Meet Your Tribe

Join OurPlantPowerWorld Movement by attending a retreat. Make lasting friendships for life; we stay connected post-retreat through monthly calls and meet-ups.




Daily Practices

Bring home practical meditation techniques to integrate into your daily life. Also, daily yoga classes for all levels will leave you feeling relaxed and rejuvenated. 



Cooking Demos

With two revolutionary plant-based cookbooks, SriMati will teach you how to cook some of her favorite recipes- including vegan cheeses  and Italian entrees! 



Live Music

Music is an integral part of our retreats. We have live acoustic sets by SriMati and her sons. 





Who are these retreats designed for?

The PlantPowerWay Retreats are for anyone wanting to live their most authentic life. This includes single people in a relationship traveling alone, couples attending together, and single people not in a relationship. Children under the age of 17 are not permitted.

What type of food will be served?

The retreats are for everyone - vegans, vegetarians, carnivores, pescatarians and omnivores alike. However, all food served during this retreat will be locally sourced and 100% plant-based. All the meals are designed by Julie Piatt in collaboration with the chefs at the villas. There are typically two dining out meals in a scenic location (if you need meat or dairy, you can likely order it at one or all of these three meals during the trip where we will be offsite.) Wine is included with your meals. Rich and Julie don't drink any alcohol, but we are in Europe, so wine in moderation is fine. We are serving three meals per day along with morning superfood blends. Any additional alcohol, cappuccinos, snacks or food ordered off the menu will be served at additional costs.

What is the cost?

We are happy to offer a range of pricing for the week. The program pricing ranges from $5900 - $9500 for Italy depending on the room category. The pricing includes all food, workshops, yoga classes, meditation, off site meals, drinks & one healing session per person.

Costs do not include travel insurance (mandatory- see below), ground transport, or flights.

What if I need a roommate?

Mel Nahas, our producer and concierge, can connect you with a roommate. Mel has years of experience taking bands on tour around the world. She is well versed in matching energies and styles so that you will feel at home with your roomie.
