NEUROSYSTEMICS MINDFULNESS RETREATS

.

Cross-fertilizing ancient teaching of Mindfulness and compassion with systemic and state of the art neuroscientific data, NeuroSystemics retreats provide a rich context to connect to one’s direct experience.

There are 4 main domains of practices proposed in this approach, with shifting emphases on each retreat:

  1. Mindfulness & Dharma practices
  2. Community
  3. Systemic somatic coaching
  4. Eco-social empowerment

Mindfulness & dharma practices

The way is in the heart – follow it and be transformed by it.”

The core of the retreat involves a schedule of silent practice sessions based on the Buddhist four foundations of Mindfulness (satipatthana): Mindfulness of the body, feelings, mind and other all other experiences. Other heart-centered practices include the brahma-viharas (compassion, friendliness, joy and equanimity) and gratitude.

Community & belonging

“Together we go further.”

The retreat provides a safe and caring setting for community-building engagement and playfulness. Compassion circles, mindful communication and participatory peer-groups enable a sense of belonging and relational spaces for a deeper transformation of one’s inner experience.

Neurobiologically-informed teachings & coaching

“Towards resilience & embodiment.

The teachings offered embody an understanding of neurobiological functioning of the human nervous system. Professionals trained in systemic somatics will be assisting the retreat and help accompany the meditative development of practice through individual resiliency sessions.  Please note these sessions are not therapy.

Collective awakening & structural resilience

Hope with sleeves rolled up.”

In the exploration of individual, social and structural empowerment, reflective spaces are proposed for a collective inquiry into ways to strengthen resilience in the face of the climate crisis and social challenges.
