Carl Honore is hosting a slow retreat from October 11th to 18th 2009 in Italy at a renovated 17th-century farmhouse set in 20 acres of farm and woodland in the rolling hills of Umbria. The retreat is designed for people who are always in a hurry and yearn to slow down.
This is so much more than just a holiday in the land of la dolce vita. It’s a chance to explore and experience the ideas behind the book that defined the international Slow Movement with the author himself. A chance to reconnect with your inner tortoise, reset your metronome and reinvent your life.
Knowing Carl personally and having heard him speak on more than one occasion, he invokes and engages as he explores the benefits of deceleration and tracks how people everywhere are putting the Slow creed into practice.
Love this media kudo: ABC News christened him “the unofficial godfather of a growing cultural shift toward slowing down.”
Carl will lead a week of workshops, talks, debates and activities that will show you how slowing down can help you work, play and live better in the modern world. Click here to find out more and book for the retreat.
