Between Earth and Moon in Crete Senesi

Castello di Leonina Relais

Asciano (SI)

The earth, the moon, the silence, internal strength, the spirit. The magic of the place, the colours, the fragrances, the space, the spirit. The journey, the wind, the shadows, the destination, the spirit. Here the cycle of nature envelops us completely and the journey between the earth and the moon purifies us.

You are free to programme your arrival at the hotel during the day.

From 14.00 hrs. your room will welcome you to the peace and tranquility of the Crete Senesi and the simple nobility of the Leonina Castle offers you space and relaxation, rest and contemplation.

The antique residence fortified by the Chigi princes, dominates from above a knoll of an almost lunar immobile countryside of round earthy hills as far as the eye can see, cultivated with wheat and grain since the Middle Ages.

The Tuscan Spirit ambassador will meet you in the evening and welcome you with a Tuscan herb tea, introduce you to your fellow participants and illustrate to everyone “Between the earth and the moon”.

A holistic teacher will then conduct the first yoga session dedicated to “Greet the Moon” and the practice of relaxation for sleep. In your room, a relaxing herb tea and locally produced honey to wish you pleasant dreams.

A pleasant wake-up to the day with fresh fruit juices and hot drinks accompanied by simple biscuits: the teachers recommend a light diet for the morning holistic session.
You will practice meditation with a walk along a path between the fields of bare earth to reach an area crowned by an extraordinary environmental sculpture erected “for the passage of the shadows and the wind” where you will “Greet the Sun”.

On returning to the hotel you may alternate your wellness programme either in the “humid” area of the spa, or by relaxing in the fresh air immersing yourself in the countryside while waiting to abandon yourself to capable hands during an hour of holistic massage designed to harmonize body and mind.

A buffet brunch with a variety of fresh foods and traditionally prepared sweets and salads allow you to create your own personal menu, and to savour it to suit your programme in a preselected corner of the restaurant or in the refreshment area facing the hills.

In the evening a rich seasonal dinner at the castle seated at a large table sumptuously laiden with local products – with music to entertain you as you savour the peaceful joy of elegant country life. Sweet dreams with a relaxing herb tea and locally produced honey served in your room.

A pleasant wake-up according to the dictates of the disciplines to be ready for the morning holistic practice session. The session of walking meditation will take you to along new paths, teaching you unexpected breaches in your personal being and the environment surrounding you.

There will follow the practice of “Greet the Sun” and yoga exercises for breathing. Breakfast in tranquility appreciating the delights of the Leonina Castle buffet breakfast. The experience of the extraordinary territory of the “Crete”, renewed contact with the natural environment, of an agricultural civilization linked to the path of the stars just as the rhythms of the seasons.

A new significance will be illuminated during a meeting with an expert, based on the theme of the moon and its influence on every vital cycle of the earth to bring together the various aspects of the week-end. As is the custom in the Tuscan countryside, a toast and good wish for a safe journey are made with a final glass of rustic aperitif.

On request, you may check out as late as 17.00 hrs. so you may continue to enjoy the comforts of your room and the hospitality of the Leonina Castle.
