“Do you have the patience to wait till your mud settles and the water is clear?”

- Lao-Tzu, Tao-te-Ching -

 

In a world that is more and more connected, we can feel being less and less connected to ourselves and to those who matter in our families and our communities. In a world that moves faster and faster, we can find ourselves running and spinning, having lost our direction and vision. In a world that changes all the time, we can find ourselves fearful of uncertainty and far from fully experiencing the beauty of renewal in our daily lives.

 

Mindfulness is a natural human quality, a way of paying attention to whatever is arising in one’s life that allows a deeper sense of connection inwardly and outwardly.

 

Mindfulness is also a practice to cultivate specific attitudes such as acceptance, non-judgement, patience, and compassion, while experientially learning the continuous interplay between mind and body. With such clarity and understanding, we learn to take better care of ourselves, mobilizing our own inner resources for coping and growing. We also learn not to escape or avoid what life brings in our present, but we accept and become able to move on with a new understanding, and with less stress and burdening.

 

In this day of silence we are going to explore this innate ability of awareness. We will learn how to develop our focus through breath, body, feelings, thoughts, and the external environment. Through guided practices, we will alternate periods of sitting and movement (mindful walking, qi-gong, yoga). Far from being the scary and discomforting experience it might seem, being in silence for a longer period is reported by most as a deeply refreshing and restoring experience.

 

Mindfulness grows on a 2,500 years old tradition of meditation. Its positive impact is now supported by many decades of academic research. Companies the like of Google, Unilever, The Huffington Post, Patagonia, and entrepreneurs in the Silicon Valley, use mindfulness practice to improve well-being, communication, creativity, clarity, decision making, leadership.

 

 

This retreat is guided in English, and is held from 10 am to 4,30 pm on Saturday, 5 July 2014. No previous experience is required. If you have any questions, you can contact Maurizio at .

“From not for profit to social enterprise: meet with Aimée Abra Tenu, a social entrepreneur form rural Africa…” (in French)
A l’occasion du déjeuner, Aimée Abra Tenu, femme engagée d’origine togolaise, vous présentera les défis d’une jeune entrepreneuse sociale africaine en 2014 !

Venez nombreux échanger avec nous !

Aimee

Depuis son plus jeune âge, Aimée Abra Tenu est engagée comme citoyenne active et fondatrice d’ONG, active d’abord dans l’accompagnement pour les enfants défavorisés, puis dans le développement communautaire (environnement, alphabétisation des femmes, éducation des enfants etc.). En 2009, Aimée Abra Tenu décide de transformer ses initiatives en « Social entreprise », lui permettant de développer des business model générateurs de revenus (de la transformation de déchets, aux savons de luxe).

Son objectif final, l’autonomisation et l’indépendance financière des populations soutenues, signifie que ses initiatives passent le relai aux bénéficiaires, qui deviennent alors entrepreneurs du développement de leurs communautés.

Aimée a été reconnue en recevant divers prix ( entre autres « prix de l’excellence féminine ouest-africain » délivré par Hokan International à Cotonou en 2009, le prix « JCI The Outstanding Young Persons of the World » dans la catégorie « Leadership accomplissement en éducation »…).

L’une de ses structures, “Zam-Ké” – littéralement « Utilises moi encore » en dialecte local,- a reçu l’appui du forum Young African Women Leaders de la First Lady Michele OBAMA en 2011.

Cet évènement est réalisé en collaboration avec JCI Luxembourg.

“Avez-vous la patience d’attendre que la boue se depose et que l’eau soit claire?”

- Lao-Tzu, Tao-te-Ching -

 Sans titre2

Dans un monde de plus en plus connecté, on peut se retrouver de moins en moins connectés à nous-mêmes et à ceux qui sont plus importants dans nos familles et nos communautés. Dans un monde qui va de plus en plus vite, on peut se retrouver en train de courir et tourner, mais ayant perdu notre direction et notre vision. Dans un monde qui change sans arrêt, on peut se retrouver face plein d’incertitudes et loin de l’expérience profonde de la beauté du renouvellement dans notre vie quotidienne.

 

La pleine conscience est une qualité humaine naturelle, une façon de faire attention à tout ce qui apparaît dans notre vie, et qui nous permet de développer un sens plus profond de connexion avec nous-même et le monde extérieur.

 

La pleine conscience est aussi une pratique pour cultiver des attitudes spécifiques comme acceptation, non-jugement, patience et compassion. À travers une expérience directe on apprend à observer le ‘jeu’ continu entre corps et esprit. Avec cette clarté et compréhension, en vivant le moment présent, on apprend à mieux prendre soin de nous-mêmes, en utilisant nos ressources internes pour faire face aux défis et nous développer. On apprend aussi à ne pas nier ni fuir les événements de notre vie, mais à accepter, en devenant capables de suivre nos chemins avec plus de compréhension et moins de stress.

 

Pendant cette journée de silence, on explorera cette qualité innée d’attention et observation. On apprendra à la développer à travers la respiration, le corps, les émotions, les pensées, et l’environnement externe. En suivant des pratiques guidées, on alternera des périodes assis et en mouvement (marche de pleine conscience, qi-gong, yoga). Loin d’être effrayant et inconfortable comme on pourrait penser, rester en silence pendant une longue période est pour la plupart une expérience profonde de relaxation et ré-connexion à soi-même.

 

La pleine conscience se base sur des pratiques millénaires de méditation. Son impact positif est démontré par quelques décennies de recherche clinique et académique. Des compagnies comme Google, Unilever, The Huffington Post, Patagonia, et les entrepreneurs de la Silicon Valley, utilisent la pleine conscience pour améliorer le bien-être, la communication, la créativité, la clarté, la capacité de décision, et le leadership.

 

La pratique est guidée en français. Le séminaire est prévu pour le samedi 12 Juillet 2014 à The Impactory, à partir de 10h jusqu’à 16h30. Aucune expérience préalable est nécessaire. Pour toute question : .
