Mindfulness program for emotional regulation and quality of life

We are aware of our bodily sensations, emotions and thoughts in a compassionate way, welcoming "what is already" is an essential skill for self-care and a quality life. In this course, let's practice and learn how mindfulness can help us to be open and engaged in a more present and connected life with our values. The program is directed to people who want to insert practices aimed at well-being, quality of life and emotional regulation in their day-to-day life.

What is mindfulness?

Mindfulness is the consciousness that emerges by paying attention at the present moment intentionally, with openness, curiosity and without judgments. Being aware of our bodily sensations, emotions and thoughts in a compassionate way, welcoming "what is already" is an essential skill for self-care and choices towards their personal values.

There is scientific evidence on the effectiveness of Mindfulness-based interventions for a wide variety of mental and physical disorders, such as anxiety, depression, chronic pain, food compulsion, prevention to the use of drugs, among others. Practices are differentiated in two types: formal and informal. The formal practices refer to the use of mindfulness meditation as a tool to develop full attention skills and deepen the awareness of the experience. Informal practices refer to the application of skills developed in everyday contexts. Examples of informal practices are walking, eating, listening, speaking with full attention. When attention is targeted intentionally for routine tasks, it can be transformed any moment lived as a space of practice and growth.

In the busy world we live, we tend to run on the autopilot. The intention of practice is to bring full attention to the moment at the moment, enabling more conscious contact in the relationship with others, the medium and with our sensations, thoughts, emotions and needs, even in difficult situations. It means being fully in contact with the experience of the moment without being absorbed by it.
