The W.A.Y. Weekend March 17-19 2017

March 17, 2017 @ 7:00 pm - March 19, 2017 @ 6:00 pm



It was all a dream . . . No really, it was. A few years ago, I had a vision of a place where magic could happen. I thought about this place all the time, and if you believe in the law of attraction or manifestation, or even if you don’t, the vision came true.

On Feb 3-5 (Superbowl weekend), I invited a bunch of guinea pigs up to our retreat center without telling them much about what would happen. I simply told them that we wouldn’t do anything I wouldn’t do, and to just trust me. They did (and I love them for it). Let me tell you, the experience was incredible.

Here are a couple of the testimonials from the first group:

“The W.A.Y. weekend was relaxing, rejuvenating and a ton of fun. I was surrounded by amazing and loving people while I spent the weekend living at the beautiful Luminous retreat centre on 25-acres of land, equipped with an infrared sauna, a natural pool, sweat lodge, forest, ice bath, ping pong, and the most delicious healthy and organic food.

I explored myself physically, mentally, emotionally and spiritually through a series of workshops and activities, all of which were awesome. I gained a lot from the weekend, including powerful connections with a new group of friends.”

– Michael Sanders

“This weekend will allow you to see others and yourself in a different light. It will bring compassion, empathy, intuition and joy to the forefront of your consciousness. It might push you beyond your comfort zone but will make you more comfortable with who you truly are. Activities are planned and carried out with intent and purpose and will leave you with memories you will cherish forever.

I’ve been on a spiritual journey for the last few years and this weekend took my journey to a whole new level. I learned to much about myself and more importantly learned to accept so much more about myself. Our life is about the people in it and about the love, joy and peace we can bring to those people and to the world.

If you’ve ever thought “there’s got to be more to life that this” or just feel stuck, unhappy or unsure, you should spend a weekend with some other people who might be feeling the same. Compassion, empathy, acceptance, kindness, love and joy are some of the words to describe what I felt this weekend. This is how we can come back to the essence of what we need in our lives and how we can begin to show others the same. ”

– Patrizia Hasou

“I didn’t know what to expect going into The W.A.Y. Retreat and it was for exactly that reason that I experienced the shifts and growth that I did. No preconceptions meant for me that I was open for something new (or opening to something new?), and experience something new I did.

Giovanni Bartolomeo, both as Facilitator and Participant, elegantly wove together a number of activities that created an uncommon space of trust and connection for authentic personal growth to flourish, and deep personal transformation to take place.

Along with the many deep and enlightening experiences I had, I built life long bonds with truly amazing people and, together, we changed. I opened up to a really deep part of myself, something I hadn’t done before.

The Luminous Consciousness Advancement Centre, on 25 acres of green, was a beautiful place to hold the Retreat. Everything to sustain and fulfill you was provided including food. All in, you will feel nourished in body, mind and spirit.

If I could describe The W.A.Y. Retreat in only a few short words I would say it will leave you a more authentic, enlightened and inspired you. “

-Elliott Meltzer

“The moment I walked into the amazing facilities of the Luminous Retreat Center the Tree Mural and the Buddha brought to me a feeling of Zen peace and felt instantly welcomed.

Giovanni is an amazing facilitator for the the inner transformation and with a heart of gold.

The WAY Retreat was memorable for me. Something shifted in me energetically and I am not the same my whole being is still vibrating high.”

– Camelia Medrea

“The W.A.Y Weekend was absolutely incredible. I had no idea what to expect going in. I felt so at peace and comfortable the second I stepped through the doors. It was like a second home. A beautiful piece of property sitting on an expansive 25 acres of land. The group was small and the connections were intense. Everything that happened was in a divine flow. I would recommend this retreat to anyone who hasn’t had enough time to give back to themselves. time to discover who you really are and what love really means to you. Welcome to the W.A.Y.”

-Elizabeth April
