The Renegade Method™
An Immersive Retreat:
Milan, Italy,  12-14th April 2024

The Renegade Method™ is developed to go from the logic of the conscious mind to the murky and often muddled subconscious mind, pull through the threads that hold together the false assumptions that lead to pain and suffering, and shine the light of awareness into those dark and forgotten areas to emerge being enough, fulfilled, self-actualized and joyful.

In this 3-day immersive retreat, we will explore the Renegade Method™ as it is useful to you through the innovative application of the Renegade Map. Once you learn how to work with it, you can apply it to any life circumstance (we will teach you when to apply it – all the time). Armed with this tool, you will leave empowered for having understood some of the root causes of unhappiness and how to address them directly so that you open progressively to joy, vibrancy, and sweetness in all aspects of life.


Situated in a 14-century village, the retreat center consists of a manor house, several farmsteads, a small country church and what used to be a stable, all of which have been completely renovated preserving the original spaces and rustic style. The place is surrounded by nature and is very quiet.

The meeting room is bright, with views of the surrounding hills.

Limited spots are available!
