Have you always wanted to meditate but it's hard for you to sit still and focus on your breath? Meditation needn't be still. It can be active, dynamic, creative and fun! Join me on this journey of exploring alternative meditation techniques while at the same time enjoying Lisbon waterfront scenery. These techniques are easy to learn and you can later practise them at home! Our journey begins in Praca de Comercio, where we will use the square's architecture for our Walking meditation sequence. From the square we will move to the waterfront to take part into Mindful Observation technique. While watching the river activities: ferries and wave movements, we will witness the present moment and focus on the clarity of mind. After that we will explore some Creative meditation techniques such as leaving our trace in the sand and some other fun creative forms. We will finish the session with Silent meditation sequence: switching our phones to the flight mode and listening to the silence from our earplugs. Depending on the group's preferances, the techniques can involve more movement or more creativity, it's up to you. I will gladly share what works for me and for my clients. Welcome!
Hi, I'm Paula. Welcome to Lisbon! I'm a massage therapist trained in Ayurveda and Taoist body techniques. These ancient approaches to healthy living focus around the body and mind. Finding the right balance between physical and mental activities is what we should all aim for. That's why mental hygiene is as important as physical one. In our busy lifestyle many people struggle to keep calm and find peace of mind. In my work I meet clients who would like to sit still and meditate but it's hard for them to do that. Therefore I always look for alternative ways to help them achieve the same results: inner calm and peace of mind. Active meditation techniques will engage both the body and the mind. And they are also so much fun. :) Why not give it a try! :-) This unique experience is tailored for small groups, use it to your own benefit.
a little gift to say thank you for being present in the moment
We will meet at the impressive Praca de Comercio, one of Lisbon's central square's with rich history behind it. The architectural elements of symetry of the square will serve as perfect scenery for our meditative activities. We will see many statues and palaces and learn a little bit about the history of each. We will also witness the beauty of the river Tagus and the amazing sunsets seen from the waterfront.
最多可有1位年满18周岁的参与者参加。 I dont live in Lisbon. Therefore I offer this experience only on some dates when I'm in the city. Thank you for understanding.

This experience is designed for one person so you can benefit the most from this session. The best part is you take this 'knowledge' with you and use it later in your everyday life. The techniques do not follow any religious philosophy. All welcome! Especially beginners!
