Location of the 2023 Seminar
The 2024 Seminar will be held at Park Hotel ai Cappuccini located in Gubbio, Italy. The Park Hotel is a magnificently restored seventeenth century Franciscan Monastery that is now a luxurious hotel and spa nestled in the countryside of the ancient city of Gubbio. The harmonious blend of its antique setting and modern comforts creates a physical and psychological clearing that is ideal for the letting go of the burdens of everyday life and allows us to just be in a new way. Its elegant accommodations, tranquil atmosphere, and its beautiful wellness spa allow for both the soul and the body to be richly nourished.

Lunch at the Park Hotel ai Cappuccini
Lunch is included as part of the registration fee--and we'll be in for a real culinary treat in having our "pranzo" together at the hotel restaurant each day. You'll enjoy an exquisite three course meal of typical Umbrian dishes prepared with the utmost care and affection accompanied by delightfully resplendent regional wines. You'll have a choice from a selection of antipasti, primi piatti, secondi piatti, and/or dessert, topped off with coffee/espresso at the end of the meal. The gustatorial joy and conversation of our lunch time together will be the perfect compliment to the intellectual and spiritual nourishment of our work in the seminar.
Thursday Night's Closing Dinner
Our closing dinner on Thursday is also included in your registration fee. This dinner will take place in a restaurant located in the center of Gubbio and will include a multi-course extravaganza accompanied by magnificent local wines. The flavors and aromas, the ambiance of the medieval surroundings, and the generosity of the local people and culture will leave an indelible imprint that will make it all the more difficult to have to leave and return home. You won't be disappointed!
Participants are responsible for making their own travel arrangements to Gubbio. Leonardo da Vinci (Fiumicino) Airport in Rome is the closest international airport to Gubbio. A further 2 hour car/bus/or train ride will be required to arrive at the hotel in Gubbio. Smaller airports do exist in the region (Perugia, Ancona, and Rimini) and, while closer to Gubbio, offer fewer international flight options. In making your travel plans, please keep in mind possibilities for delays and the effects of jet lag. It might be helpful to arrive in Italy at least a day or two prior to the seminar. Flight insurance is also strongly recommended.
