A Program for Learning, Growing, and Healing
To “learn” to take care of yourself, to develop a greater state of serenity and peace of mind, to be protagonists in choosing personal health and well-being
The “Mindfulness Based” interventions that the Center proposes are clinical and psycho-social interventions, validated by the research literature, which integrate awareness practices with scientific and psychoeducational aspects. The Mindfulness protocol Based Stress Reduction, an integral part of behavioral medicine or mind / body medicine, was developed by Prof. Jon Kabat Zinn in the late ’70s at the University of Worcester (Boston) Massachusetts and has since spread worldwide. Mindfulness is a basic human trait, a way of learning to pay wisely attention to whatever is happening in our lives that allows us to feel a greater connection with our inner and outer life. Mindfulness is also a practice, a systematic method that aims to cultivate clarity, intuition, and understanding. In the context of one’s health, mindfulness becomes a means to learn with experience to take care of oneself, exploring and understanding the interaction between mind and body and mobilizing the inner resources to cope with events, grow, and heal. Nearly three decades of scientific research in the United States, Europe and, in the last decade, even here in Italy, indicate that participating in a mindfulness path can have a positive and often profound influence on the participants’ ability to reduce physical symptoms and psychological distress also learning to live life more fully.
