Recent empirical research has established the effectiveness of Mindfulness-based strategies for the enhancement of our resilience, emotional intelligence, empathy, creativity and mental focus, demonstrating that Mindfulness can induce remarkable changes correlated with superior performance. At the same time, although we probably take pride in our ability to deal with more than one task simultaneously, neuroscience is now showing that the mind’s capacity for multitasking is extremely limited. Understandably, more and more US and European companies have been offering their employees and managers a host of Mindfulness programmes.

During our workshop, we will explore the basic principles and approaches offered by Mindfulness, for a first taste of this amazing capacity that is in-built in all of us.

A few years ago she stumbled upon Mindfulness and it was an immediate insight: in very little time she decided to start the teacher training pathway with the School of Medicine within the University of Massachusetts, where Jon Kabat-Zinn founded the Center for Mindfulness and designed the now renowned MBSR (Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction) Protocol and started a blog. In line with her lifestyle, her wish is to convey this approach of full awareness in different contexts (education, corporate, general) and languages (Italian and English) and locations (Sicily, Rome, Milan, Luxembourg). She has completed two courses of Mindfulness for Children and Adolescents, with Mindful Schools (2015) and Amy Saltzman (2017) and one on Mindful Eating (2015) with Jan Chozen Bays.
