Meditation from Barcelona city to Galician villages

New car, expensive dress or vacation in Canarias? We often think that happiness comes from outside. How about looking inside to realize that we can be happy here and now? How about meditation? In order to share the benefits of meditation and mindfulness, from September 19 to October 1 Peace Revolution Spain organizes a tour where two certified meditation trainers – Alejandra Barbé Sevilla and Agnija Kazuša – will teach meditation and share their experiences about mindful living during sessions in different venues in Barcelona, Madrid, Asturias and Galicia.

AGNI+ALE

The idea to organize a meditation tour was born after a successful implementation of PIPO (Peace In, Peace Out) series last December in Barcelona when during four days of sessions around 700 learnt about meditation and mindfulness. Hence, the September tour will start in Barcelona where it will also celebrate the International Day of Peace on September 21 with a session in Hospitalet de Llogregat. Further on, the tour will lead to Madrid with a morning session in Retiro Park and an evening session in the ICT school. From there, the tour will reach Asturias with a session in Oviedo, and finally Galicia stopping at big cities like A Coruña, Santiago, Vigo and Ourense, as well as villages, like Amoeiro and Ribadavia, where the gala session the White Night will be held.

During each session, the participants will be introduced to the basic techniques of meditation, which they will be able to try in a guided meditation session. Then, the benefits of meditation and mindfulness will be explained showing links between meditation and stress management, creativity, healthy relationships, self-empowerment and other fields. The trainers will also share their experiences on how mediation helps them overcome daily challenges.
