Mindfulness

Mindfulness is a method relying on more than 40 years of research and 50 000 scientific studies. Its base : concentration, attention of present moment, body, spirit and emotions awareness.

Simultaneously, tool, method and way of considering life, Mindfulness associates corporal exercises, self-observation and exchanges. The objective is little by little, being aware of what’s happening inside us at a certain/given (a one time) moment, in our mind, our body and being able to identify our emotions without looking for modifying them. The mental and neurological processes activated by Mindfulness, improve autoregulation of thoughts, emotions and behaviors, thus allowing a bigger serenity and access to wellness in life in general and at work in particular.
