Mindful Eating teaches us to increase our awareness even while we eat: a way to feed both the body and the mind.
It is a state of awareness that starts from listening to ourselves without judgment. Starting from the breath and the present moment, Mindful Eating goes as far as exploring food through all the senses, investigating flavors, smells and emotions that emerge when we eat.
Mindful Eating leads us on a path towards awareness of the here and now, of our actual needs related to food, and of the way we are and perceive ourselves.
Each meeting lasts about two hours, alternating moments of mindfulness, design and sharing of experience. The course focuses on the awareness of emotional blocks and how to dissolve them, on the use of breath and on the identification of conscious food choices, all accompanied by a stimulating gastronomic proposal.

THE SENSES OF THE APERITIF
An opportunity to pay attention not only to eating but also to conscious drinking. The wines,

perception will change constantly. The color will give us an expectation of its taste, the smell
it might surprise us, the sound will be a discovery up to the taste that will bring us to its lands
of origin. An aperitif that will be a discovery but also the occasion of a geographical journey beyond
