Mindfulness & Meditation

Meditation as a tool for achieving mindfulness & benefits in our daily life

This Course is open to anyone who wants to explore the possibilities of meditation as a tool for achieving mindfulness and the different ways and benefits that this has in our daily life.

In the last 30 years an explosion of scientific research has been made regarding what happens in our brain when we meditate. Contemplative neuroscience studies states that the meditation practice decreases the activity in the right side of the prefrontal cortex of our brain where negative emotions as sadness or anger lies, while increasing the other side where creativity, happiness and compassion lies.

AIMS

We live in a world so attached to external stimulus. Every time that a conflict arises we try to see for reasons or solution outside ourselves, forgetting and detaching ourselves every time more from our great inner power and wisdom. Most of the time solutions and understanding lies within ourselves.

This Course is mainly designed to anyone who wants to explore the possibilities of meditation as a tool for achieving mindfulness and the different ways and benefits that this has in our daily life.

Participants from all over the world will learn how meditation can help them achieve inner peace. They will be able to develop positive thinking, gain emotional resilience, and increase human capacities such as empathy and kindness.
