 San Fedele is…

“A place where you can unplug from the busy world and reconnect with yourself, in the tranquility of the enchanted Chianti countryside but close to all of Tuscany’s major art cities, treasures and attractions. Every event is tailor made around our guest’s requirements and wishes.” - Nicolò & Renata, Owners 

Borgo San Fedele lies in the district of Radda in Chianti, 7 km from the traditional village which, together with the districts of Castellina and Gaiole, formed in the Middle-ages, the ancient “Lega del Chianti”. Siena is 12 km away, one of the most magical art cities in Italy. One hour’s drive away is the Val d’Orcia, Pienza and Montalcino, famous for renowned pecorino cheese and the superb Brunello wine. Florence and San Gimignano are both 45 minutes away.

Zen and Jazz: A Mindfulness Approach…

The essence of Zen is awareness; awareness of thoughts, words and actions; how we respond to the present moment; all that arises and falls away as we move through our lives. This is the essence of Jazz as well; the ability to listen and respond, moment to moment, in the interplay and exchange of notes and chords. When we engage all of our senses to live fully, embracing our lives as an infinite connection with everything and everyone, we create the music of life and take part in a flowing, seamless dance with conscious awareness that every step, every movement is intimately related. When we pay attention, when we are awake in the “now”, with an open mind, we find meaning and substance in our lives, and we nourish ourselves and others with no thought of holding back or hoarding. This is the supreme meal, the joy we can only experience in relationship to others. All are invited to the table, all are fed, and the giving and receiving become one. This is the nature of JazZenJourneySM
