Mindfulness is the awareness that emerges when we pay attention to the
present moment intentionally, with openness, curiosity and without
judgments. Being aware of our bodily sensations, emotions and thoughts in a compassionate way, embracing "what is already" is an essential skill for self-care and choices towards your personal values. br />
There is scientific evidence on the effectiveness of Mindfulness-based interventions for a wide variety of mental and physical disorders,
such as anxiety, depression, chronic pain, binge eating ,
prevention of relapse to drug use, among others.
Practices are differentiated into two types: formal and informal. Formal practices refer to the use of Mindfulness meditation as a tool to develop mindfulness skills and deepen awareness of experience. Informal practices refer to the application of skills
developed in everyday contexts. Examples of informal practices are
walking, eating, listening, speaking with mindfulness. When attention is
intentionally directed towards routine tasks,
any moment experienced as a space of practice and growth can be transformed.

In the busy world we live in, we tend to operate on autopilot
. The intention of the practice is to bring mindfulness to the action moment by moment, enabling a more conscious contact in the relationship with others, the environment and with our sensations, thoughts, emotions and
needs , even in difficult situations. It means being fully in touch with the experience of the moment, without being absorbed by it.
This program is based on the experiential experience of the exercises and
different oriented practices and how they can be used in the day a daily life
for emotional regulation and quality of life.


● Foster and guide the establishment of Mindfulness practices based on focused attention, contemplation and compassion;
● Contribute to the recognition of physical, mental and emotional phenomena , instead of reacting automatically to them;
● Increase the level of awareness of sensory experiences;
● Assist in the self-management process of emotional regulation and well-being;
● Create a space of sharing personal practices and bonding the
● Facilitate the process of connecting with the present moment, with
acceptance, kindness and commitment towards personal values.


This training is based on the Quality of Life programs
Mindfulness Based at the Mindfulness Promotion Center (CPM),
Neurocognitive Body in Mind (BMT) Framework, with emphasis on the practice of
Mindfulness in Motion and Mindfulness Based Relapse Prevention (MBRP) for compulsive and reactive behaviors.

Through experiential - theoretical meetings, concepts of
Mindfulness practice based on personal experience will be approached when performing exercises
and different guided practices, group dynamics and exchange of experiences
between participants . We will explore the experiences from the perspective of
neuroscience, psychology, and the relationship between body and mind.

Texts, exercises and audios of Mindfulness practices will be
made available weekly in digital format via the internet so that they can be used between sessions to continue to develop the ability to
be present and enjoy the benefits on a daily basis.
