Biella, Italy

Soul Trails

We are thrilled to host weekend long self-guided personal retreats for those who are seeking new direction in life, or needing rest, renewal and fresh perspective. We invite you to carve out time to unplug, and step into a slower pace of being for a weekend in order to care for your soul, body and mind.

About the Retreat

Location: The home base for the Soul Trails is Biella, a historic Italian town at the foot of the Alps. The surrounding mountains here are absolutely stunning! 

Guidebook: Our carefully designed retreat guidebook will accompany you through creative practices that invite you to a deep exploration of the landscape of your soul, and encounter nature, self, and the Divine.

Accommodation: You will be staying at a handmade artisan guest house where both your body and soul will rest.  Your on-site hosts will assure all the practical details of your personal weekend away have been worked out for a restful retreat experience. Learn more about your hosts and their guest house here

Spiritual Direction: We offer a 30-minute online private spiritual direction session that will help you to listen deeply as you prepare or reflect on you experience afterwards.

The retreat guidebook has been written and designed by a certified spiritual director and experienced retreat facilitator, Kaisa Stenberg-Lee. Kaisa has several years of experience facilitating soul care experiences and offering spiritual accompaniment to people from all backgrounds. You can learn more about Kaisa here.

Note, she is not currently offering one-to-one Spiritual Direction services beyond the Soul Trails due to her maternity leave. 


Map and directions will be provided. We recommend you to come with a hiking companion, for your safety. Also a good physical condition and good hiking shoes are required. Some hiking experience is preferable. However it is not mandatory to venture for an Alpine hike. We can provide a lighter walk or even a wet weather option for your retreat.  


Ages: 18+

“PILGRIM: We are so much made of movement that we speak intuitively of the destination being both inside us and beyond us; we sense we are the journey along the way, the one who makes it and the one who has already arrived."

David Whyte, Consolations 


This retreat is on a "trust" pay-as-you-feel basis. Our suggested minimum donation is 60 euros ( or $ 65 ) to cover the basic hosting expenses. We truly believe that restorative rhythms, such as a weekend away in nature, are not a luxury for the rich but a necessity for all. Your donation will help cover the hospitality costs, and if you are able, sponsor retreatants who have less resources available.


Pay for your stay

This option will cover the basics of your weekend: accommodation, light breakfast and a print for the retreat guide, but not the work put into creating the experience for you. 


Pay for your experience

In addition to covering the hosting expenses, your donation will support the work that the hosts and the retreat guide put into offering you this retreat.


Pay it forward

By giving a little extra, you help sponsor other Soul Trailers who have less means to pay for their weekend away. Thank you for your generosity!
