Practical tools for everyday life

In the face of significant changes we can lose balance or feel blocked due to the fear and anxiety we experience.

We may feel disoriented, having difficulty in finding focus and direction to make decisions and set priorities. It is important to have an effective support network and it is equally essential to strengthen and structure our base – our own ability to deal with the challenges we face, keeping us/ourselves stable and confident.

Big changes start with small changes

Everyday is full of small opportunities to develop our ability to be present with what happens to us, whatever the circumstances. A great anchor that helps us to stay in the present is connection with the body, as well as developing our capacity for observation and awareness.

Research reveals that ongoing contemplative practices, including meditation, contribute to improving attention and memory, reducing stress, increasing confidence in challenging situations, promoting a greater sense of self-awareness, self-acceptance, well-being, resilience, preventing burnout and increasing compassionate responses.

I propose to use adversity as an opportunity to develop and learn to be more present with ourselves, with others and with what surrounds us.

Meditation is not just about formal practices, my proposal is to cultivate this presence throughout the day, from the practice of daily habits that help us to remain stable, serene and open to deal with unpredictability.

What I offer:

  • Diagnosis of needs;

  • Personal plan to integrate into daily life, adjusted to identified needs;

  • Training and application of contemplative practices in daily life and in care contexts:

- Tools to connect with your own internal resources,

- Self-care strategies,

- Tools to deal with suffering.

  • Support with information and education, as well as practical guidelines in terms of providing care.
