The Mindfulness sessions organised by the Técnico Student Club on Mental Health and Inclusion, in collaboration with Técnico Students’ Union (AEIST), are still going on at Técnico.
Each session lasts about 40 minutes, guided by Cricha Carvalho, a member of the Wild Flower Zen Sangha Association and its Portuguese counterpart. In these sessions it is possible to take a break during the day and reconnect with primary sensations such as breathing.
The next sessions are scheduled for the 1st, 15th and 29th of March. A Facebook group has been created for sharing events (in person or online) and information about the Mindfulness sessions at Técnico.
Mindfulness is a practice that, when done on a regular basis, can help us to deal in a less reactive way with the less positive emotions and circumstances that come with everyday life.
