Sanctuary – Inner Freedom through Presence

Sanctuary – Inner Freedom through Presence

From 2nd to 5th December 2021

A 3 night/4 day deep dive into Essence
Eremito Hotel Umbria
with Sheila Chacko & Nirdosh (Dr. Pierluigi Andreassi)
in English/Italiano

Slow down, take a deep breath, and allow yourself to reconnect to your innermost self. The natural sanctuary of the Umbrian wilderness at the legendary Eremito Hotel is the perfect blend of simple luxury and uncontaminated nature to facilitate this immersion into Being.

There has probably never been a better time to explore Inner Freedom. 

As we are faced with more and more circumstances that are beyond our control, the tendency is to become overwhelmed and anxious. On the other hand, what if we can create an inner sanctuary that facilitates spaciousness, choice, and freedom?

The basic key necessary to any exploration of our being  is Presence. 

It is this quality of being that allows us to perceive and mindfully witness ourselves. This non judgemental witnessing helps us navigate the outer structures of our personality that lead us to the most inner essential aspects of our True Nature.

Greater self awareness is the first step in cultivating a true inner freedom.

Instead of getting lost in addictions and dysfunctional patterns that lead to cycles of stress and low self esteem, we can swim “the moment” upstream back to our innate preciousness where we recognize aspects of our Being such as Peace, Joy, Compassion, Courage, and Power  just to name a few.

Growth, healing, and transformation through experiential understanding.

During this retreat you will be guided with various practices that facilitate Presence.  You will learn a method of inner work to precipitate the unfolding of your own Being and be introduced to teachings of ancient maps that will help you navigate the inner journey back to your own Essence.

This compassionate and inclusive approach allows us to become aware of  our strategies that were so necessary for our survival in childhood but are outdated and limiting as adults today.

Today, as adults, we can reclaim the sovereignty of our life, the freedom to be ourselves, and the joy of living our purpose and passion. 

Join us for this deep dive into Being and the mind, body, and soul nourishment that comes from slowing down, immersing in Nature, and attending to your inner sanctuary.

The venue




The Eremito is a modern day hermitage and luxurious eco hotel in the spiritual heart of Italy, Umbria, approximately half-way between Rome and Florence. Nestled in 3,000 hectares of forest, the nights are deep black, the silence in dense, and the peace is palpable. Eremito is leading the way in the digital detox phenomenon and is known for its signature silent dinner. A Design Hotel and architectural spectacle, the simple sophistication of Eremito lends to slowing down and calming the mind. We are so pleased to be hosting this retreat at Eremito as it is the truly perfect place to support the inner journey we will take together.

Sheila Chacko 

Sheila is a yoga teacher, embodiment coach, and counselor. She considers the wisdom of direct experience to be the most potent teacher and she empowers her students and clients to hone their skills of inner listening to be able to tap into their own inherent guidance and power. A true warrior of the divine, walking the yogic path for over 20 years, she has never compromised on what felt true to her.  With Indian and American origins, she is literally a bridge between the East and West and her work is a testament to the harmonious blending of Eastern spiritual teachings on awareness and western psychological and somatic approaches.

Nirdosh, Dr. Pierluigi Andreassi

Nirdosh is a physician, psychiatrist and eclectic psychotherapist. He embodies a curious nature and student attitude which has guided his search in many different directions both inner and outer. In recent years he has synthesized his many years of seeking in both western and eastern traditions and brought together his psychological and therapeutic academic skills and years of meditation and inner seeking through the framework of the Essence work. He also uses neo-Reikian Pulsation Bodywork to balance his work with the mind.
