Mindful Art: The Practice of Presence, presented by Aitia

We begin at the doorway of mindfulness and enter through the practice of creative and non judgemental expression, celebrating our own individual definitions of our internal and external worlds.

You will learn to build intimacy and non-verbal communication with ourselves and with others, in order to understand and explore the different ways we interpret sensory information and its emotional attachments to us. Playing with a series of different objects to feel from and different materials to feel with, we open our minds to be fully present. Observing the sensations and allowing the body to speak to us what it feels.

We unlock not only a unique communication we have with ourselves and others, but also our own exclusive, non-judgemental artistry.

How to bring Mindfulness into your relationships? Presented by Aitia

Friction is a fire starter. From cozy bonfires to devastating house fires it can cause a full range of uses and impacts. It can be a spark that acts as a catalyst or a spark that produces a conflict burning everything from real bridges to the metaphorical ones that form and connect our relationships. Whether disagreement or misunderstanding, we can rub each other the wrong way, intentionally or otherwise we tend to speak the language of the jackel, one of judgement, blame and disconnection. "It's not me, it's him/ her that has to change" is what we proclaim. And if that interaction gets out of hand it can do irreparable damage to our relationships. This applies to friendships, intimate relationships and our parent-child relationships as well.

Mindful Communication is the water that puts out those friction-induced fires before they get out of control. It allows us to connect with ourselves and with each other in a non-violent way that allows our natural compassion to flourish. When practice mindful communication enables us to let go of own judgements, embrace and accept each other’s needs, moving from a place of “I” to “we” to create a connected family and community. By taking a step back and approaching our interactions with mindfulness we become better listeners and are able to close that gap between us and those with whom we are communicating. It allows us to rephrase communication of others in a way that unfolds their true intentions and meanings.

Be the best version of yourself with Mindful Parenting, presented by Ailita

In our quest as parents to give the best to our children; the best education, the best home, the best activities and opportunities, we often forget to give them the best version of ourselves. When we don’t take care of ourselves both physically and emotionally, we are then less equipped to take care of those we love. We cannot give to others what we don’t yet have ourselves. Our emotions are contagious and our children pick up in an instant what we are projecting. If we are nervous, tired irritable, our children will mirror us and act the same. If we are calm, happy, caring, again they will respond accordingly.

Through mindful parenting we can learn to regulate our emotions and create a healthy and stable environment in which our relationship with our children can flourish. Mindfulness in parenting is after all bringing the practice of being present and aware in our interactions with our children. Furthermore it is the practice of non-judgment in our familial relationships. This non-judgment is crucial to mindfulness in that once we are aware of ourselves we must practice it to make a cognitive choice, not just a knee jerk reaction. Turning these reactions in to thoughtful decisions can be the change that stops family trauma or the continuation of potentially harmful patters that we often pass down through our family tree. Our inner world is ultimately projected on to our children making it also their inner world. We want that world to be the best for them, so we must first make it the best for us.
