A 'Slow & Mindful Escape' in Tuscany
Dates: 26 September to 01 October 2019 (6 days / 5 nights)
Where: La Concia, Codiponte, Tuscany - Italy
Join us for a 6 day immersive SLOW ESCAPE in Tuscany. Wake up to the breathtaking views of the Apuan Mountains, enjoy a moment of silence in a meditation practice - and then join us in a gathering around the breakfast table with delicious local and seasonal food and a steaming hot espresso, before starting our day.
After a successful Slow Escape in Tuscany earlier this year we decided to launch a second edition, tweaked a little here and there, but more or less in the same setting. You can read about our previous Slow Escape In Tuscany here.
What can you expect? Our days will be filled with as much empty space as unique and slow travel experiences. Why? Because we believe in balance. There will be time to unwind, to relax, to recover from your busy life, to just be. As will there be time to experience 'the good Italian life'. Visiting local farmers, learning about age old culinary traditions and tasting some of the best wines the region has to offer. One of the many highlights of our Slow Escape; we will be learning how to make our own fresh pasta and focaccia. So prepare to have fun and get down and dirty! We will be in nature for walks and learning about indigenous flowers and herbs, about their use and medicinal purpose. Needless to say that a retreat in Tuscany calls for some serious indulging in local cuisine. Davide, our host, will be cooking healthy, seasonal, fresh and mostly organic Italian food.
For our stay we have chosen a beautiful, authentic and ancient Tuscan stone house, La Concia. It’s situated in the cozy town of Codiponte, amidst olive groves and with breathtaking views. It will be the perfect backdrop for all the beauty this region has to offer. At night the scenery turns to magic as we gather around the table for delicious meals and share stories while the fireflies come out and light up the sky.
To enhance this immersive experience, mindfulness classes will be given. While learning how to focus on the breath and how to gain full conscious awareness, you will start to notice a relief from stress. It will help gain clarity of the mind and give you a new perspective on how to live a happier and more balanced life.
Slow Living will be the red thread throughout this retreat. Mixing unique and special slow travel experiences with mindfulness classes and ample free time to seriously unwind.
