Stop the clock and close your eyes.  Feel the eternal Mediterranean sun beaming over the cool turquoise sea.  Ever-green Malta is in bloom as always, and ancient Roman arches and landmarks run throughout the countryside as they have for millennia. Time has no hold here.

Relax, you are in Gozo now, where time slows; where luxury awaits and you have the space to rediscover yourself.  Imagine how your life will be different when you live at this new pace. 

If you’ve never heard of Gozo, one of the islands off Malta, that’s because it’s the world’s best kept secret.  If you are one of the fortunate few who discover it, the hidden treasures are all yours:  quaint villages, 17th century cathedrals and churches, heart-stopping coastlines, utterly delicious fulfilling days and tranquil transfixing, star-filled nights. 

Guess who will be joining us in Malta?  Lori Deschene, the founder of TinyBuddha (3 million monthly readers!!) and author of Tiny Buddha’s 365 Tiny Love Challenges (just her latest book.)  Lori’s work on Tiny Buddha is to curate inspiration, love and wisdom in many forms and voices – because life can be hard and there is a lot of peace and happiness that needs to be cultivated!  Tiny Buddha is about “simple wisdom for complex lives.”  You should definitely check it out if you don’t already know it. Lori is going to share this adventure with us as a peer and participant, not as a presenter.  Who knows? You might wind up becoming life-long friends! 



Nourish has taken care of every detail.  You can relax and trust that you will be attended to in every way. We will hold the sacred space where you can breathe and discover and grow, all while exploring new places and enjoying new friends and experiences.

Here in Malta (Gozo) you will find tours of historic Baroque architecture and memorable languid afternoons. You will find yourself immersed in remarkable, ancient landscapes and cradled in personal, local hospitality.   Let this welcoming place be your homecoming to yourself. Allow yourself to rediscover joy.
