Mindfulness in movimento: mente e corpo nel viaggio verso la consapevolezza

10 February 2020


La pratica della mindfulness permette e sostiene la capacità di essere presenti a se stessi e consapevoli dei propri stati mentali attraverso un’attenzione intenzionale e non giudicante al momento presente: il corpo non è spettatore di questo processo, partecipandovi con la sua essenza, la sua presenza e le sue potenzialità.
L’osservazione e l’ascolto del corpo, statico e in movimento, sono passi fondamentali nel cammino verso una maggiore consapevolezza.
