The breath slows down, the body melts and the mind gets in touch with the deepest part of oneself. This is the sense of well-being that is achieved through the practice of mindfulness in Calabria.

But what exactly is mindfulness? Literally consciousness, this discipline teaches us to be present to ourselves and what is happening around us, in a flow that includes gestures, smells, sounds, thoughts and sensations.

Meditation in Cosenza

If you are looking for a meditation experience in Cosenza and its province, know that there is a varied offer of specialised centres and teachers capable of guiding you in this practice with professionalism.

These are almost always group activities that allow one to rediscover a balanced relationship with others as well as oneself. Some examples? Among the most interesting proposals  of meditation in Cosenza and mindfulness in Calabria are those based on the realisation of collective mandàla.

An ancient oriental practice, in use mainly by Buddhist and Hindu monks, the mandàla consists of the creation of a circular figure (often symbolising the sun or moon) evoking the principle of origin and change of the universe. There are many techniques and materials to make it and the result is always an extraordinary work of art.

Several meditation centres in Cosenza also propose the vocal approach to mantra, or the repetition of particular sounds and words that have the power to "unblock" the body's energy centres, bringing attention to the vibrations and breath in which they resonate. Whether individual or group, mantra infuses an immediate benefit to those who practice it.

The most suitable places for meditation in Cosenza? Among the city parks in the centre, certainly the beautiful Villa Vecchia. Spacious and well-kept, this villa is among the city's historic gardens and offers perfect views for meditation.

Mindfulness in Catanzaro

If, on the other hand, you are looking for the right place to practise mindfulness in Catanzaro and the surrounding area, to stay on the subject of public gardens, the Mediterranean Biodiversity Park is one of the best-kept and best-equipped green areas in Calabria.

It is a large garden in the heart of the capital, where you can immerse yourself in mindfulness and meditation sessions in the meadows, walking along paths dotted with contemporary art installations, or simply getting in touch with the flora and fauna around you.
