Being mindful is a state of consciousness, in which we recognize and accept what is happening in the present moment, just as it is. The mindfulness skill allows us to work collaboratively with the mind, so that we can advance ourselves toward our goals. There are many situations, where thoughts (what will happen tomorrow? What happened yesterday?), emotions (frustration, anger, anxiety, etc.), physical sensations (back pain, migraine, etc.) or external stimuli, attract our attention and magnetize our mind. The “mindfulness muscle training” will allow us to control our attention more easily, so that we can direct it effectively, according to our wishes, and we will be able to stay present and participate fully in the situation (talking to a friend, playing with our children, reading an article, etc.).
This workshop includes theoretical study and experiential exercises, in order to develop the skill of mindfulness and better regulate and manage ourselves. Sequence of meetings:
• First session – orientation to mindfulness, goals and emphases for practice and application to daily life.
• Second session – What do you do to be attentive? “What” and “How” skills?
• Third session – the three “states of the self”: Emotional mind, Reasonable mind and Wise mind.
