The path is everywhere

-Matt Licata

AMANE curated recognizes the need to integrate a thread of Awareness through all domains of life.

The existent pressure to arrive at the podium of socio-cultural expectations is one of the reasons for the fragmentation within our collective psyche, as well as one of the main causes of depression, anxiety, addictions and emotional traumas. As the world in which we root our identities continues to fracture into separated particles, such as religion, sexuality, business and spirituality, our identities divides with it as well, while in fact they could be experienced as one living ecosystem. AMANE curated recognizes the need to integrate a thread of Awareness through all domains of life. We believe in providing people with an intimate (retreat) container of wisdom and the opportunity to cultivate a closer relationship with the teachers and the essence of what they share. We are platform hosting educational programs and retreats provided by a select number of leaders in the fields of Holistic Sciences, Meditation, Yogic philosophy, Movement and Art-expressions. We offer only a handful of courses per year. We keep them intimate, deep, and with limited occupancy to fully support each individual as they process and integrate the experience.
