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 course sustainability

The Sustainable Practice • Julie Beretta

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. 

Day 1: Raising awareness

  • How do I relate to sustainability?
  • If I were to take a snapshot of a product’s life, what would it look like?
  • If I were to breakdown a system, what would it look like?
  • How can I shift my mindset from linear to circular?

Day 2: From Intentions to Actions

  • Determine a Plan
  • Set Intentions
  • Find a “Keeper”
  • Act and Look back

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.
