Event description


The W.A.Y. Weekend,

Do you need to get away? Time for a reset? Ready to potentially have a new outlook on life? Sick and tired of the same old same old? These are some of the things and more that have happened to people while at Luminous (about an hour North of toronto) druing the W.A.Y. weekend experience.

A view of Luminous from the Field

This weekend was designed to help people really be themselves. In this day and age there is a serious lack of authenticity, and no one is to blame. We are told how to think, how to shop, what jobs we should be doing and even how to think. No wonder many of us feel so lost and dont know why. You need a weekend to yourself. What are you waiting for?

This is a weekend all about YOU! Personal development wrapped in fun exercises in an incredible environment, this is exactly the experience you have been looking for! As you'll see from the testimonials below, everyone absolutely loved it! (they keep piling up too but I just havent had the time to update the site, mroe available upon request!)

I dont want to tell you too much about the specifics of the weekend but I do believe anyone and everyone will experience a weekend they will never forget up at Luminous! There will be some challenges, a ton of excitement, music, laugheter and maybe even some tears. One thing is for certain you will make bonds that will last a lifetime.

Some of the things you can expect are:

- Incredible High Vibrational Yoga Classes (this is not the Yoga you're thinking and its suitble for all levels of experience even if its your first yoga class) facilitated by Camelia Medrea

-The opportunity to participate in a Nativa American Sweat Lodge Ceremony (Inipi)

-The opportunity to participate in an Ice Bath led by Certified Wim Hof Instructor Giovanni Bartolomeo

- Breathwork exercises.

-The most incredible meals prepared and provided by Holistic Nutritionist Patrizia Hasou RHN.

-The Ability to explore Incredible 25 acre property with mature forest and trails

-The opportunity to truly transform yourself and break out of your shell. Many people who have attended this workshop came out of it with a different perspective on life or recieved new insights about themselves and obstacles they had been facing whether, emotional, spiritual, work related and more.

-The ability to get away from the city and whatever you are dealing with right now and have a weekend for yourself so you can truly be yourself...trust me it feels GREAT!

-Much Much more.....

We also wanted to mention that all activities are 100% optional, if you want to sit something out and are not "feeling it" thats totally cool too!

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

Its hard to put into words the impact and value the WAY weekend has had on my life. Initially I came for a weekend away from the city and distractions to reconnect with myself and nature but I got so much more than that.

The facilitators are amazing and there was a very natural flow through the whole weekend. At luminous the space allows you to express yourself authentically, spontaneously and to commit to choices without second guessing yourself. I used to feel personally that indecision kept me safe, nothing changes and life goes on the way it has been, but all this did was cause stagnation in my life. Through the various activities over the weekend it brought me back closer to my divinity and allowed me to see that the best version of myself is not only possible but its happening. Luminous is infectious and left me feeling full of love and gratitude.

-Brad Philip

I would like to acknowledge Giovanni Bartolomeo for being an inspirational individual of extreme strength and focus. He has inspired me to challenge my mind and bust through several fears. Each of us has been chosen to bring light to the world in a particular fashion. In short, G is influencing individuals globally through his Facebook presence, workshops, events and retreats and having a major impact on creating positive change in the world and raising the vibration of the planet My soul thanks you G for all it has received and expressed because of you being you.

-Much love and peace, Rose Cerullo

MY experience at W.A.Y. Weekend was phenomenal! I was tossed into a realm that is quite new to me with an opportunity to try things I never thought of and found myself diving in head first. The group I was lucky enough to spend three days with were beautiful people from all walks of life which opened a dialogue I would never find among my closer similar thinking friends. To me that was enough, and yet I was given much more. There are some hidden gems up there, so don't be afraid to explore!

-Ariel Benavidez

"In all honesty, I was slightly nervous and apprehensive for the weekend as it lead closer. I had no expectations because there was very little information given about the activities we would be participating in. I suppose my fear was of the unknown. That being said, I knew Giovanni beforehand and I knew his mission was to create a welcoming space of open-mindedness, acceptance and love. This was the impression I had from the moment the retreat began to our closing goodbyes. As an alumni, I can’t speak of the specific activities we participated in but I can speak of the beautiful relationships that were formed over such a short period of time. It’s very rare to be in a space like this that encourages deep, meaningful discussions and thoughtfulness with like-minded individuals who all have the goal of bettering themselves. I felt restored and rejuvenated at the end of the weekend and held a new perspective on my life. I continue to keep in touch with some of the alumni’s and I am forever grateful for Giovanni’s leadership, wisdom and courage for seeing his dream through and creating such an amazing space for people to grow and learn"

-Blair Hohol

“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 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

So, if this resonates with you (and you have read this far), then I really think you should come.

Price includes 2 nights accomodation and all meals and snacks. We source organic and local when possible. The menu is mainly Vegan and Gluten and we can accomodate most allergies and sensitivities.

There is a certain degree of physical activity so if you are unsure if you can do it just send me a message (its nothing too difficult I promise).

Feel free to ask any questions: giovanni@collective-evolution.com

So what are you waiting for? See you at Luminous!!!
