The Alchemy of the Heart: Improving Stress Resistance and Emotion Management to Increase Mind-Body Balance

Alexia Bianchi and Monica Canducci are pleased to invite you to the meeting dedicated to "The Alchemy of the Heart" which will take place on Sunday 14 July at 6 pm in Covignano, in the splendid setting of Casa 280, via Covignano n.280, Rimini (RN).

Experiential meeting, rose tea & rosé wine on the grass.

How often do we think we would like the world to change for the better?

How many times have we read the invitation to "become" the change we would like to see in the world?

What can we do to transform our response to stressful events, to uncertainty, to situations that put us in difficulty so as to increasingly improve our mind-body-emotional balance and experience stability regardless of the circumstances?

And, above all...

Why "The Alchemy of the Heart"?

In many spiritual traditions, the heart is considered the healer and gateway to the spiritual realm.

In the Hermetic tradition, the heart is associated with the Sun and Gold.

The Alchemists aimed at transforming Lead into Gold.

Through some easy-to-perform exercises, we can turn our heart into a powerful alchemical tool that helps us transform our inner lead into gold, that is, our life challenges and our inner limits into precious resources.

In fact, the most recent scientific research shows us that:

  • the brain "receives orders" from the heart much more than the heart receives orders from the brain;

  • the heart has a central role in achieving emotional, physical, and mental well-being;

  • we can regulate the activity of our heart starting from breathing and simple exercises that involve perception and our ability to imagine.

In the meeting, we will experience how we can create transformations on both a physical and emotional level by bringing attention to our heart and breathing. ​

● 6pm-6.30pm: welcome of participants, presentation by Alexia Bianchi and introduction to the workshop by Monica Canducci

● 6.30pm - 7.45pm: experiential practice led by Monica (outdoors or indoors, depending on the weather!), which includes simple imaginative, breathing and gentle movement techniques.

● 7.45 pm: to conclude and celebrate with a convivial moment, rose tea and rosé wine.

We recommend comfortable clothes and footwear (with the possibility of possibly being barefoot)... and a playful attitude!
