in six days with
Lorenza Guidotti and
An introductory course to learn how to face everyday life without stress Awareness or meaning means paying attention to the present moment.
Six steps of Mindfulness in six days
with Lorenza Guidotti and Patrizia Vaccaro
It can also be described as a way to cultivate a longer experience in the experience of the moment, in the here and now, without thinking about how to do it in 1 hour or a month without ruminating on what has happened in the past. This is something we all have, but that we have generally exercised very little in life. In fact, we spend most of our time acting as “automatically”, prey of our thoughts: we worry about how to happen in the future or we get lost in remorse and ruminations about what happened in the past. And we are never in the present. If then we are experiencing a stressful situation, which is a disease, a chronic pain, a discomfort at work or a family problem, the situation gets worse. And to the stress itself we are adding the load of continuous negative thoughts that torment us. Awareness is useful in these situations. Not because it heals us, eliminates pain or magically solves every problem, but because it changes our way of being with pain, with that difficulty or with that specific stress. Through the “practice” of Consciousness we can increase our resilience to stress. Through this path you will learn to look at the sensations of the body, the thoughts, the unfair emotions freely from moment to moment and accepting them as they are. This is a new way of dealing with stressors that is no longer reactive and automatic, but free from conditioning, more peaceful and conscious.
