Few places offer the diversity and richness that can be found in Sicily, a paradise for anybody interested in history, nature, food & wine, sport, relax and, of course, Mindfulness. In order to help you shift from Sightseeing to Insight of Sicily, I'd like to offer a combination of experiences for the senses, the body and the mind, an opportunity to get in touch with Nature at its best, but also your creativity and well-being. It is more than a retreat and way more than a holiday – it is an experiential time shared with a small community in a very privileged way! I will take you on a walk to discover the local wonders using more than just the eyes, with a series of Mindfulness-based practices to make the most of these incredible locations while enjoying a truly transformative experience. Our sensory immersion will start right in Ortygia, with a walk through the multi-coloured, noisy, lively and simply wonderful market to buy picnic supplies for our lunch, then we will transfer (independently) to the starting point of our walk. We'll be back by mid-afternoon.
A translator, interpreter, active tour leader and planner, teacher of foreign languages, with a passion for cinema, travel and Argentine tango, I have lived in several places in Italy and abroad. A few years ago I stumbled upon Mindfulness and it was love at first sight: in very little time I decided to start training with the University of Massachusetts, to teach the Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction Protocol. I have now offered several MBSR cycles and workshops, but Mindful Walks in nature provide an ideal opportunity for a truly experiential and transformative experience.
market supplies. small snacks we will buy them together at the market and then share them in our backpacks .
some gear available is there any gear you would like to borrow? if available, I'll be happy to share, e.g. some walking…
Depending on weather conditions, the season, the level of participants, there are a series of destinations that I would be delighted to share with any open-minded, curious travellers, most of which are off the beaten path and could certainly not be experienced in this way on your own. From a loop around the amazing Pantalica Necropolises to the canyons hiding Arabic tanneries and mills in Ancient Noto, to the unspoilt Cassibile area and beyond.
最多可有10位年满18周岁的参与者参加。 Please get in touch and let me know of any special needs/personal issues that may affect your fully enjoying our experience together!
The walks are not very difficult, but please make sure you're used to walking 2-3 hours and deal with sunlight and heat - this is Sicily! Yet this is no race, so it'll be a slow experience!
