handpan retreat


15 - 21 september 2019


(Due to popular demand of the first fully booked retreat, Sam Maher agreed to dedicate his free time to create an exclusive second workshop)

Limited Space only

“Dolce far niente”… the Italian way of saying - lay back and relax. This week is an invitation for you to disconnect, enjoy amazing food, beautiful beaches and most important take part in the exclusive Handpan workshop with the renowned artist Sam Maher.

This week is to reconnect with yourself and creating space for your essential needs and to unfold your inner creativity.

The retreat will be held at the beautiful, down to earth Agriturismo Nuraghe Tuttusoni. A small oasis, situated in a wild nature reserve, close to many beautiful beaches of Sardinia. A 5-10 min drive away from the house is already the first beach (Portobello di Gallura). The wild beauty of Sardinia's Nature is the perfect location to feel connected to all elements and to gain clarity for one self.

Agriturismo Nuraghe Tuttusoni is famous for their fresh homemade culinary experiences. Almost all the products come directly from their own farm. In the kitchen they are experimenting with incredible flavour combinations and offering many of the famous local dishes of the Sardinian cuisine. The chef Michela is also an amazing wine specialist (Sommelier) and can give you wonderful recommendations to pair with your dishes.

The rooms of the Agriturismo are simple, but clean and spacious and have view to the sea.

The one week Handpan workshop with Sam is a rare chance for you to learn all the essential skills, to start playing the Handpan by yourself. This workshop is open for complete beginners and also for people who already play the instrument.

If you don’t have already your own instrument, we will provide you with a Handpan*. We are honoured to be in collaboration with the exclusive and innovative Swiss Handpan Manufacturer ECHO SOUND SCULPTURE.
