February 24, 2011. Tuscany has been a life-changing place for me. From the moment I arrive and smell the air I feel washed in the rich sights, sounds and smells of this beautiful place. The energy in Tuscany has brought me (1) great love, (2) gratitude and (3) inner quiet. The love part is a beautiful story whereby while on a train through total happenstance I met and fell in love with the most amazing man. Ahhhh yes just like in the movies such as Eat, Pray, Love but it was my real life (as it was for Elizabeth Gilbert too) and it is as my Italian grandmother, Nonna, used to say “tutto e destino”. Everything is destiny.
There is something about Tuscany that makes you remember to appreciate life! I am so grateful to appreciate the endless vistas, the serene vineyards of the Tuscan countryside, to marvel at the imposing fairy-tale architecture, or ride through the rolling hills that never end. Of course I also enjoy making time to shop, eat and sample a Chianti Classico or perhaps a little known SuperTuscan.
And perhaps what I find most peaceful is the gentle pace and rhythm of the Tuscan region which I try my best to bottle up and bring back with me. As the poet writes “When a great moment knocks on the door of your life, its sound is often no louder than the beating of your heart and it is very easy to miss it.” Tuscany inspires the kind of inner quiet that helps you hear the blessings of your life and I always return feeling more connected to my own innate wisdom.
This is why I love Tuscany and will continue to bring friends, yogis, family to experience firstand this mystical place forever! Join in Tuscany June 19-25 or October 16-22, 2011 in making memories to last a lifetime! Love yourself, love your day, love your life! Silvia
