Mindfulness: taking care of the world by taking care of yourself • Fabrizio Giuliani

Over these 5 weeks, we will take care of the environment by taking care of ourselves. If it seems like a paradox, it’s because it is. The practice of mindfulness is a paradox for the conceptual mind but it is through this practice that we begin to develop an intuitive intelligence that goes beyond thought. It is the very same intelligence that trees employ to produce a fruit. 

By learning to cultivate mindfulness, benevolence, compassion, joy and equanimity, we create an internal compass that directs us towards a healthier path for us, those around us, our planet and all living beings without distinction.

“Love tells me that I am everything and wisdom tells me that I am nothing and in between the two my life flows” – Sri Nasargadatta Maharaj.

The Sustainable Practice • Julie Beretta

Many of us wish to make changes in our lives, yet oftentimes, thinking about sustainability can make us feel confused, anxious, inappropriate, guilty or even angry.

Wouldn’t it be nice to talk about sustainability without feeling overwhelmed? Wouldn’t it be nice to gain a bit of clarity, share ideas, and collectively identify where we could perhaps intervene?

This course is an opportunity to practice a new type of relationship to this topic. It is a space to have an honest conversation about sustainability; an invitation to observe yourself and the world around you, gain clarity, set concrete intentions, and turn those into actions. 

CLASS 1: Self-Awareness
An introspective journey to understand our current relationship to sustainability and the one we wish to nurture.

CLASS 2: Micro Awareness
Using Life Cycle Analysis as a tool to understand how our world works on a micro level and looking at circular economy as a potential solution to the issues observed.

CLASS 3: Macro Awareness
Using Systems Thinking as a tool to understand how our world works on a macro level and drawing maps to try and create connections and determine possible interventions.

CLASS 4: From Intention to Action
We’ll focus on disruption. How can we disrupt systems to implement changes in our lives? How do we go from intention to action?

CLASS 5: Back to the Self
We started with the self and it is important to re-check in with ourselves. How do we feel about this journey? Where do we stand? What works for us? What doesn’t? Let’s talk about it.

Who is Julie Beretta?

Educator at heart, passionate about sustainability, yoga and words. Julie facilitates spaces across cultures to explore ideas, feelings and beliefs through vulnerability and active listening. She believes having such «confident and compassionate» conversations can lead to real transformations in our lives. She is looking to connect with people who are also working to create positive change in the world.
