Besides the struggles of puberty, sexuality, addictions, etc., adolescence is a period where we start developing patterns related to past experiences that might have created shame, fear, and other wounds in us. However, it is also a great period to work on these patterns and wounds before they become rigid and more difficult to dissolve.


This workshop approaches three basic wounds: the wounds of shame, shock and our fears of separation and abandonment – the source of all our conflicts and difficulties in relationship, as well as the difficulties of that specific stage in life.


Through guided meditations, teaching, and carefully designed sharing exercises, we will work together on returning and connecting to our own essence.


This five-day workshop is residential for adolescents of age 15 to 20 years old. It will be in English (option for an Italian translation is pending).


The workshop will take place in a beautiful center located in the heart of Umbria, Italy.

Course price: € 580. Early bird price before April 30th 2020 - € 530.

The Facilitators:

Madeleine Gauffin:

I am a licensed psychologist and psychotherapist working with individuals, couples and groups.

Inner child work, co-dependency work, EMDR and meditation are ways to connect with your heart, your true being and your longings. They are also roads of discovery and exploration for fears, insecurities and traumas. Living with an open heart, finding the courage to embrace your vulnerability, and turning towards love is an authentic way to live.

By not escaping from what we feel and exploring those emotions, we get into our lives and we find an authentic way of being and expression. Learning Love is a deep and transformative approach, where body, soul and emotions all have equal space.
