Why does it seem like Addictions - alcoholism, drug addiction, gambling and the like, are such subjects folks don't want to talk about here in Italy?I know personally from working in this field for a while that there are a lot of people suffering from addictions and behavioral disorders. I know them personally, their families, friends, loved ones. BUT why does it seem no one wants to talk about it? Addiction is not contagious. There are a lot of factors that contribute to someone becoming an "addict" but getting addicted by touching someone with an addictions isn't one of them.  My name is Evyan and I am working in Rome at the only Outpatient treatment center that caters to English speaking clients and I am here to help remove the stigma of addiction. I'd like to help others start talking about addiction. I am involved with a program called Drugs Over Dinner which was developed in the US. Together we can help open the dialogue to start talking, and start saving lives.If you, your school or place of work, or even your family and friends, would like to have a open frank talk about Drugs and other addictions, I am at your service. Check out the programme - its pretty wonderful. And actually you may not even need me, but I am just putting it out there that I am here to help! http://drugsoverdinner.org/#introPlease don't be afraid to talk about drugs or alcohol or anorexia or bulimia or other addictions - the only thing to fear is what happens IF YOU DON'T START TALKING NOW.

Mindfulness is a life skill which  has thirty years of research behind it demonstrating the effects of the practice.  Mindfulness practitioners have lower levels of physiological stress, a more flexible and optimistic outlook on life, greater self-compassion and self-awareness, a reduction in the intensity of negative emotions, an improved ability to concentrate, and a higher tolerance for the risk associated with stepping outside one’s comfort zone.  Practiced consistently, in other words, mindfulness cultivates well-being and resilience.This course is based on the curriculum and ethos of the eight-week standard programmes in Mindfulness-based Stress Reduction (MBSR) developed by Jon Kabat Zinn, and  Mindfulness-based Cognitive Therapy (MBCT) developed by Mark Williams et al.  For details please see  https://mindfulnessinrome.com. To reserve a place or for any questions, please contact Pam Powers on 328 087 1869 or [email protected] Powers, (BA psychology, Smith College, MA; THP: NSHAP, London; certified teacher, Mindfulness in Schools Project, UK; ACT and MBCT teacher training, Mindfulness Training Ltd, London; twenty-five years of personal practice in meditation and mindfulness disciplines), has been training individuals, groups, and organisations in mindfulness for the past twelve years.  She has a private practice in mindfulness-based psychotherapy and one-to-one training, and leads courses on various applications of mindfulness drawing on research-based methods including mindfulness-based stress reduction (MBSR), acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT), and mindfulness-based cognitive therapy (MCBT).

Do you think your body "should" be different? Do you struggle with your body image or in your relationship with food? Then join our weekly  "Yoga & Body intelligence" at Villa Borghese - next one is on Tuesday 2 September 18h00-19h30.Through a combination of yoga postures, short lectures, sharings and energy work, we will bring more understanding to our whole Being in all its 5 dimensions: physical, energetical, mental, emotional, intuitive and spiritual. The practice of Yoga shows us to listen to our body sensations, moment after moment, so we can slowly learn to respond to our needs and let go of the controlling mind with its self-judgements, comparisons, pressure on how we "should" be and "should do" etc....Letting go of all the "shoulds" creates more inner space, and inner space is an important step to freedom. From this space we can create intimacy with ourselves and trust our Body again. Let's breathe, feel, stretch, recenter and reconnect with our Body, Inner Wisdom and Joy. More info at 339.402.66.28. See you soon! Love, Amrita
