Chill – Connect – Create Camp

The Concept

Chill – Connect – Create is a 3-step transformation process, first introduced in Annicken R. Day's bestselling novel Fly, Butterfly.

It starts with Chill:, to slow down, breathe, relax and enjoy. To have all our senses awakened and create space in our minds, hearts and souls for what comes next.

Connect is about exploring, listening, and connecting to ourselves; finding back to the essence of who we are, why we are here, and rediscover our heart's true desires.

Create is about finding back to our creative core, to turn our ideas and dreams into something tangible, something real, something that is ready to be created and manifested. 

The 7-days Chill, Connect, Create experience is designed to take you on a journey into yourself, and give you the inspiration and tools to bring what you learn back into your life and to the world.  

Why Camp?

We chose the word Camp as it has has an active, social, informal and playful energy to it - just like our Camp!

We will be staying in a beautiful, newly renovated Tuscan farmhouse with an view over the Tuscan landscape while we talk, enjoy ourselves, and indulge in the wonderful culinary experiences the region can offer.

Whether you choose to stay in a shared or a single  bedroom, you will be socialising with the other "Campers" during the days and evenings. And if you need some alone time, there are plenty of spaces where you can have that as well.

We have created a unique program that spans from (simple) yoga and meditation to inspiring workshops, self-reflection and group discussions, combined with plenty of time for pure enjoyment. This is designed for you, and you are free to pick and choose whatever activities, experiences and sessions that feels most right for you.

7 Days About YOU

How often do you take time to focus on YOU?

To relax, give yourself some time and attention, enjoy yourself, and just BE. To reflect on where you are in life, what matters to you, what you want? And then start creating it.

The Chill, Connect, Create Camp is designed to give you the place, the space, the environment and the inspiration to focus on the most important person in your life: YOU. 

By giving yourself the gift of chill and relaxation, connecting with yourself and others, and tap into your creative power to move forward with something that matters to you, you are making your thoughts, ideas, dreams and feelings count… and put into motion.   

What comes after that might be pure magic. 

Your wings already exist. You just need to spread them and FLY.

The Place

Chianti, Tuscany

Chianti's landscape, nestled in the heart of Tuscany, Italy, is a captivating tapestry of rolling hills adorned with vineyards, olive groves, and ancient villages. The picturesque terrain is a testament to centuries of viticultural heritage, offering a unique terroir ideal for grape cultivation.

The area's history of winemaking stretches back centuries, with vineyards dating back to the Etruscan era.

This rich viticultural heritage is the foundation for the exceptional quality and distinct character found in Chianti wines.

With cities like Florence, Siena and San Gimignano close by, Chianti is the ideal location for those who want to explore the heart of Tuscany, which includes all the culinary experiences and beautiful wines that can be found all over the region.

The villa offers air-conditioned bedrooms, large private pool and an elegant cobbled courtyard overlooking the magical countryside of rolling hills peppered with hamlets, vineyards, woodlands and olive groves. The views are made even more majestic when accompanied by a the beautiful sunset that is simply breathtaking from Tizzano's position in the hills.

A country retreat of an aristocratic Italian family for several generations, it carries the patina of centuries-old love and care. The villa’s has been retained throughout with antiques, art objects, comfortable sofas and shelves filled with rare books. This stylish atmosphere envelopes the three seating areas, one with beautiful vaulted ceilings, which provide plenty of quiet reading corners as well as space for the whole party to gather.

Set on a hill just a half-mile outside the medieval town of Barberino val d’Elsa, Tizzano offers a great location from where to visit some of the most important Chianti towns or villages, and the famous San Gimignano is 25 minutes away. Florence and Siena are 40 minutes by car or one hour by bus.

Attending this camp was one of the best decisions that I’ve ever made. Just imagine waking up in wonderful Tuscany, doing yoga every morning, and connecting with people from all over the world.

Annicken and her great team managed to create an environment for reflection and curiosity. A safe place, where I could open up, connect, and share my dreams and fears. It gave me exciting and important new insights about myself, and also a reminder of what makes me happy. And a nice bonus; all my new friends, the Butterfly People.

A huge thank you to the team for nurturing and waking up my body, mind and soul.

 – Mona Hegrenes

Annicken R. Day has created a unique concept for personal growth with the Chill– Connect–Create Camp. Beautiful surroundings, soft yoga, massages, shared meals for pleasure and joy. Reflections, deep conversations, coaching and learning from each other. Activities that awakened the power of creativity, trips in the local area, new friendships, and the togetherness of the group. All this combined made the week in Tuscany a unique, personal, holistic, and magical experience.

I returned home with renewed inspiration to complete a larger project, a new drive to pursue my dream, and an open mind to change and create new beginnings. I had forgotten myself, but I found back to the creative part of me during the stay. By giving myself some time off, having fun, turning the focus inwards, and start creating something new; my joy for life has returned.
