Relax & wellness
In the Villa,on request, is available a “Silk Room“(36 mq) designated exclusively for massage and various kinds of courses (yoga, meditation..).
The silence of Podere Felceto surrounded by nature joined together with the guidance of Roberto Del Mastio are the setting for an experience of spiritual meditation practice.
Walking and sitting meditation, intended as a moment of reflection, help us to get in touch with ourselves, calm the mind and enjoy the present moment. With this practice we develop a deep awareness of the true nature of our being and of all the things that surround us.
Roberto Del Mastio as well as being the owner of Podere Felceto, has his own story to tell. In 1976, during a long journey to Nepal, he encountered Buddhist teachings for the first time. Upon returning to Italy he started to read several books on Buddhism, until 1982 when he began to attend the Monastery of Lama Tzong kapa at Pomaia. A few years later he opens the first center of Mahayana Buddhism in Florence, the “Ewan Center” and remains in charge until 2003.
In 1992 in Florence he meets the Zen Master Thich Nhat Hanh and he was deeply touched by his teachings. He followed him in long retreats at the monastery of Plum Village in France deepening the Zen walking and sitting meditation. In 1993 he began the group of “Friends of Thay” in Florence and remained in charge until 2010 introducing the practice throughout Tuscany. In 2018 he founded the new Zen practice group the “Thayini del Chianti” and also began a spiritual collaboration between Buddhists and Catholics.
Massages and well- being
Holiday means also relax; what better place than the peace of the countryside to give yourself a moment of care for body and mind. Michèle Biese, Shiatsu and Swedish Massage operator, has been collaborating in the tourism sector for years and speaks Italian, English, German and French.
“Looking back over the years, I see in my life the leitmotif that resides in the continuous search for profound well-being, for myself and for others.”
Shiatsu is a Japonese finger-pressure massage. Best used when we feel stressed, when we have tension and muscle aches and low vital energy. Shiatsu helps to prevent several issues related to our daily life.
Swedish massage is a discipline that aims to to provide mental and physical benefits to the individual through manipulation techniques that rebalance the body spiritually and mentally.
