We will focus on how to sit, how to breathe, how to relate to thoughts and feeling, dive in to some dynamics of the ego, and see how your mind tricks you every time.I will give you lots of practical exercises and tips to integrate meditation in your daily life. I promise you that if you commit to this course and do the exercises you will get more focus, peace of mind and happiness in your life.

I started with zen meditation more than 8 years ago, now I am a certified yoga instructor and hold a Master's degree in Communication Science. After developing many interpersonal communication trainings for the corporate world (from banks to local government) for a start up I feel it is time for me to focus on another passion: helping people to obtain peace of mind, focus and happiness.
