Gianna Vallefuoco

Gianna carries years of experience in compassionate leadership in the construction industry and through mindfulness-based coursework. As an MMTCP certified mindfulness instructor through UC Berkeley’s Awareness Training Institute and Greater Good Science Center with Tara Brach and Jack Kornfield, she recognizes the deep connection between mindfulness and neuroscience. She uses principles from her training in self-compassion and Interpersonal Neurobiology to bring a multi-faceted approach to her teaching. Gianna works regularly with first responders and leadership teams, focusing on de-escalation practices, crisis intervention training, internal motivation, and self care.

Align, Breathe, Create

Join your retreat guides Sandy Abrams and Gianna Vallefuoco in the beautiful redwoods to learn specific breath and art principles to access your intuition, and move from creative intention into strategic action. You’ll also learn how to create intentional spaces you can bring back into your home to cultivate specific energy; a place for connection, respite, creativity, self-care, healing, and equanimity. This beautiful, empowering event is the perfect complement to your Woodside retreat experience.


Heed the Call

As humans, we tend to conform to social norms to be accepted. Often this means suppressing our innate calling in order to do what’s expected of us. This includes how we choose our friends, life partners, studies, professions, and our belief systems as a whole. We attach to the identity we create in order to fit in. Unfortunately, this can mean abandoning our intuitive calling, or “truth.” After years of feeling unfulfilled, I was able to quiet the influences that weren’t serving me, to find my own truth, and reconnect with my calling; creatively empowering others to thrive. Join me to create your own purpose-driven life, and to learn a skill set for thriving.
