Since last year, the global pandemic of Covid-19 has created many changes, uncertainty and even chaos in our lives.
How do you react to such changes, in anxiety and fear or in peace and trust? Is it possible for us to find peace and well-being in the midst of chaos?
Our brain is designed for change, and it is well adapted to uncertainty and the unknown. According to the most advanced research in neuroscience – the science about our brain and the nervous system, the direction of our attention and thoughts directly affects the function of our brain. In fact, our physical brain has the ability to change subject to our life experiences and our intentional focus throughout adulthood.
There are simple and effective practices such as mindfulness or journaling we can adopt every day, to prepare our mind and brain in a state of well-being and resilience, so we can better regulate our emotions as well as our physical bodies.
What will we cover?
In this workshop you will learn:
- Core concepts in neuroscience and their relevance in uncertain times
- The notion of impermanence in Eastern philosophy
- Practical and science-based practices for cultivating good physical, mental and emotional habits to promote a state of well-being and resilience
We will finish with a guided LIVE meditation to finish.
