This 8-week course is based on Jon Kabat-Zinn’s MBSR Protocol, also offered to a general audience.
In this case, the focus of the meetings will be related to the specific stress related to being a parent at a time when the lack of extended family’s support and the contemporary lifestyle are big challenges to be faced.

Jon Kabat-Zinn’s Protocol will be complemented with reflections and practices taken from academic and clinical specialists such as dr. Susan Bogels, dr. Amy Saltzman, dr. Daniel Siegel, dr. Jefffey Young – but also spiritual figures like Thich Nath Hanh. We will explore what automatic reactions are triggered by children’s behaviour, in order to see that we have the option of responding differently to our children, connecting to them at a deeper level, as well as to our own inner child we are often not in contact with – through the so-called ‘re-parenting’ process.

PLEASE NOTE: this is an online course – get in touch if you’re interested in organising and in-person Protocol.

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.
