Description

What will you learn and experience: during this workshop we will introduce the biological principles behind the stress response, and you will learn and go through simple but powerful techniques to control your daily life stress. We will also help you understand and feel the power of scientific meditation with a deep body and mind relaxation exercise.   

About Scientific meditation: just like there are different ways to exercise your body there are also different ways to practice meditation. In this workshop we will go through a kind of meditation which is not spiritual, it doesn’t require to “empty your mind”, neither to chant a mantra sitting in the lotus position… Instead, this meditation (also known as dynamic meditation) is based on visualizations, similar to the one used by top athletes to improve their sport performance. Thus if you can dream you can meditate. Sorry for just killing your “I can’t meditate” excuse!
