3 steps to success

We have structured the complete OneX process into three main stages in order

to report the extraordinary clarity and intensity given by the experience into your ordinary life:

First Stage: preparation and synchrony - 4 WEEKS

Four weeks before the event you should start the preparation phase.

You will receive material to prepare yourself to the retreat and to find the right mood. 

You should do guided visualizations, a research about your life, a photografic collage, and more.

Second Stage: intensive training programme - 100 HOURS


During the retreat you will cross an intensive training programme of 10 hours per day.

All the aspects of our 'being humans' will be touch during the experience.

The unique and particular structure of this nine-day experience let the retreat to be

an intensive programmewhose effect last for several mounths.

The Unique Experience will take place in a wonderful place , where the nature

will surrond and accompany us.

Third Stage: integration and rooting - 6 WEEKS


During the integration phase you will be in contact with the selected partecipants

and you will support one each other in order to implement in the ordinary life what has happened.

With the OneX staff and community support it will be easy for you to integrate the experience in your life.

At the end of thi phase it will take place a meeting between the staff and all the partecipants.

This moment will be good to deepen the relation with the companios and to celebrate the end of the process.


Initiation Process


In our society no longer exist moments to think about our selves and we no longer have

hazing rituals that allow us to reflect about who we are and the meaning of life.

Just few tribal communities experience periods of retreat during which they can evaluate their personal

situation at different levels: physical, mental, emotional and spiritual. What once had that role, nowadays

has became just an occasion where to eat and to drink, without a particular meaning.

This misunderstanding confuse ourself and the whole society: we can't find and follow a clear

and conscious direction, we don't know who we are and where we are going!

The OneX Retreat is an initiation process, it's a valuation of our actual situation

in order to understand and set our new course of event and review our life.


The OneX Retreat encourages each participants to ask to themselves:


Who am I?


For what do I live?


What is my place in this world?

Thanks to this retreat I arrived to great achivements about my self and my relation to the world. I discovered a lot of the influence on my inconscious of my parents and this was scary but also beautiful because now I have a way to understand and work on important aspects for me. there were lots of moments in which I could feel an incredible power inside me, since I had that ' vision '... I felt my self really able to be and do what I want, to do extreme changes in my life and to face life's events ad I never did before. I had also moments of fragility and instability, of course; but it was great understand that just looking at you, Apurva, in order to reconnect me with the ' here and now '. I appreciated a lot the support and the union with all the other beautiful patecipants; to share this experience with them has been really important. Sara

Between all the things that has became treasures for me there are: the topic of the ' responsability of your life ' and the magic to share and not to hold your thoughts. During the Retreat, but also now, time enlarged... I live everything in a more intensive way and I fell the days like weeks. From the evening of the ' exam ' I feel my self more focus, determined and strong! I'm really observing my self and the things around me. I face the situations in a more detached way, as if it is a show. I can recognize that mans observe me all the time; i'm surprised! I feel myself calm, in peace, full of great energy, alive and able to do everything: it's a great sensation! Thanks Apurva for your support; thanks staff for your constant and discreate presence; thanks beautiful and unique  adventure matese! I'm really happy :) Barbara

The OneX Retreat was for me an incredible experience, really unique as the retreat's title says. I fell my self as never before,

really strong, rooted, focus, with a great personal power, compassionate and clear in my will to be happy! A great thanks to everyONE!!! :D Nicola

Now that I'm at home since two weeks, I can recognize and incredible change; also the people around me can see that just looking my eyes. I feel my worth, I feel my self able to give and receive. I have lived something beautiful and I know that it's what I must look for in my life.

I learnt to be open, to expose me, to trust people and situations, to laught at me, to appreciate me more. Lots of thoughts came out during the retreat; but with them I captured also my willingness to face and resolve them. I'm grateful. Elsa



My friend & teacher.jpg

The One X Retreat was born in the United States under the name of The One Experience TNI thanks to the work of a group of true researchers and therapists who wanted to develop a process through which we could clarify and transform deeply.

Thanks to this experience you can reach existential answers about our true nature as human beings. Thousands of people in different countries have successfully participated in this Retreat for over 30 years.   Created and presented initially by Frank Natale was immediately an inner process of strong impact in the life of those who have participated. There are people who have done the retreat more than once, as the effectiveness of achieved results and the internal clarity achieved have largely exceeded the initial expectations of each participant.

 In past decades, thanks to the contribution of many trainers and trained therapists from Frank Natale, from Natale itself and from the experience of hundreds and hundreds of participants, the The One Experience TNI has evolved in Retreat One X, absorbing and integrating new discoveries and research done in the field of human potential, humanistic therapy, meditation and awakening developed in recent decades.


The One X Retreat history's development in Europe through the TNI The Natale Institute


ONE X retreats have been held in Italy and Germany since 1990. The One X Retreat at the time called "The ONE Experience", a nine-day retreat, was led directly by the American therapist and teacher Frank Natale from 1990 to 1994/5.


In 1994, Frank Natale passed the management to his clients in Italy and Germany. Apurva led the training of new instructors until its separation from the TNI in the summer of 1996. From 1996-1999 Apurva continued training at the Soleluna Institute and Pangea Consulting. In 2000 and 2001, in agreement with Frank Natale, Apurva, together with a team of assistants led the further development of the 9-day structure by developing a new format called Collection ONE X.


Apurva Mastinu and Shaida Cartelà, managers of the Italian’s TNI branch, promoted and organized in Italy the experience with other collaborators included Markus Klepper, manager of the German’s TNI branch, who promoted the experience in Germany.


Apurva, Shaida, Markus and other people, the main organizers in Europe of this experience, became co-trainers with Frank Natale of all the courses and seminars offered, as well contributing to the creation and development of such seminars and retreats.

There were intense, touching and profound sharing and advice call between Frank and Apurva, to see where to make further corrections to a process that was already so profound and intense.

All this happened, with the knowledge that Frank had chosen to leave the body on his birthday and that there would no longer be another opportunity to do this in-depth, directly and with him. Soon Frank will leave the body to the Hawaiian Islands, as announced, on his birthday, June 21st.


The new format called Retreat One X takes up some elements of the original "The ONE Experience" and expands them to include current elements, experiences and results of brain research, as well as resource-oriented approaches to positive solutions, inner inquiry, meditation and self-recognition.
For many years Apurva was a personal assistant and close friend of Frank Natale and Jason Natale with whom he has travelled around the world.
Apurva inherited Natale’s work and has conducted dozens of editions of the One X Retreat over the years.

He is assisted by an experienced and capable team. Apurva led the One Experience Retreat with Frank Natale from which it was certified and formed and has personally guided this process in its original format for many years. Besides Apurva, there are currently other therapists and teachers in different countries who continue with enthusiasm and professionalism to present the courses and retreats created by Frank Natale.
