Let me introduce to you my new Meditation Workshop based in Edinburgh, Scotland. This session is aimed to introduce you to a new daily life approach and therefore enhance your overall mental, emotional and physical well-being.

As soon as you’ve read the title of this Workshop there must have been something that you couldn’t figure out well: what’s an IBE?

Some of you might have heard of O.B.E. – Out of Body Experience. Well, in my opinion, we have OBEs all the time. What takes us away from our bodies on a daily basis is the chattering mind. We are addicted to our thoughts – negative and positive ones – which in turn elicit emotions of all kinds. I.B.E. stands for Inner Body Experience. That’s it. And the means through which we are gaining access to the IBE is our natural ability to be aware of anything we focus on. Awareness is the key. By observing neutrally our body and it’s movements we are able to experience it without the filter of our thoughts. It might seem unthinkable, but that’s rather the point: our limits go beyond the rigid schemes of the thinking mind. Alongside with IBE – our very anchor – we’ll tap into the five senses following the same mechanism. Thus we become able to observe everything in a pure and non-judgmental way, in other words we meditate.

The techniques I introduce and teach in this Workshop alone will give you some tools experience your day to day life  in a whole new way. You will gain access to a dimension of peace and stillness that lies beyond outer circumstances – and the possibility to do so has always been there. These techniques come from my personal experience and studies in the field of yoga and meditation. The myth that I’m going to debunk is that you need to sit cross-legged on a mat or in the middle of a pristine natural spot to enjoy the benefits of meditation. So, in this precise Workshop I won’t take you in the woods or by the sea – as much as I love nature and its wonders. But, starting from the Meadows, I will take you right in the middle of the crowd of Edinburgh City Center and show you how to find more peace right there. We will be walking, stopping at the traffic lights, sitting around, observe things, and maybe have some food or a coffee together. Pretty common activities, isn’t it? It’s HOW we’ll do it that changes everything.

First and foremost, we will talk about some theory in order to apply it.. Afterwards we will dive deep into the practice and the techniques. The Workshop is 1 hour and a half long and it costs £22 per person (payments in cash or via paypal before the course). A maximum of four people at a time can attend and it’s necessary to book via. The Workshop is available in english, but I speak italian and some french too, which might facilitate the english learners from those countries. The price includes planting two trees with https://onetreeplanted.org/ in an area of your choice (Africa, Asia, Latin America and North America.)
