You Sing. We do the rest!
OPIFICIO Voice & Craft
PRATO 10-17 giugno 2017 


Do You Need A Vacation?


Yes, of course you do. 


But more importantly, you deserve one. 


Take a break from the hustle, the routine, the exhaustion and the mundane. 

Allow yourself to relax, let go, and be recharged in the same corner of the world that birthed humanity’s glorious Renaissance:

Tuscany, Italy


Create life-long friendships with like minded souls, 

Eat melt in your mouth local cuisine, 

Explore Tuscany with excursions that will leave you bursting with creativity, 

Clear away the incessant mental chatter with daily meditations, 

Enjoy workshops that will set you free through voice, mind and spirit. 





How Did The Mind & Voice Retreat Come About?


When we (Giovanna and Grace) first met in Venice, California there was an instant, deep, and soulful connection. 


We realized right away how our two areas of expertise could help so many when combined. 


The truth is, there are so many souls who want to share their voice with the world, but do not have the courage to do it. 


So many people typing away at thankless jobs day in and day who so long to let their hearts burst wide open with creativity and a passion for life. 


We wanted to fulfill this need and help our students reach a new level of self-expression… and where better to do that than in Italy? 


We so look forward to getting to know each and every one of you in June 2017! 





This Retreat is for YOU if you... 


Love to travel,

Love melt-in-your-mouth fresh food
and divine cappuccinos,

Want to improve your public speaking
by leaps and bounds,

Want to sing with abandon 
(even if it's just in your shower),

Want to unlock new layers of
your unique creativity,

Want to be a master of

Want to live a richer, deeper,
fuller life.
