These walks, in the city of Florence or in neighboring towns, aim at meeting artists and artisans in their workshops. You will learn about their art and get a first hand and experience of their workmanship. Sculpture, ceramics, woodcarving, blacksmanship, weaving and basket-weaving are among the many arts and crafts kept alive today in the region. The itinerary will be planned to your particular interest.
For millennia pilgrims have travelled to honor the Madonna in her sanctuaries, as well as to St. Francis’ hermitage at La Verna, St. Romualdo’s in Camaldoli, St. Gualberto’s in Vallombrosa. Many others reached Rome along the via Francigena and via Romea. With a medieval road underfoot and a monastery as our destination, we will explore the beauty of these sacred and protected areas seemingly untouched by time.
While enjoying the beautiful Tuscan countryside you will be guided to the basic practice of mindfulness in order to become more aware of the present moment. Practicing mindful walking allows us to bring our mind home to our body. As we hike through nature each step becomes nourishing and healing.
