初心 – Shoshin

The concept of Shoshin is expressed as “Beginner’s Mind”, referring to possessing an attitude of openness, determination, passion and the absence of preconceptions when studying a subject, even when studying at an advanced level, just as a beginner would do.

Along with my partner we decided to open the doors of our house by the sea to anyone who wants to study and deepen their knowledge of Kinbaku with us, in the intimacy of our private studio based precisely on this very important philosophical concept and at time same to enjoy the Italian beauties, from culture to food, to landscapes.

We offer our guests:

Kinbaku private lessons. Three hours of private lesson each day which topics will be discussed and studied freely based on the requests and knowledge of the guests.

Breakfast, lunch and overnight stay. We will offer you all the goodness of traditional Italian cuisine, always in accordance and harmony with the tastes and needs of our diners.

Relax and free time. In your free time you can go and visit some of the attractive features (like cities, museums, monuments, etc) in the suggestive and varied surrounding area or spend pleasant moments of relaxation in the nearby and well-equipped Spa.

For more information, reservations and to know the costs of stays we invite you to send an email to Andrearopes@gmail.com

For those not interested in staying but only wanting to take advantage of private lessons, you can do so at a cost of € 65 per hour (including VAT)
