Mindfulness immersi nella natura

Mindfulness immersed in nature

Mindfulness: what it is

“Breath is the bridge that connects life to consciousness, that unites the body to thoughts. Whenever the mind gets lost, the breath is the means that allows you to bring it back”. Thich Nhat Hanh

Master Thich Nhat Hanh teaches us that breath is already mindfulness and mindfulness is what helps us to live our lives to the fullest: 

“. When washing the dishes one should only wash the dishes. I am fully myself, following my breath, aware of my presence and aware of my thoughts and actions. Nothing can toss me here and there at will like a bottle at the mercy of the waves…”.

The word mindfulness literally means "fullness of consciousness", i.e. a state of full awareness, in the present.

Mental presence helps us to live our lives to the fullest, to be present to ourselves and this is possible thanks to the breath.

In recent decades, numerous researches and protocols have been developed on health promotion practices using mindfulness.

John Kabat Zinn, Professor of Medicine and founder of the Stress Reduction Clinic and the Center for Mindfulness in Medicine, Health Care and Society developed the Mindfulness – Based Stress Reduction MBSR protocol by defining mindfulness as “the process of paying attention in a particular way: intentionally, in a non-judgmental way, to the flow of experience moment by moment”.

More than 2500 studies concerning Mindfulness have now highlighted its effectiveness in terms of reducing cortisol levels (the stress and anxiety hormone), testosterone levels (aggression and violence), depression (increase in serotonin and dopamine), muscle and mental tension, nervousness, insomnia, hyperexcitation, hypertension (decrease in adrenaline and noradrenaline), chronic pain, inflammation, etc.

Psychosomatic mindfulness

Psychosomatic mindfulness, as an evolution of the MBSR protocol, is a system based on awareness of the Self and personal growth; use body movement and/or breathing as phases facilitating the actual state of meditation.

The main objectives are: 

  • improve well-being through stress reduction;
  • improve body and energy awareness;
  • improve emotional and relational awareness;
  • develop higher integrity and awareness of Self.


Some testimonials from psychosomatic mindfulness meetings: 

"Being able to travel within yourself is an exciting experience. I never imagined it was possible, but over time I realized I could do it without any difficulty and fear. "

"Participating in these meetings allows me to break the rhythm of the working days that stress me out and so I can have some space for myself. I can feel the body and then balance the mind. Despite the resistance that would make me give up, at the end of the meeting I bring home a lot of gratitude and trust in life. "

At this point you just have to try!
