gifted leader/teacher/practitioner. If you have the opportunity to spend time with Mara on retreat, do not hesitate. This is lovely, life changing, heart-opening stuff. Just go.

What do YOU want + need right now?

If you’re like most of us, this question can be a little hard to answer.

After all, answering it has the tendency to up-end the hard-won equilibrium we’ve found in our lives. Between work and relationships and children and societal expectations and the looming pandemic uncertainty… it’s more than understandable if it’s been a while since you’ve checked in with yourself. 

Here’s the best news: You are still there, underneath the many roles and responsibilities you carry each day, just waiting for an opportunity to unfurl and take your rightful place dead smack in the center of your life. 

The Wild Adoration: Tuscany retreat is your invitation to press pause on your life as you know it for one week and PLAY – with watercolors, in the sunshine, outside, with your food, in good company, and under the stars. 

Feed your body with delicious meals (and desserts!) prepared just for you. 

Take up space in your life and nourish yourself in a way that is so delicious, hands-on, and healing that you will be gobsmacked to realize that your needs are not a burden, but a compass guiding you.

Experience has taught me that celebration and joy can be more complicated teachers than struggle. “Simply” enjoying yourself can so often feel more difficult than chugging along, turning over stones and tackling problems.

But you? You are ready for the challenge of feeling blissful and well-resourced.

Praise for Tend

Being around Mara's energy caused a shift in me. I felt the most myself that I have in literally years. I felt connected to my power and my truth in a way that I haven't felt before. I am continually trying to draw back to how I felt during the weekend; I want to be able to continue to access that place, to live more in that space every day. - J.

Fattoria Bedrooms

The Goods

You don’t need a glorious & idyllic setting to take care of yourself & meet your need for pleasure in new & exciting ways… but, it certainly helps. 

The Wild Adoration: Tuscany retreat takes place at Fattoria Del Colle, the family estate of Donatella Cinelli Colombini, award winning entrepreneur of the only all-female owned winery in Italy where they produce the memorable Brunello wine. Donatella’s ancestors first owned land in the Montalcino area in the 16th century, and recent generations have passed property down the female line. When Cinelli Colombini inherited the estate from her mother in the late 1990s, she went in search of a female staff at Siena’s oenology school. The vintners are all women, as is the winemaker – a unique situation in Italy, a flagship for women in the wine business. Included on the property are an award winning restaurant, Osteria di Donatella, a wellness space and a cooking school. The ancient land, villas, and chapel are infused with Old World charm, a dose of mystery and an invitation to unfetter your senses.

The wellness center at Fattoria del Colle offers a breathtaking view of the Val d’Orcia and Crete Senesi. In the wellness center there is a Turkish bath, sauna, relaxation room, sensorial shower, foot bath and Jacuzzi.

During our delicious week together in Tuscany, you are invited to sit at the table like family and soak up the magic of the Tuscany countryside, while you are nourished mind, body, and soul.

Fattoria Del Colle Wild Adoration Retreat

Experiment, Play & Celebrate with Mara

During our glorious week together, I will be teaching daily workshops about getting to the root of what you need, honoring those needs as we experiment and play with our decisions during our time together, and prioritizing pleasure and PLAY to craft an utterly satisfying life.

Unlike retreats where you rest and play only to return home to an extremely long to-do list (and the stress that accompanies it), the skills that I will teach you during your week together will be deliciously transferrable to ensure that you are able to weave the magic of your week in Tuscany into the fabric of your daily life.

Your Hosts

Hey there, I'm Mara Glatzel [she/her]

I'm an intuitive coach, and Needy podcast host who helps humans like you radically reclaim their needs in order to cultivate lives rich with sustenance and deep purpose. 

I’m the author of the forthcoming book Needy: How to Advocate for Your Needs & Claim Your Sovereignty, which is coming out in February 2023. 

I'm also a queer, femme wife and mother of two, recovering control freak, and a human who deeply understands the impulse to relegate my needs to the bottom of a very long to-do list in an attempt to prove my worth.
