Wine Through our senses:
The wines of Bodega Lunares have been awarded 1st Prize in the II, III, IV and VI edition of the contest “Vinos Sabor a Málaga” and 92.5 points in Xtrem Wine Guide. Let yourself be surprised the culinary creations of Chef STEVE ANTHONY and enjoy with the Spanish and flamenco guitar of ANDRÉS CANSINO.
“Wine, flamenco and food are the heart of Andalusia. And for Andalusians, the heart is about feeling. Different wines trigger different emotions. The guitarist and the chef tasted three wines from Bodega Lunares to inspire three “Palos Flamencos” and dishes for us to savour. Learn to taste the flavour of that emotion. It’s an exciting new way to taste and to experience the riches of Andalusia’s heritage. Join us with the guitarist, Andrés Cansino, and the chef, Steve Anthony, at Restaurante Pápalo on Wednesday, January 16th”

Didgeridoo Sessions: I sincerely invite you to individual or group one hour didgeridoo sessions.
Didgeridoo or Yidaki, is a traditional brass instrument. Aboriginal believe that the sound of this “windy instrument” created the world and everything in it. Deep vibrations connect us with the power of the Earth. This original, unique sound by tuning to the Earth and to the human body, clears with vibrations that open our chakras. In this way, Yidaki moves us into Unknown, into the dreaming state, that is why Aborigines gave it a nickname: “dreaming a pipe”.
Antique vibrations that are carried by didgeridoo often help us to enter into a deep state of relaxation and trance. These subtle states of consciousness, which we do not experience in every day life, support our ability to listen to our self, body and spirit. We then have the opportunity to discover our original desires, passion, motivation and create, thriving and happy life. It is there, in these deep meditations, that our body releases the vigorous energies, and the vibrations of Yidaki deepen it, allowing us to achieve harmony and balance, which we do not always have access to in daily life.
Investment: Individual – 50 Euros
Groups: 2 persons – 80 Euros
3-5 persons – 120 Euros
6-8 persons – 160 Euros
Sign up: meduz10@hotmail.com or you can call me or send me a message via mobile: (0034) 642 56 15 86
Place: You choose the place for the session. It can be your home, garden or a place in the nature where you feel comfortable. There is also a possibility to meet at my place.
